The moment leading to an engagement should be epic. It is a story that will get told over and over again for the rest of your lives. If you’re a little short on ideas, browse through our top five ideas and you may find inspiration to plan your own perfect proposal:
1. First date memories
Reliving your first date memories is undoubtedly one of the best ways to propose because it brings everything full circle: the moment you started becoming important to each other and the moment that you both agree to be together for the rest of your lives.
2. Somewhere public
Public proposals may seem unappealing for some women, but for others, it’s the ultimate proof that you are willing to declare your love for her for all to witness. Just take note though that if your girlfriend happens to be on the fence about getting married in the near future or if you have never really directly discussed where the relationship is going, then you risk being embarrassed.
3. During a special occasion
Popping the question during an occasion like your anniversary or her birthday will certainly make the event more special. She will especially appreciate the fact that she is all dolled up for the mandatory Instagram photos and Facebook updates.
4. Something unexpected
The old favorites, like a diamond ring hidden in the dessert or a fortune cookie bearing a special message are still good options. Its success mostly depends on how you follow-up after she discovers the ring.
5. Among friends and family
If one or both of you have close-knit families or friends, then proposing in the presence of everyone will allow them to share in your joy. Plus, they will likely take lots of photos and videos to document your special couple moment.
