1. Consider Your Partner
For the ultimate surprise proposal, do consider your partner’s unique traits, favorites, interests and personality. Take into account the sort of places, food, sights and sceneries they fancy. Ideally, it would be a one size fits all type of situation, but that’s what makes it all beautiful - they’re unique and you love them for it.
2. Proposal Concept
Considerably the most exciting part of the entire process, coming up with a proposal concept or idea could be a real thrill if you know where to look. There are more than plenty proposal ideas for you to consider. Tailoring it to your partner will definitely boost the element of surprise.
3. Sentimental Places
Choosing a location to execute your proposal is a lot simpler than you would imagine. Think of sentimental places that bring the fondest memories of your journey together as a couple. Whether it be your secret getaway destination downtown or perhaps an even more secluded area in the suburbs, weigh in the options for the ultimate surprise proposal.
4. Who’s Attending? Privatize or Publicize
Depending on your preference, decide on either a private little proposal or a bigger one involving your closest friends and family. Both with their own pros and cons, do think long and hard on this one - choose what you feel would be most appreciated by your lucky partner.
5. Add A Personal Touch
Your relationship dynamics and style are certainly different from every other couple. Bring out what makes yours unique and implement some lovely decor to spark up the proposal. A nicely printed photograph of your first date together to give, or even a little keepsake that takes you back to beautiful moments in the past elevates that personal touch greatly.
6. Plan It Out
Moments building up to the proposal are crucial; make sure you’ve got the entire day planned out. Even better, come up with a back up plan in case changes occur throughout the day or don't go according to plan.
7. Hire A Professional Photographer
Alongside proposals are the memories that come with it. Every proposal is bound to be unique and different from one another, given the people involved, place and time. Hire a professional photographer to capture those romantic moments with your partner to look back on in the years to come.
