4 DOs and DON’Ts on How to Plan the Perfect Marriage Proposal

Regardless of how head-over-heels in love you are, gathering the courage to propose is a challenge. Beyond just stepping up to make a lifelong commitment, you have to make sure that the moment is special. After all, getting down on one knee takes perfect timing. It requires plenty of preparation, planning, and romantic imagination. 


Don’t Be Afraid to Make Some Magic:

Professional Proposal Planner Sarah Pease advises, “There is no wrong way to ask your special someone to marry you, but there are ways to make sure the marriage proposal goes off without a hitch. If ever there was a time for getting sentimental, this is it. Creatively draw on noteworthy moments of your relationship to make the proposal extraordinary.” Here are a few quick tips on how to pop the question:


1.  DO Put Some Thought into How You Ask:

A marriage proposal is one of those things in life that people just never forget. Don’t treat it like a casual chore, and don’t rush into it. Avoid resorting to cliches or awkward scenarios like asking through a jumbotron at a sports game.


2.  DON’T Make it All About You:

Even though the moment is inspired by your own feelings of love, the person who really needs to be impressed is whoever has to say ‘yes’. Plan out your proposal using a theme that appeals to your significant other.


3.  DO Make Arrangements to Film and Take Photos:

The more extravagant your proposal is going to be, the smarter it is to take lots of footage. A marriage proposal is one of those moments in a relationship when a couple gets to take center stage.


4.  DON’T Be Careless with the Ring:

Be careful not to propose in a location where your engagement ring can go missing. Stay away from bridges, heights, or large bodies of water because if the ring slips and falls, it’s gone forever.



       The best way to come up with a picture-perfect proposal is to make the occasion personal. Think about everything you’ve been through as a couple, and then use that journey to plan a memorable moment. Everything should fall into place as long as you don’t over-think the process. And even if everything doesn’t go according to plan, love is all you need to spark some unforgettable fireworks.
