engaged basics

Congratulations -- you're getting married! But once that "just engaged" feeling starts to fade, another emotion starts to sink in: panic! If you're like most couples, you probably have two sets of family and friends pressuring you for dates, colors, and locations of your impending nuptials. Our advice? Take a deep breath. Yes, it's true you have a lot of decisions to make in the next few months but, for now, take time to enjoy being engaged. As you get closer and closer to getting married, we'll help break down your to-do list into manageable bites. If you're looking for a crash course in where to begin, start with our top ten list of what to do when you've just gotten engaged. From announcing your engagement to narrowing the guest list, we make it easy to figure out what you should do when you're just engaged and what tasks can wait until closer to the big day. The most important thing is to enjoy the journey because your engagement will be over before you know it (even if right now it seems like your wedding day is a million years away!). When you're done here, head over to the Wedding Planning channel to start crafting your ideal wedding day for you and your new fiance.
