Figuring out the best way to pop the question to your special someone can be overwhelming. At Photobook, we’ve seen that an ultimate unique way to say “I love you!” is with a proposal photo book! And what better time of year to show how much you love your sweetheart than Valentine’s Day.
To help you out with this exciting time, we want to propose some tips to you:
Don’t give away the ending! Avoid giving your partner the feeling of what the book is really about. Pass off the photo book as a gift for Valentine’s Day that celebrates your love for one another.
Your love story. Make it a point to display your images in chronological order. Begin with your puppy love and until you have reached present day. It will be a great trip down memory lane and you can probably laugh at some unfortunate hairdos too!
Size isn’t everything. We have found that smaller book sizes work the best. Book sizes like Small Squares and Medium Landscapes/Portraits should do the trick.
Keep it simple! The more simple the design, the better. Keep the backgrounds black or white and only one or two photos per page. This way, your partner can focus on the photos easier. A good title idea for the cover is “Why I love you” or “Will you be my Valentine?”
Get romantic! Write your partner a love note! But don’t display it until the end. That way they won’t pick up on any hints.
The question… Here it is. The pièce de résistance. End the book with your marriage proposal. Simply said, “Will you marry me?”. When your partner turns to the last page, physically and mentally prepare yourself. Get the ring ready and present it to them just as they finish reading the last page.
There is it. Give the ultimate Valentine’s Day gift this year. A gift that will last forever tied together with long lasting memories.
