There’s really no rules here and you can’t cover it all but here’s some areas you might consider mentioning…
The Meet Cute – where/when/how did it all begin?
‘We met when we were young, drunk and obsessed with Vampire Weekend. Now, we’re older, drink avocado smoothies and like Radio 4.’
Personality Traits – one introvert + one show pony = great dinner party hosts.
‘Tom’s a professional gym bunny, selfie-hunter who’s never without a cocktail. Austin is an intellectual, history lover who genuinely loves discussing WW1. Together, they are a match made in Hoxten’.
The Proposal – really only useful if it went slightly wrong!
‘You’re invited to this wedding because Jaya surprised Zane by proposing. She was crying before the starters came out and didn’t actually pop the question till after the pudding, so it made for an interesting night.
The waiting staff were reassured table 16 were in fact a young couple in love, rather than a gaslighting boyfriend passive aggressively abusing his girlfriend over tapas.’
Future Plans – what’s the next stage for you two? Feel free to keep it irreverent.
‘Grace dreams of growing old together with Anthony, listening to classical music, meditating in the garden and cooking big portions of vegan stew together.
Anthony hopes Grace remains exactly the way she is; generally drunk, really quite loud and the perfect partner in crime to keep him company on the old folks home.’
First Date – romcom-worthy or the kind of stuff that ends up as a Bored Panda meme?
‘Like any traditional love story, he met her online and quickly started wooing her down The Bedford Arms. Like Cinderella, she almost lost a shoe on the sticky carpet, but he saved the day by making her laugh with his impressive lawnmower dance moves. Yes, she had had a cocktail or two.’
