WHEN IS THE RIGHT TIME TO CREATE MEMORIES & PROPOSE?
Popping the “will you marry me” question may be a once-in-a-lifetime occasion, so you’ll want to get it right the first time! To help you pop the all-important question here are tips for creating the perfect proposal.
1. Talk to the family
Old school? Well Yes. Important? Well Maybe. It really depends on the family. But by chatting to your future spouse’s family first about your intentions is a demonstration of your love & commitment to the whole family, not just your partner’s. They will love you for it & you might just get some proposal ideas or some insights into your partner’s preferences from them.
2. Choosing the ring
You have three decisions to make here:
• the metal: white gold, rose gold, platinum, silver, titanium, etc.
• the stone shape: round, oval, princess, heart, etc.
• the style: vintage, classic, elegant, glamorous, etc.
Getting the right ring size can be daunting, but better to be on the side of caution by making it bigger rather than smaller, and then perfecting it later on… there’s always resizing.
3. Setting the scene
Now that you have a ring, it’s time to start planning the proposal. There are countless ways to pop the question, but the main factor is that it needs to be memorable, romantic, and unique to you both. By being thoughtful of your partner’s personality and preferences, and you can’t go wrong. Earn brownie points with personalization & stay clear of one-size-fits-all ideas.
4. Enlist the help of a Professional
You know your love best, but sometimes it’s worth calling for a bit of extra proposal help. You can stay calm and collected and enjoy the moment while The Fairway Hotel, Spa & Golf Resort can do all the things backend and you can take all the credit and look fabulous.
5. Timing is important
Don’t rush the proposal just wait until the moment really feels right. Life happens, so be prepared to go with the flow & maybe
You might want to wait until she’s just had a manicure for those Instagram shots.
6. Popping the question
Think about the words you’ll use before the moment is upon you. You don’t need a totally written speech, but spend a little time jotting down what you’d like to say, even if you end up winging half of it anyway.
Again, it’s about keeping it personal and right for both of you that will make it perfect. Of course, don’t forget to say the “Will you marry me?” bit.
7. Remember to celebrate
When you get the “YES” it is important to relish the moment and make sure you’ve got an idea of how the two will be celebrating. You will be experiencing a mixture of feelings, but remember to breathe and soak in the love!
However you want to pop the question we will help make it an extraordinary experience for both of you by creating romantic memories with our spectacular proposal offers at The Fairway Hotel Spa & Golf Resort.
