Proposals are undoubtedly one of the most nerve-racking events youâ€™ll ever go through in your life. But with these four tips, youâ€™ll have your special day running as smoothly as you first imagined. Now, all thereâ€™s left is for her to say yes!
Keep reading to find out 4 things you must do to make sure your marriage proposal goes perfectly.
Make it personal
A marriage proposal is a huge moment for you and your partner -- so the pressure is on to make it a memorable event for the both of you. So, try to pull in as many meaningful elements from your relationship as possible.
Think of any special moments you two share, or visit any places that mean a lot to you and your future fiancee. Do you two have a special song? Think about hiring a musician to play that song right before you get down on one knee.
Also, consider hiring a photographer or videographer to record the moment you propose to her. That way, if you plan on inviting your family and friends along, anyone who wasnâ€™t able to make it will feel like they were there the whole time.
Plan a private affair
Does your girlfriend love being in the spotlight? Chances are she doesnâ€™t, so itâ€™s up to you to find out for sure before planning out an extravagant proposal in front of the whole city.
If youâ€™re not sure, consult with her family and friends first. (And if her parents are the traditional type, you definitely should be asking for their blessing before starting with any proposal plans!)
One method that works well is holding a surprise engagement party immediately after your private proposal. Enlist one of her friends to be the party planner, and have your close family and friends join in on that buzzy post-engagement feeling!
Develop your alibi beforehand
Thereâ€™s nothing that ruins a surprise marriage proposal like a partner that doesnâ€™t go along with your agenda.
So before you even put your plan into action, assess the situation. Is she having a bad day at work? Is she coming down with a cold? If your beloved isnâ€™t feeling at her best, it could put your scheme in jeopardy.
Additionally, youâ€™ll want to have a solid excuse to get her to where you want her to be for the proposal. Your future fiancee will probably have tons of questions asking why you want to take her to some place all the way across town for no good reason. So be prepared!
When it comes time to get down on one knee, youâ€™ll probably be nervous. So, a three-page script of why you want to spend forever with this woman is out of the question.
Instead, keep in mind three things you absolutely want to say to her during this special moment -- and you can even write it down on an index card if youâ€™re worried youâ€™ll forget that too. Let the rest unfold on its own.
Keep it simple and heartfelt. Elaborate speeches always sound great in theory, but with emotions running high it might be hard to get out what you want to say. Just be yourself! At the end of the day, thatâ€™s who your fiancee will be marrying anyway.
