When someone gets engaged it’s not only a special time for the couple, but also for all of the friends and family that get to share in this momentous occasion. In many cases, friends and family will take full, or at least majority, responsibility for planning all things wedding related and many individuals, from both sides of the new family, will often partake in the wedding itself. However, for many people, these grand gestures of common actions simply aren’t enough to convey their, sometimes overwhelming, happiness for the couple that has decided to spend their lives together. For these people, the engagement party is a time in which they can show their love for the couple and show a little bit of what they feel about the situation.
Unfortunately, finding the right way to express yourself in this time can often be confusing. There are many ways in which you could show your love for the couple and you could even plan and pay for the entire engagement party, but to show them a little bit of how proud you are it will take a bit more skill in gift giving than just money or monetary favors.
Generally when you’re looking for perfect gift many things will come to mind. You may remember how the met or the stories from their first date, you may have even been there. The important thing at this time is to keep it simple. A lot of the time, simple gifts can be more heartfelt that extravagant ones and will often find a place in the hearts and homes of those who receive them. A great gift is a simple dinner wine or a placard commemorating their decision. Whatever you choose make it from the heart and they will always cherish it. If you decide simple isn’t good enough, a getaway before or after the wedding is a great gesture.
