Proposals should always be planned ahead of time, but it can be confusing trying to figure out what to do and say, especially when you’re trembling with fear. It’s nerve-wrecking, I know, but proposing to your girlfriend doesn’t have to be stressful or expensive and can be done either in the company of all of your friends and family, or intimately between the two of you.
Do It after a Romantic Night Out the Town
Nothing makes for a better nightcap than just getting proposed. Take your lady out for the best date night of her life. Go out and do something that she absolutely loves- if she loves theater, try to see if the stage director will let you come on the stage after curtain call and pop the question in front of the cast and audience. Take her on a romantic afternoon date, ride bikes around town, hit up the nearest carnival and propose to her at the top of the ferris wheel. If you’re both homebodies, order her favorite food and do a scavenger hunt around the house- the prize will be an empty ring box and when she turns around, get on your knee and propose.
Do it on a Roadtrip
If your beau is down with taking long drives to new places, then this may be a great option for you. This will take a great deal of planning ahead on your part, including getting the marriage license and securing a venue to have the ceremony at your final destination. Purchase ‘Wedding in a Box,’ a portable wedding option, that features everything you’ll need to put on a beautiful ceremony, including a bouquet and champagne. Once you reach your destination, wake up bright and early, slip the ring on her finger while she’s asleep, sneak out early to set up the decorations at the venue and go back and get your bride-to-be. Wake her up by blasting “I Think I Wanna Marry You” by Bruno Mars and lip sync for your life, hunny! Then drive to the venue, and say ‘I Do!’
