If you are like 40% of millennial couples, you are likely to be planning your engagement sometime between now and February 14.  But getting engaged doesn’t have to be the stressful event that you might be thinking, especially if you start planning now!  You might even get engaged on Valentine’s Day!

Remember, the most important part of the engagement is not the where, not the how, but rather the why.  She is saying “yes” to spending the rest of her life with YOU her perfect partner in crime.  But because you are the perfect partner, you want everything to be special for your soon to be fiancé.  Let’s get started!


The engagement ring is probably the most important part of getting engaged on Valentine’s Day because not only is it a unique expression of your love, but it is also the most important first purchase of your relationship. Remember, she is going to be wearing the engagement ring for a long time to come, so you want to make sure that it is perfect for her.

How can you find out what she likes without totally blowing the surprise?  She might have already shown you rings she likes (her way of dropping hints) but maybe not!  Here are some sneaky ways to find out how to get her the perfect engagement ring:

  1. Pay attention to her current rings.  Are the stones round or square shaped?  Perhaps they are oval, or some other shape.
  2. Is her taste simple or elaborate?
  3. Involve a discreet family member or friend. Girls talk – especially if they hope to be engaged soon.  Have one of her friends or sisters ask her about her dream ring.  You’ll be surprised how much detail they will be able to uncover.
  4. Ask her to go window shopping with you…in case one day you’ll be ready to pop the question.
