The perfect engagement is one that is very personal and features the favorite things of your fiancée and the memories that you have shared together. If you are planning the engagement as a surprise, you could arrange for all your friends and family to gather at the restaurant where you had your first date. Get them to decorate it in her colors with a special bowl of her favorite flowers on your table. As you arrive (casually) with your fiancée, you could arrange for her favorite song to be playing, and then when she sees everyone there, you can drop down on your knees, kiss her hand and ask her to marry you!
Your wedding ceremony should be something that represents your personalities – both individually and as a couple. Celebrating who you are will undoubtedly make the ceremony memorable. Consider your backgrounds, family traditions, favorite pop culture references, and religious affiliations. All of these can be sources of inspiration for turning up the volume on your wedding theme. Consider having doves released after the ceremony or a specialty groom’s cake decorated with your favorite Sci-Fi characters. Some couples choose dramatic themes, dressing up in Renaissance era clothing or even steam punk attire. Location can also be the memorable factor, so consider locations where you might like to be married.
