Does This Ring Make Me Look Engaged?
September 18, 2019
Getting engaged is one of the happiest days in a couple’s relationship – besides their wedding day. Here are some helpful tips to make it a memorable day.
Hire a Photographer
Hiring a photographer is a MUST! Photographers will go out of their way to make sure their presence is not obvious. They will sit on a bench and pretend they are photographing birds until you pop that important question. When you get down on one knee and ask your partner to marry you, the look on their face is priceless. The photographer can capture that special moment that you’ll be able to treasure for eternity.
Planning the Proposal
When planning how you are going to propose, the first thing you need to think of is how comfortable you and your partner are while under the spotlight. Flash mobs are fun but they are definitely more for people who don’t mind having the spotlight on them. A huge and over-the-top proposal is not for everyone. Most people prefer intimacy. A walk in the park or on the beach provides a beautiful but simple backdrop that is more than enough. It takes away the pressure of something not going as planned.
Buying the Ring
Knowing your partner’s style will help when selecting a ring. Seek advice from your partner’s trusted friend, siblings or mother. They know them the best and will be able to help guide you in the right direction. Use the opportunity to spend some quality time with your future in-laws. They will be excited to help and it will create a bonding experience and a memory that you will all cherish forever.
Pick a Memorable Spot
Choose a location that is meaningful to your relationship. Whether it’s the place that you met, where you went for your first date, or where you first said “I love you,” the spot already has a lot of meaning – you’ll just be making it even more special. Bring your relationship full circle, and reminisce about when your relationship first started.
Set the Mood
Take the time and set the mood right. Have champagne, flowers or a violinist there to give it a romantic feel. Using your sense of sound, smell and taste will have a lasting impression that will unlock these memories for a lifetime.
Include Family and Friends
Your friends and family will be ecstatic to be a part of this special day. To add to the excitement, they can watch from a distance while you ask your partner to marry you. They’ll be right there to celebrate with you. Another way to incorporate your friends and family is to have an engagement celebration set up afterward and invite them to be a part of it. It’s a way to celebrate the love you have built as a couple and share it with the ones closest to you.
When the day arrives, try not to get nervous. Just enjoy the time and take in the moment. You will want to talk about this day for the rest of your lives.
