Take it from me, if you’re going to propose marriage and have the engagement ring already, one of the most stressful things you will have on your plate is taking care of the ring itself. Once you have the perfect marriage proposal idea you will be a nervous wreck trying to figure out the best way to hide the ring up until it’s on her finger. In all my years proposal planning, I want to offer a few tips for how to properly hide an engagement ring on your proposal day.
In Engagement Ring Box on You
This one may seem obvious but the biggest problem with these boxes is that they’re really large. Engagement ring boxes look gorgeous when you’re actually on bended knee presenting the ring but if you’re trying to remain inconspicuous, it’s hard to do with with a huge box on your pocket. To go about this, you can try wearing loose clothing on the day of. If it’s the summer time, you can even try putting it in your back pocket and I’ve even seen one guy put it in his sock. Whatever works for you.
In Engagement Ring Box Handed to You or Placed Somewhere
If you’re going to keep the ring in it’s box, another option you have is to someone you trust at the proposal handing it to you. I did this for a proposal at a skating rink for a guy that knew he couldn’t hide the box. Right at the moment he was going to propose on the rink I subtly walked by and handed him the box. Depending on your proposal idea, you may also have it placed somewhere beforehand so your girlfriend will discover it there as your propose. Again, this depends on your engagement idea and you will have to ensure it’s safe.
Without The Box in Your Pocket
This is how I carried the ring when I proposed to Michele. It’s not the most striking when you’re on bended knee, but that’s what makes the rest of the proposal more important. If you know that you can’t hide the box on you, then carrying the ring in your pocket is good. If you’re wearing jeans, then that little small pocket on your right front is perfect for concealing the ring.
Hidden in An Ornament
This one takes more thought and is also heavily dependent on your marriage proposal idea. You can do something like pretend to give her a nice book and the book itself can be hollowed out and have the ring inside. By doing something like this, you can carry around the book without fearing that she will suspect you will be proposing.
