5 Tips For A Successful Proposal.

Engagement season is upon us! In fact, the majority of couples get engaged between Thanksgiving and New Years. With that being said, we are really excited to write about, "5 tips on proposing." There is no right or wrong way to pop the question, but these tips will ensure that your proposal goes perfectly!

Tip #1 - Make it your own

Think about your relationship as a whole. What do you both enjoy doing together? Where was your first date? or your first kiss? Maybe you could take her or him back to that spot. Creatively draw on these special details to make your special day even more special.

Tip #2 - Public or private proposal

Not everyone likes to be in the spotlight. When in doubt, always play it safe. He or she obviously adores being alone with you, so you cannot go wrong with a one-on-one environment without an audience.

Tip #3 - Don't let the secret slip

This is one of the most important tips we can give you. Don't give out a lot of details. The more details you give out to close friends and relatives, the more of a chance you have that it will slip.

Tip #4 - Stick to an idea and not a script

Focus on the moment. Don't work too hard on writing something special up. Just say what your heart is feeling. Maybe you want to reflect on a shared memory or a common interest. If you try to memorize lines like a play, it will not sound personable or natural.

Tip #5 - Don't sweat it

If something goes wrong and ruins the moment, laugh it off. Keep in mind that this is real life, not some romantic love movie. After the proposal is over, it will make for a good story to tell.
