▷ 🥇 How to choose what to wear when you propose to me

If you’re planning to ask the question, there are some big decisions you’ll have to make, from choosing the ring to where you’ll kneel to what you’ll say… and yes, what to wear when you put your mind to it. It may seem like a minor detail, but you need to choose the right outfit, making sure you feel comfortable and confident during this crucial moment.

Here are some things to consider when deciding what to wear when proposing to yourself.

Choose comfort over style.

When considering what to wear when you set out, you probably want to look your best. However, if you are uncomfortable in your clothing, it will be difficult to focus on giving your proposal speech and presenting the ring. Choose clothes you’ve worn before (wearing a new suit can not only be uncomfortable, it can also raise your partner’s suspicions) and make sure you have a full range of motion. In particular, if you are planning to get on your knees, make sure you can do so in your proposal suit. It may sound silly, but you might want to practice kneeling in your outfit of choice to make sure it’s comfortable.

Dress appropriately for the activity.

Yes, asking the question is a big event, but don’t think you have to go to dress code. If you are planning an activity for your proposal, please dress appropriately for it. Go to the beach? A bathing suit and cover-up is great! Asking the big question on a hike? Find your athletic shoes and gear. And if you’re declaring yourself at home, put on what you would normally wear, be it your favorite college sweatshirt or your pajamas. Don’t overthink what to wear when you put your mind to it, dress (and act!) In the most natural way possible. Your partner will want you to look like you , not as a runway model, during this important moment in your relationship.

Consider ring storage.

One of the most important considerations when determining what to wear when setting out is where you will hide the ring. If you are carrying a backpack or other bag, the easiest thing is to store the ring in it (safely in its box, of course!). But if it is not natural for you to carry a bag during your proposal outing, you may have to carry the ring in your pocket. Make sure that the outfit you choose has pockets -easy if you wear a coat or jacket, less if you propose it in summer. Pants with cargo pockets are usually the easiest to hide in a ring box, but if that’s not your style, any set with pockets should be fine – just try to avoid putting your ring in a shirt pocket (! too obvious!).

Take time into account.

Be sure to wear appropriate clothing for the season. You don’t want to be freezing or burning as you prepare to ask the question. Your best bet? Dress in layers. Even if it’s chilly in the air, the jitters and adrenaline you may experience can make you feel a bit flushed. It’s easy to remove a jacket or other outer layers to keep you cool and comfortable on your knees.

Remember: You are going to be photographed.

Whether you’ve hired a professional or are planning to take a few picks, chances are there will be numerous photos taken (and posted on social media!) Of you and your partner during and after the proposal. So when deciding what to wear when you set out, make sure everything you choose will be photographed well. This means sporty solid colors rather than bold designs and clothing that is well-fitting, not loose and baggy.

Good grooming is everything.

While the outfit is important, you want to make sure that your whole self looks amazing, too. Make sure you shower, shave, and groom your hair, whatever you need to look and feel your best. Cut your hair a few days before your proposal, and even if you are not the one wearing the ring, we recommend that you get a manicure Y to girls alike: your hands are likely to be photographed, also during the first moments of your engagement, and dirty nails are not an option! Make sure you’re smelling fresh, too – brushing and flossing your teeth, using mouthwash or breath spray, and wearing cologne or perfume are all things to do before asking the question. These measures will not only make you even more attractive to your partner, but they will also guarantee you the confidence necessary for your proposal to be a success.
