The only thing more exciting than making crafty homemade Christmas cards is throwing an engagement announcement into the mix when people least expect it. In the spirit of Christmas, love and new beginnings, we bring you 10 festively-themed engagement announcement ideas for the couple that aren’t afraid of combining occasions.
Here are some Christmas engagement announcement ideas for social media, or even your Christmas cards!
Strike a peekaboo pose through the middle of a wreath, or lasso your lover around the waist and have the giant holly-clad circle bind the two of you together in a full-frontal kiss.
Get handy with candy (canes)
Join together two candy canes to make a single love heart with you and your partner each holding a half.
Get turned on
Wrap you and your fiance in a string of Christmas lights and get turned on – by electricity – for the photo shoot with this symbolic gesture of unity and togetherness.
Planning a beach wedding? Don some Santa hats, hit the sand and give guests a teaser of what’s to come! It’s easy, cheap and makes great Aussie Christmas engagement announcements for sun-kissed beach lovers and outdoorsy types.
Pose with presents
Chances are you’ve already got some presents wrapped and ready to go, so save yourself the trouble of preparing props and use the real deal to snuggle up to your fiance.
Have a bauble bath
We can’t find a photo for this, (which is possibly a good thing,) but filling an entire bath tub with Christmas ornaments and having a bauble bath is a cheeky way to share your exciting news.
You don’t even have to get your gear off to make a statement. It’s cheeky, and potentially never been attempted in the history of Christmas-inspired engagement announcement. We LOVE the idea, so who wants to go first?
Well, this is cliched, but undeniably cute so, as an engagement announcement, a little corny isn’t a bad thing! Kiss, kiss! .
Ring on a string
Recreate the big question-popping moment for recipients by hanging the ring from a Christmas tree and have the bride blindfolded before it to make friends and family feel as though they are right there with you sharing your special moment.Image: Q Avenue Photo
Christmas in the city
Make the most of your city’s elaborate Christmas displays and head down to town late at night when nobody’s around to snap a quiet pic of you and your partner in amongst the Christmas trees or gliding past the elaborate light shows.
Awkward family photo style
You’ve got your entire wedding day to play dress ups with tulle and tiaras, so slip into something a little more comfy for your engagement announcement: an ugly Christmas jumper in a proportionately awkward partner pose. Animal props and cheesy grins optional.
Have you received a Christmas inspired engagement announcement, or had the pleasure of sending the cards revealing your own special news? We want to hear how you combined the two occasions to create a one-part festive, one-part romance greeting card to send to family and friends.
