Are you and your partner thinking of getting engaged? Talking about marriage and your hopes for the future is a positive sign that any proposal of marriage will be answered with a resounding 'Yes!'. It's important however to make sure that the engagement goes as smoothly as the big day so now is the time to start planning how you're going to pop the big question.
For many people, taking your bride or groom-to-be back to the place where you first met or had your first date is the perfect romantic gesture. There's nothing to stop you making a day of it by enjoying a leisurely stroll, romantic meal and then some relaxed drinks before you ask the all important question. Reigniting your partner's memory of a special place is sure to get them in the mood for romance!
Another popular way to get engaged is to incorporate a special occasion like a birthday or Valentine's day into your proposal. Approaching your engagement in this way can not only make an already special occasion even more memorable but also allows you the perfect cover-up for those of us who have suspicious partners! Furthermore, incorporating your engagement with your anniversary is an especially romantic time that can easily lead to discussions about where you would like to take your relationship in the future...such as marriage!
Finally, for those really looking to push the boat out and impress with that all important engagement, why not choose to whisk your loved one away on a romantic weekend away or city break. Paris is an obvious option but for those looking for somewhere closer to home why not opt for somewhere in the UK like London or Edinburgh? An Edinburgh boutique hotel is an ideal luxury base from which to relax and recline in between shopping, site seeing and dining out. Furthermore, many boutique hotels offer luxurious and highly romantic surroundings; just the place you want to get down on one knee!
