So, you’ve made up your mind that the time is right to propose, but you’re holding back because you want to ensure that the proposal is a perfect memorable moment. You remember your friends’ stories of their mind-blowing proposals, and you are well and truly feeling the pressure. Stop! You can make your marriage proposal memorable without a huge production. Here are some more subtle ways to make the moment memorable:
Choose a Unique Engagement Ring
Make sure you visit a jeweler that offers a selection of engagement rings. Doing so will enable you to pick out a more unique ring, which will stand out from the rest and make your girl the envy of all her friend. When choosing a unique engagement ring, be sure to bear in mind your girl’s individual style, so that you can choose a ring she will really love.
Get the Family Involved
If your fiancée-to-be is particularly close to her family, instead of popping the question when it’s just the two of you, why not get the family involved? She’ll love the fact that she is able to share such a special moment with her nearest and dearest and the parents will love you for letting them be there to witness one of the most important moments in their daughter’s life.
Propose to your partner when they expect it least. If you have to, enlist your friends in creating the perfect ruse to sucker them in and ensure that a marriage proposal is the last thing on their mind.
Do It Somewhere Romantic
Whether it’s a trip to Venice or your local beauty spot where you shared your first kiss, don’t make the proposal until you’re in a romantic setting, preferably at sunset, and the moment will be magical even if you do without the bells and whistle that some couples put in place when they get engaged.
Hire a Photographer
Hire a photographer to capture the magic moment when you propose and you will never forget it. You can put up pictures in your home, on your desk at work and anywhere else you would like to remember the moment you made a commitment to each other.
Hire a Hot Air Balloon
Hot air balloon proposals may not be as obscure as some methods of marriage proposal, but they are a classic for a good reason. You and your partner will be up in the air, experiencing magical views of the landscape below, which is pretty romantic in itself, Add in champagne and a proposal, and you have a pretty memorable occasion. Most hot air balloon flights only take off at sunrise and sunset too, and since these are the most romantic times of day, a hot air balloon proposal can be effortlessly romantic!
However you decide to propose, as long as you make it about your love as a couple, relax into the moment and avoid trying too hard and remember the ring, your engagement will be one that is remembered for the rest of your days.
