There are a few events in your life where you remember exactly what you’re wearing. The day you propose to your future spouse is one of them. The excitement and the nervousness all rolled into one cumulative moment is something you never forget. And your outfit will be apart of the ever-told proposal story. So, what should you wear for one of the most important days of your life? Well, it depends on the proposal, but we have a few ideas!
The Traditional Together Proposal
If you’re hoping for a private, just the two of you type of event, what better time than this to spring for the tuxedo! If you’re unsure what color to go with, remember that black is always a great option. For a softer look, go for the charcoal grey. Charcoal is every bit as elegant as black, without being as stark. The best part of already owning a tuxedo is you already have your wedding attire! If you choose to wear a tie during the proposal, maybe go for a bow tie for the ceremony for some variety.
The Five-Star Restaurant Proposal
Long before the maître d’ brings an engagement ring backed into a cake, your future bride will see what you’re wearing. For 95% of these restaurants, a black suit will make it a bit obvious that this is more than just a nice dinner. We suggest you stick with a nice navy suit, or a nice solid grey. These choices show that you’ve put a lot of thought and effort into what you’ll look like. And if you can think about it, try to use her favorite color as a little pop in your tie, or accented in your shirt.
The Beach Vacation Proposal
You’re at the beach, taking in the sand and sun and loving every minute of it. You’re probably thinking how there couldn’t be a worse time you wear a suit, but you would be (mostly) wrong! We would agree that a full suit might be a little overkill, but a great pair of slacks or dark-wash denim jeans with a light colored sport jacket show that you’re conscious of the setting, but still want to look polished. Just remember, relaxed does not mean wrinkled. Spring to have your clothes pressed when you get to your resort. That extra touch will be worth it when you see the pictures.
The Scavenger Hunt Proposal
The one thing you need to remember about this proposal is to be comfortable. If you’re traveling with your future fiance, stay away from the slim fit styles. Keep it tailored, yet relaxed. If you’re meeting at the end make it modern and make it different. You’ve already proved that you can be unique and memorable. Make a statement with a great burgundy wool suit. Not only will your fiance be thrilled with all the hard work you put in for the proposal, but she’ll love your new, confident look.
