Making the Decision:
55% of husbands-to-be proposed after picking up subtle hints from their girlfriends. Remember hovering around that jewellery shop window gazing at engagement rings and then buying yourself a wedding magazine “just for fun?”
30% propose as a result of pressure from parents – the classic parent line of “you’re getting on a bit son, don’t you think it’s time you thought about making it more official?”

The stress free option would be to let you choose a ring “post” proposal. But who said romance was dead? 67% of husbdands-to-be purchased an engagement ring before the proposal – with an impressive 87% claiming that their bride-to-be was happy with their choice of ring.
Where is the most popular place to propose?
27% of men said that a beauty spot or place in the countryside, making it the most popular place to pop the question. So if you’re expecting a lavish proposal on a yacht or round-the-world trip, you may just be in for a stroll around the park.
While 20% of men propose on a foreign break like Paris or Rome, 15% propose at home on the sofa and 7% propose in bed. So ladies, men really do pop the question anywhere – so be prepared!
But wherever you’re proposed to – romance is not dead. 71% of grooms still go down on one knee for that all important question.
