You have decided that spring will be the perfect time to propose to your girlfriend. Congratulations! The flowers are blooming, the birds are singing, and there is a sense of newness in the world. Now, all you have to do is figure out how to propose. You want the moment to be special, but thinking of unique engagement ideas that your girlfriend hasn’t already seen on YouTube or on Pinterest can be a daunting task. Yet it can be done. Just check out the following tips and ideas for a spring engagement that are sure to make your girl say yes.
Choose the Right Ring
When you finally propose, the last thing that you’ll want to see is a look of disappointment when your girlfriend sees her ring for the first time. But if you don’t spend time learning what she likes in a ring, there is always a chance that your girlfriend could be disappointed for a number of different reasons. For instance, she may be turned off by a big flashy ring that another girl might find perfect — or vice versa.
That is why it’s important to talk with your girlfriend’s BFF’s and family members to get an idea of the type of ring she would like. Would she, for example, prefer a marquise, pear, round or other shaped diamond? A yellow gold or platinum band? A halo style or a solitaire? You need to know as much about her preferences as possible before you finalize your engagement ring purchase.
Getting the Nod from Dad
While it’s not mandatory nowadays to ask your girlfriend’s father for permission before you propose, many parents still appreciate the gesture.
Three Unique Proposal Ideas
- On a hike in the woods or a walk on the beach with your beloved, you’ll suddenly come upon a small table and two chairs. On top of the table will be a bottle of champagne and two glasses. As your girlfriend realizes what his happening, get down on one knee and make your proposal. You’ll need a little help from your friends to set this one up for you.
- Take your girlfriend to a painting and wine session. Make sure that you are seated opposite of your girlfriend so that she cannot see what you are creating. When you feel the time is right, turn around your painting, which will read, “Will You Marry Me?” Cheesy and cute!
