Simple proposal in a restaurant

Recommended Posts

I already have the ring and my plan is to propose this month but I still don't have a concrete idea of how to do it. I'm thinking of a simple proposal. After dinner in a semi high-class restaurant, I'm thinking of maybe being led by a waiter outside or to a special room where desert is waiting there and then that is also where I will pop the question. Exactly the same idea in this thread:

im-proposing-next-week-proposal-before-o

 

I don't want anything super fancy. It would be just the two of us and I want it intimate and private. My ears are open to any alternatives. Can you please help?

Thanks.

FWIW, I'd simplify the plan a bit. Why don't you ask the restaurant to give you a special table, set aside (as much as poss) from the rest of the guests right at the start, rather than waiting for the end of the meal? I think that explaining the situation will get you a lot of attention/goodwill from the restaurant manager. That way you can enjoy each other's company a bit more, and you have a choice of moments during the evening - you never know where the conversation may lead... and when may be the best possible moment to say "and by the way, I just wanted to ask..."

One caveat, if you are outside, use a fake ring or tie a bit of fishing line to it, until it is safely on her finger (or you are back inside and you are sure it fits). Too many horror stories of "I proposed, and 30 seconds later we lost the ring".

That's also one option I was thinking about. In the restaurant I called, there is a private dining room that we can be at though I still kind of feel doing it at the end of the meal. I want the place to be memorable but not too romantic that it could give away what I'm about to do at the end. She knows that I'm not a romantic person so she will easily detect that something is up if she sees something unusual about the place :)
