Helpful Tips for Wedding Proposals

About.com shares several pointers for an effective wedding proposal.
According to their blog:
“Do test the waters: Before you propose, the two of you should have already spoken about getting married. Make sure marriage is something that each of you wants, and make sure you both agree on major issues such as children. This is a big question that shouldn’t come out of the blue.”
While you may have discussed marriage with your potential spouse, it’s important to keep everything a surprise.
“The marriage proposal itself can – and should – be a surprise. Find a moment and a way that she won’t be suspecting.”
And, of course, try to make sure that your proposal is special.
“Incorporate your personality, favorite things, hobbies, etc. into the proposal. Make it unique and memorable rather than a cookie cutter proposal.”
