4. Who chooses the ring?
Historically, it was the man’s responsibility to choose the ring that he thought would best suit his lady. Many women also feel that after being together for a substantial amount of time, her man should “just know” what type of ring would be perfect for her. But let’s be serious, we’re talking about the same guy who chooses his outfit for the day by giving it the “sniff test.” Etiquette aside, I think it’s important for the bride-to-be to be happy with the ring she’s rocking since, after all, it will hopefully be on her finger for the rest of her life. There’s nothing wrong with helping your man out by throwing a few ideas his way like your ring size, the cut of diamond you prefer as well as the metal. But most of the time, you shouldn’t be present when he actually purchases it. The proposal should always be a total surprise and special in its own way.
