Don’t let your nerves get the better of you

To take the knee is difficult. You want to make it perfect for your partner, you want it to be the most memorable day of your life and you simply want to nail it. But you don’t know where to begin. Here is a simple five-step guide to make your day special. So let’s begin at the start.

Step 1: Plan a day

The day you plan to propose is as important as the day you take the vow. You want to make it special, but at the same time you want to have an element of surprise. The shock on their face when you spring the question is priceless. Plan it for a special day. If it is one that is significant to both of you—then that’s even better.

Step 2: Buy a ring

You want to make the occasion special, not only by surprising them with your words, but also surprising them with your ring. Spend a little time choosing the right ring. The colour, the design and the size matter. Make sure you get it right.

Step 3: Make a plan

Your abilities to act are highly important here. You are excited to meet her on the D-day but it’s important to keep it casual. Spend sometime in calming yourself down. Don’t let the jitters get to you.

Step 4: Play a game

When the time comes, and you want to ask the question don’t just directly spring it out of nowhere. Plan a game around it, or make a ritual out of it. This will make the experience not only special for your partner but for you as well.

Step 5: Say the words

Choose your words well. Write them down. Practice them in front of a mirror. What you say is going to be etched in your memory for years to come. Make it special.

So that is the five-step process to an ideal proposal. How did yours go?
