The 7 Emotional Stages Of Getting Engaged

August 10, 2017

The day you get engaged is like a crazy roller coaster of joy. Over the course of a few hours, you’ll probably experience just about every positive emotion there is to experience.


1. Shock

It happened! You’re engaged! Congratulations! Are you speechless? Maybe you haven’t been able to pick your jaw up off the floor yet. That’s okay! You’re engaged!



2. Excitement

Shock is quickly replaced by overwhelming excitement. You get to spend the rest of your life with your best friend and you probably feel like shouting it from the rooftops! Go ahead because… you’re engaged!


3. Love

Right about now, you’re probably noticing your heart feels like it’s going to burst! All the love you feel for this person you get to marry is welling up inside you like a ball of sunshine.


4. Excitement...Again

Now it’s time to start calling your closest friends and family. Bring on the excitement again!


5. Contentment

You’ve cried, you’ve laughed, you've hugged, you’ve screamed, you’ve jumped up and down until your feet hurt! Now it’s time to sit back and let it all sink in.


6. Excitement…One More Time

Just when you thought you’d finally calmed down, you’re smiling from ear to ear and squealing like a teenager who just got asked to prom by her crush.


7. Sleep

Technically not an emotion but...you’ve been on an emotional roller coaster of wonderfulness, which will understandably leave you a little drained. It’s time to call it a night, get your beauty sleep and keep riding the engagement high in the morning.
