Congratulations on your decision to ask your girlfriend to be your wife! From now on, everything will be different for you. No doubt youíve probably considered the decision from lots of different angles and now youíre sure that you want to do it. Now the next step isÖ figuring out how to propose to your girlfriend.

Remember that the way you propose will be a story that your girlfriend tells her friends and family over and over for the next several years to come. It will come up at your engagement party, her bachelorette party, her bridal shower, and donít forget the wedding night itself. The way you propose will become immortalized as history, so itís something to put a lot of thought into before you do it.

The ring is the biggest practical concern you need to think about. If you havenít already, itís probably a good idea to talk about it with your girlfriend. Some girls like to be surprised with a ring chosen by their man, some like to give a few general guidelines but want him to do the final purchase, and others like to pick out the ring together at the jewelerís. You probably donít want to just come right out and ask, because then sheíll know you are planning to propose. But try to work it into a conversation. Maybe mention a friend of yours who is going to buy his girlfriend a ring and try to get her opinion about it.

If she doesnít know that you are planning on proposing then the element of surprise is working in your favor. Sheíll be so taken aback by your popping the question that a lack of a creative proposal probably wonít be a big deal. But if she already knows that youíre proposing in the immediate future, the element of surprise is already gone. What youíll need to make the moment really special now is a very creative and unique way to propose that will put a smile on her face, even though she knows itís coming.

There are so many possibilities for creative proposals. You can go low-key by hiding the ring in a home-cooked meal for two, or you can go all out and rent a plane to trail a ďwill you marry me?Ē banner. Itís all up to youóand of course, the girl you will be proposing to. Remember that this is her special moment, so be sure to pick something that will make a good story for her to retell over the years.
