Q&A | For the Groom[BACK TO ALL QUESTIONS & ANSWERS]
How do I hint what my ring should look like without being too obvious?
All Brides who are true romantics want it all, so it‚Äôs not surprising that you‚Äôd like everything to be perfect. Of course, just as each couple is unique, so is their approach to finding the right ring.
If you‚Äôre fairly certain that your guy is serious and likely to propose soon, take a casual stroll past jewellery shops and stop for a bit of window shopping. Mention what you love and what you really dislike, from the stone to the style of the ring. However, don‚Äôt be too overt – try to make the encounter seem spontaneous and almost accidental.
You may also wish to consider the recent trend for Grooms to pop the question with a temporary ring – something pretty that completes the special gesture. Once the Bride has said yes, she can design her own engagement ring, in her own time and by the Groom’s side.The other alternative is to ask a close friend to advise the Groom on your behalf. Naturally, you are not aware of anything!
