Popping the Big Question
The Do’s and Don’ts
She’s been dreaming about it since she was
a little girl. That magical moment when, one
day, her prince charming will muster up the
courage and pop the question: “Will you
There’s a ton of weight put on this one
moment. It could mean the difference
between a timeless memory that she will
cherish forever and an embarrassing event
that she’d rather forget.
Go down in her history book as the prince
charming that she’s been waiting for. Make
it a romantic story to tell your kids one
day…and with that said, let’s explore some
do’s and don’ts to popping the big question.
It’s a classic move, and it will never
get tacky. Taking your loved one to
the place where you had your first
date, where you first met, or on an
exotic location that is extra special.
These are all great ideas and it shows
that you’re paying attention and
always have been. In life, we are
attracted to things that come around
full circle, be it in stories, music, or in
Sure, being nervous can be endearing and
cute…but to an extent. The moment you
begin stuttering more than you’re actually
talking the ‘moment’ gets lost.
Also, when you’re proposing you want your
bride to be to feel as though you are
confident in making such a big
commitment. Your nervous stuttering may
not necessarily give her that idea!
Meet the Parents
Traditional or not, if you’re asking the lady of your
dreams to marry you that means that you’re asking
to become a member of her family and vice versa.
For harmony’s sake, it’s always best to understand
what you’re marrying into and it’s nice to give your
in-laws-to-be a glimpse of what the family their
lovely daughter is becoming a part of.
Meet the parents, if even for obvious reasons.
Getting the blessings is always a plus!
Asking Empty Handed
This is rule #1. If you’re going to ask for
your lover’s hand in marriage be sure
that you have a ring to put on her hand.
She’s been waiting for this her whole
life, don’t take the chance of ruining it by
not having the universal symbol of
commitment ready to present to her.
To many people, there’s nothing worse
than public embarrassment. Having
something like a marriage proposal turn
into a public spectacle can put the wrong
kind of pressure on a person. Just search
Youtube for “Failed proposals”!
Unless, it’s something that you know that
she’s into, rule of thumb should be to
keep it quaint. Focus on you and your
significant other, not on what everyone
Telling Too Many People About Your Plan
Yes, we all have those people that we can trust to keep a secret. However,
something like a marriage proposal is simply way too tempting to not tell anyone
else…and if word gets out…count out surprising your bride-to-be with a well
planned proposal. Though, it’ll still be nice, we’re sure…
Hiding the ring in Food
It may have worked in the movies or on
television, but there’s been many cases when
this romantic gesture ends up doing more
harm than good. There was the case of the
fiancé-to-be who wound up swallowing her ring
during dessert, or the one that chipped her
tooth on a ring hidden in her meal…Don’t let
these mishaps come your way, keep the ring in
its box and keep it out of the food.
