Tips for Proposing at the NC State Fair

Have a Plan

If you want your fair proposal to be successful, you need to do your research and have a plan. Know her likes and dislikes. For instance, if she doesn’t ride rides then proposing on the Ferris Wheel might not be such a good idea. Find out if she would rather go during the daytime or nighttime. What concerts or events does she want to see? All of the answers to these questions will help you plan your perfect proposal.

Practice What You’re Going to Say

Before you take a knee and ask, be sure to practice what you’re going to say. Don’t shoot from the hip. This is one of the most important events of your life. Stumbling over your words, going off on tangents, and using too many ums and uhs will make you look unprepared. A little practice will go a long way.

It’s All About the Ambiance

Going to the fair is all about having a good time. Make sure that she knows that. Go out of your way to treat her to her favorite foods, rides, exhibits, and more. Your goal is to have one awesome date and the opportunity to pop the big question.
