When you decide it’s time to make that marriage proposal, you should seriously consider doing something amazing to get her to say yes. Just getting on one knee is pretty boring in today’s standards. You need to come up with something great.
Here are a few ideas, and don’t forget that you also want to come up with the perfect ring too. Not all girls want a diamond, so take some time to find out what ring would be perfect for your girl. She might prefer blue sapphire engagement rings, or maybe she’d like a ruby or another gemstone. Get something unique that shows her how special she is.
Remember, the proposal is about your love for one another, but you also want it to look good, which means doing it the right way and having an amazing engagement ring she’ll love to show off.
Where You Propose
Your perfect proposal may be all about where you propose. Whether you want to propose alone or in front of all of your friends and family, location is key. Pick a place that is special to both of you, or at least to her. Maybe the beach or maybe a special restaurant. The possibilities are endless.
Take her back to the place of your first date. Hire a banner plane and write it on the sky. Maybe you want to do something silly and have a singing telegram do your proposal for you. It really depends on the two of you as a couple on what will work best for a memorable marriage proposal.
If she spends a lot of time at work, make a plan with her boss to come in and do your proposal there. It’s a great way to show her that your support her work ethic and her co-workers will likely be thrilled to help out.
How You Propose
You can ask her to marry you with or without the words. You can video tape yourself asking and play the video at a certain time. You can stand on stage and propose. You can have that singing telegram or that airplane do it for you. Maybe you want to hang a giant banner in or on your house for when she returns from a weekend away.
There are endless ways to ask “Will you marry me?” Something that could be really adorable is, if you are dating someone that speaks another language that you don’t know, to take the time to learn how to ask in that language. Such as, your soon to be fiance has German parentage, and although she speaks English, she knows German from growing up. You don’t have to learn the language, but learn that phrase and you’ll make it a special proposal.
If you sit and think for just a little while these ideas will spark some of your own that will work perfect for you and your (hopefully) future bride.
Do something that stands out. You do want to be the same as every other couple because you aren’t the same as every other couple. Plus, proposing in a stellar way will give you great stories to tell your children someday.
