Tip of the Day: Throwing an engagement party? It doesn't have to be pricey—a new trend is get-togethers that are centered around a fun activity like bowling, laser tag, or even mini golf. If you plan on hosting a formal affair at a later point in time, it's still a good idea to organize a casual event for close friends and family members immediately following your engagement. That way, everyone can congratulate you as a group, so you won't have to schedule individual visits with well-wishers. Plus, it gives you all the chance to celebrate while that giddy feeling is still new and exciting.

Plus, avoid these five "don'ts" after getting engaged.
