5. Enjoy the day
Today only one thing counts: YOU& HE! So enjoy the day to the fullest. Visit your favorite restaurant or cook your favorite dish together at home.

6. The next day& your engagement ring
It may well happen that the ring is too small or too big for you. This can be fixed by the jeweler, the only disadvantage is that you unfortunately have to give your ring again for it. The best thing is to go to the jeweler together, then he can take off your size. Because also from ring to ring the sizes are different because of the ring design and we want that the ring fits perfectly!
