15 Things NOT To Say Right After Getting Engaged

If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all. Sense a proposal on the horizon? Assuming your answer is “yes,” this is one situation where that old adage should be definitely be honored. In the midst of such a thrilling and emotional moment, we can be prone to word vomit we’re bound to regret later. If a detail falls short of your expectations, focus on what actually matters (hello! you get to spend the rest of your life with the person you love most!) and keep those lips zipped (at least for the next decade or two). Here are some foot-in-mouth phrases to avoid:

1. Took ya long enough!

2. Is the stone real?

3. To be honest, I was expecting a different cut/carat size/style.

4. That wasn’t much of a speech!

5. I knew it was going to happen today!

6. I thought you’d come up with something more romantic/creative/intimate/elaborate.

7. Thank goodness because I don’t think I would have stuck with you much longer without a ring!

8. Oh. Well I definitely didn’t think you’d propose here!

9. How much did it cost?

10. Where are all my family and friends? Are they surprising us later?

11. Aw, how sweet. Can we go now because Real Housewives starts in 10 minutes.

12. Did you really not hire a photographer?

13. I actually found the ring in your pants pocket/sock drawer last week…

14. There’s no way you can afford this.

15. This ring makes my fingers look fat.
