How do you ask your girlfriend to marry?

How do you ask her to marry you?


Some say asking the parents for approval is old-fashioned, but the potential bride considers it flattering. talk with her parents and ask for their blessing. you are going to be family, so permission to marry their daughter is highly credited.

the ring:

Choosing the ring? know her tastes inside out. know if she prefers gold or platinum, modern or traditional. maybe browse through her jewelry box and pay attention to what she wears.


Location is critical when proposing. first, consider the type of person she is, and if a private or public place is suitable for her. choosing her favorite spot is the first thing to consider. she will cherish this moment for the rest of her life.

the proposal:

if proposing at the site of your first date, begin casual. sweeten her with her favorite candies, give her one stem of her favorite flower (just to make her a little suspicious) and at the end, propose. if proposing at a restaurant, pick her favorite restaurant. get the restaurant to work with you. order a bottle of her favorite wine, then at the end of the meal, talk of your first date, and when you fell in love, and why she is the girl you want to spend the rest of your life with.

sharing the moment:

Friends & family there to share in the moment may be special to her. factor that in when proposing. if she is private, then have them watching from a vantage point, or they could be right there with you.

the flow:

Sometimes proposals don’t go as planned. just be prepared and go with the flow. this occasion is about her and making her joyful because she will remember this day for the rest of her life. a moment to share with her family, friends, and children.

the moment:

It all comes down to telling a story. capturing the moment makes for a special memory, and choosing an expert photographer for this “one time is the icing on the cake”. fusion photography recognizes the value of memorial moments, and wants to make sure you and your significant other feel cherished with your engagement.
