7 Tips For Proposing

This is a no brainer. You want to protect your investment and it’s much easier to go through the insurance process before she’s wearing the ring.


4.       Don’t hide it somewhere obvious

 If you put it in your watch box or underwear drawer, she is sure to find it.

6.       Get some input on the design

Unless she has gone shopping with you or told you exactly what she wants, check with a close friend or family member to see if they have some intel for you.  It’s much less painful for both of you if she likes the original ring.



7.       Make the proposal special

Just because you spend a lot of time worrying about the perfect ring doesn’t mean you can slack off with planning the big moment.  Make sure it is a story you’ll be proud of when she tells everyone she knows AND all her Instagram followers.
