August Is a Great Month to Get Engaged: What You Need to Know

It’s true, February is synonymous with love and engagements and just before that, November through Valentine’s Day, is proposal season. But August isn’t a bad time to get that ring on your finger - in fact, National Romance Awareness Month is kind of the BEST time to make that decision with the one you’ve dreamed about marrying from day one. It’s a month when you can spend time investing in your relationship and doing things that foster and enrich your bond for the future. For those feeling ready and confident about taking the next step as soulmates, getting engaged is an amazing way to celebrate August and fall even deeper in love. Thankfully, Blue Nile is in the midst of its 22nd anniversary sale. So, if you’ve been looking for just one more reason to make this month the one (for you two), then here it is.

Is an anniversary sale just for anniversary jewelry?

Nope, not at all. Anniversary is just a cooler way to reference the brand’s birthday, but since it’s a name in an industry so versed in vows and eternal love, it’s fitting to use anniversary in such a context. After all, it means they’ve been committed and loyal to their customers for another year - 22, to be exact, in Blue Nile’s case!!

Anniversary sales are something we all look forward to (I try to shop at least a handful of anniversay sales each year!), but when you’re in the market to make a big purchase - like an engagement ring - the savings can be even more serious; definitely not something you’d want to miss out on!

Just a few proposal stories to get you #inspired

Whether romance is your love language or not quite your first instinct ...

“We managed to fit in a romantic getaway in the mountains of North Carolina. However, COVID-19 disrupted many of our plans for that trip. With so many places shut down, there wasn’t much to do. Thankfully, there were plenty of scenic trails and nature walks we could explore.

One day, we took a car ride up a mountain and Bryce stopped at a lookout. It was breathtaking and we were all alone with nature. Bryce caught me off guard in the best way when he proposed at the scenic lookout!

Even if we weren’t in the middle of a pandemic, I couldn’t have asked for a better setting or a more perfect engagement ring. My fiancé picked out the ideal ring on his own, and I couldn’t be happier with our engagement story.” ~ Cody & Bryce

"COVID-19 didn’t affect my marriage proposal, but it did delay our wedding. I’m fortunate that my proposal went off without a hitch.

We took a vacation at a resort in Florida, and I decorated the balcony while she changed her clothes. I presented the ring in a heart-shaped box under the light of the moon. The next day we celebrated with a couples’ massage followed by an engagement photoshoot on the beach.

Our original wedding date was April 4th, but we had to postpone when COVID-19 hit. Originally, we postponed to July only to learn that would not work. We refuse to let this pandemic rain on our parade, and we look forward to our new wedding date in October." ~ Mayra & William
