I think every girl hopes for this really romantic proposal but most of the time it just doesnt happen that way. I would just tell him that it doesnt matter how its done, just that you would be happy that he even asked you. I think its very sweet by the way that he wants to ask your dad.

You’ll just have to talk to him about it. Let him know that the important part is that he asks in a heartfelt and meaningful way.

Say something like this: “I love you, and I’m so excited to get engaged. I know you’re nervous about doing things the right way, but what’s most important to me is that you’re yourself and your words come from the heart. And even though I know we talk a lot about everything in our lives, it’s making me anxious that you bring the proposal up all the time. I’m really excited about it too, it would just make it even better if I didn’t know all the details”

I agree that you need to just talk to him and tell him that there is no right way to propose and then actually stick to it!  I’ve heard far too many people who tell their Boyfriend or Best Friend that they don’t really care how just as long as they are proposed to and then aren’t happy with it later.

I second PinkBubbleGum’s idea.
