How to Celebrate Your Postponed Engagement Day

If you’ve had to postpone your engagement, you’re not the only one. Tens of thousands of couples around the world have had to backdate or cancel their nuptials and celebrations due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The British Government has announced that no one should be making plans for the summer, which has made it even harder for couples to find alternative dates.

You’ve put your blood, sweat and tears into the planning of your special event, but, as the ‘Big day” approaches, you’re probably wondering what to do instead. We heard you, and we’ve got some ideas for you.

Have a romantic dinner

When was the last time you and your loved one have had a chance to enjoy quality time together? Organising your engagement day got in the way of it? Well, we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate your relationship than having a good old-fashioned romantic dinner.

There are plenty of options to make it memorable. Play your all-time favourite songs, enjoy the same food you had on your first date, reminisce about how you met and don’t forget to seal it off with a toast! Set the ambience right by lighting some candles, and be sure to dress up and look your best; there’s no reason to sit around in your pj’s just because you’re at home.

Re-watch a favourite movie

Ever heard of the expression “dinner and a movie”? You can take your candle-lit dinner to the next level by streaming an iconic movie you’ve both enjoyed together. Make some cocktails, popcorn and cuddle up with your partner to recreate your most memorable movie date.
