Before the wedding planning begins, comes the engagement. Proposals take planning, too. Rings, where to ask, and did you remember the tissues? A little pre-planning will keep you calm and create beautiful memories.
American Gem Society (AGS), the country’s preeminent jewelry trade organization dedicated to consumer protection, launches the AGS Perfect Proposal Toolkit – just in time to help those planning to pop the question on Valentine’s Day. The Toolkit, available February 1-15, 2013, offers a quirky collection of tips and suggestions for planning the perfect proposal, as well as a contest to win a trip to the newlywed capital of the world, Las Vegas.
Located at americangemsociety.org/Groom2B, the online resource offers fun and unique suggestions for traditional and non-traditional proposals, recipes for romantic dinners, a list of the top mistakes to avoid when proposing, proposal trends, and even recommendations on Tweets for those who plan to propose in 140 characters or less.
The hotline, 1-855-GROOM2B (476-6622), provides recorded recommendations including tips on planning the proposal, how to select a quality diamond and what to do if things don’t go as planned.
Through a partnership with Vegas.com, The Official VEGAS Travel Site™, the Perfect Proposal Contest (www.vegas.com/perfectproposal) gives entrants the opportunity to win a three-day/two night trip to Las Vegas (airfare, hotel, show tickets and dinner,) along with a $1,000 gift certificate, valid at any of the 1,700 AGS member jewelers in the country. Ideal for those who want to get married, or, spend a weekend honeymoon in Las Vegas. Full contest rules are listed on the contest website.
“Our existing online resources provide recommendations on how to shop for the highest quality jewelry from the best jewelers in the country,” said Ruth Batson, executive director and CEO of American Gem Society. “The AGS Perfect Proposal Toolkit is a perfect fit with what our visitors look for, especially around Valentine’s Day—the busiest time of year for ring shopping and question popping!”
