Proposing to your girlfriend is an important milestone in your relationship. It’s certainly something you’ve been wanting to do for quite some time. However, your girlfriend has almost certainly been waiting for you to ask the question the longest, so make it count. The marriage proposal is one of the most special events that a couple can share.
One of the first things to do is buy the ring. The engagement ring is the most important part of the whole proposal. It’s vital to choose something fabulous like a cushion-cut rose gold engagement ring. After all, you are professing your undying love for her, so give her a ring that shows her your true feelings.
Proposing puts enormous pressure on a man because he has to make sure the timing is right and the event runs smoothly. Having a beautiful ring in your pocket will definitely reduce your stress level a bit, as you will be ready for the big time. Choose a piece of jewelry that is your style. Rings come in gold, silver, platinum, and many other precious metals.
Once you’ve met with the jeweler and chosen a spectacular cushion cut, princess diamond, or any other variety of diamond ring, it’s time to start thinking about where you’re going to ask. This place must be sentimental, like the restaurant where the two of you had your first date or on a beautiful bridge, overlooking the water at sunset.
When you take your girlfriend to the place where your love began and give her an engagement ring, this means that you are ready to take the next step in your relationship. Your girlfriend will see that you are a person who pays attention to small details, and this will melt her heart.
Up the ante on the proposal by arranging for her friends and family to be present when you ask her to marry you. If you are a bit of a traditional guy, this also allows you to meet with her father beforehand so that you can ask for his daughter’s hand in marriage. This act in itself is extremely special and shows your respectful side.
Friends and family can be with you on the spot or view the proposal from afar. Once your girlfriend accepts your proposal, they can go out for hugs, kisses, and congratulations. This will also give them a chance to gaze at the beautiful silver or rose gold ring you just placed on your finger.
Consider hiring a professional photographer to capture this very special moment in your lives. The photographer can hang out at the proposal site and not be seen by his girlfriend until after the proposal. Once you propose and place the cushion cut ring on her finger, she will be overwhelmed with emotion and the photographer will be able to capture these uninhibited moments.
An added benefit of hiring a photographer is being able to develop and frame the photos to give to your bride on her wedding day as a special token of your love. This simple act will make your new girlfriend overflow with admiration, love, and passion for you.
If the two of you have a special song that has sentimental meaning, consider finding a way to make this music play in the background. Special music sets the mood and provides an intimate setting for your proposal. Once you propose, you can scoop her up in your arms and seal the deal with a kiss and a slow dance.
