The time has come… You want to put together the perfect proposal. Now what?

Planning a proposal can be stressful and daunting, so we’ve put together this guide to help you through the process. Let’s dive in and discuss some things to keep in mind while you’re orchestrating the perfect proposal.


One of the most important (if not the most important!) things is to remember to personalize the big moment. Is there a special song that has sentimental value to you both? Is there a restaurant where you had your first date?


Adding personalized touches to the big moment is an excellent way to make it even more memorable and special. Don’t be afraid to do something that represents you as a couple – whether it be big or small.


Timing is an essential factor when it comes to proposing. Especially if there are other people involved, such as a photographer or family, making sure that the timing is perfect is important. If you’re going to have other people in on the big moment, make sure to coordinate it carefully so that everyone’s on the same page.


If you have the opportunity, you can even do a test run with the people who are going to be involved. This can be a great way to work out any kinks and get some of your nerves out. If you’re going to do a test run, make sure that your significant other isn’t aware!

The Photographer

Many people like to have a photographer there while they’re proposing. If you are going to hire a photographer, make sure that you do so well in advance. This is the best way to be sure that you’ll be able to get a quality photographer.


Different photographers have different styles, so take some time to think about the specific style that your significant other would like.


Planning the perfect proposal is about more than orchestrating the big moment itself. How are you going to be celebrating after? Some people prefer to have a large engagement party, while others prefer a more intimate dinner at their favorite restaurant.


Thinking about something special to do after the proposal is a special way to take the day to the next level and show just how much you care.


If you’re not sure what kind of a celebration your significant other would like, consider asking their friends or family. Getting other people involved can be a great way to show them how important they are to you, as well as make sure that your significant other gets the proposal they’ve always dreamed of.
