5 Expert Tips for the Perfect Proposal

Updated: May 19, 2021


  • Location, Location, Location...

This is the opportunity for you to show your partner that you know and truly care about them. You will be telling your engagement story for years to come and the location is going to be an integral part of that story. If your partner is outgoing and doesn’t mind some attention, you could consider proposing in a public place. It can feel magical to get a round of applause on such a special occasion. But if they’re more low-key, your partner might prefer to avoid strangers being involved in this intimate moment between the two of you, so you might consider a quieter location.


The Cotswolds has a number of idyllic spots creating the perfect back drop for any proposal. The Ciriaco team have contacts with a number of breath-taking venues, gorgeous gardens and superb suppliers, to help create the perfect set-up for you to propose. The Cotswolds are famous for having some of the most picturesque spots you will ever find. These spots offer traditional, charming and quaint characteristics and we know all of the hot spots and hidden gems!


  • Make it Sentimental

Your proposal doesn’t need to go viral for it to be meaningful, it should ideally be an expression of your love for your partner, in a way that reflects your personalities and your relationship. The Cotswold Proposal Planners can help you achieve this by helping you add those personal touches to your proposal. With the help of our expert team, we can help make the moment special and unique to you. All you have to do is focus on the important part, finding the right words to tell your partner you want to spend the rest of your life with them and go old and grey with one another, whilst we handle the rest. Chances are might be nervous and may stumble on your words, but having some idea of what you want to say ahead of the proposal is key and will help you feel calmer in the moment.

  • The Perfect Soundtrack

The soundtrack to your proposal is one you will always look back on and smile. Music has such a huge power over our emotions. Whether you create a playlist, share your favourite music, write a song or hire a musician, music has the ability to take the moment you propose to the next level.


Music plays an important role and it can truly bring that ‘wow factor’ to the moment and there are endless ways to incorporate music into your marriage proposal. Why not book a consultation with our Proposal Planning experts to find out more about how we can help you transform your proposal.


  • Capture the Moment

We know that no matter how much planning goes into the proposal, the moment can fly by. This is why it is so important to capture the very moment you drop to one knee! We highly recommend that you hire a photographer or even a videographer, to capture your moving speech and the moment your partner says 'YES'! Another reason we recommend you use a photographer/videographer is so that you can share it with loved ones later. Here at The Cotswold Proposal planners we never want you to miss a moment, we work with only the best photographers and videographers who are well briefed to remain in the background so not to give the surprise away.
