Make Her Say ‘I Do’: Uniquely Creative Marriage Proposals
Published on September 24th, 2014 | by Joan Makai
What makes a good marriage proposal? Is it the ring? If it’s the biggest diamond she has ever seen, will she tear up and then say yes? Is it the setting? If I bring her to Venice and pop the question there, will she jump for joy? Will the presence of her friends and family be a huge plus to get a YES?
So many questions, so much stress to plan… It really is difficult thinking of the most romantic and memorable marriage proposal. But there is no need for you to rack your brains about it. We’re giving away some:
The Craziest but Most Romantic Proposal Ideas
Go to Disneyland, the happiest place in the world. This might seem odd for her but time the proposal when the fireworks start and she will love it. Hire a plane and ask her with an aerial banner. Half-time game and live TV proposals may have been done so many times before but it still works.
Putting the diamond ring or proposal note in the weirdest places will be a huge shocker too. Put it in her lunchbox, in her make-up kit, in between the pages of her favorite book, inside the medicine cabinet or container, in an ice cream container or on the menu of your favorite restaurant!
Bring Everyone In to Help
For some reason, flash mob engagement ideas will never get old. She will say yes not just because she loves you but because you have put so much work to it.
Hire a local brass band or the church choir. When you’re in public, have them sing your theme song before you kneel before her, asking for her hand. If she’s a kindergarten teacher, ask help from her cute little students.
A scavenger hunt with the whole family may seem so complicated but if it will make her say ‘I do’, then it’s worth all the hassle!
Just You and Her…
Hey, this is not one of those ‘find the ring in the champagne flute’ engagement ideas. But there is something dreamy about walking down the beach and her finding a ‘message in a bottle’ with the ring in it.
Make a video presentation of your marriage proposal and show it to her, play scrabble and spell out the phrase ‘marry me’, have the pizza delivery guy write your proposal on the pizza box…
Sometimes, these things are just additional ways to show her how much you love her. A perfect proposal depends on what you are willing to do for her pleasure. If your woman is a hopeless romantic and loves elaborate plans, a simple creativity to make your proposal special is really a plus. If your woman tend to favor a simple no-fuss lifestyle then a simple “will you marry me” while having a dinner for two could work. As engagement is just the beginning, popping that question, asking her to spend the rest of her life with you, is really what matters.
