Tips for Pulling Off a Romantic Restaurant Proposal


For many, Castle Hill dining and watching a movie have become synonymous with romance, but there’s no need to stick to that script when you’re trying to pull off an extra-special proposal. From popping the question in the middle of dinner to getting down on one knee before dessert arrives, there are lots of ways to make sure your partner is completely surprised by your plans for later that night. Here are some ideas and tips for pulling off the perfect romantic restaurant proposal.

Make Sure It’s In an Intimate Location

Choosing the right place is crucial. There are many Castle Hill restaurants with romantic ambience. If you’re at a table for two, it’s easy to speak privately with your partner. You can even request for separate checks or seat yourself in a corner where you’ll be sure to be left alone. However, if you don’t want a private dinner with your other half, then pick an area that has only two-tops, like in a window alcove or semi-private nook. This way, there will be fewer distractions and people walking by while you propose. Just make sure there aren’t any waiters coming by to check on your meal!

Plan What You Are Going To Say

It’s essential to have a clear game plan for when you ask your love to marry you. Asking your partner to marry you is one of those rare moments in life that will only happen once, so it’s best to put some time and thought into it beforehand. If possible, try asking her parents for their blessing in advance so she knows how much they approve of you.

Don’t Forget the Ring

Make sure you know her ring size before making a trip to a jewellery store. Whether she’s seen it in a magazine or has told you, write it down and keep it in your wallet so you don’t get caught empty-handed. Also, make sure to take her friends along for moral support.

Stay Calm

If you feel that your nerves are going to get in your way, have a plan B. If you were planning on proposing at a romantic candlelight dinner and she’s totally not into public proposals, be prepared with another plan. If it’s a nice day out and she has her heart set on going for a walk along lake – propose there!

It’s natural to be nervous on such an important occasion. But if you can keep your cool, you’ll appear much more confident than if you’re fidgety and irritable. Take deep breaths, smile. It helps! Be it a restaurant or Cafe Castle Hill, these tips will help you pull off your proposal.
