The 14 Things Nobody Tells You About Getting Engaged.

Congratulations! You got engaged! But did you know that it’s not as simple as that? You’re getting married soon – didn’t think about that, did you, and how adult you will become?

Married – say the word slowly to yourself. It’s not just for old farts anymore.

So get yourself acquainted with the things no one tells you, but you’ll soon find out for yourself…
The 14 Things Nobody Tells You About Getting Engaged.

1. It feels amazing

Yay! Someone actually wants to spend the rest of their life with you!

And you feel the same way! So many exclamation marks!

2. It feels scary

Uh, does this mean you’re going to have to become an adult now? No thanks.

3. It feels surreal. Ten minutes ago, you were wondering which microwave meal to make tonight.

Now, you’ve got a ring on one hand, and a glass of champagne in the other.

How did this happen? Which of your mates was in on it?

4. It feels unexpected. Why oh why did you wear this grubby old T-shirt and jeans today?

If only you’d known, you would have got a manicure first, and at least put on a dress!

5. You don’t know who to call first

If you call your mum first, your dad will get offended.
If you call your sister first, what about your brother?

And that’s not even starting on which friend to call first above all others.

6. You opt for Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Good old social media, pumping your good news out there so you don’t have to.

You know this will incite the inevitable ‘What? You guys have barely been together a year!’ or ‘Took your time lol’ mean posts from jealous haters, but oh well.

7. You turn off your phone

Too many calls, your cheeks are hurting and there’s only so many times you can say ‘Thank you so much!’

You’ll check your Facebook notifications later, however – you can never get enough of those (at least the nice ones).

8. Everyone wants to know when the wedding is Erm, you just got engaged half an hour ago.

You didn’t know that you were getting married this morning when you put on the aforementioned grubby old T-shirt, so how on earth would you know when or where your wedding is?

9. Wedding?! Oh my god. WEDDING.

That means you’re getting married and planning a wedding, all words that seemed to apply to people far older and more mature than yourself.

10. You think about strangely irrelevant things during the happiest time of your life

Like insuring the ring now sitting on your finger.

Come to think of it, how did he even know which size to get? And how did he know you would love this shape?

And how quickly do you need to pick bridesmaids and a maid of honour before people start getting offended?

11. The word fiancé makes you laugh

Nah, you’re never going to use that word.

Boyfriend will do just fine, even when you’re actually married.

12. Within a week of being engaged, you have put on two stone

Firstly, wedding diets aren’t that fun, and secondly, everyone keeps wanting to celebrate with cake and wine, and who are you to say no to them?

13. ‘How did he propose?’ becomes the most annoying question ever

Don’t get me wrong, your proposal story is great – but you both shout ‘Shotgun not me!’ whenever someone asks you to tell the story for the trillionth time. It gets repetitive.

14. Pinterest becomes your new best friend

Within two weeks, you’ve decided Lauren Conrad is your role model, and there are 57 types of wedding dress you’ve decided you MUST have.

You’ve become a Bridezilla, and you love it.
