The Perfect Proposal
How to Plan a Perfect Marriage Proposal in 5 Easy Steps
When you’re planning to pop the question, it is, of course, incredibly exciting, but it’s also nerve-wracking, and often overwhelming. This is because there is so much more to planning the marriage proposal than simply asking “Will you marry me?”; You also have to find the perfect ring, choose the perfect location, and invite the perfect people to make the marriage proposal even more special. If you want to get your engagement just right, here is a simple step-by-step guide to help you along.
1. Make it Personal
The whole idea of a proposal is that it involves things that you know your significant other loves. For example, if your partner loves music, you could take them to see their favourite artist and propose to them there. The perfect proposal doesn’t even have to be particularly grand or extravagant to be perfect.
You could just cook them their favourite meal and fill the house with their favourite flowers. As long as you incorporate little personal details and avoid things they outright hate, you should be fine.
2. Consider Asking Permission
This is a step that is incredibly personal and requires a great deal of thought. Some people are very traditional, and others honestly couldn’t care less, and it’s up to you to figure out which one your partner is. If you think asking permission before performing the marriage proposal is a good idea, then the father is your usual bet, but some people go to the mother, a sibling, or even a best friend instead. It all depends on the person and the situation.
3. Buy the Ring
Asking for permission creates an inside man who can ask your partner questions on the type of ring they like, as well as their ring size. This means that, when you’re looking at engagement rings by 77 Diamonds, you aren’t left scratching your head. If you’re still worried about choosing wrong, you could propose without a ring, and let your partner pick one themselves at a later date. Just make sure that this is something they would be happy with.
4. Pick the Location
Where you propose has the power to make or break a proposal, so make sure that you choose wisely. If there’s anywhere that you can think of that has particular significance to your relationship, such as the coffee shop where you first met or the restaurant you had your first date, consider this location as your proposal setting. If you’re planning to propose outside, have a backup plan in case it starts raining.
5. Share it with Others
Getting engaged is a huge milestone, and it’s understandable that you and your partner would want to share this moment with those you love, so consider inviting a few friends and family along with you. Of course, you have to make sure that these family members can either keep the secret quiet or don’t know what’s going on, or your future spouse could find out what’s going to happen before you can get down on one knee.
Creating the perfect proposal is always going to be stressful, but hopefully, the tips above make it a little easier. Tell me about your own proposal. How did it go?
