Incorporate Music

It could be a love song, or a song that brings back good memories. One of the best ways of expressing your love is by incorporating music in the background. It instantly gives your proposal the right ambience. You can go the extra mile by recording a self-written song before the proposal. If you want to capture your proposal on film without revealing your plan, opt for a live music or concert wedding proposal. You can contact the band manager to orchestrate a proposal for you.


A Silver Screen Proposal

This cute proposal idea is top 3 for me (and it’s not number 3!). You might have to rent a movie theatre for this. Here is how to go about it; Create a short movie by compiling cute and memorable videos and pictures. Remember what we said about incorporating music into your proposal? Now, arrange for some musicians to sit in the rows of the theatre (this is optional). Seats should be reserved for your family and friends as well. Most movie theatres have repeating advertising slides before the actual movie. Request for your video to be played as a trailer before the movie comes up. At the end of the video, pop the question, with live musicians playing. This unique marriage proposal ensures you have the memory for years to come.

Picnics are incredibly romantic by themselves, but know what would make them extra romantic? A proposal. Marriage proposals should be romantic, memorable and unique  and a picnic marriage proposal ticks all three boxes. The best part about this proposal idea is that you can make it as detailed or as simple as you want. So, pack up a basket filled with his/her favourite foods, fresh fruits and sweet desserts. Be sure to grab some champagne or wine, to celebrate your love. Head out to spend the evening together in a peaceful and romantic location. Make sure you check the weather and choose a sunny day. Bring a camera to take cute pictures of each other having fun or have your photographer in a good hiding place until you’re ready to pop the question.


Propose At A Sentimental Location

For a truly sentimental proposal, choose to propose at a location which means something to the two of you. It could be where you first met, where you shared your first kiss, where you went on your first date or the first place you said, ‘I love you’. This can add more meaning and romance to your proposal. You can add an extra romance with a special little touch, like a bouquet of their favourite flower along with the ring.


A Ski Proposal

If you both love the snow and all things winter, then go skiing. Planning an activity or a trip together, would keep your partner’s suspicions at bay. Besides, a ski proposal is a unique and romantic kind of proposal. Especially if your partner is fascinated by the winter scenery. As you move further down the slope, write love quotes or milestones in the snow and make sure they are visible to you and your partner. The last phrase should be “Will You Marry Me?” As he/she reads this, you get down on one knee. If you’re staying at a resort or hotel, arrange room service or a  spa day to celebrate.

 

Propose During A Hike

Hiking is an important outdoor activity used as a means of exploration, reflection and exercising. But asides those, hiking is a great option when it comes to marriage proposals. It’s a special way to surprise your partner and it is really easy to pull off.  Most especially because of its breathtaking view, serving as the perfect backdrop for one of the biggest moments of your life. The combination of a striking scenery and endorphins will make for a breathtaking experience, making you feel on top of the world (well, technically, you are on top of the world LOL) You can do the proposal with just you two or have friends and family meet you after the hike. If your partner is acrophobic, choose another proposal idea.


Birthday Proposal

Sometimes the best way to surprise your partner with a marriage proposal is by making her special day extra special. You could take her out on a day trip, throw a surprise party, invite her friends and family to dinner. Birthday is the best time to get all friends, family together and a photographer without being suspicious. An intimate proposal with your closest people is the best of both worlds. Birthday proposals can also happen on your birthday. Propose a toast to get everyone’s attention and get on one knee. Tell her that the best birthday present is knowing she will spend the rest of her life with you.

 

Beach Proposal

If you and your partner are fans of the magnificent serenity of the ocean, the beach could be the perfect place to propose. Plan a date night for your proposal at a beach that holds special significance to the two of you. Activities for the perfect beach date should include; adventure sports, taking a relaxing walk, building sandcastles, beach sand drawings. You can take advantage of the beach sand drawing to write out your marriage proposal. Bonus point for proposing at sunrise or sunset. This couple met at a popular reality dating show and had a romantic beach proposal in Malibu, California.


At Home

Sometimes, the simplest proposal ideas are the sweetest. This is the perfect proposal idea if you are looking for a low-key intimate moment especially if your partner is not up for a public proposal. You could do breakfast in bed marriage proposal; pampering her by bringing her a tray of her favourite food and drink in bed. Then popping in the question with a ring, while cozying up in bed. If you want to get creative, bake some cupcakes or any other dessert customized with a ” Will you marry me?” topper or serve her morning cup of coffee with a “Marry me” mug. Don’t hide the ring inside the cake, it’s never a good idea. The cake should come after breakfast has been served. 

If your partner is not a breakfast person, how about you do dinner instead? Opt a dinner proposal with an intimate table for two at home. For a romantic touch, create a dreamy proposal space with red roses, chilled champagne and photos of your dating journey hanging around this space like an art gallery. Make sure you set the mood with the right music. Very important.

 

Using Memories Of Your Love Story

For the sentimental couple and those that are shy or not vocal about how they feel, this one’s for you. Make a story book out of pictures from your relationship milestones to your sillier moments caught on camera. For each photo, add love notes describing how you felt at that moment. This would definitely take you and your partner on a trip down memory lane. Once they are engrossed in nostalgic bliss, finish it up by proposing. Super romantic if this goes with breakfast in bed.

 

A Destination Proposal

My absolute favourite! Jet-off to that city or famous location they’ve always dreamt of visiting and pop the question. Planning your proposal during a vacation together is an amazing idea if you mutually want to go on the trip. You can easily surprise your partner because they would be distracted by the activities you all have planned together. It doesn’t have to be somewhere far away, it could be a cross-country road trip or a weekend getaway. Almost every city has an iconic landmark which would serve as a stunning backdrop for a memorable proposal. Be sure to do your research ahead of time to find a scenic spot where you’d like to propose.


A Scavenger Hunt Proposal

One of the cutest proposal ideas would be staging a scavenger hunt. For you to pull this off successfully, it would require a bit more planning unlike other marriage proposal ideas. Plant each clue (could be notes or cards) at all your favourite spots and places that are meaningful to your relationship and send your partner to visit these places. Be sure to give relatable clues, so she doesn’t give up halfway through the hunt. When she gets to the final destination which leads to you, pop your marriage proposal question.

 

Be sure there’s a photographer or videographer that will document this moment. So that you would have something precious to look back upon after years of marriage. Which one of the ideas above is your favourite? Tell us in the comments below.
