Should You Take a Post-Proposal Getaway?
If you're active on social media, you've seen the posts before: A couple who just got engaged is celebrating their newly-minted relationship status on a tropical vacation. Post-proposal getaways have been growing in popularity for years, which is why you might be considering one. On the one hand, there's no better way to celebrate this milestone than with a romantic vacation for just the two of you. On the other hand, however, you might want to celebrate this important event with family and friends. Here, a few reasons why you might want to plan that getaway.
Take a Break
A post-proposal getaway will afford you time to relax and soak up the moment before you dive headfirst into wedding planning. And a getaway doesn't have to be a big planned vacation; you could book a hotel in the city for a night or two or find a cabin in the mountains to spend some a weekend alone together before sharing the news with everyone you love.
An engagement is meant to be enjoyed with friends and family members, but you should take the time to enjoy it privately before spreading the word. For couples with large families or big friend groups, sharing the news might mean that you're quickly surrounded by dozens of loved ones. If you want to really celebrate together, a quick trip could be the way to go.
It Might Be Your Last Pre-Wedding Vacation
Depending on how long you're planning to be engaged for, this could be your last vacation as an unmarried couple. After years of being boyfriend and girlfriend, your engagement will go by quickly. Enjoy a trip as fiancé and fiancée before you become husband and wife.
