So, you’re ready to pop the question and enjoy the life of happiness with the awesome person of your choosing. Well good, the easy part is over, but now you’ve got some thinking to do. Do you just get down on one knee and ask them in the middle of the street? No, probably not, not unless you want them to be too stunned to even give you a reply. We all want to make it unique for our lovers because they’re great, they deserve it. However, figuring out the logistics and finding a way to make it all work in your favour isn’t the easiest thing in the world. But fear not, we’ve got some tips to turn your proposal into something lovely and special, something that’s bound to make them say yes in under a second.
Every couple, during the course of their relationship, gathers up a lot of memories, and a lot of places that become meaningful to them. All those inside jokes, the secrets you’ve shared only with them, the songs and books that you both know by heart. Take this knowledge and make something truly unique from it by organizing a mini scavenger hunt for your darling. Start from home and write them a little note, detailing the rules of the hunt and giving them the first clue. Lead them around slowly and then, as the grand prize, just when they reach the end, get down on one knee and propose. From a fun game where they probably expected nothing more than maybe a dinner date, watch the joy on their face as you hold the engagement ring and ask them to wed you. Just do keep in mind not to make the clues overly complicated because you could confuse them and have the whole thing last too long.
A crafty proposal
If you’re clever with your hands, you could actually craft your proposal in the form of a scrapbook, or a photo album. Take a pretty notebook and print out pictures of you as a couple. Stick them inside the notebook and write quotes, lyrics, jokes, anything you two find important. You can put anything in there, from the movie tickets from your first date to your thoughts about them and how much they mean to you. Give it to them and tell them it’s just a cute scrapbook that you put together. Let them turn the pages slowly, and talk to them, enjoy the memories, enjoy the laughter. Then, when they finally come to the last page, the one where you wrote “Will you marry me?” pull out the ring and tell them how much you love them. This kind of scrapbook is pretty amazing because you can keep it forever and pass it on to your kids, and it’s a great way for them to see how much effort you’ve put into it, how much it matters to you.
Plan a romantic camping trip just for the two of you, and make sure to check the forecast so that the weather doesn’t ruin your plans. Just imagine that camping atmosphere – the quiet of the nature, the warmth and crackling of the campfire and roasting marshmallows, the two of you alone and undisturbed. It’s the perfect time for those long, meaningful conversations, for the declaration of love, for the vow to always want them near. And then, you pop the question and pull out a shiny diamond and practically have them cry from happiness. When browsing diamond engagement rings, make sure to pick the right one. There are many shapes, and you want to choose the one that will suit your partner perfectly. Of course, you don’t necessarily need to get a diamond ring but, regardless of what you pick, make sure to keep it safe. It’s easy to lose things outdoors, so keep it in a place where it won’t fall out.
Organizing a good proposal doesn’t need to be complicated. All you have to do is rely on your knowledge of your partner and remember to speak from your heart.
