It is very easy to feel a little overwhelmed once you have  taken this big step. Remember there are so many things to do to plan for your wedding  and you are probably not sure where you  should start?  Of course it is always a smart choice  to hire a destination wedding planner, especially  if you choose Paris as a destination. We have prepared a list of 7 keys things you could do once you are engaged with the love of your life !

1. Share the news with your loved ones

Do you know how happy your relatives and close friends are when they see you happy. You have to let them know first, and actually you want the entire world to know about the new. Think about how you would prefer to make the announcement. Planning a nice dinner with your both parents is always a good idea,  you can  be more the modern bride tobe and go though the social media. You will definitely have to tell your proposal story over and over again. Some may be less supportive than the rest of your friends. Try not to let the negative water down the positive !


2. Take care of your ring

I bet you can’t take your eyes off your beautiful engagement ring ! You have been dreaming about it since you were a girl, and it’s just right here !  Since it is of he most expensive piece of jewelry you’ have , make sure to take some good precaution. Does it fit perfectly so it doesn’t accidentally slip off your finger, did you consider getting a ring insurance if you were to loose it ?  At last but no eats, since everybody will stare at your ring, you can consider getting a beautiful french manicure to show it off !
