Pop The Big Question in a Personal Way

So you’ve found the love of your life. How do you go about popping The Big Question? A survey done by The Knot of more than 14,000 people found that a quarter or proposers planned meticulously what they were going to say and do, spending on average 4 months planning their proposal. There are hundreds of ways to ask someone to marry you. You might want to shout it from the rooftops. Or perhaps you want to sit down in an intimate restaurant. The most important thing though is to pop the question in a way that is personal and special.

Where you first met

Think about where you first met your partner, or where you had your first date. How about going back and revisiting this memory that was the start of the rest of your lives together? Even if the first time you both went for a drink together, was at the dive bar in the next town, it is still unique to you both. Perhaps you went bowling and had fish and chips together, or got dinner and a movie. It is a wonderful idea to recreate your first date together and at the end of the evening ask the all-important question. You can even use a Date Box to enhance your experience, you could even hide the all-important engagement ring in the box to create a wonderful surprise.

Visit somewhere you’ve both dreamed of

Every couple has joint aspirations of somewhere that they’d like to visit together. Maybe you’ve always talked about going to New York. Or maybe you always wanted to see the ocean at St Petersburg together. Well, how about arranging that trip as a surprise and then proposing whilst you are there? It will certainly be a vacation that will go down in your personal history. Make sure you organize your proposal setting in advance. A rooftop proposal overlooking a city can make a wonderful backdrop to ask your partner for their hand in marriage. You can even get the professionals to help, making sure everything is perfect, from the flowers to the champagne and the music.

Arrange a proposal dinner party

Asking the love of your life to marry you is a momentous occasion. Arranging a dinner party with close family and friends can be a wonderful setting for your proposal. On the menu should be all of your favorite foods that you have shared together. Don’t forget to put the music that is special to you both on in the background. Sharing your marriage intentions with the other people that are important in your life is really personal and heartwarming. There won’t be a dry eye in the house.
