Getting Engaged

Christmas is here but more importantly, it is one of the busiest engagement seasons!

Popping the question has changed slightly over the years. For the proposer there is a much higher expectation of creative ways to propose.

My favourite one so far has to be from Annie & Geoffs real wedding:

Annie arrived home after a hard days work to find the hall covered in rose petals, (their baby pooch Holly was of course eating them). Now here is the best part…..I could actually cry…….Holly had a pink jumper on which said “Mammy, will you marry my Daddy?”. Dear lord Geoff, you’re killing us! In the living room there was Geoff on one knee in a three piece suit (even though it was one of the hottest days of the summer).  He had candles lit everywhere, roses and a bottle of champagne.”

The biggest change over the years is that the proposer wont buy the actual engagement ring but will use a ‘promise ring’, which allows the couple to shop together to ensure the right decision is made!

When it comes to shopping, there are a few ways to shop. I will be covering each way in detail over the next few blogs.

Choices include:

  • Hit the high street
  • Specialised houses
  • Make your own
  • Go abroad – focus on Antwerp

I will also be bringing you a guide when shopping, it will give you all of the things to look out for!

Stay tuned!
