When you love someone and want to spend the rest of your life with them the next step in your relationship has to be a marriage proposal. Traditionally, it would have been the man that got down on one knee but nowadays, both men and women pop the question. If you’ve found that special someone and want to make your proposal one of the most exciting and memorable moments your partner will ever have here are some essential tips to help you.
Choose the Right Location
The best location for your proposal is somewhere that means something to you both. Why not choose the place where you had your first date or another unique location? There’s nothing wrong with doing it in your own home, but don’t forget to put in some effort and set the scene rather than proposing over the dinner table. It’s possible to make your home feel special with some candles and flowers.
Have a Sentimental Speech Prepared
Nailing your marriage proposal requires more than just saying “Will you marry me?” Don’t let your nerves get the better of you and write a few things down that you want to say. It’s always good to prepare what you’re going to say when you get down on one knee well ahead of time. You need to tell them what you love about them, what they mean to you and why you want to spend the rest of your life together.
Every relationship is unique, and every proposal should be unique too. There are some great ways you can show your creativity and make your proposal beautiful. It doesn’t have to be something too fancy. A picnic somewhere special for just the two of you with sandwiches you’ve prepared, fruit, chocolate and a chilled bottle of champagne is certain to surprise your partner.
Find the Perfect Ring
Is there such a thing as the perfect ring? To start with the ring has to be the right size. If you can sneak out a ring that they already own, you’ll be able to find out the right size to get. It also needs to be a ring that suits your partner’s style, preference, and lifestyle. If you want something unique and beautiful, you should consider a moissanite engagement ring. Scientists have recently discovered a way to re-create this rare material, and its beauty is breath-taking.
Document the Moment
Your wedding proposal is something that’s going to happen in the blink of an eye. Before you know it, you’ll be on your way home with a smile on your face and only memories to remember the moment by. Find a professional photographer to capture the moment for you, and you’ll be able to experience it over and over again.
Make it a Surprise
There aren’t very many people who don’t like surprises, but you have to be careful it’s the kind of surprise your partner is going to appreciate. A shy and private person isn’t going to welcome public displays of your affection and would probably prefer a proposal somewhere private. An outgoing person, on the other hand, would love a proposal that involves friends and family members. It’s down to you to decide which direction to take.
However you decide to do your marriage proposal, make sure it comes from your heart. Your love should shine through every aspect of this significant occasion.
