Planning a proposal is a key part of the engagement process. Sure, you can casually bring up the topic of marriage but most significant others have an idea of just how they want their proposal to unfold. Here are some tips to ensure the perfect proposal for your loved one.

1. Select a sentimental location
For example, it could be the restaurant where you had your first date, the rooftop bar where you shared your first kiss, or the spot where you first said “I love you.”

2. Surprise her by having family and friends share in this moment 
If she’s close with her family and doesn’t mind attention, consider including her loved ones in your special moment! It’ll mean a lot to her and them.

3. Hire a professional photographer
He or she can hang out close to your proposal spot and covertly capture amazing photos of your proposal scene. Expert photographers know how to capture the light, make your setting look even more magical, and position themselves perfectly to get a priceless shot of the look on her face when she realizes what’s happening.

4. Get creative with the flowers
Give her a surprise proposal bouquet and arrange floral décor at your proposal site. For a romantic touch, get symbolic with the number of flowers that you use. For example, if you’ve known each other for ten years, have a ten-rose bouquet made.

Happy planning!
