Put a Ring on it…

It is every girls dream to one day be proposed to and plan a wonderful wedding day. During the planning process however, grooms don’t get much say so. They may be requested to find the entertainment or perhaps pick out the groomsmen attire. Ultimately, it will be the brides’ choice in most cases. But, here’s where the groom can really shine. The marriage proposal! Therefore, be creative, be ever so thoughtful, and pull out all the bells and whistle, men.

Proposal

1st-Get Dad’s Blessing

Perhaps it is a little old-fashioned to ask the bride’s father for permission, but more trendy is to get his blessing. It lets your future father-in-love know that you’re sincere. It can also be a great experience for the two of you to bond. Share with him your feelings and intentions for his daughter, and the promise of the commitment to making his daughter happy for the rest of her life.

2nd-Planning the Proposal

You definitely want to impress your bride-to-be with the best proposal ever. Just think of her telling all her family and friends what a surprisingly wonderful proposal you put together. With holidays being the number one proposal time here are a few ideas from Susan Harris:

-Compile a photo slide show of the two of you. Explain that this is a present you created just for her and the last 5 slides should say: Will-you-marry-me-? Imagine the suspense. Or just put on the last slide, “Will you marry me”?

-On Christmas Eve or morn after all the gifts have already been opened, arrange for a friend to play Santa and knock on the door with one last gift for your fiancé.

-Rent her favorite holiday movie and make a big bowl of popcorn (peppermint flavoring would be nice). Place the ring box in the bottom of the bowl and when she sees it “pop” the question. Excuse the pun-ha ha.

-Give her related odd gifts that hint at was is to come such as, hand lotion, jewelry box, jewelry cleaner, gift card to nail salon, and then the ring box. Oh this one could be so much fun.
