5 golden tips for your marriage proposal

Are you going to propose to your boyfriend or girlfriend? Then it is important that you do this in your own way, because after all, you know each other best. On this page, I give ideas and tips on how to make the marriage proposal as fun and personal as possible.

1. Be aware of the relationship

First of all, it is important to know that your partner will say "yes". Therefore, it is important to ask the question only when you are sure. Talk to each other about getting married and listen to what he or she thinks.

2. The marriage proposal on your own.

You can make the marriage proposal as big or as small as you like. Based on your partner's personality, you choose what suits them. You can ask with just the two of you, or with friends and family. If you have an activity together, you can combine it. You can plan it or do it spontaneously as long as it is something straight from your heart.

3. Traditions

Every faith has its own traditions and you have your own choice to follow it. For instance, you can ask your father-in-law for his daughter's hand in marriage. Or buy an engagement ring from a net monthly salary but, none of this is compulsory. Do the marriage proposal because it feels right.

4. The right time

Timing is key if you want to make the marriage proposal an unforgettable moment. This takes some patience but when the moment arrives, you will know when to do it. For example, you can wait until sunrise or at sunset, this is a great time because the light is at its best then. This will ensure that after the 'yes' word you can continue to enjoy the moment.

5. Marriage proposal spots

So you can opt for a location that suits you. This can be the beach whether it be the forest, your favourite restaurant or simply at home. Be creative by coming out, for example, at the place where you first met. So in short, it can be anywhere where you will propose marriage.

Ideas

  • Ask during a loveshoot. That way you have pictures of the moment right away.
  • Do a balloon ride after saying yes.
  • Hide a message in or under the food.
  • Plan an itinerary and propose at the end.
  • Write a love poem.
