Speak to friends and family members

Ahead of the proposal, you should consider speaking to your partner’s loved ones. Traditionally, people would seek out approval from parents ahead of asking for their child’s hand in marriage, but it’s also really beneficial to speak to the people closest in your life to share your excitement and take any suggestions from them regarding how and when you could propose. 

Find the perfect location

You want the proposal to be the most magical experience for both you and your partner, so think carefully about where you would want to propose. You could take them to a place where you have shared cherished memories over the years, perhaps where you went on your first date or your favourite fine-dining restaurant. If your partner is not one for being the centre of attention, you could choose to go to a secluded location where you can propose in privacy and enjoy the moment just the two of you. Many people choose to get engaged on a romantic getaway, so you could arrange a weekend break or a holiday and make it the trip of a lifetime they will never forget. 

Choosing the ring for the wedding proposal

One of the most important things you need to think about is what sort of ring you would like to present to your loved one. You want something that will suit their personality and that is individual to them. Spend time carefully considering which sort of diamond ring they would love, whether it’s a small delicate white goals band or something more unique such as an oval-shaped diamond or a coloured gemstone. 

Plan what you are going to say

Arguably the most daunting part about the proposal is choosing what you are going to say to your loved one as you ask for their hand in marriage. You want to express your undying love for your partner and just how much they mean to you. Think back to some of the wonderful moments you have spent together over the years and your story as a couple and incorporate some of the cherished memories you have shared as you build up to getting down on one knee. Just speak from the heart and express your genuine emotion so they know just how much you love them.
