And after the proposal?10 things that no one will tell you… besides us!
It doesn’t matter how long you have already been with your beau before he got on one knee, and it doesn’t matter how many times you have been a maid of honor or how many weddings you have attended as a guest. There are things that you will find out only when you will get engaged. And of course, will reveal you all of them. One by one…
- You will look like a mess when he will propose.
Okay maybe we exaggerate a little bit! The point is that you will not expected, and what you have already seen in romantic movies just forget it! There are no men like that out there. The important thing is when he’ll propose, either it is on your couch in your pjs, or in a classy restaurant, or on the beach with salt in your hair and sand on your feet, just think that this wedding proposal is much better that any other you have seen because it is your story! So do not be frustrated if you have a pimple on the forehead! Trust us, this is a detail you can skip when you will tell the story to your friends and family and one day to your kids!
- You will tell the story of the proposal like a million times.
Nope we do not exaggerate! Not at all! The first reaction to anyone you’ll announce that you are getting married will be “Ohh! How did he propose?”. So be prepared to tell this story countless times. Trust us… it is funny! It is probably the best part of the wedding planning!
- You won’t stop looking at you finger!
Hello! You need to ask? Every girl will look her finger if there was an amazing rock to bling there. Sometimes you will hear it calling you, and as much as you resist at the end you will always take a peak. The best part? You will have the chance to show it off to friends and family. Unless you don’t like it, so you must just ignore that rule!
- Everyone will ask you when and where the wedding will be.
You haven’t already realized that you are getting married and that he just proposed, and for sure you haven’t set a date yet. Everyone will ask you all the time, because they are so happy and excited. Ignore them, enjoy the fact that you have a wedding to plan and answer them… “We haven’t set a date yet! We have some time ahead, before start planning!”.
- Not everyone will be happy..
There is always someone that will feel jealous with your exciting news and will show! Don’t bother! His-her reaction says a lot for him-her and not you! Ignore him-her! The end!
- Your best friends will definitely be there for you!
They are those crazy friends that will hug you the warmest, will give you the most kisses, they will scream to the news, they will cry and jump around the moment you will announce you are getting married! Do not lose sight of those friends! They are the ones that will stand by you during the wedding planning and trust us you want them to be there more than anything!
- Your married friends will suddenly become marriage experts and will want to share their experience with you.
There are two friends’ categories here. Those that feel sad that their moment has passed and want to relive it through you and those who actually think they are doing you a favor by giving you advices. Listen to them but do not overdo it. Keep only what you want. The rest just ignore them!
- Romantic movies will be your guilty pleasure for now on.
Oh yeah! It is a guilty pleasure that you will enjoy during your wedding planning. Watch again “My best friend’s wedding”, or “The father of the bride”, or “Runaway bride” or “Bridesmaids”. You will love them in a different way and you will enjoy that…
- It will be really hard not to start planning right away.
We would advise you not to, but we know it will be very hard. You will instantly start checking wedding dresses, venues, wedding invitations and guest favors. Take a deep breath. The engagement period is an amazing period! Try to enjoy it and not lose it by diving into a crazy wedding planning period!
- Your relationship will be different, even if you have been living together for many years.
Come one… you have heard this one before and probably you would have made fun of it. R you have sworn that will never happen to you. Yes, it will! But before you get all stressed out, we should tell you that his change is not necessarily bad. You bond will be stronger now. He is not your boyfriend anymore. He is your fiancé, your future husband, the future father of your children. You have taken an important decision and it is more than logic to see each other differently from now on. But it will be with a more loving and determining look!
