Amore recently planned a proposal for a music artist in the UK. He wanted a restaurant in Scotland that could play a song that he had written and recorded for his fiancée to be. He also wanted a woodland style accommodation near the restaurant. They went through quite a few different options and went with a beautiful restaurant in the Scottish Borders who played the song and also presented the ring on a steam dome plate. They also arranged a cute cottage with beautiful views for that evening. Olivia made all the necessary arrangements and ensured everything went to plan and on the night she said ‘YES’! Congratulations to the lovely couple!

Top Tips for Planning a Proposal

Make it meaningful. Your partner will love if you have put a lot of thought into the proposal and the meaning behind it. For example you could choose to propose in the place you first met, where you shared your first kiss or where you first said ‘I love you’. Some other things to make it meaningful could include their favourite song or favourite flowers. All of these things will make the day that extra special.

Make sure to start looking for and buying a ring two to three months before you plan on proposing. If you have no idea what ring they would like look at their Pinterest boards, ask their mum, sister or best friend. When you go to buy the ring take one of their rings with you so you know what size to get. It would be a really good idea to also take the insurance out on the ring when you buy it.

Consider whether the proposal should be public or private. Would your partner want all eyes watching as you get down on one knee? Or would they prefer a more intimate moment with just the two of you? If your unsure ask close family or friends who you trust and if in doubt play it safe and go for a more private proposal.

Make sure your partner has a perfect manicure before you propose. They’re going to want their nails to look great in the after proposal pictures wearing their ring. And if you don’t want to be too obvious try asking a friend to take him/her.

Hire a photographer. Almost everyone who is getting proposed to wants that special moment captured on camera. It creates a forever memory that you can look back on and show family and friends. You can hire a photographer or videographer to be discreet if it’s a private proposal. If you’re on a tight budget you can always ask family and friends to be there discreetly and take pictures as well.

Plan what to wear. Depending on the location and what sort of proposal you’re doing, you will probably want to wear something smart but with big pockets with no holes so it’s easy to hide the ring. If your partner believes in this tradition then make sure to ask their parents before you propose. I’m sure your partner and your future in-laws will appreciate the sentiment. If they aren’t interested in this tradition then try thinking of other ways to get the parents involved for example helping choose the ring or help plan the proposal, this way you gain respect from them and it’s a great bonding experience.
