Christmas Eve is right around the corner and according to a recent survey it’s also the most popular time of year to get engaged! We’ve noticed that most couples tend to get engaged between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day, or as we call it engagement season. Getting purposed to is one of the most exciting moments in life, period! When Alex got down on one knee and asked him to marry him it was truly all a blur. I remember some of what he said, but then the tears of joy started and it all get a little fuzzy from there. Here’s some tips on saying yes when that magical moment comes to life!
The moment you realize it’s all happening it’s a whirlwind of emotions. He’s nervously talking, saying something really sweet, and bending down on one knee. You are trying to focus, but there are a million thoughts running through your mind, “This is really happening! Shit I should have had my nails done last week. That ring is amazing!” All those thoughts and so many more–plus you have to remind yourself to breathe.
Then the moment comes that he asks, “will you marry me?” It’s THE MOMENT! Take two seconds to breathe, enjoy the moment, and jump excitedly as you say YES over and over again. Now you are officially engaged and won’t be able to wipe the smile off your face (as if you would want to).
Take the next few days to call your family and friends, update your Facebook profile, and stare at the ring every chance you get (well maybe not while driving haha). You may want to immediately start planning, after all you probably made a secret Pinterest board prior to even getting engaged, but wait. Yes you heard right–wait. Not forever, but take a week or two to talk over your ideas with your finance. For most guys it’s overwhelming enough to purpose and then suddenly it’s *BAM* wedding planning, they need that time to adjust to all that has happened before hitting the planning hard.
We are SO excited thinking about all the proposals and engagements that are about to happen! No matter what your story will be we truly hope it’s the best day ever!! And remember to say YES loud and clear for him to proudly hear.
