Once you have bought your engagement ring, you’ll need to start planning. Without a clear plan, your proposal may be a disaster so be sure to check out the tips below and plan a great proposal.
Extravagant vs intimate proposal
Depending on your relationship, you may prefer to go all out with a bang or opt for something low-key and simple. If you’re not sure what your partner may prefer, F.Hinds believe that you’ll be able to know based on their star sign according to their survey.
They revealed that Aries, Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius and Aquarius people would prefer an extravagant proposal. Whereas Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces would prefer a more intimate proposal.
Intimate proposal ideas
Whether you’re basing it off their star sign or simply want to plan an intimate proposal for your own reasons, we’ve got you covered with these lovely ideas.
- Romantic dinner at home – is there anything more romantic than cooking for your partner over a candlelit dinner in the privacy of your own home? Cook their favourite meal, play your song and get down on one knee when the moment feels right.
- Take a trip down memory lane – If you and your partner have a particular spot where you visit a lot or maybe even fell in love here, this can be a great place to pop the question. Your love for each other will be boosted and then when they say yes, this spot will have even more significance.
- Connect with nature – the outdoors has some truly breathtaking views that could be the perfect backdrop to your proposal and you’ll have the privacy you desire. Take them on a romantic walk and when it feels right, you know what to do.
- Book a weekend away – Plan a weekend away for just the two of you to a secluded place where no one else is in sight. A cabin in the woods can be an ideal choice as you cosy up by the fire and ask the question, you’ll both feel highly connected making it all the better.
Once you’ve popped the question, you’ll need to be ready for the wedding planning so be sure you understand how to get married and get ready for one of the biggest days of your lives.
