An Engaging Valentine

For those who want to make their Valentine’s day one to remember by proposing to their beloved, then please read the following.

It also helps if you: a.) want your relationship to be about your Irish background, b.) want it to be romantic and c.) want to pick something extra special and one of a kind. You probably already know that you need the proper tools to pull it off. (but which tools?) If you are nodding your head because you realize this is you, then get ready!

What makes a proposal fit all of the above points? Well, first off you need a good ring that describes what you intend to focus on. You will need something with a classic Irish or Celtic symbol.

This ring below is perfect! It is our three white gemstones ring with both a white and yellow 14k gold band. It’s three gemstones in the center of the ring offer brilliance and on either side of them two trinity knots. The trinity knots describe things that are endless and everlasting. It is a wonderful Celtic symbol which will display to your beloved what the relationship means to her and yourself.

For a romantic twist, try using a poem at your big day.

Without taking the poem literally, it describes a love that can never be lost. It mentions death as if one part of the couple has passed away. This may not be too promising since you do not want this to really happen. However, if you consider the poem is one that tells of an everlasting love through any event or hardship, it might just be wonderful for your union. Many people these days appreciate the thought that no matter what the circumstances, their love will continue on, even after death and future lives.

Perhaps, that is what you can say to her.

“She moved through the fair”

 

My young love said to me,
My mother won’t mind
And my father won’t slight you
For your lack of kine.
And she laid her hand on me
And this she did say:
It will not be long, Love,
Till our wedding day.

As she stepped away from me
And she moved through the fair
And fondly I watched her
Move here and move there.
And then she made her way homeward,
With one star awake,
As the swan in the evening
Moved over the lake.

The people were saying,
No two e’er were wed
But one had a sorrow
That never was said.
And I smiled as she passed
With her goods and her gear,
And that was the last
That I saw of my dear.

Last night she came to me,
My dead love came in.
So softly she came
That her feet made no din.
As she laid her hand on me,
And this she did say:
It will not be long, love,
‘Til our wedding day.
