Ruses to Get Your Girlfriend to The Proposal

One of my favorite things to do when planning a proposal is coming up with a “sneaky” way to get the girl to the proposal location without suspicions. It’s so much fun to team together with these guys and find nice ways to “fool” the girl into arriving at the proposal! Below are some of our favorite ideas on how to best accomplish this. But keep in mind when you’re trying to come up with your own ruse, every girl is different! Some might believe these ideas, some might read right through them!

    1. The “meet a friend”. You start by asking a friend to invite you and your girlfriend out to dinner / drinks one night. Then, once you’re already on the way, your friend texts and bails on your plans. At that point, you and your lady are already dressed up and might as well go to a favorite local restaurant and enjoy a date night! Little does she know that you’ve already pre-arranged everything with the restaurant and your proposal is set up and waiting!

    1. The “I’ll have to miss out”. Arrange to have a fun Saturday with family members, then at the last minute a work-excuse can come up and you will have to back out. She thinks she is then going to spend the whole day with her family, when in actuality she is going to be pampered with her sister and mom before they lead her to the surprise proposal location!

    1. The “Let’s have a big date next weekend”. This one is one of my personal favorites! As you’re planning your proposal, schedule a date way in advance with your girlfriend. Set off as many ‘red flags’ as possible by saying things like “hey next weekend we should go on a big fancy date. Get all dressed up, you can get your nails done before hand, etc”! So she will be so completely focused on the big date that isn’t for a couple of weeks that your proposal will completely surprise her!

    1. The “Groupon”. If your proposal is at someplace that’s a little more on the ‘obvious’ side (i.e. a Botanical Garden, iconic landmark, tearoom, etc), then pretend like you found a Groupon of tickets to that place. You can even go so far as to photoshop a fake Groupon! Then when you invite her to this seriously romantic and girly location, she will think it’s just because you found a great deal.

With all of these tips, one thing to remember is to keep your cool. If you’re calm, cool, and taking control of the situation without hesitation then she will most likely just follow along. In our many years of planning marriage proposals, we have found that most of the time gals just go with the flow without asking too many questions if their guys are confident in the situation.

Long Distance Proposal Ideas

As if proposing isn’t already a huge deal, proposing to a long-distance significant other is even greater, because it signifies your lives finally merging.  Like any great proposal, the most important step is getting to the actual proposing, which may be even more difficult if you’re living hundreds or thousands of miles apart!  We’ve come up with a few tips to help you brainstorm your perfect “long-distance proposal.”

how to propose after a long distance relationship

Surprise her in her own town: On a weekend when you know she doesn’t have plans, take a trip to her town and surprise her.  Hint: It would be easier to have family or friends in on it, to make sure she keeps her day free and that she’s looking decent for the proposal!

 

Plan a trip for her to come to your town: If you’re states away, buy her a plane ticket and plan an itinerary for you two to explore your town.  Have a surprise proposal planned at one of your favorite locations.

 

Meet in the middle: Find the halfway point between your town and hers, and tell her to meet you.  Have the proposal already set up, and celebrate how far you have come in your relationship and the miles between you.

 

Take a vacation: Who doesn’t love a vacation?  It gives you the chance to unwind and feel romantic, and also spend time together that’s so precious in long-distance relationships.

It’s not the first time and it definitely won’t be the last that I post an amazing collection from the brilliant designer, Danhov! Some of my favorite ones yet!!

Each ring created by Danhov is either handcrafted or hand-assembled by the most skilled jewelers at its Hollywood-based offices. This further exemplifies the precision and individuality for which Danhov is known. Unlike many jewelry companies, no molds and mass-production assembly lines are used at Danhov. 

Each ring begins with a single wire and is shaped to perfection by Danhov’s artisan craftsmen. This preserves the quality and unique intricacies that only handmade and hand-assembled pieces can show.

All-White Bridesmaids Attire

Did you catch Monday’s post on white groomsmen attire?  Luckily for us girls, we can have even more fun with an all-white / off-white wedding wardrobe.  While there isn’t much variation with color, you can switch up textures, lengths, and dress silhouettes to match the theme and give each bridesmaid character.  The key to keeping the bridal party looking classy and cohesive is to follow through with the all-white theme in the ceremony and reception.  Also, it’s important to ensure that the bride has an accessory or a different dress to stand out from her bridesmaids (and guests if their dress code is white, as well.)
