How to Pop the Question
Just because you are a sports fanatic does not mean her idea of a proposal is on the jumbotron. However, If she is a die hard fan, paints her face, and never misses a single game then go for it!
We have discovered most women prefer a proposal to take place in a private or semi-private manner. Some women prefer to have family and friends involved. Holidays are fun and personable atmospheres to pop the question; however, remember you will be competing with the busy holidays. There is always the option of an intimate setting for the two of you, followed by a surprise gathering of family and friends.
For example, if you want to take her to a Broadway musical, think bigger than proposing on stage. One of our proposal clients used the musical’s playbill to ask his girlfriend to marry him with a photo and description of her inside; he explained all her “star” qualities as she was greeted with roses from strangers outside the theater.

Considerations before planning your perfect marriage proposal from a proposal planner.

It is not a bad idea to have her friends take her ring shopping for fun; she may think you have no idea she browsed engagement rings, yet you were totally in the know with her friends.
