Three Tips for a Great Engagement
1.) Make it unique- popping the question at a fancy restaurant isn't original (unless it's the location of your first date) Pick a location/time of year/or event that is important to the two you. The courtyard where you first met and it was love at first site..the place you had your first kiss...or Chinese New Year where you were introduced
2.) Document it - Not too many brides have pictures of their engagement. If at all possible ask a friend or family member to hide at the location to take pictures. (they may need to wear a disguise!)
3.) Make it sentimental-Let her know you love her for her and that you cherish all your memories together. Hide the ring in a pocket of a scrapbook you created. Create a night of dancing to your favorite songs and end with your special question.
My Fiance planned a surprise weekend get away (since I complain I never get surprises!) He took me to Asheville, NC for a unforgettable weekend. We had a wonderful suite at the Grove Park Inn, champagne included! We did wine a tasting at the Biltmore and a Candle lite tour of the house. I'm in love with Christmas and historic homes. He finished off the evening by getting down on one knee and asking me to marry him! To finish off the engagement weekend we spent the next day in the Grove Park Spa.
