Finding the person you want to spend the rest of your life with and getting engaged is an extremely exciting moment in a person’s life. To commemorate the engagement, most men try to plan a memorable and surprising proposal setting.

For many, creating the perfect proposal can be stressful, as there tends to be a lot of pressure to create this big, extravagant event.

In fact, with a bit of thought and care, you will be able to pull off the proposal without a hitch!

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

The Ring

First and foremost, having a ring to accompany the proposal is important. For many, this can be the most stressful aspect, as it can be overwhelming to find the right ring. It is important to give yourself enough time to do some research, look at different rings, and find something unique, such as a morganite rose gold ring.

If you are completely at a loss, you can either drop some subtle hints, asking about her jewelry preference, or consider asking her friends what type of ring she would like.

When it comes to finding the right setting for the proposal, consider choosing not only a beautiful place, but also a sentimental location. Perhaps you may want to go back to the place where you first met, had your first date, or first said those three special words.

Wherever you choose to propose, try to find a time or area where you can have an intimate moment together where you will not be interrupted by tourists, loud noises, or other distractions.

Friends and Family

If possible, consider arranging for close friends and family to be somewhere nearby where they can share the moment and offer their congratulations and other sentiments. Whether they are hiding from view or waiting a designated area, it can be an amazing end to the proposal to have your friends and family be there to witness this beautiful moment.


Consider hiring a photographer or having a friend or family member secretly take pictures of the proposal. The day and moment is so exciting that it can be nice to have pictures documenting the occasion. Additionally, the whole thing can happen in such a blur that having the photos to remember the moment can be a wonderful surprise.


When it comes to actually popping the question, it can be nerve-wracking to figure out what to say and how to say it without getting tongue-tied. The best way to pop the question is to speak from the heart. Whether the speech is a few words or a few hundred words, if it is coming from the heart, it will mean so much more, making the moment absolutely unforgettable.

These tips can help you pull off the perfect, meaningful engagement that will be remembered forever.
