Alright gentlemen – it’s time. You’ve been dating for long enough and you just know she’s the one. But now, you’ve got to ask the question. Are your knees shaking yet? Your palms sweaty? What’s the worry – you know she’s going to say yes, but we know you want to do it in a way that she will never forget. Let the ‘love experts’ at Chukkar Farm give you a few fool-proof proposal ideas on how to pop the question to your lovely bride to be.
1. Surprise Her
Even if she says she hates surprises – this is one of those once-in-a-lifetime events that should be surrounded by excitement and not just one more thing she crosses off her list of things to do in a day.
2. Avoid The ‘Stadium’ Proposal
Unless you’re 10,000% sure the answer is yes, and you both happen to love being the center of attention, popping the question in front of a lot of people – whether strangers or friends – puts all kinds of unnecessary pressure on her to give you the ‘right’ answer.
3. Make it Personal
The best proposals are the ones that involve future groom thinking long and hard about what future wife loves, who she is, what she enjoys. Spend time thinking about all the little things that make her who she is and use those clues to personalize your proposal into an event that shows her you truly love everything about her.
4. Make it Last
What do we mean? Remember that after you pop the question, the proposal isn’t over. This is a moment that you will both want to savor, so make sure you allow time for that. Whether you just want to spend the rest of the afternoon and evening going through your regular routine together, or you want to continue to plan something unique for the day is up to you. Decide based on your bride, your relationship, and who the two of you are together.
Then, get ready for wedding planning!
