A Proposal Checklist to Get Your Partner to Say Yes, Reading, Ohio

Proposing to your significant other is a huge step in your relationship so congratulations! This is an important moment with many things to think about, like the ring, a location, and your fiance-to-be. Planning a proposal can seem like a huge task, but with some help from the checklist below you will be a pro.

 

Buy an Engagement Ring

Buying an engagement ring can be very exciting and confusing! It can be hard to know your partner’s taste in jewelry and engagement rings. Reference the jewelry they currently wear the most so you can get an idea of what to look for. If you’re really lost, chances are their friends will know what they want. If your partner loves unique jewelry and taking fashion risks, look at engagement rings with gemstones for a pop of color. Sapphire and diamond engagement rings are especially popular!

 

Ask for the Family’s Blessing

This step is an important way to talk to your partner’s family about marriage and your relationship. Going to ask for the blessing is a great way to show respect and get some brownie points with mom and dad. If your partner is very close to their family then this is a must. Who you talk to will be different for every couple, but make it an open and honest conversation about how you feel and how much you love your fiance-to-be.

 

Rehearse Your Speech

This speech will be the next step to the rest of your life as a couple. There are two things that definitely need to be in the speech: the actual proposal and a declaration of love. You can keep it simple or elaborate with a story or a poem. But practicing what you want to say when you propose is essential. Nerves may hit you at the last second so rehearse the speech a couple times in the mirror before you can focus on looking into the eyes of the love of your life.

 

Find a Charming Location

Where you want to propose can depend on your proposal. Are you being sentimental or spontaneous? The location for each are very different: the place you first met as a couple versus a mountaintop. Personalize the location to your partner and yourself. If either of you are shy, then a sports stadium is probably not a good idea. If your proposal is going to be photographed then consider the view so you can get some gorgeous pictures as well!

 

Plan, Plan, Plan

Planning every detail of the proposal is what will make the moment so special. Being spontaneous is great, but to make the most out of this occasion, planning is totally necessary. Your partner will appreciate how much thought went into planning the proposal to make it personal just for them.

 

Hire a Professional Photographer

To catch the proposal at just the right time, you should hire a professional photographer. Reach out to them beforehand and they may be able to help you plan out the location and timing! With the help of a professional, you will get gorgeous photos of the moment you get down on one knee. Some photographers even offer to bundle the engagement session with your wedding for saving and so that you feel more comfortable on your wedding day.
