Who Are the Engagement Experts?
So who is behind Engagement Experts you wonder? We are two girls (and a guy, but
we don't count him), one of us is happily married with two amazing kids and the
other is engaged and soon to be married.
Update: Yay! The deed is done. She got hitched !!!
We saw how much our guy friends (and yes, even the girls) were struggling with the
whole engagement process and how little information there was out there
to help guide the way.
Most of our friends couldn't tell a carat from a karat, or what on earth a bezel
setting was, or how to figure out the best way to propose. And forget about
writing out a formal engagement announcement or party invitation.
So we felt it was high time someone put all of the info together in one place and
explained it simply and easily.
That's why we created this website—to share what we and our
friends have learned as we went
through the process ... and to help that guy we don't count as part of the expert
team figure things out, so that maybe one day he'll venture into the world
of blissful engagement.
There's so much information online and everywhere about the next phase—the
wedding—but nowhere near enough about that big first step, the thing that
leads to the wedding—the proposal, the ring, and ensuing engagement.
Ever heard of Fiancé Magazine? Didn't think so!
If it did exist it would cover things like, engagement etiquette, protocol,
parties, party invitations, toasts, speeches, announcements, diamonds and
diamond rings, and everything there is to think about for that all important
marriage proposal. Wouldn't it be great to have a guide that detailed every
Bottom line is that popping the question is a big decision and we wanted to help
everyone out there with whatever questions they had on wedding engagements so that they could focus on
the more important things like being together and taking the time to plan out the
rest of their lives.
So think about our site, Engagement Experts, as an online version of Fiancé Magazine—the
ultimate step-by-step guide for getting engaged. And,
even though we promise to be the most comprehensive and informative site around,
when in doubt just remember our single biggest piece of advice:
