If you have made the decision to propose to your other half, then congratulations! What an exciting time for you. Once you have decided that you are going to pop the question, you can feel at a bit of a loss for what to do next. It can feel overwhelming when you start looking at rings and deciding where and when you will do it. After all, you only (hopefully) get engaged once in your life, so it is important that you do it right. Here are some top tips for proposing to your other half.

Think of a budget

When it comes down to it, proposing to your other half can become expensive depending on what you do. Try not to get too caught up in it all and think of what you would like to spend. This can be broken down into the ring and the proposal itself, depending on how you want to do it. This will make it much easier to stick to what you want to spend and still have a beautiful proposal. 

Think about the sort of ring they would like

There are so many ring types out there, it is important to consider what your other half would like the most. You could opt for something new and studded with diamonds, a family heirloom, or an antique ring from a shop or market. If you do go down this route, it can be a good idea to get it checked out by jewelry appraisers first to check it is legitimate and its worth.

Decide where you are going to do it

One of the hardest decisions of the proposal is thinking of where to do it. Do you want it to be somewhere where there are a lot of people around and you will gather attention? Would you prefer it to be more secluded? Will it be somewhere such as a restaurant where you will order dinner and if so, at what point will you propose? If you are doing it somewhere outside, will you need to go and prepare it first, such as with rose petals? These are all things to take into consideration. If you and your other half have a special place that you always go to, or perhaps somewhere that you went for your first date, this can be a great place to do it.

These are just a few simple tips for proposing to your other half that should make it that bit easier! It is one of the most exciting and biggest things that you will ever do in your life so you want to ensure that it is right. Remember, you know your other half better than anyone else, so don’t listen too much about what other people advise and instead focus on what they would love. Think about if they like being the center of attention and what jewelry style they suit. What are some things that you are thinking of doing for your proposal? Let us know in the comments below!
