PUBLIC DISPLAYS OF AFFECTION
You’ve decided that you have found the “one”. You have saved up and purchased the perfect ring and now all you have to do is make the proposal amazing. Not too hard right?
From high altitudes to underwater with sea creatures, Those in love are getting bolder and more creative. In the techy world we live in there is plenty of competition to be the most unique, garner the most views and one up the next person. It all eventually boils down to love and affection and we love to get teary eyed right along with the next person.
Deciding to take the big step of getting married in and of itself can be daunting. The planning, the guest list, figuring out if you really can love this person for the rest of your life among other things…whew. But how do you stand out? How do you make the memory of your proposal unique, special and throw the odds in your favors of getting a Yes. That is also the chance you take, a public refusal…YIKES! I am not going to include any rejections in this blog to keep the spirit of forever after alive, but I am sure you have come across them. Enjoy!

No matter what your proposal style is does not matter as long as it is important to you and the one you hope to spend the rest of your life with. There are no right way and wrong ways to go about it. It’s your life, your love, and hopefully without an epic fail; your marriage.
It’s always a great time to be engaged!
Did you know the most popular time to be asked to be married is the Christmas season, followed closely by Valentines day ?
The ring finger is said to be the lifeline to the heart, or rather contain a vein that leads to the heart. That is why the ring is placed on the 4th finger. On the left in American weddings and the right in European weddings. (although there is scientific fact it is not really connected to the heart, it is still a timeless and steadfastly honored tradition)
