The holidays are a popular time for weddings and engagements for a reason. This time of year is romantic and joyful, bringing couples closer together and solidifying their love for each other. Planning a proposal around the winter holidays can make the season even more magical and is sure to be unforgettable. Designer’s Touch Jewelry, your destination for engagement rings in Wellington, wants to help you make this moment perfect. Here are five tips for planning a holiday proposal from the experts. 

Timing and Location: The When and Where of Your Proposal 

Having the perfect location to pop the question is just as important as choosing the right ring. Where, however, entirely depends on you, your partner, and what feels right for your relationship. If your beloved is shy and introverted, for example, making a huge scene in the middle of a sports event may not be the best idea. Remember, this is a story they will be telling for the rest of their lives, so tailor your plans to suit your partner. You don’t have to break the bank or go overboard; a personalized approach will always be your best bet. 

Some questions you should ask yourself include: 

  • Outside or indoors? Be sure to consider weather! 
  • Day or evening?  
  • Where: at home? In your favorite restaurant? At a beautiful park or water front? 

Who Should Attend 

For some people, the proposal is a private and intimate moment for a couple to share without an audience. Others want close family members and friends to share in the moment and provide support. The decision either way depends entirely on you and your partner. Close loved ones can help in looking for engagement rings in Wellington, finding the perfect spot, and determining what you will say when you pop the question. As someone who knows your partner as well as you do, their insight may be invaluable. 

If you choose to include others in the proposal plan, be sure to choose the right people. Find those who will help to make the moment joyful and memorable for all the right reasons. If possible, have a family member or friend on standby with a camera to capture the moment authentically. Having someone you trust deliver the engagement ring can also help prevent accidentally spoiling the surprise. 

Engagement Ring Design 

There’s a reason people emphasize engagement rings in Wellington when planning the proposal. Your partner will wear your chosen ring for quite some time, if not the rest of their lives. Finding something that fits their style and aesthetics while also not interfering with functionality is important. While it may seem like the more glitz and glam, the better, if your partner is not a flashy person, it’s a waste of money. Find something that makes you immediately think of your so-to-be spouse. If you can’t, design one! The master jewelers at Designer’s Touch Jewelry are here to help make your vision a reality.

Create Your Game Plan

Now that you have the pieces in place, it’s time to finalize your plan. Some couples choose to have bit of fun with the proposal, creating fun scavenger hunts that are significant and meaningful to them. Others prefer to keep things simpler and intimate. Ultimately, the decision is up to you. Don’t bite off more than you can chew; too many moving parts can easily create snags in your plan.

When the nerves and anxiety set in, just remember what matters: your partner, your love, and your future. 

Enjoy the Moment

Once you’re done looking for engagement rings in Wellington, finding the perfect location, and planning what you will say, take some time to ground yourself and live in the moment. This is a magical time for you and your partner, so enjoying the moment can help to further strengthen your union.
