Cupid’s Advice:

Whether you are a fan of more traditional engagements or are looking for a modern approach, there are a few steps to take before popping the question. If you are looking for some must-dos before an engagement, Cupid has some advice for you:

1. Rehearse your speech: Whether you’re looking to keep things short-and-sweet, or want a more detailed speech, it’s a must to rehearse what you’re going to say before the big day. Engagements are exciting and emotional, and may cause you to freeze up in the moment. By having an idea of the points you want to get across beforehand, you will make sure your partner knows just how much thought you put into asking the question.

2. Select the perfect location: Selecting the perfect location to pop the question is also a must-do before an engagement. Consider some of your partner’s favorite places and decide which would be the best spot to begin this next step together. It is also important to consider if you and your partner would rather have a public or private engagement when planning out the location.

3. Ask for permission: Just as Blake Shelton did, it is important to ask for permission when proposing to your partner. By asking your partner’s parents, siblings, or close friends if they approve of your engagement, it’ll show the respect you have for your partner’s existing family. It will also allow them to get excited and potentially help you with the rest of the planning process!
