Did you know that over 2.2 million Americans get married each year?

If you're also ready to tie the knot, you need to plan the perfect proposal that shows your partner how much you love them.

Do you want to know how you can keep this exciting plan a secret? Keep reading for the best proposal tips that are sure to blow your partner away.

1. Keep Your Plans a Secret

One of the most important proposal tips is to be selective when it comes to sharing this information. The more people who know you're going to propose, the more risk there is that someone will spill the beans. Even if people swear to keep your secret, they may act strangely around your partner and tip them off.

If family and friends are special to your partner, it's a good idea to have them present for your proposal. To execute this plan, only tell a few crucial people like their parents and best friend.

2. Find the Perfect Ring to Have a Perfect Proposal

Does your partner have any rings that they wear on their right ring finger? If so, you can get their ring size in secret. If you have no way of knowing their ring size, you may have to recruit some help by asking a loved one to take them shopping and casually get their finger measured.

Once you know their size, you can make a diamond engagement ring that they're sure to love. Not only will customizing their ring be a beautiful gesture, but you can also get it discreetly shipped to a nearby loved one's address to avoid spoiling the surprise.

3. Think About Your Partner's Unique Personality

The best engagement tips revolve around intimately knowing your partner. Since the perfect proposal is subjective, understanding your partner's desires can give you some clues.

If they're shy or laid-back, a private proposal is best. If they're outgoing, you can plan a big party with their closest friends and family. If they're adventurous, you could go skydiving or ride in a hot air balloon. 

4. How to Propose: Consider Disguising the Event as Something Else

If you're planning something wildly romantic or out of the ordinary, your partner could get suspicious. One helpful strategy is to disguise your proposal as some other event. For example, birthdays, holidays, or parties give you the perfect excuse to make extravagant plans under the radar. 

5. Have a Good Speech in Mind

Proposing is one of the most emotional and exciting things you can ever do. In order to make the moment more memorable, it's wise to practice what you'll say leading up to it. Remember to stay true to who you are and speak from your heart.

6. Plan a Wedding Proposal Celebration

Once you're engaged, you should celebrate the good news. You could plan an engagement party, reserve a table at your favorite restaurant, or spend the night in a nice hotel.
