Be Romantic and Traditional

If you want to propose with style, you need to be very romantic and traditional, but also a little creative. You may think buying flowers is old-fashioned, but a bouquet of red roses is a cliché that somehow always works and it will definitely have a positive effect on her. Another traditional rule she will want you to respect is going down on one knee. With this comes the ring, of course! Even if you want her to choose the sparkler later, do find something to slip on her finger that day. Whether it is a fashionable trinket ring or a silly plastic toy, we are convinced it will make her happy and emotional! And make sure to mention the words: “will you marry me”. Don’t distort the question in any way because these words are literally magical when put in this exact order.

Add A Personal Touch

When planning your proposal, have your future bride in mind. Think about things she loves and use them as a source of inspiration. You can learn to play her favourite song on a guitar, hide the ring in a box of chocolates she adores, or take her to a favourite destination and pop the question on the beach! You have to be a little original even if you are planning a simple dinner. This is your chance to show her your romantic side, so make the most of it and let it be a surprise!
