6 Things To Consider Before Planning A Grand Public Proposal 

  1. Before Planning, Consider If Your Partner Will Be Comfortable: When you are in love, you want the whole world to know about it. You feel like screaming from the tallest building in the world for your loved one, and if not, you want to make it special for them by making a public proposal. However, before planning a public proposal, consider if your partner is comfortable with it or not. You don't want to propose to them and embarrass them in front of strangers. If your partner is coy by nature and you think they will prefer a private proposal, respect that and plan an intimate proposal for them. We can understand that you want to go all out, however, before proposing, thinking about your partner is a must too. You want to plan a matrimonial with them, hence thinking about their comfort is a must too. 
  1. Think Through It: If you have established the fact that your partner is very much comfortable being proposed to in public, the next thing you have to do is look for a place where you can execute without any hiccups. If you are deciding to propose to them in a restaurant where you two met for the first time, speak to the restaurant once, include the managers in your plan so that everything functions smoothly. Besides, if a beach or park is on your mind, ensure that you choose the right day and time to pop the question in public. You don't want the beach to be packed with loud groups - you want it to be a dreamy affair, so plan everything meticulously. Research about the places well and always keep a plan B in place too, before popping the marriage question. 
  1. Don't Mix Two Occasions: Proposing your partner will be a special moment for you as a couple, so make sure you do it on a day where nothing else is lined up. For example, if your partner's sister or your sister is graduating on a set date, don't plan your proposal around that date. You will not only end up stealing their thunder, but you will not be able to recall this day as your special day. Choose a day where you don't steal someone else's thunder and then plan the proposal. And while you plan the big proposal, remember to invite your family members and make it a grand affair. Doing it in the presence of your loved ones will make the matrimonial proposal all the more special. 
  1. Don't Forget To Hire A Photographer: Even if you are planning to propose your BAE in public, there should be a photographer to capture one of the most precious moments of your life. So don't forget to hire a photographer who will secretly capture all the moments. You must ensure that the photographer is standing at a perfect spot where they can take all the necessary pictures and videos. Pro Tip: If you are planning to hire a photographer, make sure that the location you choose for the public proposal should be picturesque. This way, not only will you get some alone time, but also get some stunning pictures for your marriage proposal. 
  1. Check Your Partner's Mood Before Finalizing The Date: Yes, we know you are excited to propose the love of your life for matrimonial in public - however, one major factor that you must consider is that their mood is okay. Sometimes due to work pressure or other issues, one will be in a stressful mood for weeks, and if you propose them during that time, you might not get the reaction you aimed for, so it's better if you consider their mood and other circumstances before popping the question. This way, both of you will get to enjoy the moment. 
  1. Give Them Subtle Hints: This special day of your life will be framed, and you would want to look good as a couple. And while you plan to keep the wedding proposal a surprise, ensure that your partner has at least some hint about it. Don't tell them you are going grocery shopping and then propose to them in the middle of the road - they will become conscious because everyone wants to look their best when being proposed to. So give them subtle hints - you can tell them that you planned a romantic date night, or you want to take some pictures for the GRAM!
