You’ve found your life partner and you’re ready to make an everlasting commitment. You’ve researched the perfect ring and found the perfect one to present when you finally propose. But how do you keep the ring and proposal a secret until you’re ready to pop the question? Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered!
If you are aiming for a romantic proposal story you can share giddily for the rest of your lives, take a deep breath and remember that you can get organized, make a plan and execute flawlessly.
Make sure you have a well thought out, safe, hiding place for the ring before it’s picked up or delivered. Your sock drawer is pretty obvious, so get creative. Instead, think about putting the ring somewhere up high, so your sweetheart is unlikely to just stumble upon it.
If you plan to propose while on vacation, there are some extra things you’ll want to consider beforehand. Be certain the ring is insured and take a few photos of it before the trip. This step is so important because if the worst happens, and the ring is lost, you can file a claim. Pack the ring in a carry on, preferably in an interior zipper pocket, and never leave it unattended.
