If you have marriage on the brain, you might be wondering about the right time to propose. Should you wait a week, a month, or longer? There’s no true answer, because the timeline varies for everyone.
However, one of the best ways to plan a romantic marriage proposal is to build in ample time for finding vendors. When you work with The Heart Bandits, we’ll help you create a personalized proposal and find venues and vendors that can bring your vision to life.
As you begin the proposal planning process and map out your timeline, consider a few of the most important logistics.
The Jewelry Store
As you shop for the diamond of her dreams, most jewelers will have rings you can take home the day you buy them–but that doesn’t always mean they’ll have the exact style you want. You might want to customize the ring or order your diamond in a special cut or color. You might also want to get your ring sized so it fits her finger properly. In any of these cases, your jeweler will most likely have to place a special order which can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months.
Talk with a jeweler you trust, and ask them specific questions about the timeline. This is one of the first steps in planning your proposal. Once you have an idea of when you’ll have the engagement ring, everything else will fall into place.
Whether you want to propose on the rooftop of your favorite restaurant or rent a limousine to drive you around the city, it’s helpful to include some lead time to get the best deals and options. If you share the date you would like to propose with The Heart Bandits, we can take care of checking availability, comparing prices, and finding the vendors who can make your proposal special.
Consider venues, musicians, florists, chefs, and more. Especially if they work in the wedding industry, all of these individuals typically require advance notice. On the bright side, this gives you plenty of time to come up with the perfect way to truly surprise her!
Proposal engagement photographs are becoming more and more popular, mainly because photographers have an eye for capturing your authentic emotions and happiness. If photography is important to you, start by doing some research to find a photographer who matches your style. For instance, if you’re proposing in a natural setting, look for a photographer who has experience taking photos in natural light. If you’re proposing in a more urban setting, see if you can find a photographer who knows the area and is familiar with hidden spots that might make for beautiful photo opportunities.
With these types of photos in high demand, The Heart Bandits can help you book a photographer as soon as possible.
Even if you have your vendors booked and a beautiful plan created in your mind, make sure you take the time to think about how you’re going to express your feelings. If you give it some forethought, your engagement will be even more magical.
