How to propose

Updated: Aug 2, 2022

We know that proposing marriage is one of the most important events of your life. We also know that for some, it can be a daunting time. As experts in proposal planning and staging, we have compiled the 'must-do' proposal list:


1. Make sure you're both ready

The first thing you need to determine is if you’re ready for this big step. Ask yourself, do you have the same values? Are you compatible? Do you really see yourself spending the rest of your life with this person?


2. Ask blessing from the parents

This is one tradition that some communities consider compulsory. It shows a sign of respect to the family and to your partner.


3. Buy a ring

Presenting the ring is a sign of your commitment, makes the moment real, and it seals the deal! Ideally, it would be good to find out your partner's ring size and style beforehand. You could sneak a peek at your partner’s existing jewelry or asking their friends and family about their style preference.


4. Pop the question plan

This is the commonly overlooked stage of a marriage proposal, yet it is the most important. When you announce your engagement, the first thing people want to know is “How did you propose?!” You need a story worth telling your children and your grandchildren. Consider how, when, and where you want to propose.


When thinking about the proposal date, you could consider the following:

  • the date when the ring will be ready for collection

  • on a sentimental date like an anniversary, birthday or your first date!
