Marriage Proposal: The Ten Commandments of Popping the Question

We here at the Waterfront Historic Kent Manor Inn have seen our share of weddings, but what you might be surprised to learn is that we’ve seen a lot of proposals take place here as well! Couples book a getaway weekend here and our nervous grooms-to-be have tremendous opportunities on our 220 acres of beautifully manicured land. This is especially important if you’re planning on getting photos of the big moment. So if you’re thinking of popping the question, we found this great article from The Plunge, who shared all of the things we agree are extremely important!

Here’s a quick summary:

  1. Don’t be Surprised
  2. Do Surprise Her
  3. Only Go Public if it’s a Lock
  4. Personalize
  5. Guard the Ring Like it’s Your Precious
  6. Take a Knee
  7. Keep Heavy Eye-Contact
  8. Actually Have a Ring
  9. Practice
  10. The Setting Trumps Size
