My guest blogger this week is my groom-to-be from last year who proposed to his girlfriend Reena in the most romantic of ways! I asked Akhil if he would share with me a few tips on planning the perfect proposal for all the gentlemen out there. Akhil sent me three wonderful tips, that I am about to share on this blog post with you (he even picked the title! How Perfect is he!!!), that I am sure you will incredibly helpful when planning to pop the question to your sweetheart.
On today’s blog, in addition to Akhil’s tips, I am sharing with you just a few photos from Akhil’s own proposal to his now fiance, Reena, that was simply perfect and I was fortunate enough to be there, witness the tender moment, and photograph it for them to keep for life!
Here are Akhil’s tips and a few photos from his proposal to Reena. Enjoy!
- Buy a ring! Before you go out and buy one, you’ll have to be sneaky in finding out what she likes and what her ring size is. Once you know her preference, do some research on what goes into buying a diamond ring. You’ll feel muCCCCh (see what I did there?) more satisfied after putting in the time and effort into knowing exactly what you’re purchasing.
- Plan & Prepare Ask yourself what kind of proposal she may like. Private, public, or a combination of both? A romantic dinner or a celebration with friends and family? However, keep in mind that it’s not only her day, but also quite possibly the biggest moment of your life as well. So definitely put her wants above yours, but make sure YOU have fun with it also!
- Execute Stay calm and act normal the day of. Even if everything doesn’t go exactly the way you want it to, at the end of the day, she just wants to be promoted from girlfriend to fiancé. She will appreciate all the planning you put into making this moment special. So relax, take a deep breath, and make sure you hide that ring!
