You have found the one you love and you want to put a ring on it to make your commitment official. Asking the all-important question “Will you marry me?” deserves an extra special occasion. You might have some ideas already, but you are not too sure how to create an unforgettable, magical moment then here are some ideas for you.
In this blog I suggest 5 ways how you can make your wedding proposal part of the journey to a “happily ever after”, because this proposal should reflect the relationship you have with one another.
Wedding proposals can be intimate and beautiful or elaborated and breath-taking but, in any case, planning a proposal can be a little bit over whelming.
Where shall I propose?
Think of a place which has a special meaning to you both. Meaningful locations can be close to home – especially as we cannot easily travel abroad at the moment. You could even plan for your romantic proposal in your home.
You could go down on one knee in the restaurant where you had your first date, or your first kiss; Or choose a place that you always wanted to take your future wife or husband. The location of the proposal is very important and meaningful and is an essential part of the proposal planning. Make it meaningful.
Shall I ask for permission from a family member?
Some people are very traditional and they want to seek the blessing from a close family member before they go ahead with the proposal, and that is perfectly ok. It is your proposal after all! However, some people might not feel the need to gain a blessing, just make sure you are both ok about throwing tradition to the wind.
What type of proposal shall I plan?
You defiantly want your proposal to be personalised and unique. Consider if he or she would want it to be a lavish event with a certain amount of luxury or rather a romantic picnic on the beach at sunset? You might want to plan beyond a dinner for two in the local Indian, not that there is anything wrong with it but, you can aim higher and create an event that surpasses all expectations. Make it personal!
What does your significant other love doing? What are her or his favourite colours or flowers? Would it be nice to have live music in the background? How about a morning hike in the dunes and seeing the words “Will you marry me? “written in the sand below you? No need to make things awkward – just think about the things you love doing!
Shall I just buy a ring?
Unless you have not had the conversation already, choosing the ring is another very important part of the wedding proposal planning. If you are unsure what he or she might like, enlist the help of a friend or a family member to get some hints and ideas. Check out her or his Pinterest boards!!
I know of a couple where the HTB did not buy the ring the BTB wanted and it nearly ruined the occasion completely. So check out her Pinterest board!!!
How to I capture the occasion? A Selfie?
Make sure someone is there to capture the event when you go down on one knee. The moment he or she said” Yes” will be etched into your memories’ forever and this moment needs to be captured on film. You can hire a photographer who can remain unseen and who will capture the entire event on film from the distance to make sure you can revisit the moment again and again.
One thing we have learnt in the last 14 months is, to be grateful for the little things and the personal moments. Make your wedding proposal the most meaningful and personal moment in 2021, because it will create the most unforgettable story that will be told for years to come.
