Whew. You made it through the whirlwind of the holidays, from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day, and now you are in need of a little rest and relaxation as you get a fresh start to the year. If you are thinking about proposing to that special someone in your life on Valentine’s Day next month, now is the time to start making preparations, but this process doesn’t have to be stressful. Relax, and enjoy planning an unforgettable and romantic Valentine’s Day proposal!
1. Find the right engagement ring.
This is the step that often throws grooms-to-be into an unnecessary panic. Start by thinking back to conversations you and your girlfriend have had about marriage or your friends getting engaged. Did she make admiring comments about her best friend’s diamond engagement ring or drop any subtle hints about her opinions on white gold vs. yellow gold or a solitaire vs. a cluster ring setting? If you are drawing a blank, consult her close friends and family members for some insider info and take her personal style into account. Ask yourself if you can see her wearing a ring that is understated and elegant or a ring that is more glamorous and bold. Find out her ring size on the sly, and breathe a sigh of relief.
2. Order online.
Save money without sacrificing quality by ordering the perfect diamond engagement ring for your fiancee from an online vendor. My Trio Rings is able to offer beautiful, high-quality wedding jewelry at affordable prices because of lower overhead costs and other expenses than brick-and-mortar stores. Browse different styles on the My Trio Rings website at your leisure, without the high-pressure sales pitches or time constraints. Print out your top contenders and run them by your girlfriend’s sister, mother or best friend to get a reliable second opinion. When you’re ready, place your order online or ask for help from one of our customer service representatives (available via live chat, email or phone).
3. Pop the question (and the bubbly!).
Plan a Valentine’s Day proposal that is just right for you and your girlfriend. It doesn’t have to be elaborate or expensive to be meaningful and memorable. Consider what you like to do together, what your happiest memories are as a couple and what would be most special for her. For example, if you love exploring the outdoors together and she shies away from the limelight, plan a Valentine’s Day hike and picnic lunch to a beautiful spot and ask her to marry you with an audience of only the birds and squirrels. If she loves to share important moments with the people who are important to her, plan a romantic dinner for two... that turns into a surprise engagement party with your friends and family after you propose.
