The 5 Biggest Marriage Proposal Mistakes
You fell in love!
Now you can’t stop thinking about how you’re going to pop the question to the love of your life. You want it to be perfect for her; the proposal needs to be everything your future fiancé has ever dreamed of. It can be a little nerve wrecking, we know. But before you start planning out everything you should do, it’s also important to think about all the things you shouldn’t do.
Here’s a list of the biggest proposal mistakes you must avoid!
1. Not Making It Special
Your proposal is going to be a defining moment in your relationship, so even if you’re not the romantic kind, you’ve got to work it out! The simplest way you can make the proposal special is by taking her to a place that holds meaning and happy memories for the both of you. It could be where you first met or where you first confessed your love for each other.
2. Proposing With An Audience
Proposals are best when they’re just between the couple. Popping the question to her in front of family, friends and strangers might be one of the biggest mistakes. She might not be able to enjoy the moment or savor it if she feels uncomfortable being the center of attention. You’ll also want to spend some time in a little love bubble of your own after she’s said yes. Hence, an intimate setting is always better than a public space.
3. Not Keeping It A Secret
Don’t talk openly about the proposal before it’s even done. Your girlfriend might find out about it through mutual friends or family sooner than you wanted her to know. She might also not like the idea of so many people knowing about the engagement before she did.
4. Picking A Bad Time
After you’ve realized that you want to marry her, you’ll probably want to propose as soon as possible. But hold your horses! It might not be the right time. If she’s busy with work, sick or has some other commitments this weekend, proposing is a bad idea. Instead take your time, let things settle and pick the next right moment.
4. Proposing Without A Ring
The biggest proposal mistake you can make is asking her to marry you empty handed. If there’s anything your future fiancé will be expecting from a proposal, it’s a diamond ring. By giving her a diamond ring, you’ll be promising her an eternity of love and affection. The resilient stone will reflect all your memories and hardships your love has overcome.
