Deciding to propose to your other half is one of the most nerve-wracking and exciting things in the world. Declaring your love by getting down on one knee with the perfect ring is the ultimate act of love and commitment. But how can you plan that perfect proposal?
Select a sentimental location
The first thing to consider when planning to pop the question is where you’ll do it. You could pick the restaurant you had your first date, where you first kissed or where you both finally said ‘I Love You’.
Pick The Perfect Ring
The ring you choose will be worn by your intended for the rest of her life, so make it a good one. Shop around on sites such as 77 Diamonds to find the right style, size and cut to suit your loved one.
Hire a professional photographer
Having a photography nearby as you pop the question is an amazing way of capturing the moment and having that lasting memory for the rest of your lives. Professional photographers will be able to position themselves in the perfect spot to capture the light and the look on her face as you surprise her.
Most couples have that one song which means something to them. Make the most of it by using the song and playing it in the background as you get down on one knee.
Get symbolic with the flowers
Do you remember the first bouquet of flowers you ever bought for your beloved? Why not try to recreate that bouquet and present it to her when you ask her to marry you. She will immediately understand the significance of the flowers and make the night even more unforgettable.
Make A Day Of It
Your new fiancée will want to flaunt the new jewel on her finger after you’ve popped the question, so try and make your proposal during the daytime so she has hours of showing the ring off on the day. It will also stop you from being nervous all day to ask the question.
Speak from the heart
You don’t have to be a wizard with words, as long you what you say comes from the heart and you make it clear exactly how you feel. A declaration of your love, commitment, and dedication to your other half will make the proposal so much more special and she will remember it forever.
It doesn’t matter what other fancy things you’ve planned, if you get down on one knee, look into her eyes and say what you really feel, it will be the perfect proposal no matter where you are. Remember, becoming engaged is about love, and love cannot be bought. If you can’t afford the fancy restaurant or beautiful location to ask for her hand, make the most of what you have available and just enjoy the moment. You are in love, and that’s what matters in the end. Propose how you feel is right, and you won’t be disappointed.
