Setting the Perfect Mood, Time, and Place for your Wedding Proposal

Proposals nowadays have been mostly unique and exciting for both couples. There are a lot of men who make their proposals perfectly out of the box. Every proposal should be well planned as this will be the most unforgettable moment for your partner so you must make sure that everything is perfectly set. The right mood, timing, and place should be considered when thinking of a proposal for your partner.

The first thing you would want to do is buy that ideal engagement ring. There are a lot of metals you can choose from when shopping for a ring. Precious metals like gold, silver, and platinum are the most common engagement rings bought in the market. Before purchasing that perfect engagement ring, you need to spy on your partner’s style. Does she like classic style gold jewellery or she prefer simple but elegant sterling silver jewellery? Next is the most challenging part, finding her ring size. If you are planning a surprise wedding proposal, asking her directly for her ring size will not be the best option for you. Sneak out of her jewellery box find a ring that she mostly wears on her ring finger, measure how far it can fit with your finger, and take a note of it. It doesn’t necessarily need to be that expensive; if you don’t have enough budget for a Platinum ring, then you can option it out and choose either a Silver Ring or white gold ring, the former being the cheapest among the three, while mens tungsten rings have also become popular of late.

The mood and timing should be well observed when setting a proposal. You should consider the situation your partner is in to. Does she have commitments at work that she needs to finish overtime for a week or so, or is she’s working to meet a deadline for her business? You must choose a date that both of you are stress-free and will not conflict with other priorities at work. Most of the wedding proposals happen on a holiday, probably because at this time both of you are relaxed and away from your daily work routine.

The finale of your planning is to choose the right place to pop that question to your partner. Think if you wish to propose to her in a private venue where both of you can reminisce that moment, or if you want to propose to her in front of her family and friends. A casual and cosy restaurant is where most of the proposals happen. It will be more romantic if you bring your spouse-to-be in a memorable place for both of you, like where you first met, where you went on your first date, or at her favourite restaurant. If you’re thinking of proposing and would want to share the joy with her loved ones then proposing on her birthday party where all her family and friends are there can be the best proposal time and place for you to ask that special question – will you be my forever love?

Growing the Game

Growing the Game

Football is undoubtedly a sport that needs a mixture of skills and athletic ability. Normally, if the players are permitted to slop through it during practice, they stand an extremely good possibility of doing something similar in a game. They have to be quick to make aggressive moves in this sport. This is an intense sport and not to be taken lightly. It involves a lot of physical exertion and a lot of commitment regarding training and dedication.

Football is by far the most well-known and one of the highly rated sports, and there’s zero doubt why it’s impossible to continue to keep adults and kids off it. Football is gaining a lot of traction, even in New Zealand, where the game has not received the following possibly due to the popularity of rugby here.

In South America, kids start with the ball at the age of three and by the time they turn seven, become seasoned players ready to train for the next league. This, of course, equates to the massive pool of talent that comes out of these countries, as football is a religion here.

In New Zealand, because rugby dominates the winter training season, there isn’t much room for football to grow except if we promote more of the game indoors. Indoor football is played in a variety of sports centres around the nation. Coaches will have the ability to teach the players the basics of the game and learn the fundamentals and skills needed which can obviously be applied outdoors.

The short summer that we get is dominated by cricket, and while football is catching up, there isn’t much money being spent to raise awareness nor attract talent. To promote this at the school level as we discussed above is too late, how are we going to catch up with the South American kids who have four years of dribbling experience. While we have done great to come up with the All Whites who are competent, we still have years of work to do be right there playing in the big league and we need to start the work from the grass root.
