You’ve seen a lot of successes in your life, but there’s one thing you’ve yet to accomplish: getting the love of your life to say “yes.” Popping the question is no doubt a once-in-a-lifetime event, one that requires a lot of planning and preparation. And, aside from the day you get married and the day your first child is born, asking a woman to marry you is very significant milestone. That’s why we rounded up four important tips to help you stage a successful wedding proposal she can’t say “no” to.
Ask for her parents’ approval. Your girlfriend shouldn’t be the first person to hear your proposal—it should be her parents. After all, these are the people who raised her, and they need to know that the man she’s spending eternity with will love and care for her as much as they do. Besides, seeking their permission first will score you major pogi points and make it easier for you to assimilate into her family.
Get the perfect engagement ring. If you’ve been talking about getting married for some time, she may have already dropped hints about her ideal engagement ring. But just to be sure, get her friends to do a bit of detective work for you—she’ll be less suspicious if the one asking details is her girlfriend. Also, take a look at her current jewelries; these should yield clues about her taste for rings. Regarding how much the ring should cost, three months’ worth of gross salary is the norm. However, this is just a ballpark figure; the price of the ring really doesn't matter, because the message it symbolizes is priceless.
Be creative. From the place where you plan to pop the question, to certain personal touches you want to add to this special day, don't hold back on making this moment an expression of your creative side. You want to make a memorable moment for you and your woman, so think of things that you find important for you both—a special place you share, somewhere you both want to visit, food that you both like or want to try, activities that make both of you excited—make it a moment that both of you can truly share.
Keep it special. The secret to doing so is to know your girl's personality—by now you should know! Is she extroverted and does she draw energy from being around poeple? Then maybe a public proposal in front of loads of people might work. Is she more of an introvert? Then perhaps an intimate moment where only the two of you are involved will be more special for her. Remember: this is your moment to shine, but this is the special moment she's been secretly anticipating. Keep it special, and make it memorable for her by knowing what she's like.
