Organizing a korean proposal? We've got you
A typical Korean engagement proposal typically involves the man visiting the woman's family home to ask for her hand in marriage. The man is usually accompanied by his parents, and may also bring gifts such as traditional Korean engagement rings (jeon-gun) or other gifts for the woman's family.
During the visit, the man will formally ask for the woman's hand in marriage and the woman's family will give their blessing if they approve. This process is known as "Paebaek" or "Paebaek-rye" in Korean.
Some other traditional elements that may be included in a Korean engagement proposal are the man wearing traditional Korean clothing called "hanbok" and performing a deep bow as a sign of respect, and the couple may also perform traditional Korean rituals together to symbolize their union.
It is also common for the couple to exchange gifts such as rings or other jewelry, and for the man to give the woman a "seemong" necklace, which is a type of gold necklace that symbolizes the couple's commitment to each other.
Some couples may choose to propose in a more modern way, such as a surprise proposal in a romantic location or with a special gesture.
How to have a taste of Korea in Paris?
A Korean wedding proposal in Paris could incorporate traditional Korean elements into the proposal while also taking into account the romantic and iconic setting of Paris.
One way to do this would be to plan the proposal around a traditional Korean engagement ceremony, known as "Paebaek," and incorporating a Parisian location or theme.
What about a family trip to Paris, where the groom can formally ask for his love's hand in marriage while wearing traditional Korean clothing, and bringing gifts such as a traditional Korean engagement ring (jeon-gun) or other gifts for the woman's family.
After receiving the family's blessing, the couple could then take a romantic stroll around Paris, taking in iconic landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower or Notre-Dame Cathedral, perhaps from an iconic point of view to better capture the view?
The couple could also plan a romantic dinner at a Korean restaurant in Paris and exchange traditional engagement gifts, such as rings or a "seemong" necklace. A professional photographer could make these special moments last forever.
