You'll Constantly Be Flashing The Ring

Once you have that ring on your finger, you'll surely be flashing your left hand as much as possible--in person and on social media!


You'll Start Getting Regular Manicures

There's no doubt that you'll want your nails to look their best when you're showing off that engagement ring to family and friends. So expect to be scheduling appointments at the nail salon more often than you did before. 


You'll Start Throwing Around The Word "Fiancé"

Once you say yes, your man officially goes from being your boyfriend to your fiancé. You'll have fun introducing him to everyone using his new title!

You'll Need To Have The Money Talk

If you haven't already, you and your fiancé need to sit down and have a serious talk about money. Be honest about your debt, financial goals and worries. Remember, money is the number one issue in relationships so you don't want to sweep anything under the rug.

You'll Need To Discuss The Future

Aside from money, you need to talk to one another about your hopes for the future (if you haven't already). How many kids do you want to have? Where do you want to live? Are you both going to work? These are things you don't want to discuss after the wedding!
