Finding the woman of your dreams is the first step, and it is one that sometimes feels like it takes a lifetime in and of itself. But once you’ve found her, wooed her and swept her off of her feet, it’s time to seal the deal with a proper proposal. You know this woman better than anyone else, so you will want to ensure your proposal really speaks to who she is and who you are as a couple. Make it an unforgettable moment for all of the right reasons. Below are ideas to ensure your wedding proposal is as perfect as your true love.
Hire a Limo
So many men focus on the proposal itself that they completely overlook the day and evening of the proposal itself. The moments leading up to the proposal are crucial in ensuring it is absolutely spectacular. Hiring a limo to take your bride to be to dinner or straight to the place where you intend to propose is a special touch that she will never forget. It might tip her off that the proposal is coming, so if you are dead set on surprising her with that question you’re about to pop, save the limo for a special ride around the city after she has said, “Yes.” Make her feel like the star that she is before putting that touch of sparkle on her left hand.
Take Her for a Hot Air Balloon Ride
If you really want to make the proposal something that will wow her, take to the skies. Hot air balloons are a classic and wonderfully romantic way to set the stage for your marriage proposal. Make sure she’s not afraid of heights first, but once you have discretely determined whether she is, you can begin planning ways to take your proposal above and beyond her wildest dreams. If you plan to take a paid hot air balloon ride, research the tour operator first to find reviews and safety ratings. Remember to have your phone charged and ready to go for unforgettable proposal pictures!
Use Your Natural Instincts
There is something undeniably charming and romantic about diving deep into nature. If your girl is not into hiking or outdoor activities, consider traveling to your local botanic gardens where you two can enjoy the beauty of nature in a controlled environment (read: fewer bugs for you to contend with). Having natural splendor as the backdrop of your proposal will make it a picture-perfect moment that she will cherish forever. Follow up the perfect outdoor proposal with a picnic dinner in a secluded, romantic area to finish the night off right.
You spent your entire life looking for the perfect girl for you. Now that you have found her and realized she really is the one for you, make sure that the way you propose to her is perfect like she is. You’ll create a day of memories that the two of you can cherish for a lifetime.
