A diamond ring shines best near glittering holiday lights, so it’s no surprise couples get engaged around this time of year. The jewelers are buzzing with excitement, there’s a warm feeling of love in the air, and countless people are looking to buy the best gifts for their family members. The holidays mean engagement season. Here’s why:
Surrounded by Love
Seeing your family and friends has a different meaning during the holidays. Everyone’s happy and showering one another with gifts and cheer so why not feed off that vibe and celebrate an engagement?
This is the time to include both your families in the proposal as well. Have your sibling be the photographer or see if her mother can meet you at the jewelers and help pick out the perfect diamond ring. After your special moment, the ones you love the most get to celebrate the creation of a new family.
The Gift That Keeps Giving
It’s universally acknowledged that a diamond ring is the best gift anyone can hope to receive. But before you wrap up just any old rock in a velvet box, do some research. Find a reputable jewelry store that can expertly guide you in choosing something perfect. Most jewelers will have great deals for the holiday season, too. You’ll likely go back to the same jeweler to pick out your wedding bands, so ensure there are unique choices that fit you and your love. Since this is peak proposal season, give yourself plenty of time to pick out the perfect engagement ring for that special someone. Jewelers know best and can help you along the way.
Pictures are the best way to remember a special event, especially when your honey wants to plaster that dazzling diamond ring all over social media. It’s an exciting time for both of you — not to mention your close friends and family — so it’s okay to boast! This time of year also offers a number of photo opportunities: upload a pic of her hand sporting that engagement ring in front of gleaming lights or sparkling snow (even if it’s fake snow). Don’t forget to tag the spot where you purchased your diamond — after all, jewelers deserve some love too.
By taking photos of your special day during this beautiful time of year, you’ll have physical memories to enjoy for years to come. After all, only half of adults in America are married, so give the other 50% something to talk about.
