Proposal Do’s and Dont’s
Proposals can be a minefield if you don’t follow certain guidelines and etiquette about how to pop the question in the best way. A disastrous proposal could not only make her think twice about marrying you but will leave you without what should be one of your most romantic memories as a couple. Get it right, and you will have a memory to cherish forever – as well as a wife!
Platinum Engagement Rings – Do’s
The first step to making a successful proposal is getting the timing right. Make sure you are at the perfect stage in your relationship to commit to each other, and that you’re not just proposing because things have gone a bit stale and you’re looking for a way to re-ignite the spark. Engagement rings are a symbol of eternal love and lifelong commitment, so if you don’t feel that way about your girlfriend, then you should wait.
Choose a romantic setting for the proposal. Spending a bit of extra cash on a weekend away and surprising her in a breath-taking location will impress her hugely. Getting down on one knee in your local chippie won’t. Consider booking a room at a luxury country hotel, or whisking her off to a romantic city like Paris. Engagement rings dazzle and shine even more when their surroundings are beautiful.
Engagement rings speak volumes about your relationship. Spend too little on a ring and your future wife will mark you down as being stingy. Choose a style that doesn’t suit her tastes, and she will think you don’t know her as well as you should do. Spend plenty of time researching different platinum engagement rings as well as looking in her wardrobe and jewellery box to get an idea of her tastes.
Platinum Engagement Rings – Dont’s
Be wary when buying engagement rings – you will need to make sure the retailer is a reputable jewellery company and can provide certificates for the diamonds. Don’t buy platinum engagement rings second-hand or off eBay as they could prove to be a fake. Stick to a well-established online retailer that has a good reputation and can still offer you excellent prices.
Don’t get seduced into buying one of the top-end engagement rings from a high street or designer retailer until you have shopped around. Online jewellery retailers now offer such amazing discounts because of their lower overheads, so the money you save on the ring could go towards booking the romantic weekend for your perfect proposal setting.
