St Patrick’s Day is a great day to celebrate being lucky in love. It might be the perfect Holiday to propose if your love or yourself are from Irish descent. And if you’re planning to propose while at the pub, try not to indulge too much before popping the question especially this year. You’ll have plenty of time to celebrate once your partner says yes! Or, even better bring Ireland and a pub experience home so everyone can indulge and stay safe.
Pick a Claddagh Engagement Ring
The Claddagh ring is a traditional Irish ring with an utterly romantic design. Claddagh engagement rings feature two hands clasping a crowned heart with or without a center stone set in the heart. Claddagh rings can also be worn as friendship or family rings. Worn on the ring finger, they mean that the wearer is either married (heart pointing towards the wrist) or engaged (heart pointing towards the world). You can find some beautiful antics or customize one on Gemvara.com. Another great engagement ring option is to pick a style with green center stone such as an emerald or a green sapphire.
Produce A Lucky Proposal
Hunting for a four leaf clover might be a great way to start the day together, and a good excuse to take your love to a great location to pop the question. If you have a creative mind, you can choose to include a four leaf clover you made yourself. Check out this four leaf clover ring box you can purchase on Etsy. There is no better way to show your love how lucky you feel to have her in your life.
Create a Scavenger Hunt
You can organize a scavenger hunt or a literal rainbow-road (think Wizard of Oz, but bricks colored in chalk of all different colors) that leads her to a romantic, secluded spot with a ‘pot of gold’ at the end of it– you on one knee with the ring, of course!
Get Your Pet Involved
If you love to dress up your pet for every occasion, you probably already have the perfect doggy (or kitty?) outfit with green sparkles. Your lovely four pawed friend might only be willing to keep it on for so long, but you’ll have time to pop the question with his help before going to celebrate!
Recreate the Experience of an Irish Pub
Embrace the way of the Irish and order some Guinness and St Patrick’s Day decorations. The Guinness Webstore offers cool glassware and even a home bar experience. You can also purchase green dye to turn the beer green. Many vendors on Etsy can engrave glass with a special message. Whether you write it on her glass or just get down on one knee, this proposal won’t only come with a ring– but a well deserved beer to celebrate your engagement!
