But one man was taking no chances when it came to his future fiancée not liking her sparkler, so much so that he decided to propose with not one but six potential engagement rings.

Model and former professional athlete Dennis Brown II wanted everything to be perfect when he popped the question to his girlfriend Atara Dallas.
So much so that he hired an event planning and styling firm, a professional photographer, florist and drapery design to capture the special moment.
But it was his decision to have a choice of six potential rings that really upped the ante on proposals for men (and women) everywhere!
The rings, which were all different shapes and sizes, obviously did the trick as an overwhelmed Atara accepted his planned-to-perfection proposal choosing a teardrop shaped sparkler, which looked beautiful.
Taking to Instagram to share the images captured by photographer, Nathaniel Veal, the groom explained why he chose to give his bride-to-be a choice of six.
“I won at life with her, so she deserves 6 rings to choose from,” he captioned the pictures.
“A woman, whose heart is full of love and devotion to me, a woman whose loyalty to all those she loves stands unmatched, a woman whose generosity and willingness to help others around her flourish knows no depths,” he continued.
We are in engagement season. This proposal from this weekend was amazing. Planned to perfection by Khia at @themeit_inc … we look forward to working with them on many more amazing proposals during this engagement season. Fellas if you need help planning the perfect proposal check em out! Can’t wait to share more from this amazing day!

Interestingly online reactions to the proposal were somewhat mixed.
Many thought the gesture was total #proposalgoals
“This is the sweetest most precious story! My daughter and I are melting over your romantic gesture to make sure your bride has what she wants,” one user wrote.
“You’re a very thoughtful and romantic man. You’ve set the bar extremely high for guys who want to propose.”
But of course some people had to put a negative spin on the sweet moment by suggesting the real reason Dennis needed six rings is because he didn’t know his girlfriend well enough to make the choice for her.
Just hope he has the receipts to return the other five rings.
