Whether you’re high school sweethearts, met through a mutual friend, both swiped right, or actually managed to meet in a bar, somehow you found love, and it’s time to make it stick! So, how are you gonna pop the question? Check out our 6 crucial tips for a successful marriage proposal.
1. Discuss about marriage
Yes, you want the proposal to be a surprise, but you also don’t want your girl to be caught off-guard. It is important to have an honest discussion about your relationship first before you propose. If you and your partner are ready to take your relationship to the next level, then proceed with the process of asking for her hand from her parents.
2. Ask for her parents’ blessing
Asking your girlfriend’s parent’s blessing to marry her can be nerve-wracking to say the least. You can start off by expressing your feelings for their daughter. Then explain your wish to marry her. Assure them that you understand this is serious and you are ready to commit to her through marriage. Promise them to take care of her like they, her parents, have taken care of her. Now ask. Everything you have said has led up to this moment, so don’t forget to ask, “May I have your blessing to marry your daughter?”
3. Get the engagement ring
The engagement ring is a piece of jewelry your partner will be wearing every day for the rest of her life, so get a sense of what she’ll really love! First, you got to investigate her ring size. If it’s not a secret, just ask. If you’re going the surprise route, check your partner’s jewelry. Find a ring that she wears regularly (and make a note of which finger it goes on), then either bring it with you to a jeweler or mark how far it fits on your own finger. You don’t have to worry too much about the ring size because there’s always resizing.
4. Select a sentimental location
For example, it could be the restaurant where you had your first date, the rooftop bar where you shared your first kiss, or the spot where you first said “I love you.” And if you decided to propose to your girlfriend for instance, in a hotel room, don’t forget to set a romantic mood that will sweep her off her feet! Be sure to choose the right kind of music, decorations like helium balloons, and scattered rose petals, and scented candles. Get your friends & family to help you out too because the more the merrier! And also easier. You’re not alone in planning this proposal. After all, it’s a pretty big day for everyone’s fav couple.
5. Surprise her by having friends & family share the big moment
They could be right there with you, perhaps at a family gathering or holiday dinner. Or, if you’d like the proposal to be just the two of you, you could arrange to have your closest loved ones just out of view, maybe looking on from a nearby vantage point. After you pop the question and she says “YES!”, wave everyone in for a big group hug and lots of congratulations. It’s the best of both worlds; you get a lovely, intimate moment alone and then have all of your favorite people share in your happiness immediately afterwards.
6. Speak from the heart
You could plan anything, but it’s the words you say that make your proposal truly one-of-a-kind. Tell her what you love about her, yes, but also tell her when you knew she was The One. Whatever you do, don’t read word by word from a written speech. You can sound awkward, lose that connection of looking into her eyes, and she might wonder if you found any of those phrases or quotes online. Also, don’t forget to breathe! Speak slowly, and if you shed some tears, that just makes it all even more unforgettable.
We wish you all the best in your marriage proposal. Good luck and congratulations in advance!
