First off, congrats! Getting engaged is an exciting and—needless to say—major milestone. But at times it can be an overwhelming one, too. So, now what? The next steps usually consist of telling friends and family, throwing an engagement party, buying a dress, planning the wedding … oh, right, the wedding.
Between picking out flowers and drafting the seating chart, you and your soon-to-be spouse may not be thinking about all the important details in between. And with the uncertainty created by the COVID-19 pandemic, there are even more considerations when it comes to making your plans. But with AAA, you have help making informed decisions and crossing the less-exciting things off your list while you’re riding high on the journey to the next chapter of your life.
Here are five ways AAA can help when you’re newly engaged:
The average cost of an engagement ring was $5,500 in 2021. That’s a hefty price tag—and for such a significant item, you’ll want to make sure it’s protected. Here’s one way to do this: Add a rider —sometimes referred to as an endorsement—to your existing homeowners or renters insurance policy.
The additional cost for a rider will vary based on the ring’s value, your policy’s deductible and even the crime rate in your neighborhood. But for the added peace of mind, the extra cost is worth it—you and your fiance can continue the engagement celebrations without worry.
Money is a frequent stressor in a relationship. So, if you’re newly engaged and want to start combining your finances with those of your significant other, consider a checking account for wedding expenses. Joint checking accounts help promote communication and trust.
AAA Membership is not required to open a checking account, and AAA also offers savings accounts, CDs, IRAs and more.
After all the stress of planning a wedding, the honeymoon can be a light at the end of the tunnel.
