A successful proposal can lead to marriage and determine who you will spend your life and raise a family with. Proposing marriage is one of the most significant steps you will take during your lifetime.
It’s a good idea to discuss marriage and get an idea of what type of ring your partner would like before proposing. Once you have the ring, you can choose a creative holiday proposal to make your engagement unique and memorable.
1. Advent Calendar Surprise
An Advent calendar is used to count down how many days remain until Christmas. Advent calendars come in a wide range of styles. Some have small compartments you open to access a candy while others have ornaments concealed in small drawers or compartments behind the date. There are also cloth Advent calendars with pouches for each day of Advent. If you purchase a reusable Advent calendar with drawers, compartments, or pouches, it will be easy for you to hide the ring inside the Advent calendar. This is the perfect way to surprise your partner, particularly if you have a ritual of marking each day of Advent.
While your partner opens the compartment, you can get down on one knee and be ready to propose when they discover the ring. You can choose from engagement rings Northern Virginia and opt for a solitaire engagement ring, with a single gemstone, or select a halo ring with a circle of diamonds surrounding the featured gemstone. When the largest gemstone has smaller gemstones on each side of it, it’s a three-stone ring. Taking time to try on rings before you propose can ensure you know your partner’s ring size and ring style preference to ensure you pick the perfect engagement ring.
