Asking your partner to join you in matrimony is unmistakably nerve-wracking, and it might take you some time to work up the courage to ask them, and this is perfectly normal. It’s a very serious display of your love, gratitude, and commitment to another person. With this said, the prospect of spending the rest of your life with the person you’re in love with is thrilling and incredibly exciting. Show them that you care, and understand what makes them happy by creating a marvellous scene from which to pop the big question. The setting is very important, and it’ll become “the place,” or “your place” whereby you both agreed to begin the rest of your lives together, shared together.
The Ring Must Be Perfect
If you know you want to marry your partner but your budget doesn’t quite permit the most beautiful engagement ring in the shop, then you can always use a stand-in and offer a ring that’ll act as the engagement ring until you’ve saved enough to purchase the one of your fiancé’s dreams. The main aspect is to find one that they’ll love and that you’ve chosen with their individual taste in mind. In terms of being patient to find the perfect ring, you can do some research online. If you wish to mix style with elegance, then consider getting a rose gold morganite ring and impressing your loved one with a large sparkling diamond or a series of them arranged as part of the band.
Make Sure You Feel Relaxed
Rehearsing what you’re going to say is never a bad idea. To dissipate some of your nerves, create a handful of notes that you plan to memorize in order to deliver a heartfelt message to your partner. Ensure that you’re feeling ready and relaxed before you ask so that you’ll remember the moment and just how special it was rather than your overpowering nerves!
Plan, Plan, Then Plan Some More
Traditionally speaking, the day you propose will have been well thought through and meticulously planned. Admittedly, many marriage proposals happen in the spur of a perfect moment on a romantically charged whim when someone cannot think of anything else but asking their loved one to marry them. However, many proposals do take some planning to ensure that the day is perfect, that every element is right, and that the lighting, the time of day, and the scene is just right. If you have a favourably nostalgic place in mind, then consider visiting prior to going with your partner, and scoping out the area for potential hiccups, such as whether areas are not open to the public or not.
Visit Alone Beforehand
Check to see if the venue for the big question is still as you remember it to be. If it’s somewhere you courted as a young couple, then make sure it still appears as it did then. Make sure you don’t have to walk for miles to reach it (unless hiking and walking is something you both enjoy). Look for accessible parking, transport links, where the busy and the quiet areas are, and what’s nearby in terms of eateries, bars, and entertainment places. If you wish to keep this moment insular and intimate, then consider decking out your home garden with comfortable seating areas, soft lighting such as candles and fairy lights, and newly planted flowers, shrubs, and herbaceous borders.
