During an Indian wedding, engagement ceremonies were not that big a thing in the past but now they have become a major event in the wedding saga. Earlier there used to be just a few members of the family attending the function but now there are hundreds of people attending an engagement. It is not just the number of people that have increased but also the scale of celebration, décor and the ceremony in general.

One such change is the inclusion of an engagement ceremony plate that holds the rings of the bride and groom.

In this design, you need a piece of strong hardboard that can be used as a base and a frame to hold it together. The main idea is to create a pedestal on top of this base where the ring cases shall be kept. For that, you can use another photo frame that is smaller in size.

Create a base using pieces of ply and place the frame on top of it. Fix everything using a strong adhesive. Once you are done with the basic structure, paint it golden. Place the flowers you want around the two bases.

Now comes the background of this plate with the initials of the bride and groom placed in two rings, each with the crowns of the king and queen respectively. You can cut it out of hardboard and then paint it with golden colour as well. This whole package will look incredible when done, making it one of the best plate decoration ideas for engagement.

If you are looking for simpler plate decoration ideas for engagement then you can use a highly reflective plate and then work on it to create an engagement ceremony plate. Place some white or silver beads in a circle at the border of the plate and then stick big rose flowers inside it. Place the beads again to form another concentric circle. Use a decorative ribbon to stick to one end and a few red stones at the centre. You can place the box of rings at the centre and you are done.

Get a wooden board for the base and paint it gold. Create two concentric discs with small stands on top that can be used to place the rings. Create the initials of the bride and groom using hardboard and place it in between the rings. This will give the design some depth. Use natural flowers and ferns for decorating the plate in this design. Paint the whole thing golden and you would have executed one of the most aesthetically pleasing plate decoration ideas for engagement.
