Whether you are a man considering the traditional kind of proposal, or a woman hoping to make the most of leap day this year and propose to your man, or if you are in a homosexual couple, proposing is one of those things that you want to make sure you get right. It takes a lot of preparation, and a little practicing in front of the mirror, to ensure that you are going to make it turn out right. But as long as you do, it will mean that you and your partner are going to be much happier and that you are more likely to get the answer you are looking for. Let’s take a look at how to ensure that you get a wedding proposal right straight away.
Before you do anything else, you need to think about getting the ring. This is going to take a lot of thought and planning, and you will have to, of course, think about the financial side of things too. However, the old adage about having to spend a certain amount of month’s pay on the ring does not really strike many people as true anymore. In fact, you will want to make sure that you are not spending more than necessary – and you might even want to think about finding and using a blue nile coupon or something similar if you want to save some money. What matters is the ring itself, and the kind of thought process that went into finding and choosing that one specifically. Get that right, and the rest will follow.
Next, you will need to think about when you are going to propose. You might find that a good way to do it is to choose a memorable or important date, such as the date you first met or when you had your first date together. But remember to consider all of the normal admin stuff too – you want to make sure that you are both going to be available and able to really put your all into the moment, and that will be easier if there is not lots of stuff going on in the background. Think this over carefully before doing anything else. It really will make an enormous difference to the whole experience, and to the memory that you have of the proposal itself.
This is your opportunity to get a little creative and really let your partner know how you feel. You only get one chance at this generally, so it’s important to make sure that you say what you mean and that you don’t mince your words. It is a time for absolute honesty and real feeling, and as long as you follow that you should find that you are going to get a much better response on the whole. With the right words, you are going to feel more confident about it too – especially if you have practiced them well.
