Getting Engaged Over the Holidays

Holiday Proposal Horizontal

With the holiday season upon us, we are just entering into what we, in the wedding planning industry, call “engagement season”.  Between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day, there is always a high influx in engagements and surprise proposals.  Some sources say, as many as 40% of yearly proposals happen in these months.  The reason being is this is the time when most families are together.  It makes for a good opportunity for the person who is popping the question to ask for the blessing or approval of their significant other’s family.  What better way to enter into the next stage of your relationship than to do it in front of your closest family and friends.  As wedding planners, we LOVE hearing holiday proposal stories from our couples.

Engagement Photos!

How fun are getting engagement photos!?  Well, while most of you may think that engagement photos are really fun and exciting, others might totally disagree.  The truth of the story is, for me, it was extremely stressful, even as a wedding planner.  Thinking about where to take the pictures, what to wear, how to do my hair, if I need to get my makeup done, how clean my house was, etc., etc., etc..  it became a complete mind game.  That was my thought process prior to the start of the day and to be honest, I really wasn’t looking forward to them at all.  Afterwards however, when it was all said and done, it was a completely different story.  See, the pictures represent me and my fiancé, Chris.  They represent the love we share with each other and how simple and easy it is to be together.  Chris and I had a great time and we really enjoyed the company of Mike as well.  We laughed, we joked, we probably got mad at each other (I saw it on his face in one picture) but we were completely us and that is exactly what I wanted this whole day to be about.  Although my initial feelings were a bit all over the place, at the end of the day, the pictures came out amazing and I couldn’t be happier.  If there is one tip that I could offer anyone about to take their pictures, it would be this: just be you.  Be as normal, as silly, as serious or as goofy as you are together when no one is watching.  That, in itself, will make the experience unforgettable.
