The nerves and jitters that a guy feels when he’s about to pop the question are inevitable but planning ahead and being prepared will help ease his tension.
Have you always struggled with picking a proposal date? While people generally propose at any time of the year, there are some great days for popping the question.
Here are seven perfect days for marriage proposals:
New Year’s Day
New Year, new motive - play this perfect day off with some bling saying this is the first day of the rest of your lives.
During dinner, this is your chance to really tell her what you are grateful for- her presence in your life. Don’t hesitate to get down on one knee afterwards!
This is a perfect proposal day if you are spending Christmas with your girlfriend and her family. It will be thoughtful of you to give her family some notice and ask for her hand in marriage prior to this day because her father may not like that surprise.
Be with her by the Christmas tree when she’s unwrapping her gifts and promptly say “Wait, I have one more gift for you”. This is your cue to dramatically kneel by her side with a short loving speech.
New Year’s Eve
Amidst all the celebrations around your family, friends or even somewhere private, this is the perfect day to propose as you prove you want to end the year having taken your relationship to the next level. Express how much she has made your year and how you wish to end it with her.
Proposing on Valentine’s Day is the ultimate lovers’ present as you can ditch the flowers and chocolate for a shiny new rock. She won’t be needing those extra calories when she starts thinking about wedding dresses!
Set up an Easter egg hunt with some close family and friends, get some kids involved too. The last note could prompt her to gather everyone around before she opens her treasure and then as a sharp guy, you ever so conveniently propose while she breaks down in tears.
Evidently, proposal season is in! So what are you waiting for? Good luck with your proposal this new year's day and remember to make it as memorable as possible!
