Applying a lot of pressure when arranging the right marriage proposal sometimes seems as overwhelming as planning an actual wedding. When you think about it, a proposal is an opportunity that both you and your potential fiancé have longed for a long time. Some individuals would let on to who they like to be proposed to, while others will playfully wiggle their fingers and cross their fingers in hopes that their mate will magically figure out their thoughts and actions and do them exactly as they once hoped.
When in the marriage proposal preparation phase, it is just as necessary to remember anything you do not do while asking for a person's hand in marriage. Until your big commitment day, make sure you double-check that you remember these 8 major errors that people make while proposing to their significant other, so you don't make them.
1. Allowing a plan to be skipped
If the idea is being planned as though you're only going to wing it, it may be time to rethink. Before really asking a query, one could already have an idea in mind. Until you make this decision, you should know that you may be putting yourself at risk for unnecessary tears from your mate, or a really unpleasant moment that leaves all of you feeling awkward. It is really important to spend time looking about and deciding how you want to do this; when you want to do it; and of course, what you can suggest.
2. Don’t ask for too much advice from other people
However, prepare carefully not to plan too soon. Instead of anyone and everyone in your partner's life, it might be appealing to go to anyone and everyone in your partner's family to ask for their guidance about how to propose. You could end up with a little set of personal beliefs and a nightmare trying to find out what to do. Instead, you can limit the number of potential participants to three individuals, then go over each person's comments to fine-tune the proposal concept.
3. Don’t make it too complicated
As in every idea, nerves can fly high at the event, and to ensure that it moves along smoothly, make it as straightforward as possible. Before you add a bunch of various people and stuff (like a flash mob or a scavenger hunt) you can prepare, so that when the big moment arrives everyone will be ready to go.
4. Don’t do it in the wrong way
When you are thinking about arranging your upcoming wedding, consider who your fiancé is. If they are inherently introverted and reserved, they do not want to publicly suggest in a high-traffic location like a busy road or the Jumbotron at a sports game. In this case, you may not want to propose when you are both in your pajamas on the sofa, as the individual in question might enjoy the whole romantic and extravagant gestures thing.
5. Not thinking about the Ring
It is highly likely that you may have forgotten this important detail, so in case you've forgotten, please remember to wear your engagement ring when you ask the girl to marry you! When you are about to propose, be sure to be sure the ring is sized for your prospective fiancé, and then store it in a secure location so that you can have easy access to it when the time comes.
6. Not recording the moment
And if you know that the wedding would be captured on an iPhone, ask yourself if you want to use a photographer or videographer before you offer (because you will want to use them in the future even if it is someone in your family or close friends). Since it is a special experience that can occur just once, and you are both likely to be anxious, it might be worth your while to invest in a company that will provide the finest images and videos from the moment.
7. To prevent letting the nerves get in the way
To help you relax and cope with the additional stress, work to prevent displaying any visible signs of nerves to your spouse on the marriage proposal day. Don't get nervous about them if you can help it. It can affect the surprise, because if you are there as it happens, they may be able to predict it.
8. Giving her too many clues
It is worth working very hard to make sure that you didn't leave any hints or secrets that would lead your girlfriend to believe that you have prepared the perfect proposal. To ensure your wife may not stumble across the ring while hiding it, conceal it in a location that cannot be discovered, and make sure you do not speak about your engagement with someone who might talk about it with your partner.
Be sure to think about a suitable location for both of you, particularly when you're having the engagement ring ready to wear. If you have any plans to go to the area where you first met? Would you like to know where the first kiss between the two of you occurred? If you've brought your sweetheart to a venue like that, you can then go ahead and pop the question. It's a lovely and memorable experience.
To make a marriage proposal, you don't necessarily need to be on top of the Eiffel Tower, or to have a marching band, however. And if you've always found your way back to the spot where you fell in love, sometimes it's enough to simply move there.
