It’s that moment everyone talks about…’you know when you know’ 

You found the right person, you purchased the ring (with lots of helpful hints) and now you want to create a proposal of his/her dreams. A moment that will be shared with family, friends and future kids. Where do you start? What needs to be planned? 

We’ve made a list of 10 things to ask yourself when planning a proposal… 

  1. Ask yourself is this what I really want?  Joking 
  2. Where do you want to propose? Inside, outside, hotel room, by the beach. Options are endless. Pick somewhere picturesque, has a special memory and caters for the type of proposal you’re after 
  3. Is it an intimate proposal? Do you want to celebrate with family and friends after? Where will you meet up with everyone? Do you need to book a venue that family and friends can visit? 
  4. Timing! Timing is everything. What part of the day do you want to propose. At sunset, after dinner etc.? 
  5. You will need an accomplice to help navigate the day, organize everyone else so you’re not stressing or give the secret away 
  6. Will there be entertainment? You can play your favourite song at the exact moment you get down on one knee 
  7. Photographer. Get a photographer on board to capture the moment they walk in, to the moment they say YES! 
  8. How will you set-up the space? Is there a grand entry? Will they see those magical words ‘will you marry me?’, flowers and candles everywhere, confetti and fireworks when she says ‘YES’? 
  9. How will you celebrate after? With catering and champagne.
  10. Last, but not least. Effort goes a long way, they will see all your hard work and remember how you made them feel.
