Planning a proposal might seem intimidating—but it doesn’t have to be. As long as you are confident in your decision and give it thought, following these steps will help ensure that you leave the stress behind you.
It Takes Two
One of the most important parts of any proposal is making sure that you and your partner are on the same page. Have you two discussed marriage, the future, and what that looks like? This is something that is imperative to discuss if you are unsure. If you like traditions, another nice step is to ask your partner’s parents for permission or at least let them know about your plan so they can feel included.
Put a Ring On It
Now that you’ve found the right person, it’s time to pick out the right ring! If you know what styles they love then you are set—if not, take a peek at their secret Pinterest page or enlist the help of a close friend to find a ring that will “wow”. Browse through Morgan Jewelers’ extensive collection of engagement rings to get inspiration for different styles and cuts.
Grand Gesture or Private Proposal?
Think about what kind of proposal your partner would cherish and feel comfortable with. Is your future fiance private? If they prefer time spent with just you two, they might appreciate something more intimate. If your partner loves grandeur and big gestures, opt for something a little showier! Maybe your relationship is centered around nature, choose your favorite hiking spot to pop the question. Location matters—make sure you choose to propose somewhere meaningful and special.
All About Timing
Don’t feel rushed, this is an important and cherished time in your life. Plan the proposal ahead of time and give yourself plenty of time to plan and prepare. If you are proposing, odds are that you have thought about this quite a bit. Choose a time of year that you think would fit in well with the timeline of your relationship.
Choose Your Words Wisely
You might be dreading the “proposal speech”, but in reality, you don’t need to have some grand speech memorized to make this moment special. Speaking from the heart is always appreciated, but it might be wise to give some thought to how you want to ask the question.
Capture the Moment
One thing you’ll never regret is capturing the moment. Enlist the help of a professional photographer to hide in the wings and capture the special moment. If you want to keep the proposal top secret and intimate, hiring a professional is the way to go. They will know how to be a fly on the wall and snapshots that you’ll cherish forever. Looking on social media is a great way to find local wedding and proposal photographers. This is one of the components that you will want to plan well in advance!
Celebrate Your Love
To add the cherry on top, consider planning a celebration for afterward. It can be as big or small, as grand or intimate as you think appropriate. Plan a get-together with family and friends, or a nice dinner for two at your favorite date night spot. Whatever the case, it’s always nice to have a plan for the night in place to continue to ride the proposal high!
