The best proposals are sentimental and personal. You need to think about your relationship so far and the memories you have shared. You can use these special moments as inspiration for your proposal set-up.
Just make sure to consider your partner and what they would like from a proposal. A public proposal in a restaurant might be their worst nightmare. They might prefer a surprise proposal in bed on Sunday morning or on your evening dog walk. It doesn’t have to be fancy and expensive – just personal.
Here are a few things to bear in mind when planning your proposal.
Take note of what they say
You have probably been with your partner for a few years if you are considering marriage. In all those years together, they may have commented on other people’s proposals. Make a note of what they say so you can remember when it’s your turn to get down on one knee. For example, they may comment on a movie proposal and say they don’t want to get engaged at Christmas. You can get a better idea of what they want and avoid any scenarios they would hate.
Chose a significant time
The timing of the proposal is one of the most important parts. You could time it around a significant event, like your anniversary or Valentine’s Day. The right timing can make the proposal extra special and romantic.
Pick the right ring
Your partner will wear this ring forever, hopefully. Choose an engagement ring that reflects their personality, style, and relationship with you. For example, you could opt for a gemstone ring that represents your star signs. Or, you could opt for a classic diamond ring with a silver band and a personalised engraved message. Some couples like to pick the ring together after the proposal so they can collaborate on the design.
Cater it to them
Engagement trends come and go. You might be drawn to popular ring ideas on Instagram that seem to be getting a lot of attention. Try to veer away from trends and social media pictures when planning the proposal. You need to focus on your relationship and what your partner would like. You don’t need to set up a professional photographer to capture the moment or think about the location’s Instagram ability.
