How to Plan a Special Proposal even during the Pandemic
Many people dream of asking their partner the big question over a special dinner, perhaps with an expensive bottle of champagne and a slice of chocolate cake which may or may not have the engagement ring in the frosting. Some dream of having a destination proposal, popping the question with an attraction in the background. A lot would also want to have their friends and family members present during this very special moment.
The pandemic may have foiled all of this plans but true love will always find a way. So, without further ado, here are some tips for how to still deliver a special proposal during the pandemic.
1. Be Resourceful and Creative with what you have
Creativity is your friend here. COVID-19 has forced couples to become more creative with how they say those four words — and many couples have stepped up to the plate! From drawing the Eiffel tower in chalk on a brick wall to organizing an unconventional picnic to decorating the whole room with lights and flowers, these couples aren’t letting the virus stand in their way of living the rest of their life with their partner.
You have to think outside the traditional proposal box! Why play a cringy autofilled Spotify playlist, when you could hire a local band to serenade your lover? Why not string photos which depict every milestone of your relationship around your condo unit?
2. Modern Technology can Help
Similar to when it comes to planning a wedding or birthday party during the pandemic, platforms like Zoom, Facetime and Skype can allow you to share this special moment with your extended family and friends — if that is what you want.
Of course, some couples may want to keep the question and answer private, but after all is said and done why not throw a cocktail party with those who mean the most to you so you can celebrate this milestone together? Similar to online dress shopping, you can now find a ring online too!
3. Keep it Safe by Keeping it Simple
It is very important to abide by public health policies of social distancing and wearing masks. So, even in the frenzy of planning the perfect Plan B, C, or D engagement, remember to keep your future bride or groom healthy and safe.
This, of course, doesn’t mean the moment can’t be special to you both. Often it is the simple things in life which mean the most. These couples made sure that the engagement was safe by keeping it simple and private (socially distant from other people).
4. It is Ultimately About You and the Person You Love
If anything, the coronavirus pandemic has reaffirmed the power of love and proven that even in hardships, couples will find a way to make it happen. After all, if you can survive quarantine with your partner, surely you are soulmates. Even during the lowest of lows, you could pop the question and she will say yes because, at the end of the day, love is love.
