Holiday proposals tend to be a New Years or Valentine's Day event – a symbol of loving devotion and a brand new chapter together. But why not celebrate the beginning of a life together with a bit more noise and excitement? There's plenty of romance in popping the question to the sound and dazzling glimmer of a hail of fireworks, after all. So when it comes time to propose, consider a holiday as unique and special as a vintage engagement ring.
The Fourth of July may be the nation's birthday, but it's also a romantic evening played the right way – a blanket, a bottle of wine, a quiet corner outside with a great view of the fireworks show. Or consider the Summer Solstice, when the sun has reached the very highest position in the sky. Even Labor Day could make an ideal day to propose, especially among friends and family. And you have a built-in long weekend for any engagement anniversary getaways come next year!
No matter how you ask, make it a memorable occasion. The summer is filled with fine weather, blue skies and clear warm nights full of stars. Get the ring, plan the day and make a wonderful memory.
