How on Earth do you plan a proposal that fits you two, excites your partner AND is a story worth telling?
Okay, so you’ve got the ring (or it’s on it’s way) and you’ve already had “The Talk” about marriage. It’s time to nail down how exactly you’re going to do the dang thing and DO IT RIGHT. And by "right" we mean something special and worthwhile! You're only going to propose once, so nailing it is the only option.
Well...Let’s start with the basics...
1. Make it personal
Consider what your future fiance wants. Would they want a grand gesture or maybe something more simple in the comfort of their home? Would they like to be surrounded by friends and family? Or would they want a private little picnic spot in the woods somewhere? Are they the traditional type or more of an adventurous soul?
Remember, it doesn't have to be perfect, just something that FITS.
If your partner isn’t too keen big public displays of affection then consider doing an activity you two do all the time like urban exploring or going the Memphis Botanic Gardens. Just make sure you’re safe keeping the ring in where it won’t fall out along the trip.
Pro tip: Still not quite sure what type of proposal they might like? Talk to one of their friends or family members that your partner is close with and have that friend do a little investigating. Or, you can check out the Knot's 66 ideas here.
2. Make it sentimental
This is important for the "what" and the "where" of proposing. Adding in the things that hold meaning to your partner is are a great way to make the special moment even more personal.
