What is said at an engagement

What should an engagement look like? Regardless of whether they will be traditional or more modern, there should be one fundamental question: “Will you become my wife?” (or husband of course, although this option is still rare).

What flowers for engagement?

How should engagement look like? Flowers are a customary part of an engagement. There is no rule about them, although the most common ones chosen by men are bouquets of red roses. This is because red is a sign of passionate and sincere love. A bouquet composed just of red roses, therefore speaks for itself and words seem to be redundant.

How many roses for engagement? Does the number have symbolic meaning?

Although engagement traditions have changed over the years, presenting a bouquet of e.g. red roses still hasn’t gone out of fashion and is an indispensable element of this event. Although there is no strict rule on how many roses should be in a bouquet, according to the floral tradition 108 red roses mean “Marry me”. Whereas, 21 roses say “I am totally yours” and 12 roses say “Be mine forever”.

Engagement at home or engagement on the beach will be better?

Engagement ideas are an endless list of possibilities. It’s hard to say unequivocally which is better. It all depends on taste and preference. Some are traditionalists and want to propose among the closest people, others dream of a unique place. An engagement at home, can be just as magical as a proposal on the seashore.

Do you still arrange to propose in front of your parents? A little about traditions

Ideas for engagement at home, can be preceded by a proposal among the family. This is an old tradition that is passed down from generation to generation by our parents. Although it is slowly disappearing, there are couples who continue it. A proposal is a request from the boyfriend to the father of the future bride for permission to marry her. Once approval is granted, the official engagement follows, which is the application of an engagement ring.
