October 3, 2019 • 5 min read
At some point in your relationship, the idea of proposing will play on your mind eventually. After finding the love of your life, it is only natural to want to make it official and spend the rest of your life with your partner.
And considering you are reading this article, it is safe to say you have at least considered proposing to your loved one!
Of course, such a big gesture may get you feeling overwhelmed – but this is where we step in! Such a romantic and important milestone in your life shouldn’t be a hassle, and with a passion for engagements, Midas Jewellery wants to help make your proposal a hit.
To know what you need to remember when you propose, keep reading below.
The most important thing to make sure of before you propose is to confirm you are ready. Marriage is exciting and a wonderful milestone that will come with a lot of life changes. But before you pop the question, you should make sure you are ready to commit to your loved one.
This means taking the time to know whether this is definitely what you want and who you want to spend your life with.
A great way to confirm this is to discuss it with a close loved one you trust. This will be sure to deliver you clarity about whether or not you are making the right decision or that it is the ideal time.
If you are certain you want to spend the rest of your life with your partner, you should also be certain whether it is the right time to propose.
Are they ready to take your relationship to the next level? If you are sure it is the perfect time to propose, then congratulations! Now you can consider planning your big moment.
When it comes to pulling off the most memorable of proposals, a lot of planning can come into play. In saying that, an impromptu proposal when the time is right is always fun and spontaneous. But for those who want to ensure everything runs smoothly, planning and being prepared is key.
From how you are going to propose to when you will ask the exciting question, it is important you have all the details organised.
By planning ahead, you can tick off all the important things such as asking permission from your future in-laws to preparing a cover story that will lead you to the right time.
You may also want to plan other features you want to incorporate into your proposal. Whether you would like to have props present or a photographer hidden, ready to take candid images, it is a good idea to consider what you will need.
If you want to get family and friends joining in on the surprise, then this is also a good opportunity to give them a heads up and let them know how you will like them to play a role in your proposal.
