How to: Avoid Proposal Clichés

Everyone wants to remember when their other half gets down on one knee. It’s a story to tell the future children and the grandchildren. Plus, it’s a once in a lifetime moment that’ll be cherished forever…but not if the proposal is as predictable as a wasp on speed.

If you’re thinking of popping the question, be sure to do your research to avoid making a proposal faux pas. Here at Platinum Ring Company, we’ve come up with our top ways of how not to propose.

Do not:

 

Hide the Ring in Food

Whilst it may sound romantic to find a platinum engagement ring buried in a piece of cake, there’s actually nothing cute about an overwhelmed fiancée trying to fish out a cake-smothered ring from your dessert. Not only has this type of proposal been done over and over, it’s a recipe for disaster. What if she doesn’t see the ring? What if she chokes on it? Hiding the ring in food is a no-go.As well as being a hazard, it’s also the perfect way to completely ruin that sparkle and shine that every girl dreams of. You’ll be worrying about her not seeing the ring, then you’ll be fumbling to clean it and make it look presentable. We’re sure you’ll want to pass on this predictable proposal.

Propose On the Big Screen.

We’re pretty sure the pair of you aren’t going to sign up to TOWIE, Made In Chelsea, or any other type of reality programme, but just in case you’re after your fifteen minutes of fame, asking for her hand in marriage in front of the whole nation is not the way to go. Why? How many of these couples are still together? Romance gets lost and it’s usually all for show.  Even if you stay clear of reality shows, television proposals generally are a big no. For example, a proposal on daytime TV programme This Morning will not go down well. Yes, she’ll want to share this moment with others, but in her own time! She’ll also feel pressured to say “Yes” when she knows the cameras are watching. Is this what you want? We don’t think so. Be sure to avoid this tacky public proposal.

Pop the Question at the Eiffel Tower

It might seem like a good idea, but getting down on one knee in the love capital of the world is hopelessly cheesy, and a cliché! The Eiffel Tower is right in the centre of all that publicised romance, making it the least romantic spot to pop the question. What’s so special about a proposal that is happening in the exact same way to someone who is stood just metres away from you? That’s right; hundreds get down on one knee at this icon of unoriginality. Don’t be one of them.

Now you know how not to propose, you’re going to need to find the perfect engagement ring to set up the ultimate marriage proposal. Head to our product pages and find a stunning range of platinum engagement rings that are sure to make her go weak at the knees.
