Every four years, there’s an opportunity for the women to do all the hard work and propose to their man. The 29th February 2016 will be your next chance to pop the question in an unconventional yet cool fashion.
When it comes to saying those four little words to your man, anything goes. There is no one single right way to get engaged, just as there’s no one single right way to get married. While it’s likely that unlike us girls, a breathtakingly beautiful view won’t add to the moment, other things that do make him tick – such as good food, wine, or even sports – may help to seal the deal.
While making the first move may be a little nerve-wracking, if you’re keen to make the commitment, why wait? Truth is, he’s probably just as nervous as you!
Here are some of our top ideas for your leap year proposal.
Organise a romantic picnic with all his favourite foods. They do say good food is the way to a man’s heart!
A weekend to remember
Propose during a special weekend away. If you’re other half loves nothing more than a relaxing break away, this will be the ideal setting for your proposal.
Pop the question after an extra special date night at his favourite restaurant. After a feast of fabulous food and wine, your proposal will be the perfect way to top off the night.
The personal touch
Personalise the proposal with his favourite hobby or game – whether it be playing the guitar or a game of scrabble. He’ll love the way you tailored the proposal especially for him.
First date memories
Head back to the place where you enjoyed your first date. With a whirlwind of happy memories, he’s sure to say yes.
Thrill of the hunt
Set up a treasure hunt in your back garden or at his favourite museum. Make sure you plan it with the venue team if you decide to do it in a public place!
Just the two of us
Keep it simple. If you’re nervous about popping the question, the best way to do it will be around all your home comforts where the emphasis is just on the two of you together.
Propose with something other than a ring. While diamonds might be a girl’s best friend, you may want to consider something a little different when proposing to your man – such as a pair of cufflinks or a watch. You could also get the item engraved, as a special memento of the day.
A helping hand
If you’re keen to organise something spectacular, why not get some help from the experts? You can now hire the help of proposal planners in the UK, who will be sure to think of something suitable for your man.
However you decide to propose, enjoy the moment and laugh about it. Humour goes a long way in making the usually tense atmosphere more light-hearted and enjoyable for the both of you.
