Wedding proposal planning tips
To the ordinary people like us, the day you propose is one of the greatest moments you could ever experience in your life. When you finally propose, it means that you want the other party to actually spend the rest of their life with you. You are basically becoming one with the person you feel can best compliment you forever. Popping the question is always such a tense moment and you really want them to say yes. It takes a lot of courage and is always the ultimate expression of love. Below are a few tips to make your proposal even much more magical.
Decide whether you’re proposing in private or public
You must have known almost everything about your future spouse by now if you’re planning to propose. What type of person is he or she? Are they into the whole magical thing of you on bent knees in a crowded place? Or do they just want a simple private proposal away from strange eyes and a lot of attention? It is paramount that you don’t make them uncomfortable because this could lead you to getting a negative response. If they’re into the whole public proposal thing, then doing it in private may also lead to rejection. Ensure you’re soon to be spouse is as comfortable as possible and feeling loved. Do not expose how shy, they are by proposing in public and making them feel out of place.
Is the wedding proposal going to be a surprise or not?
You have to understand that people who don’t love surprises, may find surprise wedding proposals as a huge turn-off. This may lead to them turning down your proposal. It is paramount you make your future spouse happy from the very first stages and these include the wedding proposal. Remember that we are all different and that we have different reactions to surprises. If your spouse-to-be loves surprises then you need to pull off the biggest surprise yet when it comes to your wedding proposal. They will appreciate a good surprise and your wedding proposal will be that much more magical.
Decide whether you will incorporate a speech or not.
Let’s face it, most people love the speech part more than the proposal itself. You get to expose how vulnerable you are and how much you need your future spouse. At this point, you need to be creative and express in words exactly how you feel. The tone you use is very critical because you are setting a mood. When it comes to the whole speech thing, you can only do it when the background is quiet and your partner can clearly hear you. It would be so impractical if you decide to make the speech at a baseball game because no one would actually hear you clearly including your spouse to be. The most important thing you need to do is decide whether the speech would be effective at the time you propose or later on when things quiet down. A speech is however critical, and for a proper wedding proposal, you will have to say it at one point irrespective of how short or long it is.
Decide if you will make it corny or not corny
When I say corny am talking about how you present it, the extra flares you may want to include in your wedding proposal. A good example is a plane flying by with a banner requesting your spouse to be to marry you. This is usually based on how creative you are and the lengths you are willing to go to express your love. If your future spouse is into all this theatrics, then you are already aware and you will need to come up with a corny way of making your wedding proposal. Some people find this theatrics to be immature and pretty much stupid. If your spouse to be is one of those people, then you will have to stick to the basic. It’s simple really, just a romantic setting and you go down on one knee. You need your spouse to say yes, don’t complicate issues by being corny when they are not into that sort of thing. If you do, they will feel offended, and you might get a negative response.
Most of the time when you find someone you really care about and are willing to spend the rest of your life with, however you propose, it will still be an extraordinary and magical event in your life. This is because of the bond you have and how strong your feelings are. Yes, plan for the proposal, but if it’s the right person you can never do it wrong.
