Tried and true
A popular way to propose marriage is during a meal at a romantic restaurant. If you feel your partner would appreciate this type of proposal, take some time to consider the details which will create a unique and special experience for both of you. Choose a special restaurant, perhaps where you went for your first date, or somewhere you’ve both wanted to try. Be sure to advise the restaurant of your special event and check the date you have booked doesn’t clash with a noisy event. It’s also useful to ensure your partner is aware you are going out for a dinner at a special place so attire can be appropriate. A surprise proposal after your partner has just arrived straight from work before a shower and a change of clothes, may not be appreciated.
A home-cooked dinner can be another romantic event to present a proposal, especially if your partner ordinarily does the cooking. Just because you are at home, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t put in any extra effort. Ensure the home is clean and tidy, advise family and friends that you are not to be disturbed and turn your mobile phones off. Run your partner a bath or pour a glass of wine so he/she can relax while you cook the dinner.
Practice how you are going to word your proposal. If you're a person of few words, keep it short, but try to add something personal and unique that relates to your relationship.If you are a creative type, using your creativity to propose will make it extra special and memorable. Consider writing your proposal in the sand at the beach, creating a poem or a song for your loved one or designing a special painting or card.
Recreate a special event
Keep it simple
Often, the simplest proposals are the best. Wrapping the ring in increasingly bigger parcels or boxes is an easy and fun way to do this. If starry nights or rainbows are special to the couple, propose next time there is one on display. Another simple yet romantic way to propose is to leave notes around the house with clues which lead to the engagement ring.
A proposal of marriage is a serious commitment, making it romantic and perfect will ensure it is an event to be treasured and remembered for many years to come.
