A trend has been set and with it the desire to receive a great proposal is on the hearts and minds of many a person. It can seem like a huge amount of pressure you'd just as soon avoid and yet you should not. After all if you fail at delivering the great proposal you live with that memory forever. Taking an out and keeping it basic, for what ever reason, always comes off as lack luster. The proposal is a measure of the love you have and the value you place on your fiancee. It really isn't hard to come up with the most amazing marriage proposal.

The most important thing is to include something significant to both you and your fiancee.  Let go of all inhibitions and do something from the depths of your heart.  The bigger and better the proposal is the bigger and better the marriage will be as it's a gesture of the faith you place in the bond.  People are really getting creative as each new and amazing proposal is spread all over the news, with this comes a heightened expectation for your proposal.  Go b

Avoid The Worst Proposal

The worst marriage proposal is one done quickly without out ceremony or thought.

If you truly want to get married it should be a big deal, it should count.  If it does not you should reconsider getting married all together.  The degree to which you get involved in the proposal is the degree to which you will be involved in the marriage or relationship all together.  Regardless of what your life partner says, the proposal does matter and if you plan to get married you should work with the element of surprise, shock and awe.  

You've no doubt talked about getting married and the possibility of spending the rest of your life together.  You know from these conversations if you're both all in or not.  If you're both all into the relationship and you know marriage is something you both want to share together plan the proposal without the other knowing!  The surprise is the best and biggest element for a great unforgettable proposals. 

Don't just say hey you wanna get married?  This is a bad way to do it and will leave a feeling of let down in the heart of any person receiving it.  Seriously, how do you think it feels to receive such a lack luster proposal?  Not very important that's for sure and one you want to avoid, Right?

Engagement rings are a time honored keepsake most every woman dreams about. Take the pressure of a sales person breathing down your neck off your back and browse rings now.

Planning the Best Proposal

The best marriage proposal requires some very good listening.

Your lover will drop clues as they talk about marriage.  While watching movies involving couples getting married listen to the remarks your partner makes.  They will leave clues as to what they like, don't like and their expectations of being proposed to.  We always leave a trail of bread crumbs leading to the way of the most magical proposal we can imagine.  

If you want to be certain ask, "what's your idea of the perfect marriage proposal"?  Allow time between these conversations and the actual proposal.  After you've discussed this you may bring it up again later, try to be tricky.  Ask what they think about proposals you see on television or hear about in the news.  I advise the more top secret approach as most people confess they really want to be swept off their feet and completely caught off guard. 

A great resource is to ask friends and family, sisters or brothers are great resources.  A childhood dream come true is one of the best wedding or marriage proposals hands down. You may ask a friend or relative to find out what your partners idea of the perfect wedding proposal is.  What is it they've dreamed about.  Get these people to find out and report to you keeping this a secret.  You may want to ask more than one person, but not to many, don't give it away being to obvious.

lou16, that's sweet, sounds like he had it planned all along.

My hubby never actually asked the question as I reminded him recently :) We were looking for a new watch for him and he said that whilst we were there he'd like me to try on a ring he'd been looking at so I did and then the jeweler wanted to measure my finger. We carried on looking at some other places for his new watch and he decided he wanted to go back to the first one - I was getting really fed up and wanted to head home and when he asked me to try on the ring again I was very close to refusing, but I didn't. I tried it on and it fitted! The jeweler backed away and hubby looked at me with a silly grin on his face - that was my proposal.

sheilamarie, Ewww great idea for a very special and romantic marriage proposal. There are a lot of shy people this would be best for as well. Great tip thanks for sharing.

Sometimes proposing when you are alone, instead of out in public, is really the best. After all you want to express your love to your sweetheart, not try to impress other people. I think I'd feel cheapened by a proposal that was more of a media event.
