Getting engaged is a big moment in most people’s lives and so it’s only natural that you may want to celebrate such a momentous occasion. But how? There are many, many different ways you can celebrate your engagement, and here are just a few of them…
Go on holiday
The major celebration holiday normally comes after the wedding, but there’s absolutely nothing to say you can’t celebrate your engagement by going on holiday too. You’ll both no doubt be drunk in love so it’ll be a little like a honeymoon dress rehearsal, and who needs more of an excuse to have a holiday? Also, whoever actually did the proposing may well have found the preceding days or weeks a little stressful so might need a break!
Have engagement photos
It’s become a bit of trend to take engagement photos to announce you’re going to get hitched. This is largely thanks to social media where absolutely everything has to be announced on Facebook or it’s not official, but it’s also a great way of telling family and friends, particularly if you live far away from them. Now you can either do the whole thing yourself or you can opt for professional couples photography and let a pro handle it.
Throw a big party
This is probably the most common way to celebrate getting engaged, but it’s also one of the most fun. You can get together with all of your closest family and friends and soak in all the well wishes and congratulations you’ll receive. If you wanted to make it a little more interesting then you could always have a theme so that it’s not just the same as any other party – maybe have a ‘ball and chain’ theme!
Have another first date
You no doubt remember your first date with your spouse-to-be, whether it be good or bad (can’t have been that bad), so you could revisit that first date and reminisce now that you’re engaged to be married. It may have just been a trip to the cinema or a meal in a particular restaurant, but whatever it was, it would be a good way to celebrate the commitment you’ve made to each other.
Break open the bubbly
If you’re celebrating then you don’t really have any reason not to crack open a nice bottle of
champagne. Even if it’s just the two of you at home, have a nice meal and a glass of champagne is a
great, intimate way of celebrating.
Plan the wedding!
If one or both of you is particularly keen, then the best kind of celebration might just be to start
planning the wedding. There is a lot to organise, so it’s not wise to leave it too long anyway, and one of you may well already have a lot of it planned out in your head and can’t wait to get started.
