It can be a daunting prospect, and the intense pressure to do it "right", is immense.
This doesn't mean we have to whisk the love of our life off to some romantic place, or spend silly amounts of money.
The best proposal stories can come from pleasures like a summer picnic in the park, and in the manner one of my friend's, stones laid out on a beach to say "Will you marry Me?" whilst on holiday.
Romance can be as simple as rose petals, and candles, it can be a walk up a mountain to see an awesome view, it can be a spur of a moment decision where you are gripped with such a feeling that you never want to let go this amazing person you have found.
You can go all out too, and have the proposal written in fireworks, or in a banner drawn by a small plane, or in the manner of a recent Scottish groom, on the cinema screen before the showing of "It's a Wonderful Life!
Whichever way you propose, you have to think about your partner, and the kind of things they love and appreciate.
Celebrity's have had differing ways to propose. Michael Douglas made his proposal to Catherine Zeta Jones memorable through asking her to marry him at the Eve of the Millenium. It was a discreet proposal, balanced very nicely by the huge diamond he gave her.
I personally like recently married, Pier's Morgans approach, where he whisked his girlfriend to Paris and whilst there, presented her with a 1st Edition copy of her favourite author, John Updike's book "Marry Me"
For me personally, I was the one that proposed, quite romantically, I thought!
My proposal to my husband was on the 23rd of August 2003, and was on Tower Bridge in London. I was going to do it on the London Eye, but got the wobbles as I'm scared of heights, and wimped out.
It didn't really go so well as I got turned down, but that is the chance you have to take when laying your heart on the line, its a monumental and life changing decision. Luckily for him, he soon realised what he would be missing, and 6 years later we couldn't be happier.
I wish you all your own romantic story, and even if its not, the fact that someone loves you that much to ask you this amazing question is beautiful indeed.
