Proposing to the one you love is one of the most important days of your life! It can be very nerve-wracking, but also very exciting, and so you want to plan it perfectly to calm your nerves and ensure it’s a day to remember for you both! In this post we will explore “will you marry me ideas” that will blow your partner away!
Movie Lovers’ Proposal
Are you and your loved one big movie fans? If so, did you know that you can hire out the big screen? Imagine this, you go to see a movie, and just as the lights go down, and you’re waiting for the first ads, up pops a romantic message from you asking your significant other to be yours forever! How magical!
Whether you do this at a normal movie theater or at the drive in, your partner is sure to be shocked and amazed at the effort you have gone to!
Food for Thought
Hiring a personal chef for the evening is a real unique treat, and if you’re super creative you can even ask them to write the message onto a cake or even bake the ring in one! It can be quite costly to hire a personal chef; however, the overall impact is mega impressive and something you don’t do every day, therefore it will definitely be memorable! It also means a night off from cooking and cleaning for you both, which is a huge added bonus!
Relive Your First Date!
Taking them somewhere for a surprise and then reliving every moment of your first date is a really beautiful way of reminiscing and thinking about the years you have had together. Ending the evening with a romantic proposal will just top it off and make it a night to remember, twice! You can even go a step further and buy outfits as close as possible to the ones you wore on that night.
Head to a Quiz!
If you can get hold of the quiz host in advance, this one will be a lot easier, but if you can’t, go to the quiz with the ring in your pocket and try and catch the host before it begins – they are usually more than happy to oblige considering that it is very entertaining for everyone at the event!
Ask them to make one of the questions “XXX will you marry XXX?” and then when he asks the question, pull out the ring and drop to one knee! Not only is it unique, but it will delight the quiz night audience too – hey, you may even get a round of applause!
Call your local planetarium and ask them to project your message in the stars during the show. Stargazing is always romantic, but this adds a whole new twist!
Print all of your favorite photographs of you and your partner, including your favorite memories, and hang them all over the walls of a room, add candles (safety first, make sure the candles are not close to the photos!) and rose petals and you have an extremely special arena for your proposal.
You could even add your photos to a video reel instead of printing them and having a slideshow display on your TV while you say your words will be a sure fire winner and give you a few good giggles at your silliest memories.
A very unique idea is to make your own soy candle, and put the ring inside the candle. The nice thing about this proposal is that it’s going to be a surprise for you both when the ring surfaces through the wax. It also means you’re going to have a number of candlelit romantic nights watching movies and spending quality time together while you wait for the ring to make its appearance, so it’s a really beautiful way of sharing some moments together.
Get the Kids Involved
If you have children in the family, getting them involved is a lovely idea. You can get really creative here: you can have them make signs, record a video, or just teach them to ask the question if they are very small. It is guaranteed to melt your partner’s heart and is a lovely way to make the event inclusive of the whole family.
If you have a baby, getting them dressed on a morning in a t-shirt that displays your message will be a welcome sight for your significant other.
Write a Song/Karaoke
If you play an instrument, fantastic! However, if you’re not particularly musical, a really simple way to do this is to get a karaoke backing track from a song you love (perhaps you and your loved one’s favorite song) and re-write the words to they are unique and meaningful to your relationship and include your proposal.
You can then either sing it live at a karaoke session by asking them to play the track and singing your own words, of if you’re not that confident, sing it at home for your loved one in a more private setting. Either way, they will love it and it will be super memorable.
Throw a Party
Invite all your friends and family round for a surprise party and propose in front of them all. It will be a beautiful event for your bride and a huge surprise for all attending who will be over the moon to witness the event!
