Proposing can be one of the most unforgettable moments. Make it a moment that she’ll never forget but think first is this a person that you really want to spend the rest of your life with? If so, read on.
- Don’t worry if she says “No” or “I’ll have to think about it” – this is a big step.
- Evenings are a very romantic time for proposals but they’re not essential, and for many people, a daytime proposal in a beautiful setting is just as romantic.
- Originality is awesome, but don’t go overboard.
- If you are really clueless, ask her friends or family.
- Have her pick out 3-5 rings that she would really like as an engagement ring. Every jewelry store said this was a good idea because even if she likes every aspect of the ring, she may still not care for how it is put together.
- If possible, set up a video camera or ask someone to take pictures. These will be great to show to family members and friends.
- “Down on one knee” originally started as pose for gentlemen to show their ultimate respect for their bride to be, which is rather sweet!
- When proposing don’t be nervous and say the wrong things (although it’s normal), Maybe record what you will say and sleep somewhere where only you can hear the recorded plan and play it and practice it so you won’t make a mistake.
- Talk to her about it. If you really think that you can be together for the next 50 years, you can talk about things like marriage. Make sure that she wants to marry you.
- Consider hiring a pro. Some businesses specialize in personalized, creative will-you-marry-me events and offer services to help take the pressure off when you pop the question.
