Well, I would probably be annoyed too. But, I am in kind of the same dilemma and asked my fiancee his favorite style of dress.
I see it as you are his best friend and who better to ask than his best friend? My Fiance and I always are asking eachothers advice, and know that no one else can provide a good answer as to what the other one likes. He asked me to have some basic rules of no-nos for the proposal, (mines was don’t propose off a reader board or tv at a game lol) but I know after that he Has to figure it out. Even if he wanted me to I couldn’t script it, it has to be his choice. So I just told him to be creative. 🙂

Maybe it wasnt so much that he needed help as much as he wanted to give you a proposal that would truly be perfect. My Fiance knew that I am a type A and so he asked me what I “preferred”. I told him first that I would of course love any proposal from him. But did mention I didnt want it to be in an overly public place, that I wanted it to be on a weekend so I can enjoy it before going back to work and things like that. Whether he followed or not, was his call. He took my “tips” and some other things I had mentioned over the months (like my parents being there, even though they live 7 hrs away) and gave me the most amazing proposal ever. I never saw it as meaning he didnt know me, or know what I would like. You only do it once, so I was happy he wanted to make sure it was true perfection.
