While traditionalists would promote the guy in a relationship to propose to his girlfriend, the post-modern world welcomes proposals from the female in a relationship. If you want to break the mold and ask for your boyfriend’s hand in marriage, you can create the perfect environment, ambiance and moment in which to say those magic words and propose. Take a look at this ultimate guide to help you secure that all important answer of ‘Yes!’ to your question.
It does not matter whether you are a pragmatic couple or whether you are super lovey dovey and sappy, the chances are that you want your proposal to be a romantic affair. Romance means different things to different couples. If you are home bunnies, adore cozy nights in, and love cooking together, set up a romantic evening in your humble abode. Tidy the house, light some scented candles, put on some achingly cool tunes, and cook a romantic meal. Set the lighting to low and consider how you will present the ring. You could do the movie-style proposal and place the ring in the bottom of a champagne flute or dessert bowl. Or perhaps you want to go the whole hog and get down on one knee with the ring in your hand. Either way, you can create the perfect romantic ambiance for your proposal.
Think About The Ring
If you are proposing to your guy, you might be unsure of the sort of ring to purchase. While a diamond solitaire might not fit, you can craft a custom made ring using great loose diamonds that you can source from a wholesaler. This does not mean that you have to craft a feminine ring. There are plenty of diamond stone inlaid titanium bands that look uber masculine. By signing the ring yourself, you are ensuring that no other human being on the planet will end up wearing the ring that your new fiance has. You are also showing your husband-to-be just how romantic and thoughtful you can be. This can make your proposal even more special.
Do Not Put Pressure On Yourself
Proposing can be incredibly stressful, but this is nothing compared to the wedding! You will be keen to create the ideal moment, but the perfectionist side of you shouldn’t take over. It really is the thought that counts. If you go the whole hog on an extravagant flash-mob, a fly by complete with banner, or a message on the radio, you are not fully in control of the moment. This is where the stress can really embed. Instead, choose something a little simpler for your proposal that you can be fully in control of. This means the responsibility of the proposal lies firmly on your shoulders. You can cook the meal, you can book the intimate table at your favorite restaurant, you can book the weekend away, and you can present the ring to the love of your life.
If you want to take the bull by the horns and you are eager to pop the question to your boyfriend, you should go for it. Follow this guide and you can make your proposal absolutely perfect!
