Your proposal story will be one that you tell over and over, so having a magical tale to deliver will make you and your spouse smile for years. Holiday proposals lend an incredible feeling of cheer and celebration to the already festive season. Our knowledgeable team at Michael Agnello Jewelers has put together a guide to creating a wonderful memory to start the rest of your lives together.
It’s All in the Timing
From the middle of November until New Year’s Day, people's calendars are usually teeming with invites for family dinners, holiday parties, and fun events for the season. As many people are just starting to venture back into the social realm, a holiday proposal might be the right way to celebrate getting to gather together again! You know your partner best, so be sure you propose during a moment that they will enjoy. Maybe a public display at a party will make their day or perhaps they will prefer an intimate proposal to then share the details with friends and family later.
Joy to Your World
The holiday season presents so many different festive opportunities for a beautiful proposal. You could hide the ring box at the bottom of their stocking to open last on Christmas morning. If you are picking out a Christmas tree, then you could find the right tree to get down on one knee in front of. Take a trip to see festive light displays and have a custom light show set up asking, “Will you marry me?” Going the extra mile will make your proposal even more special and your other half will appreciate the time you took to set everything up.
Reminisce on Where Your Love Began
A classic proposal favorite is recreating your first date to then pop the big question. They’ll be so surprised to realize that you’ve recreated the moment when your story together began. If the place you had your first date is not in business anymore, then going to the business that is there will be an unexpected moment when you explain why you’re there in the first place. A sentimental nod to how your relationship started to then take the next step will make a great memory.
Lights, Camera, Proposal!
Cozy moments with the family watching sweet Christmas movies sets a lovely mood to propose the rest of your life together. Find a romantic holiday movie with a proposal scene that you could then reprise at the same time as the character on screen. If your community has a Christmas movie in the park event, this would be a beautiful time to have a picnic, cuddle close and pledge your hearts to each other.
Pick A Ring They’ll Cherish Forever
Shopping for the ring is important because you may want it to be a surprise but you also want them to absolutely love the piece that you buy. If you plan on surprising them and are not sure of their ring size, take a look at their jewelry and use one of their existing rings as the example for the jeweler. There is always resizing if they do not have a ring that fits properly or you are not able to figure out the size.
With the multitude of different styles of engagement rings, draw inspiration from their style. A beautiful solitaire on a white gold band may be the ring of their dreams. Or they may enjoy a bold, diamond covered band with intricate details and a halo around the center stone.
