04 Dec Holiday Proposals
The holidays are a wonderful time for family and loved ones to get together and celebrate countless blessings. It can also be a great time for couples who are ready to tie the knot to pop the question and become engaged! Finding the best time to propose can be nerve-wracking – so being as prepared as possible for the moment could make all the difference. Here are a few tips to make your holiday proposal go down as smoothly as apple cider!
- Hello, Hints!
Very often, if you’re very seriously dating a woman and she’s ready to settle down, she will start dropping hints. Pay attention. It’s rarely rocket science as to what she might want if you watch for the signs. Has she ever mentioned a favorite cut? Does she gravitate to a particular metal over another? Take a look at her current jewelry collection. Talk to her parents and close friends! Chances are, she’s told them what she wants and likes. If you’re prepared to marry this woman, talking to her closest friends about it shouldn’t be too hard.
- Rock the Ring
The next step would be for you to decide whether you’re going to buy from a collection or design your own ring. There are less traditional ways to go about it, and if you want to ring shop together, that’s also a great idea! A great way to go about that would be to propose with the indented wedding band, then you can come back to pick out the engagement ring with your bride to be. Every couple is different, but if you’re going traditional, talking to a jeweler and doing your homework will help you narrow down the overwhelming number of choices.
- Present the Perfect Proposal
Now, when it comes to the proposal itself, this is going to be a story that you will be telling everyone for years to come. And no matter how perfectly you plan, be prepared for things to go awry. But as long as your intentions are pure, and you probably know she’s going to say yes, take it all in stride, but have a contingency plan. If she doesn’t like public displays, take her aside. If the weather turns, have an indoor strategy. But most importantly, try to be present. Give yourselves a minute to really savor the moment. Once she says yes, try to have an idea in mind as to how you can relish and celebrate. Maybe have some champagne ready, or if her family knew it was coming, invite them in! This is such a beautiful occasion to share with loved ones and you’ve picked a great time to ensure everyone can be near to enjoy.
