Ramadan Engagements…Why You Should/ Shouldn’t?

Large

Engagements are great way to enjoy the company of friends and family in a very casual and small atmosphere, so is Ramadan the months worth of gatherings and small to large get-togethers where we celebrate the people we love and all sit down together over food and laugh and joke and bond of course. So when considering an engagement, some people might think that having one during Ramadan seems logical and promising if you think about it. Which is why we made a list of the pros and cons of having a Ramadan Engagement.

The Pros;

If you are debating having an engagement during Ramadan, there are a few reasons as to why this would be a good idea. The first one being that the weather for Ramadan this year is perfect. Considering that it’s coming from mid-April to mid-May, you are experiencing a full bloom spring, where the weather is warm and refreshing and although there is some wind it’s no longer actively cold. This is great for outdoor engagements because you get to experience the nice spring, not the early one that makes you confused about the weather and the seasons.

Also, you are capable of utilising the occasions where the entire extended family gets together over food and have them compiled into one big event. It’s also a great option if you want your engagement to come quickly before Eid and Sahel season where people begin to travel and are less flexible with their time.

The Cons;

There are drawbacks to having a Ramadan engagement however, and we can’t forget them because they will cause problems especially logistically. With Ramadan engagements, you have to plan the engagement itself between the hours after Iftar and before Sohour unless you plan on feeding them throughout the engagement itself.

Also planning an engagement while fasting is no easy chore, it’s a long and draining experience that can prove to be too much to handle especially if you are hungry and thirsty. Moreover the flexibility of places is limited as you will be competing with venues that are planning big Fetars and Sohours, but that can easily be arranged.

Our recommendation is to always have the engagement happen after Ramadan and Eid, that way you don’t have to share the spotlight with other events, but have the entire attention on you. Although that doesn’t mean you can’t announce your engagement in a gathering Iftar or Sohour and postpone the party till after Ramadan is over!
