How to pop the question for the perfect proposal!

Asking someone to spend the rest of their lives with you is a pretty HUGE deal! So, you’ve realy got to pull out all the stops and make the moment unique and unforgettable for you both. Giving the perfect proposal can take quite a bit of thought to get all the little, but very important details, spot on. Here are a few pointers to help you out!

A big party or private moment?

Are you a pair that love all things extravagant and loud, or people who enjoy the sanctity of those intimate but private moments? If you’re not big on big announcements, a sweet proposal over a home cooked meal at home with candles and music could be the perfect proposal. On the other hand, if you’re outgoing, party people who love a bit of attention, then go all out and arrange for a surprise party or meal and get down on one knee there! Your proposal should be personal. So consider your values and personalities when deciding when to pop the question!

Location, location, location!

Homebirds might enjoy a private proposal on the comfort of their living room, in front of a roaring fire and some fondue! Or, take them back to the first place you met, or their favourite restaurant to add a personal touch. Alternatively, if you can splurge a little, whisk them away somewhere romantic such as Italy or France and propose on top of the Eiffel Tower or on the streets of Florence! That would definitely be unforgettable!


A proposal is a real turning point and milestone in both your lives! Take the time and put things together like photographs, memoirs, and a playlist of songs that are important to you both. Buy them a new outfit they’ll love for the occasion, or take them out for their favourite meal. Or cook them a delicious feast at home. It doesn’t have to be extravagant or expensive- it’s what you make it!
