Getting engaged is such a fun and exciting time, but there are several mistakes that most couples make right away. And since we don’t want you to make them too, we’ve compiled a list of 10 things that you should never do after saying “I do.” Posting that you’re “engaged” on Facebook before you tell your bff’s (and sister!), and singing your life away to a venue without a budget or guest list should be avoided at all costs. And no matter how bad you get the urge, don’t invite every single person and their second cousins to your wedding when you see them in town–unless you have an unlimited budget. In order to have the happiest engagement ever, check out our tips in the slideshow above.
