Happy New Year everyone! The holidays have come and gone again, and with them the yearly “engagement season.” I’m sure there are plenty of ladies out there sporting some new sparkle! Please share your stories and pictures with us!
Unsure what to do next? Here are some ideas to get you started.
- Get a manicure. Tough chore, right?! You’ll be showing that hand off a lot more now, so get it cleaned up!
- Get that ring insured! It may seem frivolous, but most jewelry policies cover loss, damage, or theft 100%, so you don’t have to worry about replacement costs. Have the ring appraised by a jeweler you trust, then research different companies. I personally love Jewelers Mutual, but often you can have the ring covered through your homeowner’s insurance or renter’s policy as well.
- Take time to enjoy engagement. As exciting as it is, don’t start planning the wedding immediately. Take time to relish the new state of your relationship. Likely your ideas of what you want for your wedding will change as you and your new fiancé start brainstorming, so you don’t want to get locked into anything you may regret later.
Again, congratulations everyone!
