Planning the perfect proposal is an exciting endeavor. Of course, it can also be a bit daunting. After all, you want to make sure every detail is just perfect, right? This is the biggest question you’ll ask in your life. Fortunately, we know a thing or two about engagements, and that’s why we’re sharing a few more tips, today, about how to plan a dream proposal. It doesn’t have to be complicated or scary. Finding each other was the hard part, really. Now the fun begins!
Make a Reservation, or Rent a Venue
Once you’ve found and purchased the perfect ring, the next step in planning the perfect proposal is to figure out where to pop the question. Think about the places your girlfriend loves the most, and use those as a starting point.
For instance, if you met at your alma mater, why not schedule a return trip to the campus where your story started? Did you hit it off over after work drinks? Go back to the bar you had your first date at.
You also need to decide whether to propose publically or privately. Not all couples like the idea of a proposal witnessed by crowds of strangers!
If you’d like a more intimate setting, consider your favorite hiking trail, your own apartment, or even renting a special event venue, where you could pop the question in a beautiful, romantic location.
Find a Way to Capture the Moment
Finally, it is a great idea to hire a photographer or videographer to capture this life-changing moment, for the two of you. That way, once your nerves have settled, you can relive this memory, and share it with friends and family, along with the happy news of your betrothal, that is!
