Proposing to someone is a big thing and certainly something you need to be a hundred per cent sure of before you do it. It’s also something you will want to be memorable, meaningful and in a way have a nod to your time together. Whether that’s connecting it to a place you went for a first date, an inside joke or something you both love. Here are a few key things to do before proposing.
Is It Something You Both Want?
One of the most important things to consider is if you both actually want to get married. Not everyone wants to have a normal marriage, house, and kids life. Some people don’t have any desire to get married and will happily show their love for their partners in other ways so having a conversation before you’re wanting to propose is a big to-do on your list. It’s important to know you’re both going in the same direction and wanting the same things out of life.
The Most Important, The Ring
Engagement rings can be hard to shop for because it can be difficult to know your partner size. There are a few ways that you can do this. You could borrow a ring from her collection and say you’re getting it cleaned, you could try simply asking and sometimes if you know the height and weight jewellers can estimate what size ring you need. They can also resize after so it’s not the end of the world. It’s also important to know what type of rent they may want. Some people want them or classic and traditional engagement rings and some people want more unique engagement rings. Once you know that and your budget you can go off and find the perfect one for your love.
Give Them A Pamper Beforehand
An odd one but an important one. After you proposed and they have hopefully said yes. One of the first things You Will be doing is to take pictures to remember the moment. Your other half or very much thank you if they have had a fresh manicure and either gel nails or acrylics on when they’re taking their pictures for the first time with the ring on.
