The 29th February: A Day to Propose to your man?

1.    Keeping it simple is a winner every time: what’s not to love about a lovingly cooked meal (try using the Hawksmoor at Home cookbook for man-friendly menus), or an addled vineyard tour ending in a bottle of wine with a personalised label asking them to marry you, (turn it into something a little more spectacular by dressing up in that finest dress and some cannot-fail red YSL Rouge Pur Couture lipstick).

2.    Just the Two of Us: avoid unnerving that special guy by proposing in too public a space, so if a woman’s thoughts are going to propose at a football match, keep it discrete and ask when the crowd around oneself is jumping up to celebrate a goal, or in a little advert in the programme rather than on a big screen or over the tannoys!

3.    Have one drink for Dutch courage, but don’t get sloshed to try and staunch those nerves: this is a recipe for slurred words and someone may not even remember having asked or what the outcome was the next morning. Or why they were wearing a Haribo jelly ring (has actually happened to a member of our team).

4.    Put a twist on the usual proposal format and use wit to give added oomph and sweetness to that proposal by using cute puns, but be true to that personality and idiosyncrasies.

5.    Don’t kneel: this looks a little less chivalric, more craven when a woman does it. Plus, it’s tricky in heels and skirts!
