Ready To Pop The Question? Make It Count!

There are few things more exciting than deciding to spend the rest of your life with the person that you love. Knowing that no matter what you only want to wake up next to the same person every day forever. Of course, that when you reach that decision, it usually means that you’ve got one very important task to do: the proposal. While you might be perfectly happy with your choice to spend your life with someone, actually popping the question can be absolutely terrifying. This is because there’s often a lot of pressure to get your proposal right. After all, with something so momentous you want it to be perfect right? Well, here are a few things that you can do to make your proposal really count.

The ring

When most people think of a proposal, there’s one thing that jumps into their mind before anything else. That thing is, of course, the ring. Despite the fact that it’s only really been a tradition since about the 1930s, most of us couldn’t imagine proposing without an engagement ring to offer to our partner. Figuring out the kind of ring that’s best can be seriously tricky. After all, you really want to get something that your partner will love. Luckily, companies like 77 Diamonds are around to help you find the best possible ring. Whether you want something classic, on trend, or inspired by a celebrity couple, there are dozens of different styles that you can choose from.

The location

After the ring, the biggest thing that most people think about is where you’re going to pop the question. This again will come down very heavily on the kinds of people who you and your partner are. Some people might want to do in a public place where everyone can see, and some people might want it to be a private moment just between the two of you. If in doubt, try to think about places that are important to the two of you. Proposing somewhere that has a lot of emotional meaning to you both can make things even more romantic.

What you’re going to say

This is something that a lot of people tend to forget about. After all, you really only need to say those four, all important words. But come on, this is one of the most important questions that you’ll ever ask; you want to make it count right? Think carefully about what you want to say in order to really make your proposal as perfect, intimate and romantic as possible. Of course, you should probably keep it short. Otherwise, it might seem like you’re stalling!

Of course, it’s important to remember that a proposal is an incredibly personal thing. Sure there are a lot of rules about what you should or shouldn’t do, but the truth is that there is no right or wrong way to go about it. Think about you and your partner and just try to figure out the best and most personal way to ask them to spend the rest of their life with you.

    My husband did a lovely job of proposing. He really thought about me when he popped the question.

    My husband did a great job proposing. I could tell he really thought about me when he popped the question.

    • Aww that’s really lovely

  • Amy

    Lovely post, I remember when my fiancé proposed to me. It was so unexpected! But you’re right, the first thing that pops to your mind is the ring. Although I would have been happy without him using a ring, it certainly made it feel more real.

  • Well thats soo sweet… We never proposed each other but it was a mutual understanding between each other… things in our tradition works differently sometimes 😀

    • I can respect that, my tradition asks for mutual understanding then consulting both families before he can put the ring on me lol so talking understand

    This is such a sweet post. My husband never proposed to me in a real way. I made him buy me a ring. Though he did go down on his knee during our official rings exchanging ceremony 🙂 Nice ring BTW

    • Awww bless but I bet you loved the ring he got regardless of how the proposal was done.
      Thanks for stopping by

    My partner didn’t do anything fancy, no posh words or anything. In fact, I don’t remember him actually saying “will you marry me”, but it was perfect no less. Great tips for guys who tend to over think things though! x

    • I don’t think it’s ‘overthinking’ if you want it to be perfect for your partner. Not everyone is as confident and others just wants it to be perfect and MEMORABLE.

    This is too cute and sweet. I feel like sometimes the best moments are the most unexpected and less planned out. Good tips.

  • Jessica Taylor

    These are such awesome tips! I can see why location is so important!

  • So sweet. My husband proposed to me in a cheap hotel room when I was pregnant. But we were only 19 without a lot of money, so I didn’t need anything fancy.

  • These are some great tips, it definitely is a moment you have to right as it will be a story that will be told for many years to come.

    My husband and I just kind of decided we wanted to get married so we did. While I’m glad we discussed it, I do wish I had a romantic proposal, or any proposal for that matter, to be honest.

    These are really thoughtful pointers! I proposed to my wife in Phuket Thailand in an Italian restaurant! Was one of the most nervous moments of my life! 😀
