Holiday & Christmas Proposal Ideas from Zales

There's a reason more than a quarter of all engagements occur between Thanksgiving and New Year.


Enjoy the Time Filled With Love and Joy, Friends and Family

There's no better season to add great moments and memories. Here's how to help it go smoothly:
  • Make sure the answer is "yes" before you pop the question at a family gathering
  • Be sensitive to others' feelings about your engagement — remember, it's a busy, emotional time of year
  • Have some general wedding date in mind, since everyone will ask
  • Get used to saying and hearing "my fiancé" or "fiancée" and expect a few fumbles.

From the Ring to Your Next Steps

If you're set on getting engaged, it's time to buy the ring. Not sure of her taste in engagement rings? Talk to her mom, sister or best friend before you hit the stores, and maybe even include them on the trip. They'll steer you in the right direction.

Of course, you may decide to wait and go shopping with your new fiancée. Make it special — you can bookmark pages of rings you think she'll love ahead of time. And once you do find the ring, be sure to insure it.

One last reminder: Start your serious wedding planning in January. After all, you'll want to find your dream venue — and you won't be the only couple who got engaged over the holidays!
