What is the request for a hand
A veces We can make a bit of trouble with the proposal for a hand and the moment of asking for marriage. It is true that each couple has some ideas and those are the ones they must carry out, because there is no longer a protocol like in the old days. Starting from this, it is true that asking for marriage is a specific moment when a part of the couple declares itself and makes that important proposal. But the request for a hand is another moment of celebration, of meeting with loved ones in which the request is celebrated. A long time ago it was a more complicated process, because it was the groom who used to ask the father of the bride for 'permission' to be able to marry. There the families had the last word. Today everything has changed for the better!
What is done in a proposal for a hand
It is already clear to us that it is a party, although smaller than the wedding. Just parents, siblings, or close family will be the one who comes to her. Therefore, you can always make a reservation at a nice restaurant or prepare a home party that the guests will also appreciate. It is a meeting and it should not be close to the wedding itself, more than anything to give us time to organize one and the other without problem. When you have the place, you can decorate it in a simple and romantic way, with flowers and vases for the occasion. In the same way, you can choose a somewhat different menu, always attending to the needs of each diner. In addition to lunch or dinner, there is also gift exchange between the couple.
What to give to the couple
We already know that at the time of the marriage request the ring is who is present. Therefore, for this moment we can leave other options. For example, for him it may be a classic watch or smartwatch, cufflinks, some kind of object that he collects, etc. While for her you can also choose jewelry in the form of bracelets, necklace or choker and even earrings. But maybe some accessory like a nice belt or even shoes can surprise you. You can skip all protocol and opt for an idea that surprises him or her!
How long in advance is it before the wedding?
Just before we mentioned that it was not very close to the wedding, in case you want to do something original and have a lot to plan. But roughly lor more advisable is that about 4 or 6 months pass from the request to the wedding. It is true that sometimes it is much more separate or quite the opposite. Because it will depend on each couple. Even many of them no longer opt for this point and although there is the marriage request they go directly to the wedding.
