Whether you're a closet selfie taker or proudly strike a pose in the middle of a crowded restaurant, you may have the urge to share the perfect engagement ring selfie when it comes to your marriage proposal.
That's a perfectly normal reaction. In fact, four years ago, it happened to me.
I bet I know what you're thinking. "How do I make my diamond ring look as amazing in a photo as it does on my finger?"
Getting engaged is one of those life-changing moments that makes you want to shout from the rooftops.
It’s right up there with getting into your dream school, having your first baby, and finding out your grandma chose you to inherit her vintage sapphire necklace. (Okay, maybe that last one is just us.)
The moment of a marriage proposal is a blur, whether or not you are the one down on a knee or you are the one with a ring placed on your finger. No matter how much you want the moment to last forever, it goes by all too quickly.
Sure, having friends snap pictures and videos on their smartphones or hiring a photographer are great ways to document your moment forever. But what if you want to relive your emotions from the “ring’s-eye-view”?
Aside from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it’s also a great time to reflect on our good fortune, family and friends and to recall the fond memories of the past year.
Our thoughts quickly turn to the fun we had in helping plan a holiday proposal in New York City last year, as part of our Perfect Proposal contest. We are in a bit of disbelief as we celebrate the one-year anniversary of Matt and Linda’s marriage proposal at the top of the Empire State Building.
Along with a crisp chill of winter's impending arrival, love is also in the air. 'Tis the season to get engaged!
If you're thinking of a holiday proposal, the No. 1 item on your shopping list this season is an engagement ring. It will be one of the most cherished, and likely expensive, pieces of jewelry you'll own.
