You’ve found “the one” that you are ready to spend the rest of your life with, and you couldn’t be happier! So you’re thinking about popping the question, or maybe you’ve gotten the ring already and you’re just trying to come up with the perfect moment.
Congratulations! Proposing is one of the most special moments in your life, but it can also be one of the most nerve wracking. Here’s how to go about your proposal so that it will be a beautiful and special moment you will both cherish forever.
Talk it Out
You want the proposal to be a surprise, but you also want to know that it’s going to be a good idea in the first place! Make sure you’ve brought up the idea of getting married with your future partner so that you know you’re both on the same page. While you’re at it, you could always take the opportunity to ask what type of ring they want. It could be one of the engagement rings New York if that’s a place that’s special to both of you, or they could want something small and simple. You may think you know their style, but it’s best to stay on the safe side and check first!
Location, Location, Location
One of, if not the most important thing you’ll have to think about when it comes to proposing, is the location of the proposal. You of course want to choose a place that is special to both of you, perhaps the location where you first met or decided that you’d be together forever? If you don’t live in the same area as where you met, you can still recreate a special moment in your past by making the first meal you had together or playing the first song you both danced to. Just make sure that whatever you decide to do, it’s a proposal that will be unique to your relationship!
Pick the Atmosphere
Do you or your significant other prefer proposals that are more private? Maybe you could make them a nice dinner at home and propose over a bottle of champagne, or go to your favorite restaurant and ask to be seated in a tucked-away corner so that you can have a little bit more privacy when you pull out the ring. Or perhaps you are both the “go big or go home” type and would love to be surrounded by friends and family, or pop the question in a big way in front of an audience of people? Make sure you’re gauging your partner well. You don’t want to propose in the middle of Time’s Square if the person you’re asking to spend the rest of your life with hates big crowds!
Cheers to the perfect person in your life, and the most perfect proposal you can give! Remember that although this is a big moment, even if things aren’t perfect the most important thing at the end of the day is the relationship between you and your loved one, and there’s no proposal misstep that can change that!
