In most cultures, Western and Eastern, the groom is expected to ask for their blessing from the bride’s family as a sign of respect and honor. The family’s blessing hence should be the first step you should take when deciding to propose to your partner. Traditionally, the father or the brothers of the bride are the ones who provide you with the blessing for marriage. However, it depends on you or the situation within the family of whom you want to ask. This step will not only satisfy your in-laws, but will also strengthen your position in the family and increase your bonding with her parents.
To ask for their blessings, typically you would meet the family without your significant other and request them to give you their blessings for this marriage and the next step in life you have decided to take.
The location of where you choose to propose your significant other can have a huge impact on the proposal being successful and memorable. We believe that you should either go for a meaningful location, which has had significance in your relationship in the past or go for a scenic location that would make a beautiful backdrop for the pictures you will take.
By going for a meaningful location like where you first met or had your first date, you add depth and thought into the proposal while a scenic location is beautiful and can represent love and beauty too.
- The ring
The most important part of a proposal is the ring. Choosing the ring should be the part where you put most of your focus and finances in. We suggest that you take a mutual friend as your confidant into your plan of buying a ring as they will also know what your partner will like to wear. As there are tons of options available, you should observe the current style of your partner and the kind of jewelry they usually opt for before buying the ring as it needs to be perfect. We also think, by checking their Pintrest or their Instagram photos you can get a hint into the kind of ring they would like. You can look for custom made Halo round engagement rings here.
You will also need to get a photographer, add a personal touch to it, plan a speech, and pick the perfect time. However, these few steps mentioned above are the most important ones when it comes to planning the perfect proposal.
