Got engaged recently?


Your boyfriend has just popped the question – so, what next?

Well, before you go and change your Facebook status from “in a relationship” to “engaged”, there are a few things you need to keep in mind.

Don’t invite everyone
Don’t tell every Tom, Dick and Harry that they’ll totally be invited to the wedding – remember, you can’t un-invite them.

Don’t tell your bridesmaids that you’ll pay for everything
These are the kinds of things you need to discuss with your future hubby first.

Don’t tell your mum that she can help with all the planning
While you may be on cloud nine now, you won’t be when your mum starts pressuring you to invite certain people.

Don’t buy the first dress you see
The best part about planning for a wedding is trying on the dresses.

Don’t forget about your partner’s family
They are going to be a part of your future life and you won’t want to start off on the wrong foot.
