Getting married is a big deal. But before you get married, you have to get engaged.
If you’re wanting to ask the love of your life to marry you in the near future, here are three tips for planning the perfect proposal to start off your engagement and married life together.
Make Sure The Ring Is Safe and Secure
Prior to your proposal taking place, the first thing you need to do is get the ring that you’ll propose with.
One the day of your proposal, Jaimie Mackey and Blair Donovan, contributors to Brides.com, recommend that you keep the ring as safe and secure as possible. This should include putting the ring in a zippered pocket so that it doesn’t fall out or get lost. This pocket should be one that’s easy for you to get to when the time comes for you to pop the question.
Additionally, you should also keep the ring safe and secure by getting proper insurance for it as soon as you purchase it and then finding a safe place to hide the ring until the day of your proposal comes. By safely hiding the ring as well as getting insurance, you’ll know that the ring is safe from being stolen or broken before you’re able to give it to your future fiance.
Plan Something Meaningful
For many people, it can be hard to know what to plan for the actual proposal. In some situations, simply finding a quiet moment to share your feelings and pop the question is enough. For others, you might want to plan something extravagant that involves multiple places, people, or experiences.
Whatever you decide to do, Martha Stewart Weddings suggests that you just try to plan something meaningful to you and your partner. To do this, try thinking back to a moment that you shared together that you’ll never forget. Whether this means going to the place of your first kiss, where you first shared your feelings for one another, or just something that you both love, whatever is meaningful for the two of you in your relationship will make for a great and memorable proposal.
Get Someone To Document The Moment
Regardless of what you choose to do for your proposal, Candice Jalili, a contributor to Cosmopolitan.com, recommends that you share your plans with someone and ask them to be there to take photos of the occasion for you.
If you have the budget, you might want to consider getting a professional photographer to hide while you do your proposal. But if this isn’t in the cards for you, asking a friend or family member to document everything will work just fine.
