Okay, you’re taking the plunge—you’re getting married. The first order of business is that of the ring. After considering a modern solitaire, you’ve decided on a beguiling vintage sapphire and diamond with a rose gold setting. However, you’re not off the hook just yet. You still have to sort out the how’s, the when’s, and the where’s of biggest ask of your life—the proposal. The pressure to make this single event perfect can be overwhelming. Here is some inspiration to make your moment special.
Know your Audience
By now, you should have a pretty good understanding of your fiancé. Carefully consider what approach your significant other would appreciate most, especially if organizing a public flash mob could result in panic. Be it a hotel rooftop overlooking the soft twinkle of city lights, a private terrace with a romantic view of the brilliant orange Grecian sunset, or a slyly coordinated dinner party with your closest friends, tailor the atmosphere to the likes of your partner.
Make it Personal
Let the intimate details of your relationship shape your proposal. Harken back to the place you met for an emotionally charged setting. Consider sharing the experience with children or pets of your new blended family. Or, capture your story and create a custom picture book complete with a happily-ever-after proposal ending.
Keep things fresh and plan a Sip and Paint date where you incorporate the asking into your masterpiece. Borrow a shop window or gallery space to exhibit favorite photos of your time together and pop the question as you happen by on your way to dinner. Or, keep it simple and plant a sweet proposal inside of a fortune cookie during a cozy and comfortable movie night at home.
Be it at the summit of a mountain or the top of a Farris wheel, the proposal should be authentic, from the heart, and uniquely yours.
