…For Those Who Know…

So you have finally met the woman of your dreams and you are ready to pop the big question to her?
You have no close friends or siblings to point you in the right direction and you suddenly run into panic mode!
Don’t worry, here are a few things to do just before you propose to the woman of your dreams.
Think of how you want to propose to this special person. How did you meet – In church, at the beach, at a party? Does she have a favorite song or a favorite restaurant or is she family oriented – and would most likely appreciate a proposal in front of family and close friends or is she very adventurous and would like a proposal 35,000 feet above sea level. Or would you like to go big and hire an expert to plan a surprise party?
Once you have figured this out, you are well on your way to operation “propose to BAE”.
After you have carefully picked out the location, it’s time to pick out the ring. Here is a tip on how to know her ring size.


Take her costume jewelry shopping at the local mall. Tell her you want to buy her a gift and have her try on some rings. Casually ask for the size or buy it when she's not around.

Get her friends to help. Have them try on each other’s rings and note which one fits the best. Borrow the ring that fits best and take it to your local jewelry store for sizing.

If she has a ring that she already wears on her ring finger, grab it next time she takes it off to do some messy work or shower. Lay the ring on a piece of paper and run a pencil around the inside of the band and take your drawing to a jeweler. You can also make an impression of the ring by pushing it into a soft bar of soap.

 If she's a deep sleeper, wrap a piece of string around her ring finger and mark the point of intersection. Measure the string against a ring size chart or take it to your local jeweler.

Depending on your budget and all the hints your woman has dropped in the past, you can CLICK HERE to shop for an 18karat Gold, Sterling Silver, Diamond or Gemstone Engagement Ring.

The final step is to pick a day that is really memorable for both of you – it could be the anniversary of your meeting, her birthday, your birthday etc.

Don’t forget to get someone to take pictures and make a video, your children will appreciate it and roll their eyes at both of you!

Finally, on the day you plan to propose, look as handsome and well-groomed as possible – get a haircut and a manicure. You’re going to remember this day forever, so feel free to go all out and impress your woman!
