Have you found the love of your life and you are planning to propose? However, you’re aware that you will need to shop for a wedding ring, memorize a speech… the list goes on. We made it easier for you and listed some tips to ensure your marriage proposal goes as smoothly as possible. 

Strategy is the key

Start with making a strategy before you do anything else. Carry a little notebook for a few weeks with you or use an app on your phone to take notes. The days leading up to your proposal, write down any random idea, story or feeling that comes to mind. 

Another technique you can use is brainstorming. One day you sit down for about 15 to 30 minutes to write down your feelings towards your loved one. Don’t know where to start your brainstorming session? These few questions might help you to find some new creative ideas.

  • When did you realize you were in love with this person? 
  • When you first met, how did you feel?
  • What distinguishes your connection from others? 
    • Which of your man’s qualities do you like the most? 
    • When you think about your marriage, what are you most excited about? 
    • When you first met him, when and how did you know he was the one you wanted to marry

Have a conversation with his Parents 

In the old days, it was a tradition to as parents for ‘her’ hand. It depended entirely on the family. Maybe your partner would like that too? So, go ahead and suggest it to your partner’s parents. However, this doesn’t make your partner  someone else’s property. This is an example of how it might go: “I am entirely in love with your beautiful son, and I want to spend my whole life together with him. He means the world to me.”

Personalise it

If you already have a ring, then it’s time to start thinking about how and where you want to make the marriage proposal. Consider all sorts of ideas that your loved one would like. For example, a grand gesture, an intimate time, or a surprise surrounded by family and friends.

In any case, we advise focusing on a beautiful, lively location that you can easily decorate to your liking. It is also important to find that special location that has a meaning for you and your husband-to-be.

Buy an engagement ring

The engagement ring is a piece of jewellery which will be worn every day for the rest of your partner’s life. Therefore, it is important to know what they like. It would be easy if he has some Pinterest boards of jewellery he likes to wear or wants to have.

When it comes to jewellers, make recommendations to be certain you are buying from a trusted company with excellent reviews and service. Finding out his ring size is one last thing you should do before you go. Just ask if it’s not a secret.

Capture this moment

This unforgettable moment of your life or milestone should be captured. We recommend hiring a camera operator or asking a friend for help. In that way, they can videotape the proposal. With this video you can relive the moment whenever you want to. Besides, it is a great way to share your important moment with friends and family who couldn’t attend.
