Before Proposing: 

Timing really is everything, especially when deciding something as important as who you’re going to spend the rest of your life with. Before you propose, make sure the timing is right for both you and your partner. Take time to reflect, soul-search, and really think if marriage is the right step for you both as individuals and as a couple.

When you are ready to propose to your true love, you want the answer to be an enthusiastic ‘yes!’, meaning it’s important to ask yourself a few key questions before you propose.

Key questions to ask yourself before proposing:

Consider your past conversations about marriage.

  1. 1. Do your life goals align?
  2. 2. How compatible you are in terms of big-picture issues such as children?

If your relationship is strong, you both are on the same page about goals and timing, and your instincts are telling you it’s the right moment, then it’s time to start planning the perfect way to propose at home. 

At Home Proposal Ideas 

Making a proposal special doesn’t always have to mean traveling to an exotic location. What makes a proposal special is the time, care, and love behind it. When proposing at home, there are many ways to turn the event into a memory that will last a lifetime. The most important step is to consider what your partner loves, and what you love about them. With this in mind, check out a few ideas for an amazing proposal. 

  • Bring the Destination Home 

Have you and your partner always dreamed of going to Paris? Are your fondest memories on a beach? Did you meet while traveling? Whatever the reason, choosing a destination that holds a place in your hearts as inspiration for your proposal is a great idea. Try decorating, cooking a destination themed meal, or curating a playlist with a vacation spot in mind. 

  • Cook (or Order) a Delicious Meal 

A way to anyone’s heart is through their stomach. Put your chef skills to work and cook your other half’s favorite meal, and serve it to them at a romantically set table. Or, order take-out from your go-to spot. In Bride Wars, a beloved romantic comedy that’s all about marriage, Anne Hathaway’s character, Emma, gives her fiance an enthusiastic ‘yes!’ when he proposed to her on the couch with their favorite takeout food.

  • Host an At-Home Surprise Party 

Nothing could be better than having your friends and family celebrate the start of your new life together. Luckily, technology allows us to bring our loved ones together virtually. Put your organizational skills to work by setting up a virtual surprise party for after they say yes. 

  • Create a Fun Game 

A unique proposal idea is to create a game or challenge for your partner. You can set up a scavenger hunt with clues that lead up to the big question, or create a custom puzzle or board game. The engagement ring at the end is the ultimate prize! 

  • Take Your At Home Proposal Outside 

At home, proposals don’t have to be indoors. Take advantage of the beauty nature has to offer by popping the question on a beautiful day. If you have a backyard, consider a picnic with romantic string lights. Or, if you have roof access, time your proposal with the sunset.
