|Proposal Scenarios: intimate OR public?||
I'm just wondering what this board thinks about the two basic
'styles' of proposing:
Option 1) an intimate, romantic proposal for made
just for two
Our relationship grew on the beach: rollerblading,
sunset walks, afternoons. If I were to propose on
the beach it would be meaningful for us as a couple.
I've asked a friend to agree to shoot some photos
of us as a couple as a favor--I've told her I have
special plans for the day but she doesn't know
what yet. I'll tell her we need to get dressed up
in our finery and as we get down there, she'll
see the friend with his cameras so she'll know
immediately that was the event. Then, he'll
leave and I'll ask to walk along the beach while
the sun sets. At some point I'll pop the question.
There is a restaurant nearby that has agreed to help
me out with a post-proposal candlelight & bubbly
meal. Just us love doves, together!
2) a public, romantic proposal in front of
family and friends.
My belle's mom holds an annual holiday party for
friends of the family. Her dad just died last year
and this is a tradition he started. It would be both
symbolic to propose on the night of this party because
it would be "like he was there" for the proposal. Her
mom is gung ho for this option partially
because she was not included in my belle's first
marriage much at all. It would also be a way for
me to be accepted into her family's social circle
in a very clear way--something that is not to be
underestimated! BUT, this would be the "public
announcement" par excellance.
I'd really appreciate your thoughts: intimate or public?
