1. Plan festive photos: Remember the fantastic photographer who snapped your oh-so-romantic engagement photos? Photographers often offer fun holiday-themed packages for couples and families. Coordinate some cute, cozy outfits and schedule a shoot for your first card as an engaged couple! Don't forget to include shots that fabulously showcase your new forever captivating ring!
2. Create a new tradition: Talk with your fiancée and find a fun seasonal activity, movie or decorative item you both love, and allow it to become your own special tradition! The options are endless — from decorating sweet cookies or a gingerbread house together, to a nostalgic Christmas tree theme, to a cozy weekend away to shop for gifts together. Get creative with your honey and start building the heartwarming traditions of your own future family!
3. Welcome to the family! Whether your family has a traditional Seder, a day of charity giving, or a Christmas Eve by candlelight, find creative ways to make sure your beloved feels included. Bring your sweetie into the fold by making sure they have a personalized place setting, a gift to unwrap or simply taking time to introduce your special someone to all the members of your group — every detail makes a difference!
No matter how you spend your holidays, carve some time out of the busy season for yourselves! Whether it's sitting fireside with hot cocoa, strolling through a Christmas village or having a quiet dinner by candlelight, this is truly a magical season for you and your families to remember forever!
