As you all know we think #loverocks, there is just something about the romance and the excitement! Are you thinking of spreading a little love and excitement by proposing? Then why not take some inspiration from her favourite romantic movie! Some girl’s dream of a picture perfect proposal, and it can be hard to live up to their expectation, but not to worry we have compiled some picture perfect proposal straight from the movies, for you to take some inspiration from.

Place a big box on the rose petals with a note that reads “Open Me!” Place wrapped boxes inside boxes and in the last box place the empty ring box, then come out asking her to marry you.

He’s Just Not That Into You: Some girls dream of a simple but meaningful proposal! So why not take some inspiration from the movie ‘He’s Just Not That Into You’ because who could forget Neil (Ben Affleck) proposing to Beth (Jennifer Aniston) by hiding a ring in a pair of old trousers. Plant the idea for a clear out to make some room in the wardrobe, and place the engagement ring in the pocket of an old pair of jeans that she will throw out…but make sure she checks the pocket! And if the clear out is a no go, place the ring in your favourite jeans and ask your lucky lady to wash them for tonight because you are taking her for dinner! And again make sure that she checks the pockets and you are there when she does!

Wedding Singer: Some ladies love the idea of a public proposal and how could you get anything more romantic than being sang to over the intercom on a plane. However, if you are not taking a flight together not to worry, you could come in to the room singing the song from the ‘Wedding Singer’ and playing the guitar. If you don’t play the guitar you could learn or just play the sound track in the back ground, and not to worry if you can’t sing…it’s all about the words of the song not your voice.

Sweet Home Alabama: Let’s be honest what woman’s heart didn’t melt when Andrew (Patrick Dempsey) took Melanie (Reese Witherspoon) to Tiffany’s after-hours, and got down on one knee in the shop?  As if that wasn’t romantic enough, the proposal really hit fantasyland when he gestured to every diamond and said, “Pick one.” Average guys don’t stand a chance after that, however, still take your lucky lady to the jewellers after hours preferably through the back entrance in order to keep the surprise. Once you are in the shop switch the light on to reveal the rings and you down on one knee. Arrange for the jewellers to display rings within your price range. This will still give the illusion of picking any ring she wants but within your budget.

Tips for a Perfect Proposal

At Rocks we love valentines day, it is such a romantic time of year . There are so many things that make this time of year so special and that is why it is the perfect backdrop to ask the special question.

Don’t get overwhelmed and carried away in the moment, for any engagement to be perfect it needs some planning. So here at Rocks we have put together some tips to help you with the perfect proposal. We will also point out some possible pitfalls you may encounter and how to avoid them.

1. Tell only those who need to know! First, take advantage of the surprise element that may occur. Tell only those who need to know. Parents would be on the top of the list, however, if there happens to be a chatty mum or dad then tell the other parent. You may even want to show them the ring; they may have some advice for the proposal.

2. Deciding on the perfect Ring. Unless you two have already shopped for engagement rings, you probably are not sure what type ring to pick. If this is the case take a look at her other rings, take her lifestyle and personality in to consideration, and if all else fails fish for some information about what she expects in a perfect ring. Don’t be hurt or upset if she decides to change the ring you have chosen, remember she has to wear it forever. Check with the jeweller that you can exchange the ring before you purchase it. But chances are she’ll keep the ring you chose.

3. Where to propose? If you are a both big family people than you may feel like you need to have them nearby. But remember this is meant to be a special moment for just the two of you. If the beach has been a special place for the two of you then take a walk along the beach and have ‘will you marry me?’ written in the sand. Another option would be in the living room in front of your family and friends and an open fire, where a dinner proposal is also nice and traditional.

4. What to wear. Yes, what you wear matters, as you only get to do this once! And you want her to remember the moment. Depending on where and how you decide to propose a suit adds an extra bit of romance, otherwise you could wear a nice pair of jeans and a shirt.

5. What to say. Think over what to say but do not over rehearse it! Tell her how you feel and what she means to you. And yes, you should say I love you! And say it on one knee!

6. How to say it.  If you decide to do something a little different that’s great but remember YOU still have to ask the question.

7. When to say it. Pick a time when you think she is relaxed. When she’s ranting about work is probably is not the right time to ask her to marry you. If she is a morning person, surprise her with breakfast and a ring. Maybe there is a special dinner or party you are attending, on your way out the door tell her that she is missing something, get down on one knee and ask her to marry you…now she has the perfect accessory!

8. Be yourself. Although these suggestions are meant to help, be yourself. She loves you for who you are!

9. Seal the deal with a kiss!

We hope this will help you with your perfect proposals!
