Whether you’re currently (and nervously), racking your brains for ideas for the perfect proposal, or are an event planner who puts together this sort of thing, it always helps to have a handy guide of tips at hand. After all, you normally only get to do this once, so it is quite understandable that it must go off without a hitch. However, you also probably have no clue on how to go about it, which is why the following should help kick you off to a great start. No how different your personalities may be, you will be able to set up an unforgettable event; one that would make a forever story to tell your grandkids someday.
Decide Who You Want There
Remember when Kanye West booked out an entire stadium in San Francisco to propose to Kim Kardashian? Who could forget? He famously flew out all her family and friends and hid them there so they could watch the whole thing unfold. Of course this also included a complete orchestra, but that is something for another day. In short, you need to figure out whether you want this to be a private, intimate moment between the two of you, or whether you are happy to share it with loved ones. Try to make sure she is on the same page as you beforehand. You know, just in case!
It would be quite useless to scout out the best engagement rings Melbourne for instance, if you still have not narrowed down a place for the occasion. Yes, this is important. It lays out the setting, the mood and of course the meaning. Some like the more cliché stuff like Eiffel Tower proposals and proposals by other iconic landmarks, but others like to make it more personal. So you could, for example, book her favourite restaurant, take her to her favourite city or simply her favourite spot inthe city. Wherever you choose, remember it must have some meaning behind it for it to hold some worth.
Hire a Photographer
This is a rather subjective requirement, so there is no such thing as a must with it, but more and more people are definitely choosing to opt for this. Hire an expert photographer, who would be able to capture everything, including the look on her face when she realised what is going on. These photographers know how to stay hidden and not expose themselves before they should, allowing you to look back on some priceless memories. However, if you both are again people who prefer absolute privacy, you can choose not to hire one as well.
Set the Mood with Music
There is little that music cannot do. Hence if possible, you should definitely look at putting together a few tracks that are symbolic of your time together, and play them if the location permits. Setting the mood with music is a great way to personalise the experience, and she will absolutely love it. Pick the most significant tracks and create a medley if you will. If you want to take it up a notch, you can plan the whole thing out like a play, so there is something different with every song.
