So you’ve bought the engagement ring and you’re READY to pop the question! CONGRATULATIONS!! But now you might be wondering just HOW to propose! Here are some of my tips for making your proposal one that they’ll be proud to tell all of their friends about!
How to Propose in Style!
First, let’s talk about the WHERE. Think about the memory. Think about the stories that you’ll tell your friends. When someone asks “how did they propose??” you’ll want to come across as the ultimate romantic and hero of the story! So WHERE do you want that to be? Do you two like sporting events? Maybe the theater? Maybe you just like to go for walks or hikes or coffee shops? Whatever you decide, always try to make the spot where you propose a memorable one that really means a lot to WHO the two of you are as a couple!
Dressing the Part
Alright, now that you have a place, you need a story. Even though you might be the “fly by the seat of your pants” kind of people, this is a proposal! It’s special, and therefore you’re going to want to look special! Even if you’re going hiking, you don’t want her to have mascara on her face and hair that she hasn’t washed in 3 days. Trust me. You’ll have to work something in there that doesn’t make them suspicious, but make them want to look good! You will 100% be taking a photo that day, and when you look back at it, all you want to see is that engagement ring, NOT how scruffy you both look!
A Proposal to Remember
I can’t say this enough, but if you can swing having a professional photographer capture your moment, DO IT! This one moment in time will go by so fast, and emotions will be flying, and chances are it will be like an out of body experience and you’ll have a hard time remembering EXACTLY how your proposal went! That’s where I come in! having a photographer there will not only help you relive the day you proposed, but it’s a great gift to give your new FIANCE! Trust me.
Not only will a photographer get some bomb images of your proposal, but they can also help you with your story! TRUTH, I completely faked giving away a photo session to a couple. I got them out in the woods, and boom! They both looked amazing, they went somewhere memorable, and it was a COMPLETE surprise!
I would LOVE to help you out with your own proposal! If you’ve got an engagement ring burning a hole in your pocket, and you just need a little help pulling it all together, go ahead and give me a call! I’m here for you, and together we can give your future fiancé a gift that they’ll love FOREVER!
