To help prepare these future grooms (or brides!) to put a ring on it, WeddingChannel.com (www.weddingchannel.com), the number one wedding and gift registry website, today launched a Proposal Guide (www.weddingchannel.com/proposal).
The must-have guide for getting engaged, the WeddingChannel.com Proposal Guide features all the insider tips on popping the question and the ultimate engagement primer to help spread the news. Brides will also have the opportunity to weigh in on how the etiquette of modern-day proposal dos and don'ts has changed.
