A marriage proposal is something you hopefully only do once in your life so you want it to be perfect and memorable. A marriage proposal doesn’t have to be elaborate and over the top, unless this is the way you and your loved one would prefer it. The most important thing is that it is done with the right intentions and honesty. Do remember that this is a story you’ll be telling for the rest of your lifes, so make sure to make it special…

Here are a few ideas on how you can do it:

#1. The classic First Date location to pop the question is a given hit as it gives you the perfect location to reminisce a little about the journey you’ve had so far. You can then smoothly change the subject to your next step in the relationship where you go down on your knees and propose…

#2. Another classic is to do it on your partners birthday or any other occassion when gifts are common. Wrap the ring in a box inside another bigger box, inside another bigger box and so on… We think you get the idea! Your loved one will think the present is very very large and as each box is opened, the laughs will grow. and eventually when your loved one reaches the last box get down on one knee and pop the question…

#3 Give your loved one a full body sensual massage, and save the left hand for last. As you massage that hand, slip the ring on and be ready to pop the question.

#4 If you both fancy going out for dancing, ask the DJ to slip you the microphone during the night so you can propose from stage infront of the entire club. Make sure to have prepared a short but full of love speech not to disturb the other guests too much so you won’t risk of having someone interrupting you whilst proposing.

#5 If you enjoy playing trivia games together, pop the question when it is your loved one’s turn and casually say “Your question is: Will you marry me?” rather than the question written on the card. Make sure to go down on your knee the second after the question has been popped and to bring out the ring in the box to show your loved one that this was a serious question to avoid confusion.

#6 Let your partner go on a sweet note scavenger hunt and place sweet notes in different spots around the house or outside. On each note, write something that you love about your loved one, and a clue or direction to where to find the next note. In the last note say “For all these reasons and more, I wish to spend the rest of my life with you. Will you marry me?” Be prepared to pop out yourself when your loved one reaches the last spot and reads the last note so you can go down on one knee and do it properly as well.

#7 Slip the ring on your loved one’s finger while they are sleeping and wake them up with a very special breakfast of champagne and strawberries or homemade waffles in the shape of a heart with fresh fruit and cream. At first, the gesture will seem simply romantic but the real surprise comes when your loved one notices her new piece of jewelry. A warning though, this only works for loved ones who are heavy sleepers and don’t wake up easily! It is also a good idea to keep a back-up plan ready if your loved one would wake up whilst you are putting on the ring on their finger…

#8 Go out for a drink at a fancy hotel bar. When it’s time to go, casually mention that you’ve already reserved a room for the night so you don’t have to head home. When you open the hotel room door, have roses, candles and champagne all set up, so you have everything ready for a perfect surprise proposal. Or, give your friends the spare keys to your home and ask them to help you out decorating it whilst you are out, so that once you come back, everything is ready for a perfect and intimate proposal.

#9 Plan a surprise trip! Use blindfolds and circuitous routes to get to your location. When you get there, pop the question and make sure the location is prepped beforehand with something special, or bring along a bottle of champagne and roses. If you’re planning to stay overnight, don’t forget to pack a bag for your loved one!

#10 Restaurant proposal are always a classic and appreciated as well, so why not take your loved one out to a a romantic restaurant and make sure to call ahead and let them know your plans so they can help you make this night special. What some restaurants do is that they let the ring come in with the dessert wine or with the entrees depending on when you feel is the best time to pop the question. Some restaurants can write a special message on the plate for you or bring in the ring box along with the dessert tray.

Proposal Idea #3 – Elaborate but still intimate proposal

Looking for an elaborate but more intimate proposal? This could be for you

We specially love that they’ve only used friends and family in an more intimate and secluded setting where you won’t receive hundreds of bypassers viewing, or disturbing your proposal. As they filmed all her reactions as well, it truly makes a memory for life for both of them.

This is perfect for you if your loved one woudln’t appreciate a public proposal but you still want to do it a bit more elaborate…
