There are so many reasons to love a holiday proposal… family is near, there is a chill in the air, and there is cheer all around! Now is the perfect time to begin planning your holiday proposal at any one of Houston ‘s beautiful places to get engaged.

Here are our tips for getting a head start on planning your perfect holiday proposal—

1.     First, let’s talk about her style. 

Now is the time to chat with trusted friends and family members. It is likely that your future-fiancé has mentioned different styles she prefers— and maybe even some she doesn’t! Hopefully they can do a little behind-the-scenes work for you to find out what she likes.

The easiest step is to look at the jewelry she already wears. Does she wear minimal jewelry, or does she layer on her favorite pieces? Does she love the simplicity of a diamond, or is her jewelry box full of different colors?

Ask her with Imagine Bridal>

2.     Now it’s time to look at different engagement rings.

While your engagement ring turnaround time might be quick, it’s always better to begin your search early in case you want a custom piece or decide to include existing jewelry in your design.

While you might have an idea of what you like, seeing and feeling different designs might point you in a whole new direction!

3.     You’re ready to scope out the specifics.

With an idea of your engagement ring at least in the works, now you are ready to scope out the specifics of your holiday proposal: the where and when.

The place— Houston has beautiful landmarks ready for a romantic holiday proposal! We recommend looking at the Reflection Pool at Houston Zoo, Kemah Boardwalk and Gerald D. Hines Waterwall Park for your perfect proposal.

The time— Are there events over the holiday season where loved ones will be near? Even if you don’t want to propose in front of others, you might enjoy having them near to celebrate with after!
