People who love fall aren’t at all ambivalent about their feelings about the season. I’m speaking from experience when I say that, too, because I myself am a fall fanatic - and I’m not shy about it. My now husband (and high school sweetheart) actually proposed on the first day of fall back in 2012, and we got married two years later, on the first Saturday in Fall 2014. I, 100 percent, live for all things fall and my guy took that fact and ran with it when it came to our engagement and planning for our wedding. So, I completely understand and am here for all the brides and grooms looking at this upcoming fall as the perfect time to put a ring on it. We caught up with ever&ever®, the brand that creates the most incredible customizable wedding rings to fulfill every couple’s wildest dreams, and together we brainstormed a number of ways to make a fall engagement even more special: starting, of course, with the ring.
everything that sets the stage for your fall engagement
Winter, spring, and summer are still amazing seasons to say ‘YES’ - truly, engagements can happen any time of year - but some of fall’s built-in features just make it a stunning setting to kick off what’s to come with your wedding.
The lull between seasons.
Between summer’s end and the beginning of the holiday season, there’s a lot to mourn (the end of endless summer sun and the swift snap back to reality to interrupt what’s been mostly carefree living for 3-4 months, etc.) and not too much to anticipate and get excited over. An engagement, though, can completely change the game and put you back on Cloud 9.
Is just unbelievable, making indoor and outdoor proposals equally enchanting.
The scenes and the props that pop.
Pumpkin patches, wagon rides, coffee mugs, and park strides - autumn has it all to fall head over heels over.
The natural ambiance that glows on film.
You know when people talk about the ‘golden’ hour of wedding photography - the last hour before sunset and the first hour after sunrise? Well, the entirety of the fall season is golden hour, meaning that if you choose to do your engagement photos soon after your proposal, they will be 👌
Moody jewel tones, ethereal cinnamon sugar and honey hues, bold burgundy and blue pairings, covetable copper and sage shades - fall’s palettes are pure magic. And they can only be made better by a beautiful, shining gemstone. On that finger.
Which brings us to your ring
Engagement rings are evergreen, baby! But if you’d like your ring to sing for the fall season - here’s how to do it with ever&ever®.
Wedding rings symbolize love, commitment, and a couple’s bright future as one. So, talented, passionate designers carefully curate each original ever&ever® design and then turn the creative process over to you, the ones joining your lives together. Each engagement piece is customized with your preferred stone shape, size, and metal quality - for a unique vision, every time.
For your fall engagement, here are some tweaks that can be especially festive:
With ever&ever®, the capabilities you have to customize a seasonal match are unmatched
Go with rose gold or a two-tone look
Inspired by the kaleidoscopic fall foliage.
Choose a setting featuring accent stones
Sparkle reminiscent of the Zodiac constellations best observed in autumn’s night sky
Opt for a trilogy ring
That celebrates the love you’ve shared, the love you share now, and the love you’ll continue to grow for one another over the years (Thanksgiving goals #pastpresentfuture)
If you’re the one popping the question
Present the ring in a rich peacock blue velvet ring box. The contrast will be 🔥
If you’re the one saying ‘YES’
Start filling your cart with on-trend fall styles and make sure your manicure is on-point (shades of smoky blush or lavender, moody blue, oxblood or scarlet red work oh-so-well).
Autumn is also a time to take stock in our lives and start making better choices for the turn of the new year and beyond, which is another reason why we love ever&ever®. Each ever&ever® piece is made with the commitment to social and environmental responsibility by using SCS-certified 100% recycled precious metals. Stone selections include choice of conflict-free natural diamonds or lab-grown diamonds. Expert craftsmanship and high-quality materials combine to create an heirloom that will last a lifetime.
If you’re already engaged, then think about using the fall season to get your wedding rings ready for nuptials next year (we happen to know a rose gold hammered ring that would be perfect for this time of year… just sayin!). Either way, shop ever&ever® now!
