We've got breaking news in the proposal world today: Kim Kardashian is engaged! Her new fiance, Kris Humphries, popped the question on one knee surrounded by red rose petals spelling out "Will You Marry Me?" The ring was a custom-designed 20.5 carat Lorraine Schwartz stunner. Here's my expert take on their proposal story, and what he did right:
- Have a ring. 20.5 carats? Kris knocked this one out of the park. I hope Kim feels the same way.
- Make it a Surprise. Kris waited in Kim's room to ensure she would be completely taken by surprise. No lame proposal dinners here!
- Consider the Aftermath. Since the future bride is so close with her family, Kris planned an intimate party to celebrate immediately after the engagement. Not only were they able to share the details of the proposal, but could also show off her new bling!
