Most guys think they know their girls pretty well, and they're probably
right, but the one thing they forget is that getting proposed to, for a

Best Marriage Proposal Ideas : The Key Elements
The best marriage proposal ideas all share a few key elements. They are:
Surprise: Never underestimate the element of surprise.
Even if she knows it's coming she can still be surprised when it actually
happens. If she's on to you and knows that you're about to get down on one knee
at some point soon, then make sure that you come up with the most unsuspecting
time. That one moment out of all the others that you would be least likely to do
Emotion: You're creating a memory to last a lifetime
so play to your emotions. The more special the time, the place, and the words
you use, the more memorable and emotion filled the proposal will be. This is no
time to be a GUY, instead be a friend, confidante, and lover.
Originality: Get creative! If your best friends just
got engaged on a weekend trip to the big city, consider a secluded cabin in the
woods if the idea of a quick getaway is what you want to do. What you don't want,
is for her to be able to compare your proposal to another one in your inner
circle—not because you can't measure up but because it's important that
hers be one of the
marriage proposals in her mind and for that to happen, she needs to think of
it as original.
Coming up with original and unique ideas is not necessarily about spending
lots of money or traveling to exotic places to pop the question. Unique in this
case means getting creative, being original, and paying special attention to ALL the details
which takes us right to the next element...
Personalization: Because it worked for cousin Bob doesn't
mean it'll work for you. This is your life, your relationship, and your marriage
and your proposal needs to reflect that and be especially meaningful for the two
of you, and no one else. So get to the core of who you are to each other and
what's so special about each of you and personalize the heck out of things.
See how all these elements come together in real life...

need to do is follow her heart and that will lead you to yours.
