Love is one of the most heartfelt emotions known to human beings.
There are many forms of love, but most people seek its expression in a romantic relationship with a compatible partner. People invest their emotions and energy to make their relationship work and last forever. Your feeling just seems to grow for one another day by day and your bond seems unbreakable.
Even the thought of staying away from them for a single moment makes your heart clench. This is when you realize that you want to spend your entire life with this person.
It’s an exciting and happy time in any relationship when you have brought the ring and are now looking for some amazing ideas to pop the question.
You’ll always want to keep your proposal story special and unique
But, when it comes to thinking about wedding proposal ideas, you may feel a bit overwhelmed. You may have heard some epic proposal stories from family members or friends, but you’ll always want to keep your special and unique.
A proposal would, hopefully, occur once in your lifetime, so you’ll want it to be perfect and memorable.
Everyone you know will always want to know the story of your proposal so to make it worth telling.
Put your own spin on one of these romantic, and foolproof, proposal ideas:
1. Choose a favorite place
Whether it’s a fountain, hotel rooftop, favorite cafe or a park—that has personal significance to the two of you. Once you’re there, ask someone around you to take a picture of you together, and instead of posing, surprise her by drop down on one knee.
2. Send your unsuspecting fiance-to-be on a treasure hunt that ends with your proposal
Start by placing a clue at home, which could be a handwritten note or text message. Place more clues at your favorite spots all over town that will lead them to the proposal spot.
3. Ask the divers at an aquarium to perform a proposal show inside their biggest fish tank
Ask them to hold a (waterproof) sign that says, “Will you marry me?” up against the glass and then position yourselves at the front for the crowd to cheer for you.
4. Dedicate a romantic song and propose
Go out for a night out of dancing and request the DJ to pass you the mic so you can dedicate a romantic song and propose on the dance floor.
5. Spell out your proposal for everyone around to see
One fantastic idea is to hire a skywriter to spell out your proposal for everyone around to see and make your proposal worth remembering.
6. A beachy proposal
Go to the beach and build a sandcastle together at a safe distance from the ocean (so that it isn’t ruined the moment you build it!). When your partner isn’t looking, place the ring on top of the highest tower.
7. A balloon carrying each of the letters of your marriage proposal
Gather your friends and family for a party and have everyone wear a T-shirt or carry helium-filled balloons (so that they can float), carrying each of the letters in the phrase, “Will you marry me?” Then after sometime suggest snapping a group picture to reveal the message.
8. Spell your proposal out with glow-in-the-dark star stickers
Another romantic idea is to spell your proposal out with glow-in-the-dark star stickers on your ceiling.
Get into bed, switch the lights off and wait for the gasp.
9. Photo memories from your relationship
Fill a room in your home with photo memories from your relationship. You can hang them from fancy balloons using ribbons or cover the walls with them for a jaw-dropping surprise.
You can add some other decorations such as fairy light etc to the room.
10. Outdoor string light proposal
During the holiday season, spell out, “Will you marry me?” on the front of your apartment or lawn using outdoor string lights. Station your partner outside the house and ask someone to flip the switch to reveal the message.
11. Propose as the perfect start to the new year
On New Year’s Eve, take your partner to a romantic spot just before midnight and propose as the perfect start to the new year.
Then celebrate the beginning of a new start with plenty of champagne
12. Use surprise boxes
Use surprise boxes that are also known as pop-up boxes. Fill the box with pictures of you two together, add some fairy lights and chocolates to it. When your partner lifts the lid, a big balloon will fly up with “Will you marry me?” written on it.
It’s a fun and creative idea that will bring a big smile upon your soon-to-be fiance’s face
13. Take them to the beach for a perfect dinner date
After the dinner, propose by getting down on one knee and let the sky fill with some gorgeous fireworks to add more excitement to that moment.
14. A trail of candles
Make sure the lights are turned off in your apartment and make a trail of candles that leads to a circle of flowers positioned around the ring.
15. A five-star-worthy meal
Prepare a five-star-worthy meal for your soon-to-be fiance, or hire a personal chef for the night and propose over some delicious dessert!
