It is a well-known fact that wintertime is one of the most popular times of the year when it comes to engagements – and it is perfectly understandable why. With so many lovely holidays embracing us all, this season seems to be just perfect to put a ring on it.

If you are already engaged, you definitely want to start wedding planning as soon as possible – but what are some of the very first steps to take once you have said “yes” to the ring?

We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.

· Take a moment to celebrate. Not with everyone just yet, just with your loved one. Go to a restaurant, have a glass of wine or Champagne and a nice dinner. Seize the beauty of this moment and make for wonderful memories together – it will be more than worth it!

· Make your announcement. Before you go to Facebook and Instagram to show off the stunning piece on your finger, take some time to personally announce your parents and your closest friends. You really don’t want them to find out about the big moment after your old high school mates do, right?

· Insure your ring. This might not seem like the most romantic thing to do after the engagement, but it can save you from a lot of trouble. Jewelry insurance is pretty affordable, and given that the value of this ring goes beyond its price tag, you should definitely go for it. Depending on your exact policy, there are a lot of unfortunate events you could be covered for – including loss and stealth. So yes, this is worth it!

· Plan the engagement party. There are really no rules when it comes to this – aside from the fact that everyone invited to the engagement party should be invited to the wedding as well. Other than that, feel free to gather people at a restaurant, to throw a fancy house party, or simply a barbecue with your closest friends and relatives. Anything goes – after all, this is your celebration!
