What to do after you get engaged


Congratulations!  He asked, you said yes. Now what?

We offer a wedding planning service that will help you get started with planning your wedding day. Read on to find out what to do after you get engaged.

Engagement Ring

If your other half hasn’t got you a ring yet, it’s time to go shopping! Be sure to get your engagement ring insured. It’s not worth the risk if it gets damaged or lost.


Enjoy the engagement. Sit back and enjoy this special time for at least a few weeks before you start the planning process.

Engagement Party

Whether you opt for a low key affair at your place, book a restaurant, area in a bar or hire an event venue, get all your close friends and family together to celebrate.


Think about how long it will take you to save if you haven’t already done so. Then narrow dates down by season and then month. Have a few dates in mind when you start visiting venues.


Start compiling ideas on Pinterest, through brainstorming or creating your own scrapbooks by using magazine cuttings. Decide on a wedding theme or colour scheme.


Put together a wedding budget and draft guest list.

Bridal Party

Decide on who your bridesmaids, best man and ushers will be and go ahead and ask them.


Put together a to-do list, with completion dates, to help you stay organised.


Book a venue, the rest of the planning process relies on it.

Wedding Insurance

Wedding insurance can protect you against a range of unfortunate events and help make sure that you are not out of pocket as a result. A good policy can cover everything from damage to wedding attire, failure of suppliers or cancellation due to illness or a bereavement.
