Which should be done first, ask her parents if she can marry him or him making her a proposal?
Traditionally, the guy would ask the girl's father for her hand in marriage before proposal.
I think you're supposed to ask the parents first.
If she says no does it matter if you have their blessing? Ask her first.
if they 'love' you , the parents would be tickled pink that you asked them for her hand in marriage first !!if they actually say no and feel that its not a good idea.....then you're kind of screwed.
Ask her first and if she says yes then ask her parents for there blessing..
