An engagement proposal is a matter of preference. Some like it big and public while others love this special moment to be intimate. No matter what you prefer, popping the question is an event that requires some planning and organization.
Picking the perfect ring and determining what kind of proposal your significant other would like to have are only just the tip of the iceberg. If you really want to go big, create an elaborate plan and check out these tips to guide you on how to plan a one-of-a-kind proposal.
Determine Your Partner’s Style
Think about your significant other’s values and preferences. Plot the details of your special moment based on what would make her happy, rather than the things that you like to do.
Get your partner’s family and friends involved. Enlist the help of those who have known your girlfriend for a long time and have an idea of what her ideal proposal is. Not only you get insider tips about your partner but you also get to enlist their help throughout the process.
List your partner’s interests. Is she into flowers? Does she love sunset by the beach? Make a list of your partner’s favourite things and try incorporating them into your plan.
Consider her personality, as this could make your break your proposal. If she is a very private or shy type of person, you do not want to plan a grand event that would make this special event viral. For this, an intimate proposal, probably in a secluded, romantic destination would suffice. Take the time evaluating your partner’s values and lay out your plans according to these.
Make It Meaningful and Romantic
You don’t need to spend tons of money to pull off a successful engagement proposal. Inject some creativity into your plan by incorporating your story into your plan. Trust us, she’ll surely love it!
Consider your history. Pop the question in a way that honours your history as a couple. This means using a background song to which you had your first dance together, or proposing in your girlfriend’s childhood neighbourhood. Make sure to pick the details that are significant enough so she can remember it instantly.
Reenact her favourite movie scene. Do you know a particular movie scene that always makes her heart flutter? Replicate that scene and incorporate it into your proposal. For instance, if she’s a fan of P.S I Love You, you could write her a series of letters and ask her family and friends to give it to her one at a time. It does not have to be perfect, your girlfriend will appreciate the time and effort you put into each letter.
Propose on a vacation. One of the many things women love about their partner is your attention to details. Plan that Paris trip and take advantage of the magical setting to pop the question. There’s nothing more memorable than saying yes to your dream destination with the person you love!
Find the Perfect Ring
Now that you planned everything, it is time for you to find the ring. Before heading out ring shopping, consider the following tips below:
Save up. Choosing an engagement ring that will look great on her ring finger doesn’t mean it has to be the most expensive. Window shop ahead of time so you can determine how much you needed to save.
Do your own research. You can find a lot of engagement ring inspirations online. By doing your own research, you get a better idea of what kind of ring you’d want to propose with and how much it usually costs.
Hire a trusted jeweller. Find a local jeweller whom you can trust with this special purchase. You need someone who is more interested in helping you find that perfect ring than making a profit out of your purchase.
Drop to one knee. This may seem obvious and cliché, but this is necessary. Almost every woman imagines her partner to propose from one knee regardless if she is traditional or modern. The point is, it’s romantic!
Customise your ring. Personalize your engagement ring by adding accents that match your partner’s personality. You can do this by adding her birthstones or using a band size that complements your style.
