So you’re planning on proposing? Congratulations! This is a big step in your relationship, so it’s no surprise you’re looking for advice.
The good news is you’ve come to the right place. Here at Valentina engagement rings, we’re not just experts in all things engagement rings. We also happen to know quite a bit about proposals too!
Birthdays are a popular proposal idea – and it makes sense as to why. Who doesn’t love more reasons to celebrate right? So, to help with your plans, here are our top tips for a birthday proposal.
Keep the Element of Surprise
One of the key things you need to focus on is keeping your secret. In all the excitement of sharing your plans with friends, family, and future in-laws, sometimes the big secret gets out!
As you make your plans, be mindful of how many people you share this with, and who you actually tell. You want to make sure they don’t give the game away and spoil your big plans. One of the major benefits of planning a birthday proposal is that should anything you’re planning cause suspicion, it’s likely to be chalked up to birthday plans.
Make it a Separate Event
Having two special events on the same day can go one of two ways – it makes each event even more special or one event tends to overshadow the other. So, you may be wondering how can you avoid the latter? By making them two separate events. For example, if you plan on taking your partner out for a special birthday dinner, maybe propose in another place – such as at home afterwards? That way there is a clear birthday celebration, and a clear proposal – rather than the two being lumped together.
You can get Friends and Family involved
Your partner’s friends and family will likely be making time to see them, so why not get them involved in your proposal plans? You can either get them to help with the actual proposal or, you can gather them together for an extra special celebration!
Get Multiple Gifts
The worst thing you can do is come across as you’ve simply bought a ring in lew of a better idea for a present. So, to avoid this, get some other gifts that are actual birthday presents. That way, your partner has separate birthday gifts and an amazing ring for their engagement.
Understand your audience
Not everyone enjoys celebrating their birthday, so if you’re tossing up a birthday proposal, think about your audience. If your partner doesn’t enjoy celebrating their birthday, don’t propose on their birthday. Instead, find another time that would be better suited to them.
Follow these tips, and you’re sure to plan a great proposal for your partners birthday! Be sure to stop by Valentina engagement rings to get the perfect ring.
