We recently had the privilege of being a part of an engagement style shoot brought together by The Rising Tide Society! It was tons of fun getting to work with some amazing photographers and creative industry professionals! We enjoyed this shoot so much we thought we’d shine a light on what happens after a couple’s engagement that leads up to the big day! From announcements to engagement parties, here’s the scoop on where to begin with your new fiancé!

Share the news!

Sharing with those you love that you’ve gotten engaged is the first step to “I do!” and an important one. Whether or not you plan on inviting someone to the big day most couples choose to send an engagement announcement to everyone. More often these days the engagement announcement is taken more informally and announced through social media. It’s up to you to decide on a social media post or a traditional paper or evite announcement, however, both of these options need one thing to make the announcement...

Engagement Photos!

A picture is worth a thousand words! Choose a cute outfit or two, hire a photographer and say cheese! This is the perfect moment to capture you and the love of your life in perfect newly engaged bliss before you get busy with wedding planning. You can use the photos from the shoot for your engagement announcements, save the dates, invitations and wedding website!

Choose your Wedding Party

Choosing bridesmaids and groomsmen can be a bit challenging, choosing from those that you love in what seems like picking favorites. But there’s no need to fear, choose those that ultimately want the best for you and your fiancé; the people that are there for you through thick and thin and you know will help you out with whatever you need during this time of planning and celebrating.

Choose your Wedding Planner

It’s never too early to enlist a little help in wedding planning. Choosing your wedding planner early gives you plenty of time to get all the little details in order. A wedding planner can not only help plan your wedding but also your honeymoon and engagement party! Inviting your wedding planner to your engagement party can also allow them to meet your wedding party; who are just as vital in the planning process as the wedding planner themselves, both will be working together to help you develop your special day!

It’s time for the party!! An engagement party is the perfect way to introduce your families to each other and other members of the wedding party that otherwise haven’t met before. You and your wedding party are going to be seeing a lot of each other from now on, why not let everyone get to know each other in a casual setting. Sit back and enjoy the moment with those that you love and celebrate your engagement with games, food, and drinks.
