Some proposal traditions will never go out of style.

Although there are some proposal trends that change every few years, there are proposal traditions which will always be more than just the latest fad. There are many ways to have an trendy, new take on how to pop the question, but we have the details on how to incorporate “something old” to give her a traditional proposal.

Proposal traditions we still use today

  • On Bended Knee- This is one of the most common proposal traditions. We all know when a man gets down on one knee with a ring box in hand, he is about to pop the big question. This is a staple piece for engagements. Not every proposal is on bended knee, but this is a tradition which will be around for a long, long time.
  • Diamonds are Forever- This is also another common trait in proposal in our culture. Using a diamond ring to propose marriage dates back to the 1400’s, and ever since, every woman dreams of getting a beautiful diamond ring to seal the deal and to show it off for all to see. Since “diamonds are forever,” this trend won’t be changing anytime soon.
  • Asking for Permission- Before popping the question to their future fiancé, men have popped the question to her parents first by asking the parents for their daughter’s hand in marriage. Though this isn’t as common in our society today, it is still held customary to some future brides, so it’s important to keep this in mind before proposing.

If you know your love is all about keeping things traditional, you’ll want to pop the question to her using these proposal traditions. There is nothing more memorable than a proposal which brings together the old-school traditions which never fade and the new, exciting chapter the two of you are starting together!
