For me, the proposal is even more important than the wedding. I see the wedding as the celebration of the proposal, and I don't want to be celebrating something that I didn't make perfect. It's figuring out what is perfect for us that I'm having a problem with.
I'm recently engaged. I blew all of my rent money, hid the little shiny in my back pocket, and proposed successfully the last night of 2012. The ring doesn't fit quite right and the wedding won't be for another year or two, but none of that really matters after that elusive "yes."
Proposing on Valentine's Day can be tricky. On one hand, it is the most romantic day of the year so it can be a good day to pop the question. On the other hand, proposing on a holiday can turn super cheesy if it isn't done properly.
When it comes to wedding planning, men sadly, but truthfully, have absolutely no say. None. The one shot they've got, however, is in the marriage proposal. Therefore, get creative, get thoughtful, and pull out all the stops, men.
