You’re likely reading this because you want to propose to your significant other soon. It’s an important event in your life, and you want to make sure that all goes according to plan. The last thing you want is for something to spoil the surprise or ruin the moment.
Scouring the Internet for help has given you a bit of inspiration. But, you’re still not entirely sure how to pull off the perfect engagement. Thankfully, you’ve come to the right place because the following proposal tips and tricks will help you with your journey:
Put some thought into the venue
You’ve probably heard some proposal stories ranging from the romantic to the downright ridiculous. When it comes to proposing to a special someone, it makes perfect sense to put a lot of thought into the venue.
For example, getting down on bended knee in the middle of McDonald’s during the lunch hour rush might not be the best of ideas. However, thinking about a more romantic setting where you can make the event memorable for the right reasons is a better bet.
Is there a special place where you both like to frequent? Perhaps you could propose at the location of your first date or some other area with a symbolic meaning for both of you? Maybe you could hire a proposal photographer to capture your special moment?
Choose the perfect engagement ring
Another thing you need to put serious consideration into is the engagement ring. As you know, there’s an almost limitless choice of engagement rings online and locally from jewelry stores. How do you know which one is the perfect one to buy?
You can start by thinking about the things your significant other likes in their life. For example, if they’re passionate about a particular hobby or animal, you could get a custom engagement ring made that is symbolic to them in that way.
Another thing you’ll need to do is figure out what size ring to buy. Of course, you need to do so without arousing your partner’s suspicion – unless you’re planning to choose one together?
One way to do that is by asking to measure their finger because you want to buy your mom or grandma a ring, and you think they have the same size fingers. Another idea might be to covertly measure the size of a ring they wear on that finger on their other hand.
Be sure they will say yes
Finally, proposing to someone is a big deal, and you don’t want to go to all that effort only for your other half to say “no” and leave you feeling rejected, embarrassed, and sad. That’s why you need to virtually guarantee that they will say yes to you.
One thing you should never do is propose to someone in the hopes that the engagement will fix something in the relationship. You should only ask for a person’s hand in marriage if you’re both very happy together and want to spend the rest of your lives together.
Talk to your significant other and find out whether you’re both 100% on the same page when it comes to life goals and views on marriage.
Thank you for reading . I hope this has helped you with your engagement.
