With the holiday season quickly approaching, there comes holidays, family gatherings and many marriage engagements. After all, the holiday season is the perfect time to pop the question, surrounded by family and friends, to take a leap and make the commitment to spend the rest of your life with the person you love. The holiday season is the best time to reflect, keep the ones you love close and dream for the future and the next year ahead. When it comes to planning the perfect engagement for your significant other this holiday season, it is important to plan ahead and keep these four keys in mind.
- First, decide how you want to propose.
When you are starting to think about getting down on one knee and asking the big question, it is important to decide how you want to propose. Does your significant other like surprises or would she be overwhelmed to be thrown off guard? Would she enjoy a proposal in public or be embarrassed if you asked her in a public setting, such as a sports game or public park? It is important to consider what your significant other likes and is comfortable with. Whether it is just you two with a low key proposal on your apartment couch or a helicopter ride overlooking the city, each proposal is special and unique in its own way, and is perfect when it matches the couple.
- Decide when you want to propose.
Next, it is important to start thinking about when you would like to propose and get engaged. For many, the holiday season is the perfect time when people have time off of work, can travel and can celebrate with the couple. However, it is also important to keep in the back of your mind when you and your soon-to-be-spouse would like to have a wedding. Depending on when you would like to have the wedding can determine how long or short the engagement is. Some couples talk prior to the engagement about when they would like the wedding to be.
- Decide how you want to share the big news.
In addition to thinking about when and where you would like to propose, how you share word of the engagement is also to think about beforehand. Would you like to host a party after the proposal with family and friends? Will you share the big news on social media? Some couples want to share the news right away, while others keep the news to themselves. While there is no right or wrong way to get engaged or share the news, this is something you can start to think about while planning the perfect engagement.
- Decide what the perfect ring will be.
Perhaps, one of the most important elements of planning the perfect engagement is selecting the perfect engagement ring for your loved one. When it comes to engagement rings, the options can seem overwhelming. However, there are many ways to reaching a decision on the right ring. Ask your significant other what style she likes, examine the other jewelry she currently wears or take a look at her Pinterest boards for hints. Engagement rings come in many metal colors, styles and shapes with a option of gemstones.
