Four Things to Do After You're Engaged

Did you say yes to a Valentine's proposal? Or are you still reveling over your Christmas or New Year's Eve proposal? Congrats!!

Getting engaged is an exciting, sometimes overwhelming time. To keep the focus on the excitement of it all, we at Bremer Jewelry are sharing some of the the first things to do after they put a ring on it. 

She said yes! Now what?

Take a selfie.
Your engagement ring should be your new favorite piece of jewelry. After you've shared the exciting news with your family and friends, it's time to make the important social media announcement and sow that ring off! But before you get overly snap happy (remember, posting just one photo will make the most impact), read these tips from Brides on how to get the best #engagementringselfie!

Explore the wedding date and venue. 
The rest of wedding planning can wait, but it is important to check dates with your chosen wedding venue as many fill up fast a year or more in advance.

Hearts on Fire rings
Shop for wedding bands.
The engagement ring symbolizes your promise to marry the love of your life. The wedding bands, however, represent the vows you make to each other on your wedding day. Most often, they are the only items you have left after the wedding has ended. They are your daily reminders of the promises you made to each other on the best day of your life.

Just like every relationship is unique, we’re pretty sure that you want wedding rings that are as unique and beautiful as the lifetime love you are celebrating. It is best to give yourself about two to four months to allow for unrushed shopping, ordering and shipping of a designer wedding band, or the creation of a totally custom ring by one of Bremer’s goldsmiths.

Enjoy being a newlywed!
After you get a few fun to-do's out of the way, sit back and enjoy the newly engaged bliss! Planning will include hundreds of to-do's to think about later. Make sure you take time to enjoy this moment. Congratulations!
