HOW TO PROPOSE

Popping the question to your girls might seem like a daunting task, but perhaps these suggestions will take off the pressure!

1. Ask her/them to dinner.

Food makes everything better.  Invite your bestie, or your whole crew, to a favorite restaurant (or somewhere that has sentimental value to you) to take the edge off.  Treat it like a regular get-together, and then ask her/them to be in your bridal party when you feel more comfortable.  Ordering a cocktail beforehand might help too! 😉

2. Enjoy a Spa Day

Nothing takes stress away like a massage.  Ask your gal pals to a spa day and pop the question once your masseuse has gotten the tension out of your body!

3. Host a Movie Night

Ask your girls to stand by your side over popcorn, romcoms, and some candy.

4. Listen to your inner-Elle (Elle Woods, that is!)

A good manicure can brighten the darkest of days.  Whether you go alone beforehand, or bring your BFFs along, one thing is for sure – mani/pedi dates can be the perfect backdrop for asking the big question!

 Good luck popping the question!
