Engagement Advice: 3 helpful tips on how to propose the right way!
by Alisha Vidal

First we want to say congratulations on finding your other half! (Eeeek!) We are so excited for you and we want to help you figure out the perfect way to pop the big question. Of course there are some basic proposal guidelines that we think everyone should follow, but here are a few other things to consider before getting down on one knee! (Feel free to forward this to your significant other, ladies. No shame!) 1. Do something that's you! - However you decide to propose, make sure you do it in a way that represents you as a couple. You want your proposal to be something that feels personal and reminds her of how happy you make each other. Keeping this in mind can really make a proposal feel more special because she will know that you really took the time to think things through.

2. What's your future fiancé like? - Probably the most important thing to take into account when deciding how to propose is your significant other's personality. Consider whether she is the bashful type or the kind of girl who loves attention before you make any plans. This will help you determine whether you should propose in a big elaborate way or keep things a little lower key.

If your future Mrs. is a bit more reserved, pick an intimate setting.

3. Practice! - We know this one might sound a little strange but it's super important. Have at least a guideline of what you want to say and practice it in the mirror to be sure it sounds right. You don't want to find yourself tongue tied when the big moment comes! Be sure to say what you really feel for her and don't be afraid to be sentimental. This is a huge moment for the two of you so we recommend laying it all on the line.
