If you find yourself sweating, shaking in your shoes and wondering what in the heck you’re doing, you may be about to propose. Proposing to your partner may very well be one of the tensest moments of your life. Wondering if your proposal is good enough, if he or she will say yes or if you’re doing the right thing, can all make the proposal a harried experience. It’s time to take a deep breath and calm down; we’re here to help. The first thing that you need to do is rent a limousine. A limo is sure to impress your partner, and leaving someone else in charge of the driving will give you one less thing to worry about. Once you’ve rented your limo, the proposal is up to you. If you’re stuck for ideas, here are five of ours:
1. The Traditional Dinner
If your partner leans toward the traditional side of life, stick with an understated, classy proposal. Have the limousine driver pick her up from work or school and drive her to your favorite restaurant. Meet the limo on the curb or in the parking lot and help her out of the car. You can propose as soon as you get to your table, during dessert or at the end of your evening; the choice is yours. Avoid having her ring placed in her dessert or in a glass of champagne; proposing in this manner presents an expensive choking hazard.
2. A Picnic at the Park
If you partner is the type of guy or girl who loves the outdoors, there is nothing more romantic than a fabulous sunset in the park. Pick your date up in a limousine, head to their favorite outdoor spot and spread out the blanket. If you’re not a great cook, your big night is the perfect excuse to try that new gourmet take out place that you’ve been dying to try. Add a bottle of wine and a sweet dessert and you’ve got the perfect scenario for a “yes.”
3. A Night at the Movies
To make this proposal idea work, you’ll need to contact the theater ahead of time. Many theaters will allow you to rent space on the movie screen before the movie begins. Anyone who’s been to the movies has sat through several minutes of advertising before the feature starts. You can sandwich your proposal between these advertisements, giving your partner a unique proposal that they’ll be talking about for a lifetime.
4. Mom and Dad’s House
Cruise on over to Mom and Dad’s house in the limousine for a family-oriented proposal. If your partner is close to their family, receiving a proposal with everyone present can be incredibly special. Once your partner says “yes,” you and the family can turn the day into a magnificent engagement party.
5. Your First Date
If you are looking for a truly romantic proposal idea, return to the scene of your first date and play it out to the best of your recollection. Instead of ending the night with a kiss on her doorstep, end it on bended knee with an engagement ring in hand. Your partner will be staggered by your thoughtfulness, and your chances of walking away engaged are great.
Don’t let the thought of proposing your partner overwhelm you. Hire a limousine and use the tips above to create a brilliant proposal that your partner will love. Remember, you don’t have to impress your partner, you just have to make the event a special one.
