It’s every girl’s dream to retell her proposal story while listening to her friends squeal and giggle at the most romantic details. That’s because the whole process makes her fall back into the proposal scene, over and over again! So if you’re mustering the courage to pop the question in the dreamiest way possible, here’s the perfect go-to proposal guide for you.
This year, the way to create a romantic proposal is by going back to basics and keeping it simple. Enter a sweet proposal scene under the beautiful sky: you’re sure to sweep your significant other right off her feet! This one’s for those who might not be too familiar with maximising on the romance – you’re sure to create a heart-melting proposal scene with this checklist.
Secure the ideal proposal location
When you’re getting down on one knee, trying to articulate the most loving speech you’ve been practising, it’s best to find somewhere quiet and without distractions. This would allow you to focus on each other and the big moment that is about to change your lives!
Perhaps find an intimate location in nature. Not only would it be quiet, but the lovely view would set the mood for you as well. But if you’re a couple that loves being nostalgic, consider proposing at a favourite outdoor spot you both frequent and love to visit. The perfect location would set the stage: you would easily secure that yes you’ve been dreaming of.
Preparing for the right time: the golden hour
You’ve met the one for you – what better way to say it’s time to get hitched than by popping the question right at the golden hour! So plan for a sunset date for your proposal to ease into the golden hour. Not only will the lighting turn up the romance, but it offers the perfect natural light for your proposal photos. Remember to make a site visit to find just the right spot that the golden hour will hit.
But, of course, with Singapore’s unpredictable rainy weather, perhaps also scout for a nearby pavilion or shelter nearby. So, although the weather might pose an obstacle to your picnic under the stars, don’t let it get in the way of your sweet proposal plans.
Take advantage of a pre-engagement or promise ring: LVC Pre-engagement ring
It’s common for couples to face this concern: the proposal ring doesn’t give that perfect fit you were hoping to get. So to preserve the proposal surprise and secure the right fit, consider going for a pre-engagement or promise ring before the proposal. This gives you an inside to her ring size and the designs that would flatter your significant other’s finger.
Checklist: items to bring along in your proposal basket
- Your heart-warming speech
When you’ve finally set the scene, you wouldn’t want to let your nerves get you from popping the question. But of course, it’s natural to feel a little jittery – so pen down your heartfelt speech or a couple of pointers to get you ready for the magical golden hour moment.

There’s something special about flowers that easily convey emotions of love and affection – it’s a must-have in your basket. So mix and match a couple of her favourite flowers to create that unique bouquet for her to feel special and loved.
