Should You Buy An Engagement Ring Box?
You’ve been planning the special moment for months if not years and it’s finally come to the moment when it’s time for you to propose to your partner. It’s a highly nerve-wracking time as there can be a lot of pressure on you to make sure that everything goes as it should.
Even if you have meticulously planned every single detail of the engagement, there can still be extraneous variables that impact on the smooth running of the special moment. So although you can prepare the best you can for it, you can’t control everything. It’s good to take a step back and know what will be will be and that it will all turn out for the best in the end.
What to remember when planning an engagement proposal
Rather than scrupulously getting every detail as perfect as humanly possible, it’s important for you to take a step back and try to enjoy the moment too. Whilst it has been designed around your partner, it’s a special time for you as well. So as hard as it is to do so, do try to take it all in for yourself as well.
This will make the proposal even more perfect than you could have ever imagined. After all, there are two of you in the relationship and making sure that both of you are on the same page is important to the success of the moment. If you’re in the moment then it will be a far more perfect moment for both of you.
Saying this, although it’s vital that you enjoy the final moment, there are several other things that you may want to add to your to-do list prior to the important moment. It’s these little things that usually go amiss, but contribute to the moment not running as smoothly as you would have liked.
We always remember the main things, such as getting the location right and choosing the ring, but small things tend to slip our minds. It’s important to get all of these extra details in place in plenty of time. Doing so will keep your mind at ease and get those few more things done and ticked off your to-do list.
What to add to your to-do list
You probably have all of the main parts of an engagement under control but if not, here’s a quick lowdown. Of course, making sure that the ring is in order is super important. But on top of this, you will also need to look at getting an engagement ring box. Often, this is something that many people will forget about due to the ring being the main star of the show. But these boxes play a really important role in these situations.
Firstly, they are traditionally used to present the ring to your partner as you open the box to present the ring. They also make it far easier to carry and transport the ring around with you. Carrying a loose ring around in your pocket can be really risky, especially if you’re already prone to losing other things!
Keeping hold of a box is far easier than a ring. These boxes will also protect the ring from getting damaged. If you drop a ring from a height onto the floor, the metal will easily get scratched. If not the metal then the jewels are also at risk of getting scratched. Keeping it in a box will prevent it from such damage.
Another thing you will want to think about, is making sure that the event is planned for a day and time that you will both be free. You’d be surprised at the amount of time that is wasted res-scheduling an engagement as it turns out that the partner (or even the person proposing) isn’t actually free.
It can be difficult scheduling an event months in advance as plans can change. So one way you can overcome this is by informing your partner’s friend or employer what you are planning and ask them to organise time off for your partner. Doing this will ensure that the proposal remains a surprise, but will also happen when it’s meant to.
