1.) Call your parents

And your siblings and BFFs too! The last place they should have to hear about your new status is on social media so give them a ring personally and tell them the happy news. Chances are, mom and dad or guardian already know what's up and have been waiting by the phone patiently for your call.

2.) Post a ring selfie

A picture is worth a thousand words, as they say! Now that you've got the important phone calls out of the way (because in the case of your parents, a picture alone won't suffice), it's time to announce to the world that, you said a big fat YES! The best way to do so, obviously, is by showing off that rock, brides.

3.) Make sure your nails are on fleek from then on

Your hands will be in the spotlight for the next couple of weeks, which means your manicure best be on fleek. Otherwise, friends will be focusing more on your chipped nail polish than your gorgeous engagement ring. Not so cool.

4.) Update your relationship status on social media

It's not official until it's on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram duh! Some brides will be dying to do this right away, whereas others may prefer to wait a bit. There's no right or wrong answer here. But, expect to receive a ton of love (okay, likes) once you do formally make the change to engaged.

5.) Have Sex

It is your first time as an engaged couple so we say, like Nike, just do it! End the night with a steamy sex session to seal the deal and set the tone for forever. Well, let's say sex will be great as your honey moon approaches!
