A bit of a given as you wouldn’t be researching proposal ideas or tips if you weren’t in love with your partner! Although you may be ready to take that next step it is always a good idea to sound out your partner or enlist the help of a friend.
It’s fairly common for couples to talk about “getting married” before but if you’re not that type of couple maybe have a friend put out a statement/joke and gauge the reaction. A typical line could be the jokey, “So when are you two getting married then…”
This element could be wrapped up into the plan, but I feel by taking it out it makes the whole process easier.
This is where you need to work out what really matters to both you and your partner. Whether that is making a speech, sing a song or writing it in the sky; it all comes down to what would mean the most to you both.
With the proposal, there is no one idea fits all, hopefully by now you know what your partner likes but more importantly dislikes…
Would they hate being front and centre in a crowd? Maybe don’t propose in a public area or stadium.
Would they want their friends and family around to share the moment? Maybe a family get together. Or use an Engagement Cam and the share the video afterwards!
Make them work for it and build the suspense? Perhaps a treasure hunt would work.
Head back to a favorite spot. Maybe where you went on your first date or holiday.
Above all, ask yourself….
Will they like this? Do I like this? Can I pull it off?
Sharing the news is commonly an afterthought or left up to your partner to do. I strongly recommend putting some thoughts into a few ideas on how you are going to tell your friends and family. Most partners are still in shock when they break the news and we hear all the time that they wish they had done something better to tell their loves ones.
The little touches are what is going to make the memory extra special. Just ask yourself, what is the story going to be that she tells her friends, mum, sister, brother co-worker and even the lady in the local shop…Think of a cool way to capture the news other than the standard, “here’s a close up of their hand with the ring”. One of the coolest ways I have recently seen, was a couple who sent a crossword out to their friends to work out and uncover the news.
And there you have it; a quick whizz through of five steps to consider when planning your marriage proposal.
Key points to take away:
– Keep it personal.
– Put some thought into the plan, a little prep goes a long way.
– Think of the little things.
– Have a backup plan.
