One of the scariest questions you’ll ask in your lifetime is “Will you marry me?”. Although we can often accurately assume the answer, this doesn’t do anything to calm the nerves. This is because it’s a big question – you are asking your partner to spend the rest of their life with you!
So, with so much on the line, it’s understandable that you’ll want your marriage proposal to be as successful as possible. To help you get down on one knee with confidence, we’ve put together everything you need for a successful marriage proposal.
1. The Right Mindset
Before you go shopping for rings and roses, it’s important that you have the right mindset. After all, you should be proposing for the right reasons. So, take a moment to ask yourself whether you actually want to get married, and if you do, what are your reasons why?
It’s ok if you don’t want to get married – so long as your partner is on the same page. It’s also worth noting that proposing because you feel like you have to is not a good enough reason.
2. The in-laws on your side
The days of asking your in-laws for permission have been and gone. It is, however, a very classy move to simply notify them of your intentions. This shows a great deal of respect for your future family which can only be good for you and your partner.
3. The Right Engagement Ring
For a successful proposal, you need the right ring. The problem is that there are just so many rings out there to choose from. So, where do you start?
If you don’t want to waste hours of time scrolling the internet and trying to ask covert questions, speak to the experts at Valentina engagement rings.
They specialize in all things engagement rings and will have the perfect ring waiting for you in their incredible collection!
4. A Great Plan
The next step for a great proposal is a plan! You can try to wing it, but it’s hard to be successful when you wing it.
When planning your proposal, think about a proposal that your partner will love – not what will look best on Instagram.
If your partner is shy, perhaps a proposal in front of a large crowd isn’t the best idea? If you’re short on ideas, nostalgia is always great fuel for romance. Recreating a big date or romantic moment from your relationship is an excellent place to start.
5. A Good Plan B
Despite our best-laid plans, sometimes fate and chance love to intervene. To help combat these uncontrollable forces, we strongly recommend having a pack up plan.
This will also help you to feel more relaxed for your initial proposal plan too!
With the right planning and attitude, you’ll be able to pull off a very successful proposal!
