3 Romantic Ways to Propose on Valentine’s Day

Many men use Valentine’s Day as the day to propose to their loved one.  After all, it is the most romantic day of the year and it is a day you will always remember as the special day that you decided to become one.  So, what are some romantic ways to propose?  Here is a list of three ways to propose on Valentine’s Day that will definitely thrill your girlfriend.

1.  Do it in front of her family

This all depends on how traditional your girlfriend is, of course.  If she does not get along well with her family, this is a bad plan.  But, if you know she is very close to her mother, father, siblings, grandparents, cousins, etc., this can be a great idea.  Have them help you plan the special day.

Assign one of them to ask her to come to a family reunion on Valentine’s Day in order to get everyone together.  Inform them of the real plan, but have them keep the secret from your girlfriend.  When she tells you about the “reunion”, complain a bit about the “reunion” being on Valentine’s Day, but do not over do it to the point where she decides not to go.

If that happens, remind her that family is important and even though you would rather take her to a romantic dinner alone, you will go to the “reunion”.  If you are very traditional, ask her parents for her hand in marriage before the party.  Let the “reunion” go on for a while, so she really believes it is real.  Designate a time when you are going to pop the question and inform the others beforehand (so they know it is going to happen) like when you put on a certain song or say something in particular.

Then, drop to one knee; tell her how special she is and that you’ve already received her parent’s permission to ask for her hand.  Tell her you love her, ask her to marry you and give her the ring.  Chances are she will say yes and the whole room will burst into applause.  Make sure in advance that you have spoken to someone in the family about taking photos or a video when you ask so you will have the moment preserved on film.

2.  Plan a weekend getaway

If Valentine’s Day is on the weekend, plan a getaway destination such as Las Vegas or Miami.  This is a great way to propose if she likes doing spontaneous things and loves to travel.  Don’t tell her until Friday afternoon when she gets off work.  Pick her up at the office and say she has 30 minutes to get packed, that you have planned a weekend trip.  To do this you will need to plan several things in advance.

You will need to get either airline tickets, train tickets (traveling by train can be very romantic), or get the driving directions.  Make sure you have reservations at a romantic hotel.  For example, if you are going to Miami, try to get a room on the beach.  If you are going to Las Vegas, try to get a suite on the Strip at one of the nice hotels.  You will have to have the stuff you will need for the weekend packed – including the ring.  Hopefully, she will be so excited by the trip, she will think that is what the weekend is about.  But, at a great romantic moment, like a walk on the beach or in front of the Bellagio when the fountains are going off, propose to her.  If you are in Las Vegas, you can even get married there the same weekend.

3.  Borrow from her favorite click flick

Most women love romantic click flicks and many include a proposal.  If you know a movie she loves that has a romantic proposal scene, reenact it with her.  If My Best Friend’s Wedding is her favorite movie, just holler out “Will you marry me?” as she is getting in her car to drive away.  It is even better if she is getting on the train (which is how the movie version actually goes).  If An Officer and a Gentleman is her favorite movie, walk in to her office, just pick her up in your arms, and carry her out.  As you are carrying her out, ask her to marry you.

For this, you should probably consult her boss first.  If she loves Sex and the City and you have a dog, take the dog out for a walk with her.  When you stop to bend over and scoop the poop, pull out the ring just like Aidan did for Carrie.  If you are not sure what her favorite chick flick is, ask.  You can always use the premise that you are thinking about buying her the DVD copy for Valentine’s Day.  Be sure to ask for a few of her favorites to be sure to find one that has a romantic proposal.

Proposing on Valentine’s Day is a great idea and one that your girlfriend will surely love.  If you have the right setting, it can be very romantic and something that you both will tell your grandchildren about one day.

Weddings – You are Not Who I Married Yesterday

unique-wedding-ceremony-seatingHoly matrimony the wedding, a special day in two peoples lives where they get to exchange vows pledging their undying love for one another.

Infinity together forever.

Love honour and obey through sickness and in health are just a few promises that you verbally sign a contract to with the words I will and I do.

But do you?

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, so get it right.  You need to find wedding dresses, bridal undergarments, slips and other things.   Divorce rates are quite high where grounds for parting of the ways are due to infidelity, and following strongly behind we have high up on the list for ending a marriage, is the day in question itself where you were prompted by a man of the cloth at the altar to take this man or woman to be your lawful wedded husband/wife. How could this be cited in a divorce court you may well ask?

The reason being is your partner does not see you today as the person he/she married yesterday.

At the time of courtship when all the wooing was done, everyone one of us would take care in our appearance. How we would dress to impress, hair styled to perfection, and you would never find a hole in the sock or stockings of your girlfriend/boyfriend. But then the inevitable happens when the gold band is placed on the finger, we incline to let our image and appearance go, it is now that the partner sees you as an intruder/impostor in his/her life.

He/she feels let down as this is not the person they pledged to stay with for the rest of their lives therefore a great excuse for divorce proceedings. There will be times when we can not be dressed up to the nines due to work commitments, like holding down a busy job or being a full time mum and dad. But you owe it to yourself and that of your partner to keep the marriage alive and if that means being flavour of the month, then so be it.

You need to dedicate a little spare time to yourself so you can make an effort to go back to the days of your courtship, try to do this at least once a month.

Watch the reaction from your husband/wife when you enter the room as your old self. You will find your partner will have no problem living with this stranger for another month as long as he/she can look forward to this regular rendezvous

Spice up the occasion with some flattering underwear like in the days gone by.  Add a little sparkle to the evening with a glass of champagne or sip it from a slipper, what ever takes your fancy. Remember this is your night where memories will come flooding back, and rest assured the memories will be all good. Should there have been any bad then there would have been no ceremony.

Find the time to start loving again, you will love yourself for it and so will your husband/wife.

Wishing all a true mega life and health on your wedding day.
