The day you get down on one knee in front of the woman you love and ask her to spend the rest of her life with you is a special moment, no question about that. But this moment can be very scary. No matter how confident you are in your relationship (and in the fact that she will definitely say yes) when it comes down to the moment, Planning A Romantic Proposal is always terrifying, since you want to make sure that everything is perfect. The story of your engagement will be told for years and years, to your friends, family, and someday, your kids. To get it right, make sure to follow these foolproof tips.
Get on the same page with her
You are going to save yourself a lot of heartache and embarrassment by making sure that your girlfriend wants to get married. To make sure that the two of you are on the same page, try to bring up marriage (in a low-key setting) and ask her how she feels about it. Before you move forward, find out where she sees your relationship going. There is nothing worse than picking out a ring and asking the big question only to find out that your girl never wants to get married.
Get the Right Ring
Before you run to your local jewelry store and pick up a rock, you absolutely need to do your research. Keep in mind that she is going to be wearing this ring for the rest of her life, so you need to make sure she likes it. You’ll need to find out at three main specifications: stone type, metal type, and the cut of the rock. The best way to go about this is to ask her best friend because she is going to know what your girlfriend wants (because they have probably talked about it, a lot).
Bring on the romance
Regardless of what sort of proposal you pick, you should take some time to think about what you will say and how you are going to say it. Be original in your wording and tailor it to her and your relationship, maybe throwing in an inside joke that is going to light up the mood. Express how she makes you feel and what you love about her and watch as she melts and says, “Yes.”
