Making that final decision to crown your special lady the future Mrs. You is a bold step for any man. A marriage proposal has to be special and well thought if you are to successfully pull it off. This special event could end up a total disaster if you don’t plan well. If you intend to go down on one knee, allow me to save you the embarrassment of getting rejected in public or ending up in an unpleasant situation- let’s dive into the basics of a proper marriage proposal and examine the mistakes you need to avoid.
Ensure Your Timing is Perfect
Most guys don’t know the right time to pop the question. Just because you have had a couple of dates and finally the chemistry is soaring doesn’t mean she is ready for the wife title. Are you ready to propose? That’s the million dollar question a man should ask himself. It’s a two way street in case you are wondering. Both of you must be ready for it before taking that huge step of declaring your love and commitment to a lifetime relationship.
After dating a lady on a serious level for a while, every man should have an idea of how their ladies expect the proposal to be. I know some have very unrealistic expectations but try working around what would please her. Remember, you don’t have to break the bank to make it happen; you can be as creative as her imagination and still remain within your budget.
Surprise Her, Or Don’t
As I have mentioned before, a well-executed proposal has to be well thought out. Question is, would you prefer a style where she has no idea of your intentions until you finally surprise her or you prefer letting her in through hints. You need to thoroughly think through what would work best for you and your partner to avoid blowing the whole proposal thing.
Pay Attention to Detail
Most men don’t spend enough time working through the details of a proposal. If you want to score it with your lady, focus on the special details. This shows her that you actually thought about the entire process and created something special for her. Failing to plan is planning to fail, keep that in mind.
Whatever location, concept and time you end up choosing to propose to your special lady, ensure that you make it meaningful. Don’t get too caught up in the budget and details and forget how special this moment is. Also, try and capture the proposal on camera if possible so you can relive it for years to come
