The holidays are just around the corner, y’all! What better way to ring in the festivities than with a holiday proposal and diamonds that sparkle?
Thinking of getting engaged this season?
We are so excited to kick off our holiday season with our tips on how to create the perfect holiday proposal guide with Gemvara, owned by Warren Buffet’s The Richline Group, one of America’s principle jewelry manufacturers, distributors and marketers.
Below are our top tips for coordinating your most successful proposal this holiday.
1. Choosing the perfect location
This holiday season, think creative and festive when choosing your location. Perhaps a local skating rink, at a holiday tree lighting, a rooftop restaurant with great views or perhaps a helicopter ride in your city. Prefer to make it personal? Chose a location with more meaning such as the location of your first kiss, your first date, etc.
Going back to that locale for your proposal signifies that your relationship has come full circle.
2. Include family & friends in on the festivities
They could be there with you during the proposal or lurking in the background ready to pop out with the “I do.” Involving family and close friends in on your special occasion can really commemorate the event and bring special meaning to your proposal.
If your special someone loves lots of wow, think about coordinating your family and friends releasing balloons, make congratulations signs or pop out with confetti for extra fun. If necessary, find a way to integrate the desire for friends and family at the event prior to your proposal
3. Select the perfect ring.
Gemvara believes no two people are exactly alike and nor should your jewelry. By combining the craftsmanship of fine jewelry with the ability to customize, they would with each customer to create one-of-a-kind pieces that help tell your story.

4. Hire or coordinate a photographer on location.
Whether you choose to have the photographer out in the open or hanging close to your proposal spot, having the opportunity to capture your special moment will be a decision you cherish forever. Expert photographers know how to capture the light, make your setting look even more magical, and position themselves perfectly to get a priceless shot of the look on her face when she realizes what’s happening.
5. Speak from your heart
Coordinating the most flawless proposal can be done, but the message you communicate to your special someone will make your proposal truly one-of-a-kind. Share with him or her what makes them special, why you love about them, and why they are the One.
If you told your best buddy after your first date that you knew she would be an important person in your life, then add that to your proposal “speech.” Then, talk about what you want to share with her in your future together.
Don’t forget to breathe! Speak slowly, and if you shed some tears, that just makes it all even more unforgettable.
6. Pop the question earlier in the evening.
Instead of proposing at the end of the night, after a romantic dinner, carriage ride, concert, or some other activity, start off at the place where you’ll pop the question and then enjoy an evening filled with events that you’ve planned. That way, you won’t be nervous all night.
Plus, she gets an entire night of wearing and showing off that engagement ring, right now, rather than having to wait until the next day.
