Getting Married? Need Engagement Advice? Listen up.
Last post, we gave you some proposal ideas for Christmas. Here are some ornaments to consider for the tree this year if she has already said yes.
Here’s a gift for your bride or husband-to-be to commemorate that moment when the engagement ring came out and the question was popped! You can hang it on your tree every year and remember those romantic exciting months when you were engaged to be married. Consider making it the first ornament in a tradition for your new family unit: add a new ornament to your tree each year to celebrate a special memory (first house, new baby, new pet, special visit from relatives, new job, graduation, move to another city, etc).
Here is another classic looking ornament made from glass (also from ornamentshop.com).
Did you buy that engagement ring at Tiffany’s? If so, your fiance can follow his purchase up with this ornament – the iconic blue gift box will always remind you to look down at the big rock on your finger and smile!
Here’s an ornament that you can personalize – available at personalizedfree.com. You can add your names (as pictured, below) and personalize the banner to say “Engaged!” The banner message is up to you – you could even have it say “Will You Marry Me?” and use it to propose!
Another personalized option, this time from santasornamentshop.com.
Another great choice from ornamentshop.com: make sure you get a photo of your proposal and then remember it always in an ornament picture frame!
