Ways to bring in the element of romance when you pop the question

Stuck in between heart balloons and a million dollar wedding ring? Most men, even the ones who are on top of their game, struggle to find the perfect way to ask the perfect girl the perfect question. It’s because this woman is the best thing that’s happened to you and it’s the best decision that you’ve taken in your entire life.

Here’s something to inspire the romantic in you:

What she likes

Be sure you keep in mind what she really likes. Make it all about her to show that you care and that you remember. If she likes it fancy or simple make sure you give her what she really wants.

Most women have been dreaming about this day since they were little girls. This is the day that’s going to be the start of the rest of your days together as you dive into your journey together.


Make an extra effort to impress her, if it’s lighting up the whole room with candles, recreating your first date or even writing something down that would make her feel like you put in some effort will make her glow. All she wants is someone who cares and goes that extra mile. Putting in a little effort to impress her will go a long way.

Dress to impress

Make sure you look the part on the most important day of your life. Get that beard trimmed or that stubble shaved and look neat for the glamourous evening you’ve planned.

The moment she looks at you she needs to know that you’ve been ready for this for a long time. After all who doesn’t like to look good on a special day? And who doesn’t like to impress someone they love?

Keep it personal

It’s been the two of you through this journey and it’s going to be the two of you going forward. It’s better to do it in an intimate setting with just the both of you it sets in the mood and brings forth romance in its glory. Remind her of the times when you guys just started seeing each other or some incident where you really thought she was the one.


Make sure you set the right mood if it’s at a restaurant or a room filled with heart balloons it’s always nice to impress her with something that you have put together. Sing to her or play an instrument to her on a roof top with a home cooked meal with stars shinning down on your rock star romantic move. Keep the setting dim but full of romance.

Speak from your heart

You could have everything perfectly put together to impress her but what’s really going to make it special is what you are going to say out loud to her as you invite her to be a part of you. This is the element that makes the proposal one of a kind. Tell her the plans you have for each other in the future and remind her that it’s not “I” and that it’s “us” from today on.

An element of surprise

Bring in an element of surprise just to see her enjoy it. It could be a video of you asking her parents’ permission or some of close friends surprising you after she said yes. It will make it all the more special if she was expecting a proposal from you. An element of surprise will make her skip a heartbeat with butterflies in her tummy.

Capture those picture perfect moments

Don’t forget to hire photographers to capture that surprise and every reaction from there. These are precious moments that are going to add to your priceless treasure chest. Make sure she doesn’t notice the camera so it’s best if you hire a professional photographer to have pictures when you walk down memory lane sometime in the distant future.

It’s okay if your heart skips a few beats or she sheds a tear or two and it’s definitely also okay if one of those heart balloons burst – the most important thing is having her smile as you put that ring on her finger.

These moments are priceless; you can never go wrong when you know these ideas are not coming from reading something or listening to one of your best mates but from the bottom of your heart for that very special someone.  Above all love conquers all even your worst fears.
