Before you get married, you need to propose. Planning a proposal can be overwhelming, especially if you're not a natural event planner and want to make your proposal memorable.
It’s hard enough to find the perfect ring and keep your intention to propose a secret without the additional stress of planning the perfect proposal.
Are you feeling stressed about your proposal and considering a proposal planner to help with the process? Or do you feel that you should be the one to plan your proposal from start to finish?
This article provides you with some insight into what a planner does and how they may be able to help you.
What is a Proposal Planner?
A proposal planner is a wedding expert (or team of experts) that can help you plan your marriage proposal. A proposal planner can provide you with creative ideas for your proposal, and they have the knowledge and experience to prepare all the activities for your wedding proposal as well.
What Does a Proposal Planner Do?
The role of a proposal planner is to remove the stress of planning the proposal from your shoulders. But that doesn’t mean you won’t have any input!
The proposal planner will interview you to understand your partner's personality, likes, dislikes and fantasies and work with you to create a unique and memorable wedding proposal.
The role of a proposal planner can include:
- Scouting for the perfect proposal location
- Decorating the proposal location
- Booking musicians, florists, or photographers to make the proposal memorable
- Book a venue to celebrate after your partner says yes (fingers crossed!).
Should You Use a Proposal Planner?
Whether you use a proposal planner or not is entirely up to you. If you know how and where you want to propose and are confident that you can handle the preparations yourself, you probably don’t need a proposal planner.
If you’re feeling overwhelmed and have no idea where to start with the planning for your proposal, having an initial discussion with a proposal planner may be a good idea. You may only get them to help you with a small portion of the proposal, or you may decide to let them plan the whole event. It is about what you’re comfortable with and what works best for you.
How a Proposal Planner Can Take the Stress out of Your Big Moment
The chances are that this is your first proposal. In comparison, a proposal planner has done this many times before. Their knowledge and experience can be highly beneficial during the proposal planning process.
Here are some ways a proposal planner can help make the process less stressful:
A proposal planner saves you time: your proposal planner can do most of the leg work, including scouting for the perfect location, organising vendors and decorating the venue if it needs it.
A proposal planner provides you with creative proposal ideas: your proposal planner will provide you with ideas for making your proposal a unique and memorable experience for you and your partner.
Proposal Ideas to Match Your Partner's Tastes
Your proposal planner will consult with you initially and ask you to fill out a questionnaire to determine what you want from your proposal and find out more about you and your partner, such as finding out what some of your likes and dislikes are.
A proposal is not about choosing a random location to propose; it’s about finding a location and planning a meaningful proposal—a proposal you will both never forget.
Some proposal ideas include:
A Concert Proposal
Take your partner to see their favourite performer in concert. Why not go the extra mile and see if you can get your proposal planner to arrange for the artist to sing your partner's favourite song and then call you up on stage so you can propose? There is no way your partner won’t say yes!
A Romantic Vacation
A romantic vacation is a great time for you to pop the question. While this may not sound spectacular, ask your planner about ways to make it special. Flower petals and a string quartet to help set the mood, maybe? These are all items your planner can arrange.
Don’t Forget to Protect the Ring!
After picking the perfect ring, make sure you take out engagement ring insurance to protect your investment. You can rest easy knowing that the engagement ring is covered if it’s lost, stolen or damaged before, during and after you propose.
