Looking at Engagement Rings? The Do's & Don'ts for Holiday Proposals, Newport-Fort Thomas, Kentucky

When you and that special someone start looking at engagement rings, you might be thinking about when and where you will pop the question. Although winter weather conjures images of cozy fireside cuddles and walks in the freshly falling snow, there is a right way and a wrong way to propose during fun festivities. Here are a few do’s and don’ts for proposing during the holidays. 

Do: Take Advantage of the Ambiance 

One of the best things about the holidays is the change of scenery, so take advantage of the ambiance it provides by selecting a nostalgic setting for your proposal. Take a sleigh ride to find that Christmas tree, enjoy a ski trip together, or take a walk down a street that has just been illuminated with holiday lights. When the moment is right, you’ll know, and your surroundings will set the perfect stage for your question. 

Don’t: Propose Publicly

Do: Be Creative 

Every person is different, which is why you shouldn’t opt for a cliché proposal. Instead of getting down on one knee in that spot that you know a hundred people have gotten engaged before, use the holiday scenery as a chance to really be creative. Think about what your special someone would love and ask them in a way that they don’t expect.
