Thanks to things like technology, travel, and social media, there seems to be an endless number of ways to propose. If you go by what social media says, it seems that when it comes to proposals, the grander they are the better!
The problem is those grand proposals aren’t the best idea for everyone. So what can you do instead? Well, in the face of the naysayers, we’re here to advocate for proposing at home.
Before your turn from the idea, take a minute – or three – to read the benefits of proposing at home.
1. Kind to your Wallet
Whilst the word ‘budget’ might be anything but romantic, it’s an important factor when it comes to proposals. We’re going to start by saying that you don’t need to splash your cash to create romance. Sometimes an intimate dinner at home with some candles, music, and your partner can be more romantic than anything you’d see online.
So, if you’re on a tight budget, proposing at home can help you to save money for the more important things – like the perfect engagement ring.
2. More Romantic
People assume that to create romance, you need to go somewhere else. Well, let us paint a picture for you; Imagine proposing in a place where both you and your partner can truly relax, where you’ve likely shared some of your happiest and most intimate moments with your partner, somewhere that you’ve laughed and cried together, and created lifelong memories. This is your home, and it’s hard to get more romantic than that!
3. Just the Two of You
When you take a moment to think of your happiest moments with your partner, it’s probably fair to assume that most of them are just the two of you.
Well, this is one of the great benefits of proposing at home – it will be just the two of you. If you want to cry, you can cry. If you want to laugh, you can laugh. You can express your feelings at the moment however you wish because it’s just the two of you.
4. Less Pressure
Do you get nervous in crowds or presenting in front of your colleagues? Well, imagine how nervous you’re going to be trying to ask the most important question in front of starting strangers with their phones out?
Eyes, cameras, strangers – it’s a lot of pressure. If you propose at home, however, you’re away from uninvited eyes and flashing cameras. You can just be yourself and pop the question. If you mess up the words, who cares – you’re at home!
As you can see, proposing at home is an incredibly romantic way to pop the question to your partner. With a few candles, their favourite song, some bubbly, and the perfect ring, they’ll be sure to Yes!
