First things first, before the big question, there is prep and planning needed to make sure your spouse-to-be gets the Ultimate Proposal.
The Ultimate Proposal is a surprise. Make sure you are able to keep the proposal a secret. At some point, you will have to enlist the help of others. Just make sure they can keep the secret!
DISCUSS WITH THE PARENTS
Especially, if your partner has more traditional values and a close knit family. Plus, you will rack up points for bringing the parents into the big secret. Family loves to feel included. Just make sure they can keep the secret!
The perfect ring is essential to a perfect proposal. Jewelers will be able to help identify the most current popular styles, but it is important to know your partners style. Ask their closest friend or sibling, if needed. Just make sure they can keep the secret!
I little gesture of kindness can go a long way. An often overlooked, but completely important, issue are nails. Once the ring is on the finger, you both will want to show off the good news. Which means hand pictures: a manicure is crucial to any hand picture. Offer to pay for your partner to get a manicure a day or two before the proposal. Your partner will appreciate this more than you know on the big day.

PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT

GET DOWN ON ONE KNEE

LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION
