How to Ask For Her Hand in Marriage

Every girl, even the most pragmatic, wishes to be proposed beautifully. Therefore, it is very important to approach this issue responsibly, to show imagination and talents, knowledge of the beloved's tastes and just pay special attention to her.

In this article, we suggest several proposal scenarios. Some of them will cost a pretty penny. But we are sure, that you will not spare money for such a significant event for your beloved. Each of ways has the right to your consideration.

Universal Formula of Marriage Proposal

There is no universal way to make the best proposal because each girl has individual traits of character, favourite activities or phobias. One loves extreme, the other one is afraid of heights. Some girl may be allergic to the ingredients of which the cake with a ring inside is made. Another one can't stand the surprises. A lot of personal aspects must be taken into account to determine the way of proposing.

If any unforeseen circumstances appear, always try to use them for yourself, not just ignore them!

How to Arrange the Quest for Your Beloved

To organize a large-scale quest, you will need the help of professional actors. A more budget option is to ask friends.

  • Make a detailed script describing each step of your sweetheart.
  • Choose a place symbolic for your relationship, let the girlfriend come there and one of the actors will hand her a note indicating the next step.
  • When writing the script, remember all the details of your love story. They can include important phrases, people, places, memories. All these facts should somehow be present in the romantic quest.
  • If you invite a photographer and videographer to the quest, pass the girl a note with the words: "The photographer and the operator will be your shadow today, don t pay attention to them and smile!"
  • Actors can pretend to be simple passers-by or become for example a huge plush dancing toy.

A Fairy Tale Come True Under Spectacular Aurora Borealis

If your girlfriend is an avid traveller, do not miss your chance to really surprise her: ask her hand in marriage under the northern lights. Where to do it? This excellent Hub can help you to choose a place for magic proposal under the Northen Lights.

The glow, often called "aurora borealis", occurs at night when the sky is dark. It resembles a magical dance of light in the night sky, and the colour palette changes from green to blue, pink and purple.

The most difficult part of this scenario is to catch the moment when the sky will be flooded with amazing colours.

The best way is to go on a joint vacation to those places and at that time of year, when the northern lights often happen, and wait for the right moment, always carrying a box with a ring in your pocket.

You can even arrange a real campsite: spend the night in a tent under the northern sky, wrap yourself in one sleeping bag for two, warm yourself with hot chocolate, conduct romantic conversations away from the hectic weekdays.

Your future bride will forever remember this vacation and will show off her creative groom on every occasion.

Some Ways to Ruin Excellent Proposal Idea

In the end, let's talk about how you should not ask her hand in marriage.

  1. Do not propose at someone else's wedding or any other holiday. On this important day, it is you and your bride who should be the centre of attention.
  2. Be careful with the proposal after sex. Your girlfriend can think that the idea of getting married is caused by hormones and the pleasure, and not by real intentions and the desire to spend a lifetime together.
  3. Another common mistake is to interfere in the relations of your relatives. It is commendable that you want to demonstrate serious intentions. But a girl who is not well acquainted with them will surely feel uncomfortable under the probing glances of your relatives.
  4. Do not hide the ring in food or drink. This method is very popular because of the many films, but agree, that the ring found in a piece of cake looks unaesthetic. In addition, there is a great risk of spending the rest of the evening in the hospital.
  5. Don't worry too much. The marriage proposal is one of the main points in your relationship. At the same time, your appearance should express determination and confidence. It will be a shame if your speech is confused and slurred and you cannot properly convey your feelings to your beloved.
