Thinking of popping the question to your beloved sometime soon? Then youâ€™ll want to keep reading. Follow these five tips to make sure that your proposal goes off without a hitch!
Letâ€™s get serious for a moment. Have you found â€śthe oneâ€ť?
Itâ€™s a heavy question to consider, and most people toying with the notion of asking another human to spend the rest of their life with donâ€™t want to screw it up. Every element has to work together in harmony if you want everything to go as expected; youâ€™re going to want your future partner to remember this moment forever.
Luckily, we at Damiani Jewellers have helped more than our fair share of customers orchestrate the momentous event. Thereâ€™s plenty to think about before setting your master plan into motion.
Location, Location, Location
Dig deep here â€“ generally, itâ€™s got to either be somewhere youâ€™re both familiar with, a place that holds sentiment, or somewhere totally new, such as a new city youâ€™re both visiting for the first time.
The atmosphere will help set the mood in a big way, and the best choice will have a lot to do with your partner. Slyly working the proposal into an activity you already know they enjoy is a surefire way to put a little bit of love in the air. Weâ€™ve all seen the classic trope of a man proposing on the jumbotron during a sporting event when his future wifeâ€™s favorite team happens to be winning at the time.
This is something a lot of conspirators, especially those of the male variety, tend to overlook (Sorry, men! We tell you because we care).
Clearly, youâ€™re going to want some proof of the proposal to exist after the fact, and artificially-staged engagement shoots are, letâ€™s be honest, a little bit corny. You can either hire a professional to document from the shadows, or, more reasonably, let a friend or family member in on the secret so they can do the same. Crafty individuals may take advantage of planning their proposal during a time where recording video or taking photos is normal, such as Christmas morning while opening presents.
Props and Extras
What is your future fianceĂ© into? Food? Try cooking them a nice dinner, setting the scene in a way that is personal and appealing. It doesnâ€™t have to be expensive or fancy; never underestimate the power of a sentimental, handwritten note to go along with the proposal. It eliminates an air of careless spontaneity that some may find suspect.
This is something youâ€™ve spent a lot of time and thought into. It will reflect well on you to make that fact evident.
The Big Reveal
This part is key. Thereâ€™s always the tried and true practice of putting yourself before them on one knee, but some may find that old hat; feel free to get creative here.
Discreetly dropping the engagement ring into their glass of champagne while theyâ€™re momentarily distracted is one idea; another is tying it to the collar of their dog or cat. We believe it should come as a surprise, something they wonâ€™t anticipate â€“ the element of surprise will work in your favor when it comes to creating a lasting memory.
Obviously, this is where we enter the picture; with hundreds of engagement ring styles to choose from â€“ including solitaire, three stone, side stone, and halo designs â€“ we rarely meet a man or woman we arenâ€™t able to fully satisfy.
With competitive rates and a team of highly-qualified experts, you know youâ€™re in good hands. We even let you choose your own diamond, allowing you to customize any design we offer. If the time is right, weâ€™re here to help. Let us help you make the impression of a lifetime.
