How to Upgrade Your Marriage Proposal

Marriage Proposal Upgrades

A marriage proposal should be special and memorable for both you and your partner. There are many ways to accomplish this, but an easy way to make your proposal a day she’ll never forget is by adding enhancements to your already great idea! Our marriage proposal planners put together a list of some easy ways you can enhance your proposal below:

Luxurious Ride

If you’re proposal entails traveling to a certain spot or venue, why not whisk your partner away in a special ride. We often suggest hiring a limo driver to add extra romance to your proposal.

Decorations

Decorations can be an important part of a marriage proposal. We suggest working with a florist to make sure your idea comes to life. If you’re on a budget, there are great DIY decorations you can add to your proposal. Whatever you decide to do, just make sure it’s creative and special to your partner. Some great ideas include candles, rose petals, memories in picture frames, photos, and signs.

Ring Stash Box

To keep your proposal a surprise, we suggest using a flat engagement ring box like the one from Ring Stash. Most ring boxes are big and bulky and your partner will instantly see the box in your pants. If you use a flat or thin ring box, your partner will never see the proposal coming!

Musician

There’s something so special about proposals that have live music. You can hire a variety of musicians including a guitarist, a cappella groups, or even violinists. An even better idea is if you have musical talents yourself. Write a song or sing her favorite song before you propose!

As you can see, there are many ways you can take your proposal idea from good to great! If you’re thinking about proposing soon, hire one of our expert marriage proposal planners to make sure your proposal is one she’ll never forget!

Pros and Cons to a Valentine’s Day Proposal

Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day is around the corner and it’s no surprise it’s a popular time to propose. It’s a day filled with love and celebrations, but for some people getting engaged on February 14th can feel tacky. If you’re thinking about planning a marriage proposal this Valentine’s Day, we’ve put together a list of pros and cons to help you decide.

Pros

Romance

Love is in the air on this holiday, so it can make planning a proposal a little easier. On Valentine’s Day most places you go to will already have dim lighting, decorations, and pre-fixed menus to help your proposal feel romantic.

Good Cover

The great thing about proposing on Valentine’s Day is that your partner will never see it coming! There’s nothing suspicious about going somewhere special on this day, and she’ll be surprised when you turn your date into a marriage proposal.

You’ll Remember The Date

Let’s face it; men can sometimes forget important dates. If you plan a Valentine’s Day proposal you’ll be sure to always remember the anniversary of when you popped the question!

Cons

Not Original

Some women feel that planning a proposal on Valentine’s Day is tacky and not original. If you do plan on proposing, make sure you do something unique that’s not too cliché.

Not Alone

There are many other couples out celebrating on Valentine’s Day so it may be hard to find privacy. Also keep in mind that other proposals may happen at the same time as yours.

Expensive

Roses, champagne and chocolates are on high demand during this holiday, so make sure to plan ahead. Many venues end up charging more and most restaurants have a pre-fixed menu that’s typically more expensive than you may have planned for.

Planning a Valentine’s Day proposal can be challenging, but our team of expert marriage proposal planners can help make sure everything runs smoothly. Contact us now and start planning your proposal today!

3 Tips to Pull Off The Perfect Proposal

Marriage Proposal

When it comes time to plan a marriage proposal, it can be hard to think about everything you need to do to ensure it’s successful and something your partner will love. There are many steps to take when planning your proposal, and we’ve put together a list of our top 3 tips to help you pull off the perfect proposal!

  1. Keep it a surprise

Keeping the surprise element of a marriage proposal is important because it adds to the romance factor. In order to keep your partner from finding out about the big day, tell as few people as possible. It’s also a great idea to purchase a thin engagement ring box from Ring Stash. Most engagement ring boxes are very bulky and your partner will see it in your pocket, but the ring box from Ring Stash lays flat in your pants so it’s undetectable.

  1. Find the perfect location

This is one of the most important decisions when planning your marriage proposal. Find a location that is romantic but also special to your relationship, like the place where you had your first date, or your favorite vacation spot. Make sure you take the time to plan ahead and find out if the location is public or private, and if you need to pay any fees to use the space.

  1. Incorporate Keepsakes

In order to make your proposal one she’ll never forget, incorporate special memories from your relationship. Many of our clients use personal photos, display love messages on easels, and incorporate keepsakes. The most important part of the proposal is to make sure it’s special and unquiet to your love story.

Your proposal is going to be a moment both you and your partner will never forget. If you want to ensure everything goes as planned, hire one of our expert marriage proposal planners and we’ll make sure your proposal dreams come true! Contact us here to start planning your marriage proposal today!

Christmas Proposal Tips

Winter Proposal Ideas

Christmas is one of the most intimate holiday’s of the year. There’s a crisp chill in the air, hot chocolate, cozy fireplaces, and twinkling lights. It’s no wonder it’s also the most popular time of the year to pop the question! You’re surrounded by romance and even better it’s usually a time of year when family comes together to celebrate!

If you’re thinking of proposing this season, here’s our top tips to planning a christmas marriage proposal:

Be Festive

The great part about Christmas is that there’s already so many beautiful decorations that it makes planning a proposal much easier. Incorporate a beautiful lit tree, twinkle lights, holiday music, and even winter staples like hot chocolate.

Use Seasonal Flowers

In the wintertime, there are many beautiful blooms to choose from, but be aware that some flowers like peonies aren’t in season. Also roses can be more expensive during the winter so use flowers at their peak like ranunculus and amaryllis. You can also use bouquets that are great for winter proposals with icy greenery and cool tones.

Avoid Crowded Areas

If you plan to propose in a public area be cautious of the crowds. Christmas can be a very busy time of year especially if you plan to propose at an ice-skating rink, public Christmas tree, or even a restaurant. Take the time to plan ahead to make sure your proposal is timed accordingly and to avoid overly crowded areas.

Back-Up Plan

Christmas is the number one time of the year to propose. It’s important you have a back-up proposal plan in case someone else proposes right before you. This is more likely to happen if you plan your proposal at a public-crowded place like a tree farm, but it’s important to plan ahead for any and all obstacles.

As you can see there’s a lot to think about when planning a Christmas proposal. Our team of expert marriage proposal planners can help make your dream proposal come to life! Contact us today for a customized proposal or check out our easy and affordable marriage proposal packages!

Should You Include Family in the Proposal?

Including your family and friends in a marriage proposal is becoming a popular trend. While a proposal is a very intimate moment between two people, having family present is a nice way to celebrate after you pop the question.

Can’t decide what to do? We’ve made a list of pro’s and cons to help you decide if you should include family when planning your marriage proposal.

PRO’s

Including family is a great way to make the proposal one she’ll never forget. A marriage proposal that includes her close family is sure to be special to her heart. You will have created this amazing memory for her that includes some of her favorite people.

Another pro if you decide to include her family in the proposal, is that you’ll get help planning from the people who know her best! They can help you brainstorm ideas and create a proposal that she’s sure to love.

CONS

Let’s face it; family members can have a hard time keeping a secret! The more family and friends you invite, the more likely it is to ruin the surprise.

Also some family members may bring negative energy. It’s important to make sure all family members invited are happy for you. You don’t want a sour cousin ruining your special day.

If you do chose to invite family to your proposal, choose members that you know will keep a secret and work with you to make it a special day. Choose the closest family members that you know you can trust!

Also make sure your loved one is comfortable being proposed to in front of others. Some people prefer a more private, intimate proposal that involves just the two of you.

How to Plan a Beach Proposal in Winter

When you think of a beach proposal, you think of warm rays shining on your face, a glistening ocean, waves crashing, and running your toes through the sand right? During the fall and winter months a beach proposal may look a little different. For one, the sand is usually pretty cold and you may need to wear shoes, but a beautiful proposal can still be accomplished. In fact, there are benefits to having your beach proposal during the winter months; less crowded, crisp air, and golden hour sunsets are just a few things that come to mind. Here’s our top tips from our marriage proposal planners on how to plan a beach proposal in the winter:

Prepare for the weather

During the winter months near the ocean, it can be quite chilly. There’s a breeze from the ocean and as the sun goes down the air gets cool and crisp. Make sure to bring extra blankets and shawls to bundle up together as you relax in the sand. It’s a great way to spend time snuggling as you celebrate your proposal!

Bring warm snacks and drinks

Bring a thermos of hot chocolate, tea, or coffee to enjoy as you watch the sunset together and take in the amazing views.

Prepare for early sunset

In the winter months, the sun sets much earlier, so prepare your proposal time accordingly. If you’re feeling ambitious, you can even bring lanterns and twinkle lights to stay after sunset. Another great idea is to make a beach fire after sunset. This is another great way to continue to enjoy the beach as it cools down.

As you can see, a beach proposal in the winter can still be romantic. If you’re ready to plan a beach proposal this season, contact Proposal Ideas today, and we’ll help bring your vision to life!

Should You Include Your Dog in Your Proposal?

Including your dog in your proposal

If you have a dog you want to include in your marriage proposal, there are plenty of romantic ways to include him or her without taking away from the moment. As you look for memorable proposal ideas, take a look at our checklist for the best ways to include your dog in your engagement.

Do: Create an Adorable Message for Your Dog

If your dog is an important part of your relationship, there are plenty of adorable roles you can give him or her. Consider creating a custom collar or bandana that says something like “will you marry my dad?” This can be an adorable way to start your proposal as she walks into a venue filled with flowers, photos, and candles. When she sees your dog and his message, this is your time to take the lead and start expressing your emotions before getting down on one knee.

This not only makes the proposal a family affair, but you’ll have plenty of swoon-worthy moments that will make for beautiful photography.

Don’t: Surprise Her with a Puppy

As much as she loves puppies, surprising her with a brand new puppy and an engagement might take away from the beauty of your proposal. Unless the two of you have talked in length about the idea of getting a puppy, springing this type of responsibility on her during your proposal might add some unneeded stress, especially on a day that’s supposed to be full of romance and magic!

Do: Include Your Dog in Engagement Photos

If you don’t want to include your dog in the actual proposal, you can still create some memories by including him in your engagement photos. A “family” photo as you hug your dog will show the love and connection the three of you share. You can also create a fun sign saying “she said yes!” or “my parents are getting married” that your dog can hold from his mouth.

These photos can also be a fun way to announce your engagement to family and friends on social media!

Don’t: Trust Your Dog with the Ring

As much as you love your dog, tying the ring around his collar or trusting the dog to carry the ring to you is a lot of responsibility–and it can be nervewracking! Unless your dog is extremely well-trained and can handle this sort of task, it might be best to hold onto the diamond yourself with a compact engagement ring box that can be hidden easily in your pocket.

If you’re ready to plan a romantic proposal that incorporates your dog, contact Proposal-Ideas.com to get started!
