With wedding proposal season coming, you may be planning to propose to your significant other. Do you know what to do already?
Other than thinking of a location, buying an engagement ring from a reputable Utah jeweler, and writing a speech, you have a number of other important details to take care of before you propose. Here are some of them:
Before you propose, you must confirm that you both want to be married. You can talk about marriage to know each other’s sentiments on the matter. Talking about other important details about marriage, such as children will also be crucial.
Find Out Expectations
Other than marriage talk, you can slip in proposal talk to know what your partner thinks about proposals. You can plan the proposal easier if you know what your partner wants. Some people like buying engagement rings with their partners. In such a case, you can postpone a trip to a Utah jeweler until after your proposal.
Once you know your partner wants to marry you and you her expectations, you can start practicing. You will want your proposal to go smoothly. Prepare your speech; recite it in front of a friend; and practice saying, “Will you marry me?”
Visit the Future In-Laws
As you practice and plan for the proposal, you can visit your partner’s parents to ask for their blessing. The practice may seem outdated, but it shows respect to your partner and her parents. You can slip this detail into conversations with your partner to know if she would like you to visit her parents before deciding to get married.
Save Up, Size Up, and Research
Of course, you have to buy an engagement ring eventually. You can begin saving up for it in advance. Make sure the sizing is right; research on different styles of engagement rings; and choose the best one for your special someone.
A wedding proposal may be a major decision and undertaking, but it’s well worth all the effort. Refer to this guide as you start planning your proposal.
