WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
ASK FOR A BLESSING
This situation can be different for everyone. If family is important to her, ask her if her family is more traditional when it comes to asking for her hand in marriage. When asking for the blessing, it never hurts to bring a small gift to who you’re asking like a small bottle of wine or whiskey.
fIND OUT WHAT RING STYLE SHE LIKES
Take her to a jewelry store (we recommend Underwoods) and have her try on rings. They always look different in person than they do with just a photo from the internet. Internet photos can sometimes give you unrealistic expectations. When trying on rings, get her finger sized. Make sure you know what the most important features are she expects for her ring. Consider things like the metal color, the shape of the diamond and the style of the mounting. If she wants you to surprise her with the ring, make sure the sales associate helping you writes down as many notes as possible and gives you a copy to keep. All that’s left is for you to pull the trigger and purchase a ring!
WHEN TO PROPOSE
Timing is everything! Choose a time frame you’re wanting to propose like Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter. This is important to plan out because sometimes the perfect ring could take up to a couple of months to make if you don’t buy it right out of the case. One good idea is to make sure you have the ring in hand before planning your grand proposal.
WHERE TO PROPOSE
WHERE to propose is going to be just as important as WHEN you propose. Feel her out with how she wants to be proposed to. Does she want an extravagant proposal with all her friends and family? If so, consider your proposal location somewhere with food or a bar. This will allow you to have an engagement party immediately following your proposal.
If she wants the proposal to be intimate, choose a location that is special for the both of you. It never hurts to hire a photographer to hide in the bushes to capture your special moment!

If she likes to pamper herself, have one of her friends take her to get her nails done before you propose. She will be taking lots of photos with her ring on!
