Someone is Getting a Ring… Right Now

The Holidays are a very popular time of year for proposals. Between Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years, the magic of the first snow fall, the family gatherings, and the copious amount of alcohol, a lot of Grooms-to-be are finding the perfect time to pop the question. Or they’ve gotten a hold of some liquid courage. Either way. Right now some love-sick putz is down on one knee.

We need to be aware of these things – proposals I mean. More proposals, mean more weddings, which mean more Bridesmaids. We have a vested interest.

I personally feel that our job as members of the bridal party begins before there is a wedding in sight. We are the female correspondents to the groom-to-be. When there are rings to purchase, proposals to organize, we have to step up to the plate. So do your friends (potential Brides and Grooms) a favor and get your acts together Bridesmaids. According to some site that I found while browsing the web – 85% of women stated they were “disappointed” in the way they were proposed to. Ay Carumba!

Something needs to be done to curb that statistic. Before the proposal pull the Groom aside and remind him know that you know the Bride very well and if he needs any help, he can give you a call. Then found out what the Bride wants – her dream ring and proposal. Chances are she has already thought about it. Offer to help. If he’s the proposal blimp over the ballgame kinda guy and she would hate it, don’t be afraid to tell him why you don’t think that would work. Offer up some suggestions.

Even as a woman who is not married, I have heard my share of proposal stories. Some were clear train wrecks from the start, and others were memorable. Reading this post, you probably know of a few yourself. If not, there are some a ton of proposal ideas floating around. From a ring waiting on the Christmas tree, or packaged in a successively smaller layer of boxes, to “will you marry me” written in the snow.

And this season when your friend becomes engaged, know that you did you part to make it magical and memorable. A job well done for Grooms and Bridesmaids everywhere.
