Steps to success - getting engaged on Valentine's Day
Do it right and Valentine’s Day is the most romantic day of the year to get engaged.
Do it wrong though, and your proposal could quickly turn from charming to cringeworthy.
See below for our top tips to engagement success this Valentine’s Day:
Heart shapes, red, chocolates, roses… our cynical side can sometimes get in the way and make us start to think of valentine's day as a bit over the top and cheesy.
As soon as you start to second guess it though, things can start to fall flat.
You have to really embrace the holiday and go all out if you’re going to make a real success of it.
This is no time to be rethinking the heart shaped ring box or dozen red roses- they’re classic for a reason!
This is the one day of the year that we already anticipate some tokens of affection.
Keep up the suspense with smaller gifts dotted throughout the day- a card sent in the morning post, a box of chocolates at breakfast, a glass or two of your partners favourite tipple with lunch, a romantic meal in the evening and save the ring and the big question for when it’s least expected!
You’ve spent time getting to know each other.
You know that you want to spend the rest of your life with this person.
Sometimes there’s nothing more you can do or prepare than just have luck on your side and go for it… Feeling lucky?...
