When it comes to planning a memorable marriage proposal, the sky’s the limit! You want to plan a moment that has impact, romance, and significance for the two of you.
Don’t be afraid to take her somewhere special or surprise her with something she’s always wanted to do. But no matter what you plan, the most important thing to remember is keeping the diamond safe and protected at all times!
Avoid hiding the ring in places you’ll forget, or places that someone else might find. The right type of engagement ring box can also help you keep the ring safe. Try a compact engagement ring box that protects your ring while keeping it hidden–and avoid the following places that could put your engagement ring in harm’s way.
It might seem romantic to hide your ring in a cupcake decorated with rose petals, but do you really want to wipe sticky icing off the diamond as she slides it on her finger? Hiding an engagement ring in food can also be risky if something unexpected happens–for instance, what if she picks up the wrong cupcake or accidentally bites into the ring?
Avoid hiding your ring in food, and instead, plan a romantic dinner with candles, music, cupcakes, and the perfect proposal where you pull the ring out of your pocket.
Scavenger hunt proposals are perfect for the adventurous couple, but be careful about where you choose to hide the ring. If you decide to put it in the hole of a tree, it can be difficult if you’re in a public park. If someone else finds the ring or you forget which tree you hid it in, your magical proposal can quickly turn to panic.
Keep the clues and trees, but have the final clue lead to you–where you’re down on one knee with the ring safely in your hand!
If you’re using clues to lead her to the engagement ring, hiding it underground can not only be dirty, but it’s uncontrollable. You can’t control how the dirt shifts or who steps on it. You also don’t want to forget where you hid it! Play it safe and keep your engagement ring above ground.
With a Stranger
Unless you fully trust the person, strangers may not be the best person to help with your proposal. Asking a waiter to bring your ring out on a plate can be nerve-wracking if you don’t know if the establishment is reliable. Instead, work with proposal planning professionals like The Heart Bandits to find trusted vendors who won’t put your ring in jeopardy.
