How Will You Narrate Your Love Story?
No two people will ever walk the same path, which makes all those little stories of who you are and how you came to be totally unique. It’s what makes your love story one of a kind.
Of course, most of these treasured anecdotes will be resigned to anonymity, the kind of adventures that only you and your diary will ever hear about. There are, however, a few exceptions; stories that will be told over and over and over again; stories that people always want to hear you sing and, at the top of the pile, is the story of how you proposed.
Friends, family, half-hour acquaintances you make at a bar and total strangers you meet on vacation; this story will be told and retold forever which, no matter how you look at it, heaps on the pressure. Luckily, there is one piece of advice that can help: be unique.
Put your own spin on traditions, make your romantic gestures personal and tweak your ideas so that they become even more memorable. Cliches are cliches for a reason, so don’t ignore them, just try and find your own way to make a mark.
Forever Your Favorite Place
The fountain you met at when you asked her for directions, the rooftop bar you took her to on your first date, that quiet place she always wants to go back to – pick somewhere that means something to you both and have a photographer waiting to catch her expression as you drop to one knee.
One Ring To Make Her Smile Forever
In the same way, your love story will never disappear, the ring you slip on her finger will be a constant reminder of how special that moment was. Choose a ring that’s equally special. Step away from the phrase diamonds are forever and have Love & Lavender turn her birthstone into an engagement ring, have an impression of your fingerprint pressed into a band, or choose something that does your love justice; after all, an infinity knot means more than a diamond ever will.Most proposals are moments of shockClick To Tweet
The One You’ll Always Treasure
Most proposals are moments of shock; catching the love of your love out by surprise and asking them to spend the rest of their lives with you. It’s a beautiful whirlwind, and that means it can all happen too fast to soak up. To make their heart-pump with anticipation and excitement, send them on a treasure hunt instead, each clue taking them to a spot on your journey – the cafe you met at, the museum you first shared a kiss, the restaurant where you said I love you for the first time – and have this hunt end with your proposal.
Celebrate With A Proposal
What makes a proposal is the nerves that lead up to you asking the question. It is the flurry of thoughts that swirl in your mind and the sweaty palms you have to battle until you hear the word “yes” slip out of their mouth. But don’t stop there. Have the day planned so that you can celebrate the most amazing day of your life. Have your question be the start of something more; a question that leads onto a day of celebrating all over town.
How you propose will be the centerpiece of your love story. What’s your proposal story I wanna know!
