Not Getting Married Anytime Soon? How To Make The Most Of Being Engaged!

Some couples decide that they need to plan their wedding for as soon as possible after they get engaged.

Others may decide to take their time, particularly if they want to save money up or have other things to think about before the wedding planning can really kick in.

Whilst planning a wedding far in advance has a number of benefits, it does have some drawbacks too.

The main one being that you may find that the excitement of being engaged fizzles out before the excitement of planning a wedding kicks in.

So, how do you make the most of being engaged?

Here are some of our top tips on how to extend those butterflies at having a ring on your finger.

Make sure that your wedding planning is something you do together

If you have some time before you get married then you can really make the most of the planning part of the process.

Unfortunately, sometimes planning can be stressful.

One of the best ways to make the most of it, is to make sure it is something that you do together.

Laughing through it is going to be the best way to approach it.

Plan evenings in with a takeaway and your guests lists, attend plenty of wedding fayres and cake tasting sessions.

All of these things are a great way to make sure that you enjoy the beginning part of planning a wedding, and that you do it together.

Go away on holiday together to celebrate being engaged

For those couples that are yet to have a family, getting engaged is the perfect excuse to celebrate your relationship.

When you are saving up for your wedding day you are likely to cut out treats and holidays, so why not have one last break?

Plan a romantic getaway for the two of you, somewhere exciting that you will really look forward to!

Have an engagement photoshoot

It may sound cheesy, but an engagement photoshoot is a great idea.

Not only does it allow you to meet and work with your chosen photographer for your big day, but it also helps you to relax in front of the camera.

If you get it done early enough, then you could even use the amazing photos that they capture as your wedding day invitations!

Don’t scrimp on the story

If someone asks you how your partner proposed, don’t shrug it off and think that they don’t actually want to hear it.

Everyone loves a good proposal story, so even if it was on the sofa at home watching TV, tell people.

Not only will they love to hear all about it, but you are likely to find that each and every time you tell the story you will get some butterflies in your stomach!

One final point is to always make sure that you introduce your fiancé as such.

It won’t be long before you won’t be able to do that, so enjoy every single second of knowing that in time you will be a husband or wife!
