proposals

Thanksgiving is traditionally a special holiday celebrated by Americans and Canadians as a day of giving thanks for the harvest. Today, it has become a national holiday - held in the autumn - and provides the perfect opportunity to pop the question - giving thanks for your partner and the relationship you have shared. If you want to propose this Thanksgiving, here's some advice to take into consideration. DO remember the religious and cultural traditions of the holiday and use these to make the proposal extra special DON'T hide the ring in the food! There's nothing romantic about choking on a diamond while munching on turkey! DO involve family and friends who you are spending the day with DO pick the right moment - if your girlfriend is private she might not enjoy a proposal in front of the whole family at the dinner table DON'T steal the limelight during an important family tradition or blurt out the proposal during an awkward argument! DO give it some thought - proposing on Thanksgiving isn't enough, write a heartfelt speech or find a special way to present the ring to make the moment memorable and personal If you'd like to come up with a creative way to pop the question this Thanksgiving, or if you're looking for proposal advice or ideas on how to create a one-of-a-kind engagement, get in touch with The Proposers.
