4 Tips When You’re Planning a Proposal | Wedding

planning a proposal

Many things can make or break your proposal, including the location and even what you say. This is often why rushed proposals don’t always go as planned, regardless of how you and your partner feel about one another. Because of this, there’s a lot to think of when planning a proposal properly, and it’s much more complicated than simply getting down on one knee and popping the question. If you want to propose soon, here are four tips to remember. 

Do Your Ring Research

Anyone who has purchased an engagement ring will tell you it is much more than simply choosing one that looks pretty. When planning your proposal, researching engagement rings for sale can open up plenty of options, including the band colour, style, and size of the diamond. But, you mustn’t assume it will arrive the next day (so rushed proposals are a no-go). As many of these engagement rings are custom-made to suit your preferences, they can take weeks to make before delivery, so make sure you research the process and time when choosing the perfect ring for your partner.  

Consider Your Partner’s Personality 

Everyone’s partner is different, but if you have discussed proposals and marriage before, you should feel confident enough that they will say yes when you finally pop the question. However, while some couples look forward to big displays out in public, these public proposals are not always suitable. When you are planning to propose, consider your partner’s personality. Are they someone who would love a big announcement in the middle of a crowd, or are they more private and would want you to do something secluded and romantic? While they will (likely) say yes anyway, the way you propose can have a significant impact on their memories. 

Find Someone You Trust Before Planning a Proposal

Lots of people want to immortalise their proposal with a photograph, but this can be tricky if you want it to be a surprise. You can set up your phone or camera in a hidden place that will capture you during the proposal, but this can be risky. Instead, consider getting someone you trust, such as a friend or relative, to capture the moment for you, although they will need to stay hidden. You could ask a stranger, but this isn’t always a good idea. 

Don’t Panic

No matter how much you plan your proposal, you need to remember that things can happen that could interfere with your plans. The weather may suddenly turn, or the spot where you hoped to propose might be too crowded. In these instances, you are bound to panic a little, which is why having a backup plan can help you overcome any unexpected issues. If you need to propose on a specific day (like a birthday or anniversary), make sure your backup is close by, but if it can wait a few more days or weeks, you can iron out the finer details beforehand. 

Will You…?

Proposals are an exciting and nervous time for anyone who wants to ask the most important question of their life. If you are planning a proposal, you want to make sure everything is perfect, and these tips can help you get every detail right so it’s a moment you and your partner will remember forever.
