Absolutely! Mistakenly, a lot of people save money for an engagement ring yet they save no money for the actual proposal. The first question people will ask your partner once they announce their engagement is, “How did he propose?” Don’t you want the story that they will tell their friends, family, and your future children to be a good one?
You should spend what you feel comfortable spending. You should look at your budget and figure out how much you can spend realistically. I have seen people spend $100 to $5000 on their proposals. Keep in mind, it isn’t how much you spend that makes a great proposal; it’s the small details that create the most impact.
At a bare minimum you should give yourself at least 30 days to plan an amazing and well thought-out proposal. 6 months would be even better though.
That all depends on what kind of person your partner is. If your partner is a very extroverted person that loves to be the center of attention, then a public proposal might be the right move. However, if your partner is introverted and likes to keep things private, it is probably not the right idea.

No matter if your partner knows it may be coming soon, they will not know how or when it will happen. That is the surprise. And while you do want it to be a surprise, anticipation is a good thing. That moment right before you propose when your partner is feeling butterflies and thinking, “Is this it?” is all part of the magic in a proposal.
The best thing you can do is to infuse your proposal with details about your partner and your relationship. Think about what her favorite things are or what his hobbies are. Don’t forget about inside jokes.
Most definitely. At a bare minimum, have a photographer nearby to capture one of the most special days of your lives. Your partner will be so happy that you took the care to document the moment.
If you want to plan the best proposal possible with the least amount of stress, you should hire a Proposal Planner. A Proposal Planner will help create the perfect proposal concept and execute the idea.
Definitely tell the least amount possible so that there is little chance of your surprise being ruined.
