The Ring

One of the most daunting aspects of a marriage proposal is having the perfect ring for your loved one. With a huge ring selection available, you want to make sure the ring you choose speaks to your partner. While some people are looking for flashy jewelry, others are not, and ensuring that the ring your purchase matches the personality of your partner is key. You can opt for a traditional ring, with a standard cut diamond and band, or you can custom design a ring in non-traditional cut, colors, and stone choices. The main thing to consider when choosing your ring is selecting the one that speaks to you, your partner, and your relationship.


The location of your proposal should be a personal choice, that speaks to the passion and romance within your relationship. Perhaps you want to whisk your partner away for a vacation and propose in a new setting they have always dreamed of seeing, or you want to personalize it and propose where you had your first date or first kiss. Selecting a location that is special to you as a couple will have your proposal bathed in romance and love, so consider the special places you two share when choosing your proposal location.

Small Details

Incorporating small details into your proposal will make the event more memorable and romantic. Having your partner’s favorite foods, flowers, or music playing can make a huge difference in the outcome of your proposal. If your partner has a favorite animal, having the rin presented in a stuffy, or perhaps having small easter eggs hidden around the site that give hints to the occasion will make the day all the more beautiful. Having small details present that ties your relationship together will make your proposal romantic and make your partner over the moon with happiness on this special day.

Capturing the Moment

If you want to make sure the moment is captured without any errors, then hiring a videographer or photographer can put your mind at ease and ensure your special moments will be captured correctly.


While you may be spontaneous in your normal life, ensuring proper preparation for an event of this magnitude is key to having it go off without a hitch. Without proper planning and preparation, you can lose out on some special memories, or perhaps have your proposal be less romantic than you wish. Making sure that you have set a plan in place and can follow it can mean the difference between happiness and disappointment, so make you put thought and effort into planning this special moment.
