A Valentine's Day Engagement
Engaged on Valentine's Day? Huge congratulations! You're no doubt bathing in the warmth of all the love that's being shown to you - and quite rightly! So what's next?
Well you might be thinking about an engagement party, or at least a gathering to show off that beautiful shiny ring that you just can't stop admiring!
In the meantime, try to have some time alone with your Valentine, to discuss an outline of your plans so that when friends and family ask those inevitable questions such as where and when... you are both singing off the same hymn-sheet.
If you really don't have any idea of your wedding venue or when the wedding might be then it might be an idea if you both say: "It's a secret for now but we'll let you know in the next couple of months." This will give you time to work out your budget, shortlist of venues and a realistic date, having made some initial inquiries with venues and/or suppliers of event services.
You're probably going to have to stay quite tight-lipped so you don't don't end up with a list of bridesmaids, as along as your arm!
Enjoy the warm, cosy glow of being engaged and take the time to work through your plans and present those plans, first to those closest to you - the bush telegraph will take over from there and you'll find yourself getting swept along by a wave of excited friends and relations.
Once again, congratulations, we look forward to making your day very special.
