BigKK Posted July 18, 2017 Share Posted July 18, 2017 So I have several ideas... I am not sure which to go with. One of my favorites was a friend scuba dove with his girlfriend, and pointed out a cool shell under water and it had a ring in it. It was rather funny since apparently she had zero interest in investigating and he just kept asking her to check it (under water). Our first date was kayaking, so I considered something ocean related. We love hiking, my knee jerk reaction is proposing at the summit. Do I need a photographer? Considered inviting a friend to hike with us and she could just snap some photos. Otherwise I've poked around the internet for some ideas, didn't realize so many people get other's involved. Also traditionally who do you tell? I am going to ask her dad for permission soon, but just dragging my feet. I was hoping he'd visit, but it's not for another 4-5 months. So a phone call will suffice. She has a father and step-father, was going to ask them both. Any tips would be appreciated. If it was up to me, we'd go and get eloped but I know a lot of her and my family would want to celebrate, and more importantly, so will my girlfriend so I suppose I will dance the dance. I have zero direction with the ring besides knowing not to spend a lot (yay), we've talked about it before and she groans everytime a friend of hers has a several thousand dollar ring, but yet they can't afford a house. I went to one ring place and got slightly overwhelmed and sort of a used car feel. I had to repeatedly ask that I don't care to look at anything with 4 digits in the price. I have only told two people about my plans thus far, I have one friend who said she'd help with whatever I need. I keep just asking her for ideas...lol Link to comment
