Engagement ring: One of the oldest Celtic traditions is to propose with the Claddagh ring. It
consists of 3 key elements: the crown for loyalty, the heart for love and the hands for friendship.
According to tradition, girls wear the ring on the right hand pointed outwards to mark their
engagement and pointed inwards when being married.

you could use “Would you like to hang your washing next to mine?” pronounced with a cute Irish
Personal touch: If you know what your spouse really likes i.e. a song, a celebrity, a place... Try to
incorporate it in your marriage proposal. You could sing her favourite song or perhaps write
your own song expressing your feelings. Consider making contact with a band she loves to sing
to her on this special day making a dream come true.
Caught proposal: Would like to show to your children later by keeping a record of this beautiful
memory? Immortalize it by hiring a photographer who can hide somewhere to capture your
proposal or just film it.
