Few people know this but today, March 20th, is actually National Proposal Day. The reasoning is actually somewhat thoughtful. March 20th is actually the Vernal Equinox meaning that the day and night lengths are equal, symbolizing the efforts of two partners needed for a successful marriage. Because of this day, a survey conducted by Tairlored.co shed some light on what women thought about some specifics of their proposal. Here are some of the survey questions and thoughts about them.
69% of women said their man proposed to them in private, with no one else around; 26% of women said there were LOTS of strangers around because he proposed in a very public place,
This is not too surprising because this has been the standard way of doing things. But the latest trends that we’ve been seeing is that people are getting engaged more often in semi-private places that are in public with people around but not huge amounts of people. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with private, public, or semi-private places as long as the proposal is personalized to your partner and to your relationship. Any proposal in these settings can be made special with the right touches.
9% said “Shoot i wish I were wearing a different outfit or at least had thrown on some makeup!”; 9% said “I wish I had gotten a manicure! I can’t take a pic of a ring with these nails!”; 6% said “EEEK! I don’t know if I like this ring!”
Guys really need to pay attention to these statistics because as you can see, 24% of women had a response that indicated that their proposal could have been better with either a better plan or ring. As
proposal planning experts, we can help you with ring selections that will make her jaw drop and with a proposal plan that will ensure that she is happy and not in a position where she will be embarrassed.
34% said he did NOT ask their dad or their mom; 22% of women said their guy did NOT get down on one knee
This is somewhat surprising because these are the traditional and well-known aspects of a proposal. Sure every relationship is different so the asking of the parents may vary, but the fact that that many guys did not make an effort to include their future family on their plans is too bad. Also, getting down on one knee is a very meaningful and classy gesture. We definitely recommend that the proposer do this.
