How to Create a Perfect Proposal
Your marriage proposal is an important event, and you want to ensure it’s memorable and unique. However, it’s also incredibly personal to you and your partner, which makes it difficult to plan with others' input.
While no one can create the perfect marriage proposal for you, there are a few guidelines you can follow. Use these tips to create a personalized, memorable proposal that will pave the way for years of happy marriage.
Choose a Sentimental Spot
First, you need to choose a location for your proposal. Ideally, this would be a sentimental spot that evokes happy memories for you and your spouse-to-be.
Think back over your time together. Are there any idyllic locations where you shared a romantic moment together? It doesn’t have to be an exotic or exciting spot. Even the local coffee shop can be romantic if it means something special for you and your partner.
Hide the Photographer
While many people love having photos to commemorate their engagement, a photographer might also ruin the ambience. If possible, hire a professional photographer (or a friend with skill) and ask them to remain hidden throughout the proposal.
You can scope out the location in advance and find the perfect hiding spot that still offers an unobstructed view. A few days after the proposal, you can surprise your betrothed with the shots and relive the experience together.
Practice Your Speech
A proposal doesn’t have to be long or elaborate, but you should definitely practice your speech before the big day. It will help relieve any jitters and make you feel more prepared for the occasion.
While most people are a little nervous about proposing, it’s important that you enjoy the event too. Practice helps you be more “in the moment” when that time finally comes.
Focus on the Ring
Your engagement ring is usually the highlight of the proposal. Most people say “the bigger, the better,” but that’s not always true.
While many people prefer a large, flashy diamond engagement ring, others are more attracted to unique settings or smaller diamond clusters.
It’s most important that you choose a ring that suits your partner. Consider their preferences and ask for input if possible.
Make It Personal
However you choose to propose, it’s most important to focus on your soon-to-be spouse. Think about the things they like. What would be most special? Would they prefer to have an audience of friends and loved ones, or is a private proposal more suitable? Do they want to be part of the decision-making, or would they rather be surprised with both the proposal and the ring?
These are all difficult decisions to make alone, but you know your partner better than anyone else. Ultimately, your engagement should be about the two of you and the love you share together.
