So here is my idea for proposing.....
Posted: Jun 26, 2009 4:08 AM

Hi,

So this is my idea. We are going out three years....

We are going away next Sunday with friends to southern Cali for one week. I want to propose before then so she has a chance to see her friends and family before we go on vacation.

I am going to propose at home. I am going to buy her a summer dress and parcel it up with two mini bottles of moet (chilled) and place the ring in the parcel along with an appointment date to get her nails done. I will wrap it up like it came in the mail and are addressed to her.

I am home from work before her. I will wait til she comes home and say, oh a parcel arrived in the post today. She will know it was from me when I stand right beside her when she is opening it. I will get down on one knew when she sees box for the ring and ask her to be my wife.

What do you think?

The manicure sounds like a nice idea. She will probably want one shortly after because everyone will be looking at her hands. But why the dress? If you are proposing at home she will likely have something to wear out that night to celebrate. Buying a dress for a woman could be a gamble.... unless you have some way of knowing it will fit perfectly, I wouldn't chance it.

I would maybe rearrange the order of gifts. Maybe tell her you want to spoil her for a day, so you take her dress shopping and for a manicure... then propose later once she is all dolled up. (or get her friends to arrange the manicure, so she thinks it is just a girls day)
My boyfriend once won a lot of money at a casino and took me shopping. It wasn't followed by a proposal and I didn't think it would be, so hopefully it won't be too much of a giveaway if you do it that way.

Good luck!

Cool

It sounds sweet and I'm sure she'll love it! Then again, she'll love the proposal no matter what you do.

Also, giving her time to tell family and friends is a good idea-- sharing the news is so much fun!

I think that is a sweet idea. I like the idea of the dress as part of the package. It seems that the dress would be the thing that came in the package. Very different. Good luck. I also like that you are giving her the chance to share her news before you wisk her away on vacation.
