Planning the perfect engagement for Christmas Eve

Are you planning to give your beau double the cheer this Christmas Eve by proposing to them? Are you out of ideas? Are you searching here and there on the internet to make the moment you ‘pop the question’ as perfect as possible? Well, we’ve got you covered.

If you’re ready for a lifetime commitment to your significant other, then you need to make sure that you execute everything flawlessly. The engagement doesn’t have to be luxurious, high-end, or grand; it should be meaningful and intimate.

First, you need to be sure that you two have a mutual agreement, and your partner is willing to spend the rest of their life with you as well. If all the ‘doubts’ that could potentially arise are clear, start searching for engagement rings, you could go for halo engagement rings or whichever ring you think your partner might like best. When buying the ring, be sure that you have a perfect size; you don’t want the ring to get stuck halfway on the finger or be too loose for them to wear on the way home. Then, try to make it all about your partner. It is primarily for her, and you need to show her that.

Planning the perfect engagement

Picking the perfect place is important too. You can take them someplace where the two of you had your first date or any other trademark location. Whichever place it is that you pick, ensure that it is quiet and private; you don’t want a big crowd spectating the two of you and getting in the way of this particular moment.  Remember that you and your partner will never forget this day for the rest of your lives, which is why you should enquire about the location you’ll propose at, so no spontaneous surprises arise and ruin the thing for you two.

Be completely honest about the compliments you give, and if you don’t know how to, take some time and think to yourself, what is it about your partner that you love? And why do you want to spend the rest of your life with them? Once you know the answer to that, tell them. Express your love for them, and don’t be afraid to get vulnerable or emotional.

Okay, now, saying a few nice things is mandatory. However, you also need to be careful that your proposal doesn’t end up with you giving an hour-long speech. Talk less, but beautifully, and then pop the question.

Now that you’ve purchased the perfect ring and booked an ideal place for your SO (significant other), you also need to take into consideration your appearance. Make an effort and look suitable for your partner. The outfit you’re wearing should be sophisticated but chic at the same time, and you don’t want to be too overly dressed.

However, don’t dress up in a tuxedo or suit, because that will give away the sudden engagement surprise because your partner will get a faint idea about what’s going to happen.  If everything goes perfectly, you will have a beautiful story to tell to your family, and hers, on this Christmas dinner.
