You have finally found the love of your life and it is time to pop the big question! The team here at Heaven Event Venue wanted to give you a few great tips when it comes to asking the Big Question!!!!
Enlist a partner in crime.
Their best friend, close relative or trusted co- worker that you have grown to love — enlist them to assist with the surprise element or just to help with the ring size. If you have a close relationship with their friends or family, it is a good idea to run ideas by them; just be sure that they can keep a secret. More than half of engaged couples do prefer to receive the family’s blessings. This also helps ensure that you are both on the same page.
If you know that they are anticipating the proposal on a holiday, pop the question at 11:59pm the day before so when they say YES!!! at midnight you have the entire 24 hours to enjoy your special day. Another example would be to pop the question as you are packing the car for a romantic getaway. You start the trip on a high note and you aren’t sitting nervously on the ring playing “Move the Box” before that moment happened. You now have the entire trip to enjoy, stress free, as newly engaged couple, which usually means complimentary upgrades!
Do your research and prepare the perfect setting. You may have to put your event planner hat on, or see tip one!
Here are a few things for your Day of Engagement Prep checklist:
- Confirm Location or Reservation
- Double Check the Weather
- Stay on Time
- Consider Heavy Traffic
- Photos to capture the moment
- The Ring
- Your Speech
- Friends/ Family
Make sure if you want a sunset proposal that you take rush hour traffic into consideration. If it is raining, is there a Plan B? Preserve the moment by getting a professional photographer or videographer. Make sure that you have thoughtfully prepared your words before taking a knee. Play “your song” as you get into the car, those tiny details are going to be the ones that make the story. Everyone is different, each couple is special, make those moments personal and sacred. Remember this story will be told for years to come, generation after generation. You know your person best, that is why you are asking them for forever, together.
