Love and romance used to be far less complicated than it is in the modern world. While apps like Tinder make it nice and easy to find a partner who you like, there are a lot more steps in the dating process than there used to be, and things are changing all the time. A lot of people are looking to break tradition when it comes to their relationships. Wedding proposals have long been viewed as a job of a man, but these days, these old conventions no longer apply to the modern relationship. No matter what category you fall into, the sanctity of marriage remains the same. And no matter how you ask, in some way, so do proposals. So if you’re asking, here are 3 things to consider when proposing.
The ring is often considered the most important part of a marriage proposal. This piece of jewelry acts as a signal to the rest of the world that you have joined together, and it’s something people care a great deal about. Gold, silver, and diamonds are what everyone goes for, though. If you were to buy a platinum engagement ring today, you could break this tradition, choosing something which is just as rare and beautiful, without such a hefty price tag.
It’s very common for people to choose public spaces and significant events to handle their proposal. To each their own. But even better can be to choose a place important to your relationship. The location of your first date, or somewhere else significant to the two of you. Doing this privately is a special way to share it.Of course, to some, having a lot of people see an engagement is also important. That’s cool too.
Getting down on one knee and asking “Will you marry me?” is the standard when it comes to proposals. As displayed in endless internet videos, a lot of people have chosen far more creative ways to pop the question. It’s well worth being creative with the way that you pose this question. Giving you the chance to sprinkle a little bit of the personality your partner loves you for into this milestone.
Tradition serves a lot of people well, but some simply don’t want to do the same old thing. There isn’t anything wrong with this, and embracing the way you feel can be an excellent way to make sure that you never forget this time in your life. Thankfully, once you do pop the question, you’ll never have to do it again.
