2020 has definitely turned any plans for the year upside down. Despite all the craziness, for the lucky people it has given us more time at home with the people we love.
The unpredictability of this year has resulted in some of the most beautiful, creative proposals ever!
From mountain tops Zoom proposals to courtroom elopements, stories of the love and determination people are currently showing are taking the internet by storm.
More than just proposals have changed with 2020 though, with wedding plans delayed or completely changed. While planning that big family dream wedding might still be a little bit out of reach, this year gives you a unique opportunity to slow down and really enjoy this special time!
Getting engaged is one of the most exciting times in your life, and now more than ever before you can enjoy it! While engagement parties might not be happening just yet, there are still so many fun things you can do during this time:
Custom design the engagement ring
Handcrafting a custom make takes more time and planning than buying one off the shelf- if your plans to propose have been put on hold, or choosing the ring is something you are doing together, why not get something custom made? Getting exactly what you want, and the chance to truly personalise it is priceless.
Get a custom made wedding band
You’ve got the engagement ring, but what about wedding bands? This bonus time provides the best chance to get His and Hers custom made wedding bands, something that matches the engagement ring perfectly, or even something with coloured gems!
Why not take this time to get a (socially distant) photoshoot down? The perfect way to remember this special moment in time and announce to the world that you are engaged! Photos from this time will last your whole life together, and really focus on your love, and not the topsy turvy world we are currently in.
Getting engaged in 2020 is unlike anything we have ever seen before, but totally worth the crazy!
