1. Don't Tell Anyone!

by Kursat for SweetEscape in Cappadocia

The less people that know about your plan the better. It minimizes the chance of your plan being accidentally spoiled to your would-be fiancee, and it would also add to the level surprise both for her and for others. But, of course, both of your parents should know about it first!

2. Find Your Partner in Crime

4. Avoid 'Special' Days

by Mizuki for SweetEscape in Tokyo

You might be tempted to do your proposal on 'special' days such as Valentine's Day, your partner's birthday, or your date anniversary. This is all okay, but if you're aiming to surprise your partner, do refrain from doing so! Even though the days are indeed special, it might become too obvious and your partner might have already expected it, so it will ruin the surprise.

5. The Ring Game

Most importantly, you should prepare the perfect ring! It doesn't always mean that the ring should be expensive, but it surely have to be memorable. One of the most difficult things in preparing the perfect ring is to guess precisely your partner's ring finger size. To do so, you can secretly steal one of your partner's ring and bring it to your favourite jeweller to make the perfect one for your big day!
