Are you planning on surprising your significant other with an engagement ring?
If the answer is yes, are you good at pulling off surprises?
For countless guys across the country, the idea of catching their special woman by surprise with an engagement ring and proposal can prove tricky.
Given men are up against that old matter of women’s intuition, it can be difficult to truly surprise her. What ends up happening is she may act surprised, but she likely knew all along what you were about to do.
That said there are some ways you can increase the chances of pulling off that surprise, especially if you put a little bit of thinking and planning behind your efforts.
So, are you ready to surprise her with an engagement ring?
Putting Your Plan in Motion
In order to have the best engagement ring surprise possible, keep these four pointers in mind:
- Buying the ring – First and foremost, do you invite your special woman along for the ring shopping extravaganza? Some guys want their partner with them; others will try their best to find the ring they think would most make her happy. Whether the search is for Front Jeweler’s morganite rings or countless other brands, decide early on if she will be part of the ring search. If she’s not, make sure you clearly understand what she likes and dislikes when it comes to styles, colors etc. The last thing you want on your hands is one unhappy woman when you get down on your knee to propose, only to see her reaction to the ring;
- Finding the best way to propose – For some guys, they keep the engagement proposal rather simple. Others, meantime, will go out of their way to show how much they love this woman. Before you do something you may end up regretting, make sure you know what she likes and doesn’t like when it comes to surprises. Embarrassing her in front of lots of people could end up backfiring on you at a moment’s notice. If that happens, what should have been a happy event can quickly go south. Even though a proposal in front of many others may ultimately make her happy, play it safe if you think there is even a hint of this type of proposal not going over smoothly.
Involving the Family
- Involving the immediate family – Would proposing to her in front of one or both families do the trick? If she is extremely close to her family, she may very well want to share such a special moment with everyone closest to her. You can get some guidance on this matter by talking to her family (without her present of course). Some ideas for a family only proposal would be a dinner out at a nice restaurant, a weekend getaway to a romantic resort and/or bed and breakfast, taking a summertime vacation in or outside the country, perhaps even tying it in to a big family event like a special anniversary party and/or even a wedding;
- Romantic getaway for the special couple – Lastly, you might decide that a romantic getaway just for the two of you is what you will end up doing. It may be best in getting away from the daily grind, heading somewhere that may already hold a special meaning for the both of you. If you go with this option, make sure you plan things out accordingly. Having as romantic a situation as possible will only make it all the more special now and to look back on one day.
Before you can even get to the idea of planning for a wedding, the engagement plans should smoothly fall into place.
If you’re searching for ways to surprise the special woman in your life, put some time and effort into the plans.
When you do that, you stand a much better chance of getting a big smile and of course a yes response.
