Planning the memorable moment to ask those four little words can be challenging even for men who are romantic by nature. Most tend to think that making it unique means making it big, but that’s not always true. Women just want to know you put your heart into it. Our matchmakers at Kelleher International have put together a list of ideas to ensure that your proposal is unforgettable.

Choose a Sentimental Location

The key to staging your proposal is choosing the perfect sentimental locale. The restaurant where you had your first date, the dock where you shared your first kiss or the place you first said “I love you” are all great ideas. Using one of these locations as the setting for your proposal signifies that the relationship has come full circle.

Invite Family and Friends

Make the proposal a family affair by asking your loved ones to participate in the festivities. Propose at a family get-together or holiday dinner. If you want to have an intimate moment alone, ask your cheering squad to stand just out of view and once you've popped the question and she says “yes,” you can then wave them in to congratulate and begin the celebration.


We cannot stress enough how important it is to capture the special moment for your intended. A professional photographer can be discreet and also know the perfect way to capture the light and make the setting look even more magical. You won’t want to miss the shot of your fiancé's face as she says "yes" to being yours forever.

Incorporate Music

Music can paint a picture and set a mood. Find the song that means a lot to both of you and incorporate it into your proposal. Maybe you sing it softly into her ear or have it queued up on your smartphone. Either way, dance. It doesn’t matter who you’re with or where you are, gather her into your arms and lead her into a slow dance so that the moment will be imprinted in her memory forever.

Use Symbolism in the Flowers

As a symbolic touch, incorporate the years or months that you’ve been dating into a bouquet of her favorite flowers. Share the bouquet, explain the symbolism, and watch her melt. You will also be able to use this as a ritual in your marriage. Every year on your anniversary, purchase a bouquet with one additional flower, immediately bringing her back to the night you asked her to be yours forever.

Making this moment special for her is the perfect way to show just how much she means to you. By diving into what made you fall in love and using the little moments to create something special, you can show her just how much you treasure your time together.
