Getting Engaged and the Wedding Proposal

Are you thinking of all the romantic ways to pop the big question or wondering how and when he will? Everything from the timing to the delivery must be planned perfectly to make it magical. These tips should take all the stress out of the moment, and help make getting engaged and the wedding proposal perfect.

Timing the Wedding Proposal

In life, timing seems to be everything. Ask too soon, and you might send them running for the hills. Wait too long, and you might miss your chance. When is the right time to make a wedding proposal? Trends suggest that couples are waiting longer to get married, but this does not mean they are waiting longer to get engaged. Couples are choosing to live together before marriage, and have longer relationships and engagements prior to getting married. It is easy to get caught in the comfortable zone of a relationship, which takes the urgency out of marriage. The timing of your wedding proposal will be established by your relationship. If your partner has talked about marriage, you know it is on their mind. If they have mentioned an expiration date on the relationship, you have a hint that you missed the mark a while ago. However, it is not too late. The mere fact that a person remains in a relationship with you for an extended period of time reflects their commitment. Know your relationship and your partner. There is not a secret clock for timing it right. Ask yourself when the moment feels right and you cannot go wrong.
