10 Tips for Popping the Question

Posted on Wednesday, March 29th, 2017 in Guides, Marriage Proposal.

You found your soulmate and are ready to spend the rest of your life with this person. But first you have to ask that one very important question… will you marry me? Proposing marriage is a monumental life event and you’ll want that moment to be perfect. Here are some things to keep in mind when planning your proposal:

  1. Select a memorable location. Whether this spot is a sentimental location (such as the place you two had your first date) or somewhere you’ve never been, make sure to take some time planning where exactly you’ll ask that ever important question.
  2. Hire a photographer. After all, this is a once-in-a-lifetime moment that you’ll want to look back on years from now.
  3. Include loved ones if possible. This means asking for parents’ blessings (if applicable) and letting them be a part of the engagement celebration. Consider planning a little get-together after you propose and invite your families and closest friends. If you do decide to go this route, you must take into consideration this next tip.
  4. Be selective in who you tell. You never know who might slip up and spill the beans. If you want to involve others in the proposal process, we recommend sharing as little details as possible unless you really trust them to keep such a huge secret.
  5. Plan your outfit. This will probably be the last thing on your mind when planning a proposal but it’s an important step to consider. You’ll want to make sure you’re wearing something that will discretely cover the ring box. And try to avoid wearing any outfits that might have holes in the pockets.
  6. Have a backup plan, especially if you’re planning an outdoor proposal. Sometimes, not everything goes as planned, which is why you should always have a backup plan just in case.
  7. Consider proposing earlier in the day. You’ll be less nervous and the two of you can spend the rest of the day together enjoying your engagement.
  8. Tailor the proposal to the person. If your significant other is a private person, you should probably avoid a grand public display of affection and consider something more intimate.
  9. Speak from your heart. There’s no better time to completely lay out your feelings than when your asking someone to spend the rest of your lives together. Now’s not the time to be shy.
  10. Propose with a Kloiber Jewelers engagement ring because you obviously want the answer to be yes!
