Once it has been crystal clear that you truly love your partner and want to spend the rest of your life with him, it is the best time for an engagement. This crucial moment has to be done by a man, who is proposing his beloved future-wife. It is usually expected that from this moment a wedding within half a year, one year at maximum, will follow. Men should chose a romantic place for this moment, carefully formulate the proper words and of course pick the right engagement ring. Flowers can help make the so needed atmosphere enjoyable. Man must make this short moment unforgettable.
So what’s the right place?
These days the word has it – the more untraditional, the better. On a tower, suddenly in the middle of the trip or during the sunset observed from a balloon high above the ground. To all these places a man should deliver the flowers, sparkling wine or other drink of choice to the place unspotted and descreetly. Not to mention the ring, which should be given in an untraditional manner – women will surely acknowledge the spontainous and artsy side of the surprise. The whole little ceremony should be truly romantic and idealy very personal, for instance on a place where you two kissed for the first time, had your first date etc. A home made dinner served in an intimate way by candlelight – especially if you don’t cook normally – won’t go unnoticed and will surely please her.
It always depends on family traditions, whether only the future-bride will get the ring or the engagement couple will give the rings to each other. Women usually get the ring, men receive jewellery for men or a watch. Gifts could be engraved with the name of the beloved one or the date of engagement. The ring can be gifted in a beautifully decorated little box but you can also hide it at the bottom of a glass or in a sweets box replacing one of chocolates with the ring. Women usually wear the ring their entire life and that’s why it should be made of good quality metal, no cheap bijouterie. Among favourites are white gold or platinum rings with zircone or brilliant ornaments. It is very important to find out the right size and to know the taste of your beloved one.
At the carefully chosen moment kneel, look her straight in the eyes and say the magic words. Try to add something more personal to the classical „Will you marry me?“ or „Will you spend the rest of your life with me?“ explaining why would you like her by your side for the rest of your life. No matter how tough and self-confident of a manager she might be, such confession would bring tears to her eyes. In case you aren’t a really skilled speaker you can write down your proposal on a good quality paper (hand made one for instance) and hand it over to her together with ring, flowers and wine.
About other untraditional ways on how to ask for her hand we shall speak in one of our next articles.
No matter which way to propose your dearest one you choose, you should note that the most beautful for her is the sole act that you went ahead and asked. Because every woman wants to be the most beautiful one for her husband and she wants a marriage.
