The Essential ABC’s To The Perfect Marriage Proposal

A is for… Ambiance!

We all know when planning an engagement, it is essential that you set the atmosphere for elegant romance.

B is for…Be Quiet

We know you’re excited and you’re probably pretty nervous too. But remember you want to surprise your partner! This is a MUST! It’s the name of the game.

This is the ONLY TIME it’s okay to lie to your partner, and they will be willing to instantly forgive you once you’ve popped the question – so make it count.

If you don't think you can carry out the planning and execution of your dream proposal without letting the cat out of the bag, consider hiring a Proposal Planner to take care of the details so you can relax.

C is for Create

Create the story you want to be told, and retold.

“When considering a proposal, think about what it will be like to rehash the way it went down, for the rest of your life,” says Jon Finkel in How To Propose, The Ultimate Proposal Guide.

There are few times in your life where you have the opportunity to choose in advance what you are going to say, and how you are going to say it. Your proposal is a moment in your life that you and your fiance will talk about… FOREVER!

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, she might even blog about it. This is a pivotal point in your life – the way your friends, family, and even your future children will think of you is entirely in your hands at this moment. In a very subtle way, the way you propose might even be more important than the actual wedding. You have one shot – make it memorable!
