Proposing to the man of your dreams?
If will you marry me? is on the tip of your tongue, you’re not alone. The fall months are known as “cuffing season” for a reason. The cool autumn temperatures bring couples inside for cozy evenings cuddled up in a fleece blanket in front of a warm fire. With all the love in the air and holiday cheer around the corner, it’s the perfect time to propose a lifelong commitment to your beau.
Hitched is different than your average jeweler and we celebrate all types of couples. Whether you’re a woman taking a stand and proposing to your boyfriend, or a man proposing to your man, the Hitched home try-on makes shopping for the perfect men’s engagement ring easy and stress-free.
First things first: Pick out his engagement ring.
What may seem like the hardest part of a marriage proposal can really be the easiest and most fun, for both involved. With the Hitched home try-on, you can choose five wedding rings to be sent to your home, for you and/or your boyfriend to consider. Here are your options:
Pick your favorite of the five. You know your guy better than anyone. Browse our selection of rings, pick five that speak to his unique style and we’ll package them up send them over to you to view in person. Take a few days to get a feel for each ring and then order the one that you know he’ll love. We also offer free exchanges within 30 days, so the only big commitment you’re making is with your beau.
Let him in on the fun! Narrow it down to five and let him pick his favorite. Choose five rings that speak to you and pick out your favorite for the proposal. After the proposal, he can try the other four on for size and feel and either stick with the one you picked out or go with another he prefers more.
Pro-tip! Not sure of his finger size? The average size for men’s wedding bands is a size 9, so go ahead and start there. It’s ok if it doesn’t fit perfectly – we offer free exchanges within 30 days.
Now for the important part: Plan the proposal.
Plan around your man. When planning the perfect proposal, keep his interests and personality in mind. Does he love the attention of a thousand admirers? Or is he the quiet type who prefers intimate activities that involve just the two of you? This is just as much his moment as it is yours. Sometimes the best proposals take place in the most random places – the top of a ski lift, on a road trip, a sleepy morning between the sheets, or on a quiet fall walk through the park. If he is one of those gents who responds to grand gestures, hype it up! If you know for sure that he’ll say yes, pop the question in front of friends and family during a holiday party or at your favorite restaurant.
The post-proposal reception. Many marriage proposals don’t come as a huge surprise anymore; it’s most likely followed by some pillow talk of a life of matrimony together, even if it’s just projecting about owning a house or even getting a dog together (two major commitments in themselves). So, if you’re confident that your presentation of an engagement band will be met with a resounding yes my love! - a fun way to ride on the coattails of your brand-new engagement is to plan a small reception immediately following your lover’s consent to marriage. Gather your friends and family at your local winery, brewery, group-friendly restaurant, or even a friend’s house for the post-proposal celebration. It’s a great way to kick-off your new engagement and share the love with your crew.
He has a ring, now what about you!
