Keep in mind that depending on the type of wire, you may get some initial stretch as well. Just tighten it evenly as LooseDiamond suggested making sure that the mast is straight. Typically, you can set the shrouds and then leave them in place when you unstep the mast. The forestay is removed from the bow but it's adjustment doesn't need to be changed. Again, we are making guesses as we don't know what your setup looks like. Shoot some pics.
Set it up and go sailing.
