Gents, we have a feeling some of you may need this post. You’ve been thinking about proposing to your amazing girlfriend for some time now, but for whatever reason… You just haven’t. You’re stuck. You want to do it perfectly, but let’s face it: You need our help. Read on, and you will find that Bailey, Banks and Biddle has all the proposal answers you are looking for.

Asking for Permission
Admit it. The thought of asking for her parents’ permission to marry their daughter makes you shake in your boots. She’s Daddy’s Little Girl, and while you’ve always seemed to get along with them, you still fear that her parents will say “no.”

The best way to guarantee a “yes” followed by a handshake and a hug is to be yourself. Don’t be afraid to shed a tear while professing the love you feel for their daughter, and certainly tell her parents how you will do whatever it takes to make her happy. No, we don’t expect or want you to become a criminal for her, however her parents should believe you would be willing to.

The Ring

Hopefully by now you recognize your love’s style preferences and know whether she’s a Yellow Gold, White Gold or Platinum girl. Clueless? Take a peek in her jewelry box. If all her earrings are Yellow Gold, you know a bit more than you did five seconds before. If the design of her ring still intimidates you, feel free to bring her jewelry box in to Bailey Banks and Biddle and we will be happy to help you pick out a ring that will work well with her current jewelry. Or, you can always surrender yourself to a weekend full of shows and movies on the women’s television network, during which the two of you will inevitably see several dozen jewelry store commercials and you can attempt to pick up clues as to which ring she is eyeing.

The Proposal

Despite whether or a not a woman likes surprises, it’s hard to believe that any girl or woman doesn’t dream of her surprise marriage proposal from her Prince Charming. Whether you propose during an out-of-town vacation getaway, or a romantic weekend at home, do your best to make sure you sweep her off her feet with romance and heartfelt sentiments. Your grandchildren will be hearing about how you proposed someday, as will all her friends and family on Facebook within ½ hour, so make sure your proposal is romantic and heartfelt.

Bailey Banks and Biddle will be here after she says “Yes!” to help the two of you find your perfect wedding bands. In the meantime, you are always welcome to contact us with any questions or concerns during your engagement ring purchasing process.
