Budgeting For Her Perfect Proposal

Budgeting For Her Perfect Proposal

Forward to your guy friend ladies! Memorable proposals are within every couples reach.

You have the girl. You have the ring. Now you just have to pop the question. I would say all men want to give their fiancee-to-be their dream proposal, whether or not that happens shouldn’t come down to money in a guy’s wallet. Romantic proposals do not have to be intimidating. Whether you have $100 or $100,000, thoughtfulness doesn’t have a price tag. Honestly

Tip 1: While you are saving for your engagement ring, set aside a small amount of that money for the proposal itself.

Tip 2: If you are on a small budget, use your resources wisely. Ask a friend to take photos or film it on their flip camera. Ask a friend to play guitar in the background. Use your Ipod and speakers to play “your” song.  Ask one of her girlfriends to arrange a bouquet of flowers that you can pick up from Costco or Trader Joes for $20! Choose a venue (aka proposal spot) that is naturally beautiful that doesn’t need much to make it breathtaking.

Tip 3: If you only have $100,  again, think about your resources so you can put your money into the areas that you can’t ask a friend’s helping hand. For instance, if you don’t have a friend who paints, but your girlfriend loves artwork, spend your money hiring an artist to create the memorable painting and use decor from your place or her best friends apartment to dress up the area. For example, use framed photos to decorate the proposal spot with favorite memories.
