we’re here to help— we’ve broken down the process to make things easier: how to start planning your engagement, all the logistics, and all the
when and where to propose: some prefer to choose a day and time, others prefer to keep the ring on hand and wait for the opportune moment. if you’re choosing the latter option, have an idea of what “the perfect moment” means to you so that when it comes you have the clarity and preparation all lined up. if you’re a planner, make sure you have an excuse to tell your partner so as not to spoil the surprise!

some want a cozy, intimate proposal, and some prefer a more extravagant one— whichever way feels right to you, this will be one of the biggest moments of your life.
no matter the setting, we recommend writing down and practicing what you’ll say when you get down on one knee so that you’re prepared for the momentous occasion! tell your beloved the reasons you fell in love, reference your journey so far, and talk about your hopes, dreams, and intentions for your future.
some things to remember for when the moment arrives:
it’s okay to be nervous! take some deep breaths, take your time, and remember that in this moment, the only thing that truly matters is the love between you.
you’ve done it! we can’t wait to celebrate with you— send us your love story and some photos so we can shout you out and share in your happiness. being a small part of this chapter in your story means the world to us, and truly is why we love what we do.
