While New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day may be more traditional holidays in which to propose marriage, Thanksgiving should be high up on that list as well. The holiday inspires people to think more deeply about their life and loved ones, and to openly express gratitude for the many blessings they enjoy. What greater blessing is to find a soul mate and be fortunate enough to embark on a lifetime of love together? This article will offer several fun and memorable ways to pop that question on Thanksgiving Day.
Slip the Ring in the Turkey.
This creative and memorable way to propose should certainly be attempted with a certain amount of finesse. After all, you certainly don’t want your bride to accidentally carve into the ring, or have someone else wind up with it in their portion of turkey dinner. If you can slip into the kitchen and place the ring on a small square of plastic wrap to keep it from coming in direct contact with the meat, place the ring in a spot where she will see it before setting the turkey out on the table. She will surely be so surprised and will love getting engaged while the family is gathered together to enjoy the holiday.
Propose to Her at a Thanksgiving Parade.
Many people love attending the local Turkey Day parade in their town. If you and your intended plan on taking in the fun of a holiday parade this Thanksgiving, consider keeping the ring under wraps until mid way through the festivities. When the time feels just right, bend down on one knee and present her with your token of love and commitment. Your bride will surely always remember this special moment and take great pleasure in recounting the story of how you two started your life together to friends and family.
Pop the Question After the Holiday Dinner.
If you both are gathered with loved ones to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner, you may wish to ask for her hand in marriage in between dinner and dessert. The symbolic gesture of asking her to be your wife on the day of the year in which you are supposed to be most aware of the blessings of life will surely not be lost on her. You will also gain the admiration and respect of your future in laws by choosing such a family oriented setting in which to propose.
Surprise Her First Thing in the Morning.
A wonderful wayy to start the Thanksgiving holiday and give her a reason to have some spring in her step while preparing the holiday dinner is to give her the ring as soon as she wakes up in the morning. The few minutes of quiet time while sipping her morning coffee will surely be one of the most peaceful time of the busy day. Make the most of those few quiet moments you have together and let her know how much she means to you before presenting the engagement ring to her. The rest of the day will definitely be filled with joy and excitement as your wonderful news becomes intermingled with the warm cozy feeling of the holiday.
