Want The Perfect Proposal? Then Get Involved!

When it comes to proposals, most of us have a pretty fixed idea of how they're supposed to go down. The man gets down on one knee, and the woman is utterly shocked by this amazingly romantic gesture. And yet, most of us also want our proposal to be completely perfect. This presents a bit of a problem. After all, how are you supposed to make sure that you get the absolute perfect proposal when you have no idea what's going to happen or even when it's coming. Sure, it would be nice to be able to rely on your partner to give you the proposal that you've always dreamed of, but the reality is that is you want it to go down perfectly, then there's one option: get directly involved with it!

Pick out your own ring Let's face it, aside from the fact that it means there will be wedding bells in the near future, the most important part of any proposal is the ring, which means that you really want to make sure that it's perfect. So why not pick it out with your partner? That way you can be sure that it's exactly what you want. If you're not sure what kind of ring is right for you, then check out these 77 Diamonds Celebrity Engagement Trends for a bit of inspiration. If you wanted to, you might even have a ring made especially for you so that you end up with something totally unique.

Set some ground rules The kind of proposal that you want is going to be incredibly personal to you and your partner. The last thing that you want is to end up getting the kind of proposal that might be perfect for someone else but is the worst thing imaginable for you. So why not talk to your partner about what kinds of things to avoid. If you're a private person, then you'll probably want to let them know that you don't want them to make a huge deal out of it with crowds and a lot of attention. Or perhaps that's exactly what you want! Either way, your partner isn't going to know unless you talk to them about it.

Maybe even do it yourself! Of course, if you really wanted to mix things up, why not turn the tables and do the proposing yourself! After all, in the modern era, there's absolutely nothing wrong with a gender swapped proposal! That way you can give your partner the perfect proposal that they’ve always wanted instead!

Now there are a lot of people who will say that getting involved with your proposal will spoil some of the magic and surprise, but let's be honest, do you really want one of the most important decisions that you ever make to come as a surprise? Besides, even if you're aware of the fact that it's going to happen, that doesn't mean that you're always going to be exactly sure when and where!
