And right here in front of this sculpture is where John proposed to Mary…
Norwalk, Conn. (PRWEB) January 16, 2007
When it comes to marriage proposals, there is nothing too cheesy or too over the top, reports AP9 Connections, a leading entertainment savings program offered by Adaptive Marketing LLC. The romantic factor is the one that should matter the most, and that factor varies depending on the style of each couple.
Along with the romantic touch, the certainty that she/he will say yes should be the first thing to check off the to-do list. AP9 Connections recommends coming up with a proposal that suits the couple, something that doesn't need to be elaborate, but isn't boring either. You can tailor your proposal by taking advantage of the money-saving benefits you have access to through your AP9 Connections membership. It will make it easier and much more fun.
Here are some ideas for you to consider, along with some tips that might help you narrow down your options or at least spark your imagination:
--Public vs. Private. Some girls would rather die than be proposed to in the middle of a baseball game. Some will never forgive the fiancé if he does it in private. If you know your partner, you'll know what she likes, and that's the first step. One public idea that can also be a little bit intimate is to arrange the proposal at a movie theater. Invite a group of close friends and family, and have the proposal be part of the advertisements before the movie begins. They can all join you two once they've seen (or heard) her affirmative reaction.
--Take a trip. Sometimes a weekend getaway can give your partner a hint, but you can still surprise her/him if you plan ahead. A tour guide can give you a perfect moment to express your feeling by saying things like: "And right here in front of this sculpture is where John proposed to Mary…" She'll know they're talking about her when she sees you down on one knee.
Another trip-related idea is to take a drive and pretend you're lost. Have your partner look at the map you keep on your car, in which you taped the ring and wrote the words, "I would be lost without you. Will you marry me?"
--Clueless proposal. Make a video with images of your life together, and be prepared to play it on a night when you decide to stay in and watch a movie. Tell your partner you think you've got the wrong movie from the video store, and have the ring nearby to propose with at the end of the video. You can also have a special cake made with the words "Will you marry me?" and have it delivered at an odd time, when she/he least expects it.
Trying an over-the-top scheme to propose will only add stress to an already stressful moment. Keep your sanity, and remember that fancy limos or dinners are not what make a proposal romantic and unforgettable. Just make it special in your own way, and use the resources you have on hand, recommends AP9 Connections.
