When I first got engaged I never imaged that I would need any of the items I’m about to share with you. However, as the days went on – I soon came to realize that I couldn’t live without them!
Lucky for you, I’m breaking it down, right here – right now.
1 – Erin Condren Wedding Planner
This is my #1 recommendation for all engaged ladies who love to plan like I do! The Erin Condren Wedding Planner is a life saver. Stocked with to do list’s, tips, stickers and more – this planner is essential to keep track of appointments with vendors, to-do and check lists, and monthly goals. $55-$70

2 -Henri Bendel Ring Box
The Henri Bendel Mini Ring Box is the perfect companion when traveling. Instead of having to wear my ring to bed, either at home, or when i’m sleeping away from home, I can simply use my ring box for easy and safe storage. The full zipper closure ensures everything is protected nicely. Not to mention it’s adorable! $48
3 – A Wifey Shirt
Ok, so maybe owning t-shirts that say ‘Wifey’ aren’t 100% necessary for survival, but they do make for adorable outfits! I’ve been loving my tank from The Paisley Box. Throw it on to workout, do errands, or lounge around. $18
4 – Personalized Stationary
Once you’re engaged you’ll need to send a ton of Thank You’s to family and friends who send you engagement gifts. No matter how big or small the gesture, it needs a Thank You! I have two sets, one I ordered practically the week after we got engaged from Tiny Prints. The other set I got was from Leen Machine, which I adore and try to only use sparingly, starting at: $15
5 – Personalized Jewelry
This may be my favorite one, because it’s the most fun. Monogram and initials, along with special dates like your wedding or anniversary all fit perfect onto dainty pieces of gold and silver to wear on your body all the time. Stella & Dot has so many amazing options to choose from! Price varies
Everything we’ve discussed above could totally be given as a gift as well. My Matron of Honor actually got me the personalized stationary as part of my “congrats you’re engaged” gift basket! Thanks Mel! 😉
