Before the wedding comes the marriage proposal and here at the Waterfront Function Centre we know that many proposals occur during the festive season. Perhaps all the joy and goodwill just makes it the perfect time to pop the question and at the end of the year a proposal is a wonderful way to begin the new one.
Whatever the reason for choosing to propose at this time of year it’s important to make sure you do it well. After all, you’re making a memory that will last a lifetime.
First you have to choose the engagement ring and unless you’re really confident it might be a good idea to get some advice. Perhaps you can do a little window shopping together. I am sure she has dropped a few hints by now. Or check with one of your love’s close girlfriends if she has discussed what she would really like (and her bestie can also manage to keep a secret). Or maybe you should just buy the diamond and then get the ring hand-made together after the proposal. You know her best and will make the right decision.
Once the ring ( or diamond) is in your pocket, the next step is to pick the right time. You want to surprise your girlfriend but not throw her completely off guard. We’re going to assume you’ve both spoken about the possibility of spending the rest of your lives together, after all you want to be sure the answer will be yes. Oh and before you propose it is appropriate to speak to her father and ask for her hand in marriage. It’s only a formality these days but as with all lasting traditions, it is a gesture that is appreciated by all concerned.
The most important thing is to be yourself and propose in a way that fits in with your personality. The location will add a great deal to the moment so choose one that has some meaning to both of you whether that’s a beautiful natural setting or a sophisticated five star restaurant.
Two people agreeing to be wed is exciting and romantic so enjoy this time as much as possible. We’d love you to celebrate your engagement at the Waterfront Function Centre where we will help you make the most of this occasion.
You’ve made the decision to spend the rest of your life with someone you love and can’t live without. Now you just have to let her know that and we know you’ll find the right way to do it perfectly.
