26 Nov The Do’s & Don’ts of Holiday Proposals
‘Tis the season for holiday proposals. The twinkling lights, festive music, and stolen kisses under the mistletoe create an excellent atmosphere for romance. According to Wedding Wire, December 24th and 25th are two of the most popular days to get engaged, followed by New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
Here are some tips for making your holiday proposal perfect.
Do Your Research
A holiday proposal requires engagement rings in Scottsdale. You’ll want to do some research to discover your beloved’s style of jewelry. They may be drawn more to a specific gemstone, shape, and setting than others. Fashion magazines predict that a Georgian-inspired setting will be exceedingly chic in 2020. You’ll also want to find out their ring size.
Don’t Go Over Budget
Prices for engagement rings in Scottsdale vary depending on preferred gemstone and level of customization. Financial experts strongly encourage creating a ring budget based on your current financial situation. This is essential when making any big purchase. You can bring your ideas into Cornelis Hollander for fine jewelry and financing options.

Do Ask for Permission
In a season meant for practicing traditions, both new and old, asking your significant other’s parents before proposing is a sign of respect that, according to The Knot, is still ritualized no matter the season. The Knot also cites the popularity of including close friends and family in either the planning or actual moment. They can watch from a district distance and then celebrate with you after a resounding, “yes!”
Don’t Wear a Santa Suit
The holiday season provides a world of inspiration, from decorating to baking, which you can use to create holiday magic. You may want to save the Santa Suit for something else, though, unless your partner would love it. Some ideas for holiday proposals include gifting a new ornament that has the ring inside, getting down on one knee at Glendale Glitters, or holding a sign that has those four magical words hand-printed on it while searching for the perfect tree. Pinterest offers many more ideas, as well.
Do Pick a Time and Place
More so than at any other time of the year, choosing a time and place to ask, “will you marry me?” is essential. The holidays bring family gatherings, work parties, and cheerful movie marathons. Several straight-to-TV holiday movies are coming out, including A Christmas Prince: The Royal Baby, that you cannot miss. Your favorite restaurant may also have no seating available the closer it gets to the holidays. Scheduling the big event can help break the hustle and bustle of the holidays – even if it is only for a little while.
Don’t Forget to Make a Day Out of It
According to Brides Magazine, celebrating your commitment, either privately or with family and friends, is a spectacular idea. While dependent on where you popped the question, you can visit a festive venue, decorate your tree, build a snowman (if you’re up North), or kick back with a steaming cup of hot chocolate to watch your favorite holiday films with one another.
