If you’re planning on proposing to the special lady in your life, you might be feeling slightly nervous. There are so many different possibilities and it can be difficult to know which one is the right choice. If you’re curious about engagement planning, this blog is for you.
One of the most overwhelming parts of getting engaged can be planning out all the details. From the date and location to the ring, there are so many different things to consider. Let’s go over some factors you may want to think about during the planning process.
Don’t be afraid to ask the opinions of people she’s close to. Her friends or parents might have the perfect idea and that can take some of the pressure off you. While it’s important that you love the engagement idea, it’s okay to talk to others about what they think she’d like.
Picking the engagement location is undoubtedly important. Many people think about how romantic a spot will be and then pick it based on that. While that is an important factor, it’s also necessary to consider the surrounding environment, if other people will be there, the weather if it’s outside, and things like that.
Don’t get too swept up in the idea of one location that you overlook important details.
Friends and Family
Have you considered having friends and family there? While some people prefer for their engagement to be an intimate moment, others enjoy having the support of others. It can be an extra special surprise if you fly in family members who live far away. If you’re going to be inviting friends and family, make sure that you coordinate it ahead of time so you don’t have to focus on that during the big day.
Hire a Photographer
Hiring a photographer can be a great way to capture the moment. They can help you think of any details of the proposal you may be forgetting about, so it’s a great way to have some extra support. If you’re going to have a photographer there, make sure that they’ll be able to get a good angle.
Incorporate Kids in Your Engagement
If either of you has kids, it can be fun and meaningful to incorporate them into the proposal. You can either have them there or take a video of something they’d like to say. If you are going to include children, it’s important that they understand the proposal needs to be kept a secret.
Public or Not
Some people would love a public proposal and some people wouldn’t. It’s important to think about this as it’s one of the most important details. If you think that a private proposal would be better, make sure that you’ve planned ahead for this and picked a space that works well. If you’re not sure whether or not the location will be private, it may be best to go with another option.
Regardless of where you choose to propose, it’s important that the moment represents you as a couple. Good luck!
