Dropping hints. Sometimes it’s hard to difficult to know exactly how to propose, especially if you’re not usually the one making the plans. We’ve compiled a few handy tricks and tips to help you gather those subtle engagement hints that hold the key to your partner’s perfect proposal. Today we look at ways to come up with the perfect proposal idea.
You thought the hard part was selecting a ring? I’m sorry to break the news, but there’s another hurdle to jump before having that ticked off the list.
Ring sizes aren’t easy to determine; there’s no cheating by looking in the closet whilst your partner is downstairs or making a semi-educated guess.
So, determining ring sizes can be a task in itself… but it’s far from impossible.
One way around this could be to ‘borrow’ your partner’s ring for the day, drop into a jeweller for a quick chat and get them to measure it for you. Voila.
However, unfortunately it isn’t always that easy. Other – seemingly more complex options- include: asking friends and family who have previously purchased jewellery for your partner or purchasing another ring with them (perhaps for a birthday or Christmas).
Location, Location, Location
Although there can be a lot of pressure put on the perfect place to propose, this is perhaps the easiest to explore. A popular and thoughtful choice can often include visiting the first place you met or went on a date, as this induces a sentimental nostalgia and reminds your partner how far you’ve come together since meeting. For those who prefer to steer clear of sentimental gestures, why not draft up a bucket list together and get down on one-knee in front of the Eiffel Tower or pop the question after surviving a wet and wild kayaking experience weaving through the Rocky Mountains.
So, from Paris to poolside and Rome to rooftops, the world is truly your oyster!
How to pull-off the perfect proposal
For the endless list of hopeless romantics, the perfect proposal has been planned, discussed, debated with friends and then re-planned a hundred times or more. So, why not make it easy for yourself and get your partner’s closest and oldest friends involved. I highly doubt the topic has never popped up over a glass or three of wine, so they could be the best advisors to help you craft the perfect way to propose. Further, if you require some assistance in planning, getting creative or adding the personal touch, don’t be afraid to contact the experts. At Captured Proposals, we support our clients in brainstorming and implementing the perfect plan to ensure a seamless and bespoke proposal.
So, whether you want an elaborate gathering or an intimate proposal, make sure you tailor it to your partner. If you’re considering getting engaged, you know them better than anyone… so trust yourself, your vision and how well you know your partner. If this sentiment guides you, you can’t go wrong.
