Tips for a Perfect Proposal

proposal photo proposal1_zps5fe00c26.jpg

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!

Romantic: If your fiancé to be is a true romantic at heart what would be more perfect than a romantic evening stroll or a horse drawn carriage ride around the park, stopping at the band stand that is lit with candles, rose petals scattered and the champagne waiting on ice for you both. Once she has gotten over the shock, tell her exactly what she means to you and how much you love her and want to spend the rest of your life together and ask her to be your future wife. If you want to go completely romantic and over the top have some music playing or a slide show of your life together so far.

 photo Untitled_11d82ccbb1bfbc3094ed250_zps8f60b659.jpgQuirky: For the lady who likes things a little out of the ordinary but still romantic then why should her proposal be any different. When you are both out doing of shopping make an excuse that you have to collect a surprise for her and that you will meet her at a certain place in 20 minutes.
This will give you time to change and get things set up properly. While she is waiting for you, organise a flash mob to start dancing, let her see you join in with them and then at the end of the routine get down on one knee and ask your lucky lady to marry you.

If this is not quirky enough for you why not get strangers to walk up to her one at a time with a single red rose with a note saying a word that reminds you of her, for example loveable, funny, kind, ice-cream or shoes…it could be anything. And with the twelfth red rose you could be down on one knee and propose to her.

 photo Crafty250_zps7b61138f.jpgCrafty: If the love of your life is always making something, why not take a leaf out of her book and get some inspiration for the perfect proposal.  You could put a scrap book together of happy memories from your relationship and on the last page you could have a picture of you down in one knee with the ring and when she looks over at you, be down on your knee with the ring wearing the same thing as you were in the photo.

Another craft orientated proposal would be to gather all your friends and family together and record each of them individually, telling you what they like best about you both as a couple. Arrange for this to be done in a familiar setting with each person pretending to hold something in their hand and passing it on to another person, then the last person passes it to you and you say how special you are as a couple and everything you love about her and when she looks at you be down on one knee and have the ring in your hand like you did the video and open your hands to revel the perfect engagement ring and ask her to marry you.

A family orientated proposal: For a more family orientated marriage proposal, wait to propose to your fiancé until all her family and friends are in your company, tell her you have forgotten something and leave the room.  When returning back in to the room give her a large gift wrapped box, with a number of smaller gift wrapped boxes inside, until she get to the last box which is the ring box. At that point get down on one knee and ask her to spend the rest of her life with you.

A more private and reserved proposal: If your love is not a fan of the big public proposals, why not opt for something private yet as elaborate and romantic. Tell her that you are bringing her out to dinner to a fancy restaurant for a romantic dinner. Ok so you have two options at this point.
You could arrange for a private room in her favourite restaurant and have it romantically decorated, and have the champagne on ice. Once you are settled at the table you could begin by telling her how wonderful  and thoughtful she is and that is why you want to spend the rest of your life together, then get down on one knee and ask her to marry you and present her with the perfect engagement ring.

The other option is to arrange with the jewellers (which we would be more than happy to arrange)  for a private ring selection after hours or have a room set up with flowers and champagne for your lucky lady to select her own ring in private. To keep it a surprise, tell her to close her eyes that you have a surprise for her, and tell her to open them once you are in the private ring selection room. This way you won’t have the stress of having to pick the ring.
