If you have found the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, the next step is to pop the question. Bending the knee can be a nerve-wracking experience. There is no right or wrong way to propose, but there are a few things to think about beforehand. Here is a short guide to help you propose to your soul mate.
Pick the Perfect Ring
Although you may think that you know your partner like the back of your hand, some people are very particular when it comes to jewelry. Before making a purchase, get a second opinion from someone you know very well. Perhaps there is someone close to both of you who can offer advice. At the very minimum, you should speak to a family member or someone who you trust. When it comes to size, try to scope out your partner’s jewelry collection and see if you can find a ring that fits perfectly on their ring finger. Glam Jewelry has a wide array of cute engagement rings that will wow your loved one. From contemporary styles to traditional rings, you will find the perfect piece of jewelry that will make your love well up and say ‘yes’.
Choose the Best Setting
The best setting is different for all couples, and so you need to have a good, hard think about what the perfect spot could be for both of you. Your loved one may have spoken about their dream proposal spot, in which case the hard work is already done for you. However, for most people, this simply isn’t the case. A romantic idea would be to propose at an old haunt which you both love. Or perhaps you could revisit the place where you both fell in love for the first time. If you want to go down that route, then pick a place that has sentimental value for both of you. Alternatively, you could choose a place with a stunning view or propose while doing something you both love. For example, if you both love SCUBA diving, then an underwater proposal could be the ideal choice for you.
Find the Right Words
So you have thought about it thoroughly, you’ve picked out a beautiful ring, and you’ve chosen the perfect spot, next you need to find the right words. Although the other details are all very important, the most vital step to a proposal is working out how to express your feelings to your love and actually popping the question. You don’t need to write a speech, although that may prove useful for some people. All you need to do is to think about the time you have spent together and why you want to share the rest of your life with this person. If you are nervous, then jotting down a few notes will help you with the build-up to the question. On the day of the proposal, just go with your instincts and speak from the heart.
