Depends on what you want. I would just assure him that you aren’t expecting a parade.

I feel bad for guys. It seems like girls put so much pressure on the proposal. I’m not saying that you are! I’m just saying that it seems like a no-win situation. It has to be a surprise, but it has to be exactly her fantasy, but how can it be her fantasy is it’s a surprise?

Maybe you could wait for a moment like someone proposing in a movie or something and say, “I think it’s more adorable when a guy (insert proposal method).” Or maybe have a friend or relative take him aside and say, “I heard you guys are seriously considering getting married. You know, Miss Hobbit mentioned once that she would love to be proposed to (insert situation).” Either way, even if he never finds out, I think you might be pleasantly surprised by how much you love whatever he decides to do – even if it’s not your dream proposal. Especially, if he’s a perfectionist. That boy is gonna do things right. 🙂 Good luck. Let us know how you let him know. It’s a bit of a catch 22 like Miss HoneyBun mentioned.

I would just say some things you would hate, like my SO knows I would absolutely hate it if a billion people were watching or all my friends/family were invited.  Then it’s trusting him that he knows what you like so he can still plan.
