Then you can pop the question as you eat together or have the ring ready on their breakfast tray. You can use your imagination and enjoy the moment!

Wait for Sunset

Nothing says romantic than watching a sunset together. Why not do this from home and wait for the perfect moment to ask your partner to marry you? The lighting is going to make the moment so special and this is going to be the best scenery for the proposal. You can have dinner outside and dine al fresco, waiting for the perfect moment to get down on one knee. Why not have a glass of wine? This might settle the nerves and make the occasion even better.

This is going to build up the excitement and ensure that the ring at the end is the ultimate gift. You can also get down on one knee and surprise them.

When you are in the middle or finished your wine tasting, you can pop the question to your beloved.

Write a Poem
