Breaking with Proposal Traditions
Leap Day (29th February) is traditionally the day women can propose, but at Walker & Hall, we're keen to bust that tradition and live in the 21st century. New Zealand women have never been ones to wait, mover and shaker, Kate Sheppard, and three female Prime Ministers have proven this.
So, what are the benefits of women proposing to their significant other? Here are just a few reasons to leap this year.
1. If you've been waiting for an age to get engaged, this is your chance to take matters into your own hands and make it happen!
2. You can start browsing for your perfect engagement ring now!
3. Ask your, 'what would Beyoncé do?' She'd take the bull by the horns, strut up to JayZ and tell him he's a fool not to marry her. Find your inner-Beyoncé confidence because confident women are very hard to resist.
4. 29th February is traditionally known as Bachelor's Day in Ireland when women initiate dances and propose marriage. If the proposal is refused by the man on this day, traditionally he's expected to buy her a silk gown. How about you flip this tradition on its head and buy yourself a new dress and propose!
5. Like the saying goes, 'if you want something done properly - do it yourself'.
