I have never heard of prepping for a surprise. Seems counterproductive since  a surprise is supposed to be just that. A surprise.

Try to lower your expectations in case he doesn’t propose… but just in case, do your nails and moisturize your hands!

 Awww that is so awesome!! I have to agree with the “don’t get your hopes up mentatlity” just so that 1. you will live in the moment and not be distracted by the “when is it going to happen” and 2. so that you won’t be totally crushed if it’s not this particular weekend. 

With that being said, I say get your nails done, make sure your hair is how you like it, you love and feel good in your outfit and you do your make-up perfect that day ๐Ÿ™‚ You got this girl and I’m rooting for y’all! Hope it does happen this weekend!! Let us know how it goes!

I’m on the don’t get your hopes up train too. I would make sure nails we’re done and hands moisturized. I’d also make sure you’re happy and look good in the outfits you choose.

I’d make sure your schedule is clear a few hours after the proposal so you can call everyone!

Since you know it’s a carriage ride and fancy dinner, I would dress up as per usual “fancy night out” outfit. Maybe just nothing too sexy, maybe more towards something classy. And easy to get in and out of the carriage without flashing anyone lol…

๐Ÿ’… moisurize your hands, maybe go to a salon and get a parafin dip. Plan out the perfect outfit, shoes and makeup. Get your hair done and bring your beautiful self out looking stunning. I don’t know how much makeup you normally wear but I’ve found if I want to give a little oomph without looking too overdone (for me to not contrast with my normal light to no makeup) I’ll do some of those individual clump lashes in the medium and small length so it doesn’t look like I have falsies on but my eyes pop. If he proposed great, if not youll get some awesome pics and I mean come on why wouldn’t you brag a little about your boyfriend taking you for a carriage ride proposal or not.
