So, you’re ready to propose but you’re not sure where to start with the planning? Not to worry, you’ve come to the right place!
Here at Valentina engagement rings, we’re not just engagement ring experts – but we know a thing or two about proposals as well.
Keep reading, and you’ll find everything you need to know to plan a proposal that your partner will never forget!
Step 1: Have a chat and a think
Before you go ahead and start buying engagement rings, you need to understand where you stand on marriage. Ask yourself if you actually want to get married and what marriage means to you. It’s important that you understand this about yourself before moving forward. Once you’ve come to grips with your own thoughts and ideas, it’s time to check in with your partner. What are their thoughts on marriage? Do they even want to get married? You need to make sure you both see eye to eye on a lot of these ideas before moving forward.
Step 2: Check-in with the family
The days of asking permission have passed. However, it never hurts to make sure you’ve got the inlaws onside. Before dropping to one knee, get in touch with your partners family and let them know about your intentions. If you’ve purchased a ring already or have a rough plan, let them know about this too as they’d love to hear it. This gesture will likely earn their respect and their blessing!
Step 3: Go Shopping
Now you’ve got your ducks in a row, it’s time to go shopping. If you’re not certain what ring to get – we can help! We can help you find an engagement that will delight your partner and be the envy of their friends. We have something to suit all tastes and budgets, so all you need to do is select your dream ring and we’ll take care of the rest.
Step 4: Draw up your plans
With the family blessing and the perfect ring ready and waiting, now comes the fun part. The trick to planning a proposal isn’t copying what you’ve seen others do. Instead, it’s about making it about the two of you. Start by looking back at your relationship and seeing if there are any romantic moments you can recreate – perhaps your first date? Maybe a romantic holiday you took? Use these moments for inspiration, rather than social media, and you can’t go wrong!
Step 5: Be Vulnerable
Take a moment to think about what you actually want to say when proposing. Your nerves will be high, you’ll be feeling a lot, so it might not be the best time to improvise. Instead, write some ideas down of how much your partner means to you, and why you want to spend your life with them. Keep the humour to the minimum as well!
There you have it! Follow these steps and you’ll plan an unforgettable proposal. Good luck and we hope to hear from you soon!
