The proposal. It makes you a bit nervous just thinking about it. You have the ring you know she’ll love, but do you know where you’ll do it? What’s the ideal setting? When’s the right time? What will you say? Should you get down on one knee or is that only in the movies? Ok, now take a deep breath in. Let’s start from the beginning. You have the ring she’ll love. And, with a little help from us and some planning ahead, you’ll have the perfect setting too. Just follow the steps we’ve outlined below and she’ll definitely say “Yes!”
First, you need to decide if you’re going to propose to her on a special day or on a regular Thursday, for example. Is it going to be on the day you met for the first time? On your anniversary? On Christmas? Whatever it is, just make sure to have some alone time afterwards. If it’s a special day, it’ll definitely be easier to remember than a random day. On the other hand, it may not be such a surprise if you propose on Valentine’s Day.
Since proposals are very personal, you should pick a meaningful spot with a romantic atmosphere. The more beautiful the place is, the better. You’ll both remember it forever. Will you take her to the restaurant where you had your first date? Will you ask her on a sunny beach during your vacation? In a colorful botanical garden you both like? It’s up to you to make it special.
You can never go wrong with getting down on one knee, looking her into the eyes and asking her to marry you. It’s a classic for a reason. But you should think about what you’ll say. How special she is to you, how much you love her and how happy you’d be to spend the rest of your life with her are all great options. Keep in mind that you’ll both be telling this story countless times for the rest of your lives, so make it memorable.
We recommend asking someone in advance to take pictures or record the moment for you, so you can immortalize it forever. A proposal is one of the most exciting things to happen in your life, so you want to remember it as clearly as possible. You can show the photos or video at your wedding and you’ll never forget the moment she said a resounding “Yes!”
