When it comes to proposals, there can be a lot of reactions in a short amount of time. Check out these six stages of being proposed to and see if you can relate!
Complete shock. You had no idea that casual stroll through the park or dinner at your favorite restaurant was going to end with a proposal.
You are trying your very best to keep it together. Your S.O. is on one knee and you know the waterworks are coming.
Excitement takes over and you can’t keep your answer in any longer! You want everyone to know you #justsaidyes!
You put the ring on and are so thankful your best friend convinced you to get that last minute manicure. Because, let’s be honest your engagement ring looks amazing on your freshly polished finger!
You want to immediately share the moment on social media, but it takes a few tries to get that selfie right…

We all know that the best part of any awards show actually happens before the show even stars, the red carpet! Offering up expert critique on the ensembles the hottest stars are donning is arguably the most fun part about awards season. As a bride-to-be, this is also a great place to look for bridal fashion inspo since the aisle is basically your own red carpet. Lucky for the recently engaged, there was no shortage of wedding day looks at this year’s Golden Globes.

Laverne Cox proved that a clean and figure-hugging white dress can go a very long way. Mimic her simple style and show off your curves!
2. Malin Akerman in Reem Acra

If you’re on the hunt for something bridal with a modern twist, take a page from actress Malin Akerman and opt for peplum detailing!
3. Lily James in Marchesa

The Cinderella starlet gave off an ethereal vibe on the Globes red carpet, a perfect style for the romantic and whimsical bride.
4. Gina Rodriguez in Zac Posen

If you’re looking to evoke the same old Hollywood glam as Gina Rodriguez did, look no further than this Zac Posen number, available for under $2k at David’s Bridal. (Yes, you read that right).
5. Miss Golden Globe Corinne Foxx in Paolo Sebastian
Gown by Monique Lhuillier; Photo by Dan Lecca
Calling all fashion-forward brides! Corinne Fox’s gown complete with floral embroidery and illusion sleeves is a great way to push the boundaries of bridal fashion.
6. Jenna Dewan Tatum in Zuhair Murad

Jenna Dewan Tatum’s classic A-line silhouette should be a source of inspiration for brides everywhere.
7. Taraji P. Henson in Stella McCartney
Gown by Sarah Janks; Photo by Dan Lecca
Before she won best actress for her role in Empire, she won best understated bridal look in our hearts. If you’re in search of something simple, the hunt is over.
8. Eva Longoria in George Hobeika
Gown by Pronovias; Photo by Dan Lecca
Chic, simple, and sophisticated. Three words to describe Eva Longoria last night, and you on your wedding day if you opt for the short-sleeve silk crepe style above.
