Getting engaged is an incredibly exciting time. You’ll want to shout it from the rooftops! So, congratulations and now it’s time to think of great ways to celebrate the news with your family and friends. Here are some fun and romantic ideas to inspire your engagement celebrations:
Have your first date again
If possible, revisit and recreate where you spent your first date together. If you’re no longer in the same area, try to recreate it in a similar venue. Order the same meal, see the same movie or anything else you first did together. Even if the date was a disaster for some reason, look back and smile about it. You’re still together and it’s all part of your unique story as a couple.
Crack open the champagne
There aren’t too many life events that require champagne, but this is definitely one of them. No engagement announcement is complete with corks flying! Whether it’s an intimate drink with just the two of you or you are with friends and family, open a bottle of your favourite bubbly. Don’t like champagne? Substitute with whatever you fancy – cider or tequila!
Advertise it on your house
If you really want to go all out you could hire a Essex Scaffolding company to put this up outside your house, then get up on the roof and color the tiles red in a heart shape so everyone going past will see you love her.
Plan some pampering
Planning a wedding is busy and often stressful, so schedule in some celebratory pampering time. All eyes will be on you and your ring over the next few weeks, so look and feel your best with a trip to the spa or salon. T A couple’s massage is a nice idea for some alone time, or for girly gossip with your besties – a mani-pedi is a great option.
Take a celebratory holiday
It doesn’t matter whether you jet across the globe or escape a few miles away in a romantic B&B, after the excitement of announcing your upcoming nuptials, why not spoil yourselves with an intimate holiday? Tune out, turn devices off and just enjoy being together in a relaxed environment. Life will soon get busy and stress again, so just soak up the peace and freedom while you can.
Photoshoot for newly-engaged
Gone are the days when wedding photos was all you got. These days you can organise a ‘just engaged’ photoshoot. You can even hire a photographer to appear at the moment of proposal if you’re feeling confident. This is a great way of documenting the whole journey and not just the culmination at the wedding day. You’ll have loads of wonderful memories and can even use the photos on your wedding invitations!
