Are you planning a holiday proposal around Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, or another end-of-year holiday? Full of family, friends, and festivities, the holiday season is already a wonderful time of year, and a surprise proposal just adds the romance!
Here are our tips for getting a head start on your holiday proposal:
- Find her engagement ring style.
Look at the jewelry she already wears. Does she wear minimal jewelry, or does she layer on her favorite pieces? Does she love the simplicity of a diamond, or is her jewelry box full of different colors?
It’s also a great idea to ask trusted friends and family members. It is likely that she has mentioned different styles she prefers— and maybe even some she doesn’t!
Now is early enough to browse engagement rings together without spoiling the surprise. Try on rings in person, or begin by exploring different rings online.
- Consider a custom designed engagement ring.
While your engagement ring turnaround time might be quick, it’s always better to begin your search early in case you want a custom piece or decide to include existing jewelry in your design.
While you might have an idea of what you like, seeing and feeling different designs might point you in a whole new direction! Anything is possible when you custom design your engagement ring, and the cost is usually less than a designer ring!
- Scope out the specifics.
With progress made on the engagement ring, now is a great time to scope out the specifics of your holiday proposal.
Timing— Does your partner prefer one holiday over another? Are there events over the holiday season where loved ones will be near? Even if you don’t want to propose in front of others, you might enjoy having them near to celebrate with after!
Location— Consider the weather when planning an end-of-year proposal, and always have a backup for outdoor locations! North Royalton has beautiful spots ready for a romantic holiday proposal! We recommend looking at the Cleveland Aquarium, Cleveland Art Museum, and the Botanical Gardens for your perfect proposal.
