Christmas = Love
Love is a huge part of Christmas and it unites families and relatives to create a great experience for everyone. Whether you have a huge family or it is a more intimate affair, spending time with loved ones is what is most important around this time. A proposal can join people together and not only the couple.

However as I mentioned earlier, Christmas is a very popular time for proposals for all the reasons I have just mentioned, so get searching for the perfect ring early in order to make your proposal as amazing as it can be. It may seem daunting having to find an engagement ring on top of gifts for the rest of the family, however when you ask the big question on Christmas morning it will be more than worth it.

A lot of thought should go into the ring, especially if you don’t have any idea what her ideal engagement ring looks like. You may be lucky enough to have seen a picture or have a great idea of what kind of jewellery she is into, however choosing a ring she loves will mean a lot to her and show how well you really know her. Antique engagement rings are extremely popular with brides to be for many reasons, and there is an antique ring suitable for anyone.

With their beautiful and intricate designs along with the romantic history behind the ring, antique engagement rings are the perfect choice and it will be the perfect surprise for you partner on Christmas morning. There are many decades to choose from which makes it more than possible for you to find the perfect ring and there are many places where you can invest in an antique ring, so get searching today to make this Christmas one to remember for a lifetime.
Whilst some undoubtedly love the thought of a winter wedding, there’s no denying the fact that the majority would much prefer to get hitched in the summer months. What that in mind, given that proposals are on the rise in the run up to Christmas all the way through to Valentines Day, it’s a busy time of year for those planning a wedding and, as such, we thought we’d take a look at just a couple of ways to add that extra special touch to your reception; arguably, for many, the most enjoyable part of the big day.
- Light Up Your Big Day With Love Letters
If it’s good enough for celebrities, it’s good enough for anyone and the current trend amongst wedding planners is giant light up lettering! Whether you spell out the bride and groom’s initials, hire a heart or want to simply showcase your ‘love,’ we’re seeing more and more couples hiring light up lettering and we can definitely see why. We spoke with Light It Up UK who offer light up wedding lettering in London and Kent who stated, “light up letters are an affordable yet fun and unique way to do something a little different yet entirely personal. Whether you hire letters, symbols or write words, there’s so many perfect combinations which work wonders and impress guests no end.”
If you’re after that extra special touch, light up letters could well be just that!
- Let Your Guests Spend A Penny In Luxury
No one likes grotty portable toilets and the reality for many outdoor weddings is that it’s simply something that has to be accepted. Luckily, it doesn’t have to be that way and you’ll find a number of companies across the UK who specialise in offering luxury toilets to hire. These are a million miles away from that which you’d see at a music festival or local fair and companies such as Event Washrooms who proudly offer luxury toilets for hire in Kent, recognise that many no longer want to give their guests the bare minimum. Fred of the company outlined to us, “Our clients want to give their guests something special and we can guarantee that luxury loos become a real talking point at any wedding! Everyone expects to need to spend a penny in something akin to that seen at a music festival and when they see something so regal and luxurious it’s a real (nice) surprise!”
- Bring In An External Party Planner
Let’s face it, planning a wedding takes time and planning a reception takes even longer! Why not save yourself the hassle of finding a variety of different suppliers and pondering over every last little detail when you could hire the services of a professional party planner? It’s not uncommon to be able to find planners who work not only with the likes of you and me but also with the stars and we managed to track down one such company, London based party planners, Twizzle. The companies main man, Peter, stated to us, “From a cocktail party through to an evening full of the best entertainment you could wish for, every couple have their own ideas and it’s the job of a party planner to sep in and make those dreams come true.”
The reception, for many, is the highlight of the day and the culmination of month’s of excitement so take the time to make the event something extra special and go all-out to put in those little touches which everyone will be talking about for years to come! Stunning luxury toilets? GO FOR IT!
