Simple Tips for Newly Engaged Couples
Blog Post By: Amy Saunders, Event Coordinator

Newly engaged couples often face many questions from family and friends. Most of the questions you will be asked are going to get repetitive, so it's best to prepare yourself!

“How did he propose?” 

Family and friends are going to want to hear your story. Take time to reminisce about that special moment and prepare your response.

“When’s the Big Day?” 

This question can sometimes put you in an awkward position because it is usually followed by, “Am I invited?” If you haven’t had time to think about your guest list, a simple response such as, “We are still considering dates” or “We are going to keep it relatively small” are noncommittal responses and may help you avoid hurting anyone’s feelings.
