The Groom’s Room – The Proposal Part 2

Posted on February 14, 2011

In Part Two of the proposal, Mark is going to share a small check list of thoughts that you may wish to consider before proposing to your partner. If you haven’t read part one of The Proposal, you can find it here.

Below is a small list of things to consider before you propose. Use these points to gain inspiration before planning and creating the perfect moment for your proposal:

  • Is she the sort of girl who would want to be proposed to in a public place? This is an intimate moment and some women will not want to share it with anyone else.
  • Have you thought about the type of ring she wants?  There are a lot of different styles so make sure you do some detective work and understand the type of rings she really loves.
  • Do you know her ring size?  This can be hard to know this for her wedding finger but try your best anyway!
  • The words you use to propose will be what makes this moment truly special. You need to be sweet and endearing.  Try and speak from the heart and tell her exactly why you want to spend the rest of your life with her.
  • Location, location, location.  Find the perfect place for her.  Try to understand where she wants this to happen – inside, outside, intimate place, public place… There are lots of options and remember, they don’t have to cost a fortune.
  • Time of year… Now this is important. Romantics may want to propose on Valentine’s day.  A lot of people like to propose around Christmas time as they will be seeing family and can share the news. Some people want to take a summer holiday and do it while away from home. There is no right answer here, however if you know what your partner wants, it should help you to find a suitable time.

A proposal can seem daunting when you start planning it. The fact is, a proposal will take a lot of effort to get right. But the effort will be what makes the occasion special for both of you.  Unfortunately, a cost is usually unavoidable, especially when buying the ring.  But, if you can budget for this beforehand, it may make the overall cost more affordable.  Also remember, you don’t have to spend a fortune to make it special!

Finally, enjoy the moment.  It should be a special day that will stay a fond memory for you both for many years.
