Saving Money on an Engagement Ring

How Much Should You Spend on an Engagement Ring?

By | Engagement Rings | No Comments

If you’re thinking about “popping the question”, then one of the first questions that you likely have to ask yourself is, “How much should I spend on an engagement ring?”  This is, of course, a loaded question with no simple answer.

The old standard that many jewellers recommend as a rule of thumb for engagement ring cost is 2-3 months’ salary, but this is overly simplistic.  It may be wildly out of proportion with what you can afford, and what your partner may be expecting.

It actually was developed as a marketing term for DeBeers, one of the biggest diamond suppliers in the world, as a way to try to increase people’s spending on engagement jewellry.  At the same time, it’s based on a bygone era of stable, well-paying, 40-hour-a-week jobs at the same company for years on end, with pensions and retirement benefits – things that are the exception rather than the rule today.

how much should you spend on an engagement ring

But don’t despair!  Though the answer to that question may be a bit more complicated, we’ll walk you through all the considerations and help you arrive at a conclusion that makes sense for you and your unique circumstances.  That way, you can focus your energy on crafting the perfect proposal and making a memory to last a lifetime, as you (hopefully) take the first step towards a new life together.

In this guide, we’ll discuss:

1. The average cost of an engagement ring
2. Understanding your relationship and partner’s expectations
3. Things to consider about purchasing an engagement ring
4. How to budget for and save for an engagement ring
5. Tips on saving money on an engagement ring purchase

Average Cost of an Engagement Ring

Average Cost of an Engagement Ring

First, it’s important to get some basic facts about the typical price of engagement rings, and the average that people spend on buying an engagement ring.  The numbers vary considerably based on a variety of factors, including geographic region, socioeconomic status, demographics, and more.  The best data sets we have come from the US and Canada, where prices for engagement rings are nominally similar.

Over the past decade, the average cost of an engagement ring has increased slightly, at a bit more than the rate of inflation, but largely fall between $5,000 and $6,000. But remember, that’s the average – there are plenty of rings out there that cost a $1 million or more, and plenty that are well below that average price.

One of the biggest mistakes people make when looking to purchase an engagement ring is feeling compelled to spend more because a certain number is “average” or maybe what friends, family, or others tell you is the right range to spend.  We don’t present this information for that purpose, but rather to give you a good sense of the baseline – the true average that people are actually spending – before we dive into a much more nuanced discussion to help you determine how much YOU should spend on an engagement ring.

Understanding Your Relationship and Partner’s Expectations

Budget and Save for an Engagement Ring

Some people will tell you that an engagement ring doesn’t really matter – it’s just an item, a materialistic symbol, and that real love doesn’t need such things.  While that’s certainly a nice sentiment, it’s not entirely practical for the vast majority of people looking to purchase an engagement ring.  It is very likely that your potential fiancée has been dreaming about their ideal engagement ring for a long time.

They are likely to have certain preferences and expectations, and you don’t want to disappoint them.  At the same time, expectations should be tempered by reality – after all, if your partner is more concerned about the ring than you going into debt to pay for it, that in and of itself should give you pause about the status of your relationship!

There are no hard and fast engagement ring rules, after all, and every relationship and individual is different.  With that said, though, it’s important to remember these things about your relationship and partner’s expectations:

1. An engagement ring is designed to be a symbol of your relationship, your love, and your commitment to each other. The expense and opulence itself is part of a gesture, to show you are giving of yourself – spiritually, emotionally, and materially – towards a shared future together.  That shouldn’t be undervalued or overlooked.

2. Some women have a strong preference for the type of stone, setting, shape, band color, and whole manner of other aspects of their ring. Others don’t care nearly as much, and would be happy with almost any choice so long as it comes from love.

Only you can know the type of person your significant other is, and what they might expect, and have to walk that delicate line.

3. Recognize that, for most women, this is going to be the most important piece of jewellry they own, and they’re going to wear it and have it on full display every day for the rest of their lives. While the ring is designed to make them happy, it also does serve as a bit of a status piece, to show off to friends and family.

The degree to which this may matter for your particular significant other is, again, something that only you can determine.

All of this is not to say that you absolutely need to purchase an extravagant, extremely expensive engagement ring.  $30,000 engagement rings may be offered by most jewellers, but they’re the exception rather than the rule in terms of what they sell.

Finding that balance between affordability and expectations, and knowing what (and why) aspects matter to your potential fiancée, are the core principles underlying selecting a perfect engagement ring that won’t bankrupt you in the process.

Things to Consider About Purchasing an Engagement Ring

How To Buy An Engagement Ring

No, we’re not talking about cuts, gem grades, or anything like that here.  That’s a separate topic for another guide.  Rather, there are several things you should consider before purchasing an engagement ring, specifically with regard to your finances and pricing engagement rings.  Specifically:

1. As discussed above, you’ll want to have a good understanding of your relationship and your partner’s expectations, as this will dictate some portion of your decision-making in terms of how much to spend.

2. After engagement comes marriage, which usually includes wedding expenses, honeymoon expenses, possibly moving into a new home together, merging of finances, and a whole host of other things that all add up to costs and strains on your finances. Think about the long-term, and temper your eagerness to impress her with an amazing engagement ring with the long-term financial needs you foresee once she says, “Yes.”

3. Don’t go into significant debt to pay for an engagement ring. It can drag down your credit score, and make it harder to pay for all the other, more necessary expenses (such as housing) that are likely to be part of your near-future when she accepts your proposal.

4. It’s often ideal to look at your current income and expenses, perhaps on a monthly basis, along with your savings and existing debt. Try to determine how much you can set aside each month for a few months to save up to buy a ring.

And, if that’s not enough, determine how much financing or debt you could pay off over the course of a few additional months after the purchase, and use those two figures as a good guide for what you can realistically afford.

5. Be honest and serious in your relationship. If you’re at the point where you are ready to propose, then you should have some sense of a shared expectation on how your finances are handled, what reasonable expenses are for something like this, and, again, what her personal expectations are.

Some women (though in the minority) would be off-put by you spending hard-earned money on something frivolous, whereas we’ve heard of other women who were insulted by a sub-$1,000 ring and cajoled their man into returning it for something more expensive.

6. Remember, spending a lot of money doesn’t equal love. It’s also a two-way street when you seek to determine how much you can budget or save for an engagement ring.

If you spend hundreds of dollars a month on hobbies or luxuries of your own, then it’s clear you can set aside hundreds of dollars a month for a few months to be able to buy her a nice engagement ring.

If you’re already struggling financially, and don’t spend on anything non-essential, then it’s also much more understandable for you to spend less on a ring than the average engagement ring costs mentioned earlier.

How to Budget and Save for an Engagement Ring

Based on the above, you may be wondering how to budget for an engagement ring purchase, and how to put money aside to save up to make that purchase.  Once you start to get serious about popping the question, it’s best to have a plan in place to pay for or finance your engagement ring.

Try to set aside some money out of each paycheck or pay period specifically for the engagement ring purchase.  If you need to open a separate bank account to do it, then go for it – anything that will keep you from otherwise spending the money.

At the same time, you can’t neglect your regular necessary expenses.  But you can dial back luxury or non-essential expenses a bit to help you save up for the ring.  Cut coupons, go out to eat less, reconsider purchases of things like electronics or new clothes, and otherwise try to be more frugal in your expenses.

It also doesn’t hurt, if you have the capability of doing so, to work a few extra shifts, get some overtime, ask for a raise, take on a new project, or even get a side job in the gig economy, such as driving for Uber or working for DoorDash or something like that one or two nights a week.  It’s a quick and easy way to generate extra cash to afford the cost of an engagement ring.

Tips on Saving Money on an Engagement Ring Purchase

Here are a few more tips that can help you save money on your engagement ring purchase.

1. Shop at a reputable retailer, either in person or online. Comparison shop before making your final purchase.  Reputable retailers that have been in business for quite awhile, such as Randor Jewellry, will be able to make suggestions on designs and other elements to work with almost any budget.

2. Don’t shop at peak times for engagements, or you’ll likely encounter higher prices. The laws of supply and demand still apply, even when it comes to engagement rings.  The most active time for buying engagement rings is between November and February.  Try buying outside those months for the best deal.

3. Fully research engagement rings, engagement ring prices, and the factors that impact them, including the 4 “Cs” – carat, clarity, cut, and color – so you know what you’re talking about, and what to expect, and why two rings that look almost identical maybe thousands of dollars apart.

4. The diamond is the most expensive part of the ring, but if you are looking for a budget engagement ring that still looks lovely, consider spending a bit more on a flashy or opulent setting, as they can make even small diamonds look much more blingtastic.

5. Diamonds are not the only choice, either. While it is traditional, it can be replaced or augmented with other stones, especially if your significant other has certain gemstone preferences.  Colors and shapes can also play a big part in the look, and the cost of an engagement ring.

6. Many retailers allow you to customize a ring online in advance and get a sense of the options, what goes into the different prices, and what you’re looking for. Take advantage of these free tools before you shop.

7. A brand new ring doesn’t necessarily mean a brand new diamond or other gem.  Sometimes, you can find or repurpose gems from jewelry purchased at estate sales, in closed lots online, or from other sources – even bequeathed heirlooms.

Providing your own stone can radically reduce the price of an engagement ring, and most jewellers are happy to find an appropriate setting for the stone at a reasonable price.

Xmas Proposal Engagement Ring

10 Totally Romantic Winter Proposal Ideas

By | Engagement Rings | No Comments

We’re all familiar with peak wedding season in Canada. From June to about mid-October, couples across the country are taking advantage of nice weather and summer holidays to tie the knot. But what about engagements? It turns out that winter is actually the most popular season for couples to get engaged. As the days get shorter and colder, you might have already seen the ads for engagement rings creeping up on your social media.

The winter months provide some great opportunities to propose to your special someone. Besides the magic of the Christmas holidays and the romance of Valentine’s day, you’ve got many more options to make your proposal a memorable one.

Here’s a list of 10 totally romantic ideas to get you inspired.

The Cozy Proposal

Colder temperatures in late fall and winter bring us closer together. There’s nothing quite like a cozy romantic night in with your partner – the perfect setting for a proposal. Make some warm drinks like hot chocolate or mulled wine, and slip into ultimate coziness before you pop the question.

If you want to send it over the top and be super cute, present your partner with a custom mug that reads “will you marry me?” It might sound silly, but it will make for an adorable keepsake to commemorate the event. Make sure to have some alternative beverages on hand in case they’re not in the mood for a hot beverage.

The First Snow Proposal

This one is simple but effective. It will require some flexibility, however. You’ve got to be ready when that first dusting of snow appears. If you’re lucky, you’ll get an overnight snowfall, which means you can set up your proposal before your partner wakes up.

If that’s the case, you can make a trail of footprints leading towards a question (maybe also written in the snow) or somewhere where you’ll be ready to propose. If not, you can take advantage of a first snowfall when you’re out and about and propose then. In either case, follow up with a special event like breakfast in bed or a romantic dinner.

The Winter Stroll Proposal

Whether it’s a nice walk on a crisp winter morning, or a magical stroll through an illuminated city, the winter stroll is a classic proposal idea. Even if there’s no snow on the ground, you’ll both be invigorated by the glittering frost and chill air.

Choose a nice path to walk along, like a park or quaint corner of your town. A sunrise walk is also a great idea. Try to find a place that’s relatively quiet. If there’s snow on the ground, find an area that people haven’t walked on yet. Reward yourselves with a nap and enjoy the rest of your day together.

The Surprise Family Visit Proposal

The winter seasons brings many opportunities for family visits, whether it’s for Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s. In many cases – especially if you’re a young couple – you might find yourself splitting up to visit your respective families. How about this time you pretend you’re leaving, but show up at your partner’s family gathering to propose instead?

You can really play this one up. Say your tearful goodbyes, and then surprise your partner when they answer the door wondering who it could be. This is a great way to incorporate the family into your proposal – but keep in mind it might not be for everyone!

The Holiday Lights Proposal

Christmas lights can sometimes be a bit of a competition, especially in the suburbs. It seems like they are going up earlier every year – and people are not shying away from going all out. Why not get in on it and set your proposal against a magical, illuminated backdrop?

If you want to take it to the next level, you could set up the question written in lights. At the very least, create your own romantic space (whether indoors or outdoors) with a few well-placed coloured lights. Make sure you get some private time to set it all up.

The Skating Rink Proposal

If you’re like most Canadians, chances are you know your way around a skating rink. Ice skating is a classic winter activity that can be very romantic. It’s the perfect setting for a winter proposal no matter how skilled you are.

If you’re a pro, you can reserve the rink for just the two of you and glide gracefully around your partner as you propose. If you’re not, you can always score some points for being adorably clumsy. If you don’t want to take a chance with your balance, you might want to skip this one altogether!

The Christmas Morning Proposal

If you want to make your winter proposal extra memorable, there’s no better way than to tie it in with Christmas. You can borrow some of that Christmas magic and propose to your partner surrounded by friends and family, or plan a quiet romantic Christmas morning for just the two of you.

Proposing in front of the tree is a classic – you can even present the ring disguised as a Christmas gift. You can also get creative and embed the proposal in a tree ornament or stocking. These are all cute ways to create special moments you’ll treasure forever.

The New Year’s Eve Proposal

If there’s anything more classic than the Christmas proposal, it’s probably the New Year’s proposal. Everything is already set up for you, and you’ve got the perfect excuse to go out for a special evening – complete with champagne and celebrations.

Time it right, and you’ve got yourself an unforgettable winter proposal. Find a romantic place for the countdown, and let the surrounding revelry set the stage for an amazing moment. Propose just after midnight and then join the party! Fireworks, champagne, dressing up and being around loved ones – what more could you ask for? Plus, you’ll add excitement to an already festive atmosphere.

The Winter Activity Proposal

For some people, winter means adventure. There’s a host of outdoor activities to enjoy during your typical Canadian winter, from skiing to snowboarding to hiking. If your partner is into that lifestyle, there’s no better way to make your proposal stand out than by pumping it with some adrenaline.

Whatever your chosen winter activity is, you’ve got plenty of opportunities to propose to your partner. You can plan it so you propose at the bottom of a ski hill, when you reach the end of your cross-country trail, or when you’ve found a secluded spot on your hike. Whatever you decide to do, make sure you’ve planned a relaxing and romantic evening to follow it up.

The Winter Getaway Proposal

If you live somewhere that doesn’t see any snow, you can always plan for a winter getaway with your partner. If you’re so inclined, there are many destinations that can offer you stunning backdrops for a perfect winter proposal. Everyone loves a romantic getaway after all.

If you set out to explore Scandinavian countries or even take an Alaskan cruise, you’ll have many breathtaking opportunities to create memorable moments. Check out places where you might see the magical northern lights for the ultimate winter proposal!

How to Budget for An Engagement Ring

By | Diamonds, Engagement Rings | No Comments

So, you’ve made the big decision to ask for your partner’s hand in marriage. Good for you! Next comes the second big decision: buying an engagement ring. With so many types of engagement rings out there, this can seem like a daunting process. However, there’s hope. If you’re like most people, you’ll have to think about the cost of the ring, and that means setting a budget. Fortunately, it also means you’ll narrow down your options considerably once you figure out how much you can spend.

It might not be romantic, but setting an engagement ring budget makes a lot of sense. After all, you don’t want to end up in a difficult financial situation before you’ve even popped the question – save that for after your wedding day!

Start off by Reviewing Your Current Expenses

There are many rules of thumb about how much to spend on an engagement ring –  you’ve probably heard the “two months salary” clichés. These are just broad guidelines, but they point to a simple truth: buy a ring that matches your financial reality.

Be smart about setting a budget. Don’t just figure out how much you make in a month and start shopping. Take into account your debts, your expenses, bills, mortgage payments, taxes and everything else your money is going to.

Take the time to subtract your monthly expenses from your income, and consider any existing long-term debts. If you have savings, great – just make sure they aren’t needed for something else. Bottom line: if you don’t think you can afford a ring that will suit you right now, then wait. Plan for it in the future and start saving towards your goal.

Coming up with a budget in this way won’t just help you buy an engagement ring. It will also make financial planning easier in every aspect of your life. Remember, the engagement ring is only part of the first step. Once you propose, you’ll need to focus on paying for your wedding and honeymoon, so it makes sense to get your finances in order now.

How to Get Good Value in an Engagement Ring

Now that you’ve set your budget, it’s time to shop for a ring. Since you’re operating within a limited framework, you’ll want to focus on getting the best value for your dollar. Here are some tips to help you achieve that goal.

Prioritize Cut

You’ve heard of the 4 Cs – cut, color, clarity and carat weight. For maximum value, focus on the cut (not to be confused with the shape) of the diamond. If you get a ring with an excellent cut, it will reflect light in just the right way to give it that classic sparkle. On the other hand, if the cut is sub-par the diamond will look dull. Prioritizing the cut will ensure your ring provides the most impact for your money.

Be Smart with Carat Weight

Carat weight affects the size of the diamond, and can really make the price go up fast. Save some money by buying a diamond that is slightly shy of a full carat in size. For example, a 0.9-carat diamond will cost less than a 1-carat diamond, but the difference in size will be negligible.

Consider Shopping Online

You can save quite a lot of money by shopping for an engagement ring online. Online jewelers don’t have to spend money on expensive showrooms and storefronts, so they can sell diamonds for less. Plus, shopping online makes it really easy to compare prices and quality between jewelers.

In the end, buying an engagement ring isn’t that complicated if you set a budget. Follow these tips, and you’ll have more time – and money – to spend planning your wedding day!

10 Tips for a Flawless Holiday Proposal

By | Engagement Rings, Inspiration | No Comments

The holiday season is fast approaching, and with it all the festive cheer – and food – we love to partake in every year. With all the eating, drinking, and merrymaking, it’s no surprise that the most popular time to pop the question is between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve. It’s a time of year when spirits are high, vacations are planned, and families have gathered to celebrate.

If you’re planning a holiday proposal, you’ve got to make sure that you pull it off flawlessly. Despite it being a great time to do it, you need to properly navigate all the potential pitfalls this season can present. Here are 10 of our favorite, season-specific tips that will help you make your holiday proposal a memorable one for all.

  • Be prepared.

Chances are you’re going to be nervous – most people are. There’s no shame in writing down what you want to say and rehearsing it a few times before the big moment. Go ahead and do it in front of a mirror. It might sound like a strange thing to do, but you will be glad you did it when the moment of truth arrives.

  • Think about her family.

We don’t mean automatically include her family in the event. Just consider the family situation. If your soon-to-be fiancé has a close-knit family that loves you, you might want to include them. If you’d like the proposal to be just you two, then go for it!

  • Consider doing it at home.

Instead of proposing in a crowded restaurant, consider hiring a chef for a romantic, home-cooked meal. Do you have the skills? Prepare a delicious dinner for her – but don’t get lost in making it too elaborate.

  • If you’re traveling, be covert…

If you’re taking a plane, pack the ring in your carry-on luggage (rather than keeping it in your pocket) to prevent airport security from spoiling the surprise!

  • …And do it sooner than later.

If you’re planning a destination proposal, pop the question on the first day so you can relax for the rest of the trip. There’s nothing worse than nerves putting a damper on your fun.

  • Seduce her senses.

Make your proposal unforgettable by incorporating all five senses. The scent of fresh pine, a mug of hot cocoa, a roaring fire, a cozy blanket, and seasonal songs playing in the background will make for a memorable setting.

  • Secure the ring.

This tip might not be romantic, but be sure that the ring is secure inside the box before putting it in your pocket so it doesn’t pop out. Proposing without the box? Safety pin it to the inside of your pants pocket for extra security.

  • Insure the ring.

As a follow up to the above, insure the ring before you propose. Again, this isn’t romantic, but accidents happen. Be prepared for them!

  • Choose the right day.

Avoid proposing on or right before someone else’s big day or any other special day. This includes birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays. This is an important thing to remember since you’re choosing the holiday season to propose.

  • Be creative, but clear.

Writing a poem or composing a song for your proposal is great, but make sure finish with the precise words: “Will you marry me?” It will prompt your sweetie to give you the answer you’re waiting to hear!

How to Find an Engagement Ring that Suits your Hand

By | Diamonds, Engagement Rings | No Comments

If you’re shopping for the perfect engagement ring, you’ve most likely encountered an overwhelming amount of styles and options. That being said, there is a way to narrow down your search beyond the standard considerations like the 4Cs (carat, cut, clarity and colour). You need to find an engagement ring that will suit the hand it’s going to be placed on.

Think of it like buying a piece of clothing. You will consider what the clothes look like themselves, but the real test will be how they look on you. It’s the same with engagement rings. In this case, it’s all about finding a ring that will complement the structure of your hand and fingers.

Engagement Rings and Finger Types

There are many guides out there about matching ring styles to your hand, and they all essentially come down to these criteria: finger length and width.

Before we get into our specific guide, it’s important to remember a general rule: choose a ring that matches your personality and style. There are technical considerations that come with different finger types, but don’t let that be the deciding factor. This guide is meant to complement and further narrow down your choices once you’ve got an idea of what type of ring you’d like – and remember, all rings can be re-sized and customized for your particular needs.

So let’s take a look at how an engagement ring will interact with your finger.The first measurement you should look at when considering a ring is finger length.

Long Fingers

If you’re dealing with long and relatively thin fingers, you’ve got many engagement ring options that will look great on them. Here are a few points to consider that will complement long fingers of a slender nature.

  • Wider bands will balance the length of the finger
  • Princess cut and round diamonds generally complement long fingers nicely
  • Long fingers can get away with bolder styles overall

This engagement ring is a particularly strong and dynamic choice for people with long, slender fingers.

Short Fingers

In this case, you typically want to choose an engagement ring that will serve to elongate the appearance of the finger, regardless of how wide they are. Note that when dealing with short fingers, you need to be careful not to choose a ring that will overpower the finger.

  • Narrower bands will create the illusion of length
  • Pear, oval and marquise diamonds will complement shorter fingers
  • Rectangular shaped stones can also serve to elongate the appearance of the finger

This white gold ring is the perfect example of flattering ring for short fingers.

Finger width is another criterion that should be looked at, but generally speaking there are more specific things you need to consider when dealing with thick or wide fingers.

Wide Fingers

Think of wide fingers as a bigger canvas for showing off the engagement ring. That means that you want to use it – don’t go for a small ring that shows too much skin on either side of it. Consider the following points:

  • Thicker bands will help balance out the finger’s width
  • Wide oval, marquise or rectangular shaped diamonds will complement this type of finger
  • Bold and asymmetrical designs can be put to good use in this case

A split-shank band such as this piececan also help to elongate the finger

Very Slender Fingers

No matter then length, it’s important to keep in mind that if the fingers are very slender, you don’t want to overpower them – even though longer fingers can carry a bit more boldness on them. That’s the only rule you need to think about in this case.

Big Knuckles

If you’ve been blessed with big knuckles, you might want to take attention away from them and make sure people are focusing on the ring. Wide bands and ornate centres are a great way to achieve this.

This round-cut diamond engagement ring with a double-cushion halo creates the perfect eye-catching focal point.

These simple guidelines will help refine your search for the perfect engagement ring without compromising your personal style. Browse Randor’s wide range of styles and designs with this in mind, and be sure to reach out if you have any questions.

Planning the Perfect Proposal

By | Diamonds, Engagement Rings, Inspiration | No Comments

The time has come for you to ask your partner to tie the knot and you think to yourself how am I going to do this? The truth is, planning the perfect proposal can be a lot of pressure. There are decisions to make, a meld of choices and it can be really simple and personal or more lavish and public. Here are some considerations to help you work out the fine details for the perfect proposal.

Finding the right engagement ring

This is the first step. Have you and your fiancée-to-be spoken about ring designs? Do you have any indications of what they like or do not like from friends or family? Take the time to make a detailed account of their preferences and browse our selections of rings to find fitting choices or think about designing a custom ring!

Timing

Does your partner love the wintertime? Have they fancied being proposed to on a white Christmas or would a cottage in the summertime be more their speed? Picking a comfortable time to propose to your loved one adds an even sweeter note to an already sweet gesture.

Timing factors include:

  • Their favourite season(s)
  • The location
  • How busy they are
  • Their schedule and plans

Make sure to pick a time that considers all of these factors so your partner feel like they were truly thought of in the proposal.

 Alone or together

Another thing to consider is who to involve in your proposal. Do you involve family or friends? Or do you just keep it the two of you? This is something that you, the one proposing of course, have to feel out. It could be really fun to involve friends and family (at a holiday dinner as an example) but many people prefer to keep things close and intimate, too. Think about your fiancée and what they would enjoy the most and choose wisely!

Defining Features

 Some defining features to make your proposal stand out beyond the gorgeous engagement ring, timing and location include:

Hiring a photographer – Capture that moment of surprise in a beautiful photo, a keepsake to put in the home you plan to build together. This could be an amazing addition to wedding photos you’ll take in the future.

Integrating music – If there’s a particular song that signifies your relationship, why not make an added romantic and include it in your proposal?

Creating a personal motif – Find a symbol that points back to a pivotal moment in your relationship – a joke, a moment, your first date etc. This will make your gesture even more personal and remind them again why the two of you are meant to be together.
