Making an engagement truly memorable will win you points for a lifetime each time she retells your engagement story. The following tips will help your engagement stick out:
Take it personally
You’re proposing to the woman or man of your dreams, the one you’ve chosen to spend the rest of your life with, the person uniquely matched to you. So, make the proposal just as personalized and special as that person. You might have chosen the perfect ring, but presentation is equally important.
Choose something that will not only stun your betrothed, but something he or she can keep for years. Ditch the typical velvet box and go for a personalized, engraved keepsake box from Things Remembered. Dozens of box options allow you to perfectly match the style of your spouse-to-be, from classic and elegant to contemporary chic.
Then take it one step further and engrave something meaningful to commemorate this day. Your names, the date you were engaged or a personal love saying (that only the two of you understand) are ideal inscriptions.
Make it a party
As all partygoers know, not all parties are created equal. A personal engagement party is something you and your families will remember forever. Whether you choose a private, intimate locale to pop the question or a bustling public setting, invite family and friends to celebrate together.
A great party needn’t require great expense. A home gathering featuring champagne, a cheese plate and homemade music playlist can make for one of the most memorable occasions of your life. Make your future spouse the center of attention, and you’ll be set to make the event unforgettable.
Capture the moment
Nearly all couples hire photographers and videographers to capture the memories of their wedding day. But isn’t the engagement just as momentous? As your heart begins to race when your knee bends to the ground, the last thing on your mind will be your camera. But looking back at the moment will be a treasured experience for years to come.
If you plan on hiring a professional photographer, call at least a few weeks in advance. You’ll probably need the photographer for only an hour or so. If you’re already on a shoestring budget, see if a photography enthusiast friend will take photos for you.
