Details are everything when it comes to creating a personalized proposal. From the location and setting to the small gestures and personal touches, the details make all the difference in creating a truly memorable and meaningful proposal.
How to make your proposal unique and personal:
Customize your venue or location by adding personal decor pieces such as photos or mementoes that reflect your relationship. Incorporate elements that are sentimental and specific to your partner such as their favourite food, colour, candles or favourite flowers. You might want to consider using personalised props, custom signage, a special playlist or live musicians to create a luxurious and romantic atmosphere. Nothing is more thoughtful than showing you have planned ahead by using signs with your names on them or even hand painted candles with your proposal date inscribed. These keepsakes from this special moment will be cherished by both of you for years to come.
How to incorporate your personal style:
Identifying your personal style and the overall theme and decor for your proposal is an important step to creating a truly memorable and magical engagement Here are our tips for determining your style and theme for your bespoke proposal.
Think about your partner's individual tastes and preferences. What do they love? What decor choices and colours make them feel special or romantic? Try to reflect on these themes when choosing how to decorate your venue ready for your proposal. Is there a holiday where they love the atmosphere and colours of the country or a hotel where they feel at home and connected to the decor or colour scheme? Use this as inspiration when choosing your decor pieces, colours, venue and even flowers.
Next, think about the atmosphere, what vibe do you want to create for your proposal? Do you want a romantic and intimate setting, or something more energetic and lively? The atmosphere you choose will help guide your decisions about your decor and overall aesthetic of the event.
Don't forget to consider the venue. Your choice of location can have a big impact on the overall tone and theme of your proposal. Think about the location, size, and style of the venue and how it fits with your personal style and the atmosphere you want to create. Think about the colour scheme already at your venue and what extra decor pieces will complement the space.
If you want a relaxed and boho vibe then choose a venue that's a bit quieter where you can add candles and decorate the venue yourself so that it's just the two of you in a cosy and romantic environment. On the other hand, if you want a grand gesture then consider a high-end restaurant or hotel where you can talk to the staff about playing personalised music, creating a bespoke menu or having the ring brought out in a creative manner.
If your partner loves traditional and romantic red roses, lots of candles and mood lighting, then use this vibe to create an intimate and exclusive experience full of beautiful music and stylish decor. Or if you are more of an expressive and party-loving couple that wants to share your recent engagement with family and friends, go for bold and bright decor with lots of live music and lights. And why not invite your closest friends and family along to share your happy news and start celebrating right away?!
