A marriage proposal hopefully will only happen once in your lifetime, so you will want it to be perfect. To help you out, here are a few proposal ideas! Remember nothing quite says "I Love You" more than a heart warming proposal, so preparation is key! So focus and take your time.
1. Is there a sentimental location which will spring romance in the air?
Restaurant, coffee shop where you had your first date? The Street where you held hands, or the spot where you first said "I love you" sealed with an unforgettable kiss! Going back to that location now as the setting for your proposal will score high points and the "YES!" you were looking to hear!
2. Family and friends share in this moment
The proposal could be just the two of you, with closest loved ones just out of view, looking on from a nearby location waiting for you to pop the question and as she says "yes," wave for a big congratulations and celebrations. A lovely, intimate moment alone and then have all your nearest people be apart of the happiest moment in any persons life! After life is not about the number of breaths you take but about the Rock that took her breath away!
3. Let there be music and light!
Is there a song that is meaningful to the both of you? Or, does she remember the first song you ever slow-danced to? Having a sweet tune playing in the background elevates your proposal to "unforgettable" status. To further the setting for this unforgettable experience candles add a classy yet elegant touch!
4. Speak from the heart.
Make your proposal truly one-of-a-kind. Tell her what you love about her, yes, but also tell her when you knew she was The One. If you told your best friend after your first date or it was that crucial gut reaction that told you she was the one for you, then add that to your proposal! Avoid reading just words from a written speech because it never does sound right, may sound too awkward or lose that connection.
5. Don't forget to breathe!
Speak slowly, and if she sheds some tears make sure you have tissues to the rescue!
