You’ve found someone you want to spend the rest of your life with. How beautiful is that! But before you’ll get married, you’ll have to propose. And that’s obviously not something you do every day (and hopefully you’ll do once in your life). In other words: it’s a pretty good reason to make it a special moment, right? We’re here to inspire you with a list of marriage proposal ideas your significant other only can say yes to.
1. Take the stage
Is your loved one fan of a certain band or artist? Get tickets the next time they are in town and let the lead singer ask for you from the stage. It might not be the easiest option, but if you put some effort in it, it’s not impossible. So, just email or message the artist or the management through social media and maybe you’ll have the coolest proposal ever.
2. Write it in the snow
What better way to ask her/him at one of the most beautiful places in the world: on the slopes? If you’re both into winter sports, this is a proposal idea to consider. It will provide a stunning backdrop for your big moment. Plus, it’s relatively easy to arrange. Book a holiday, (let someone) write ‘will you marry me?’ under the ski lift and go up right away. Make sure to hold the ring tight though; you wouldn’t be the first one to drop it.
3. Play a Trivia game
If you’d like to keep it a little more low-key or rather propose at home in an intimate setting, we also have a good proposal idea: play a Trivia game together. When it’s the turn of your lover, casually ask the big question: “will you marry me”, instead of what’s on the card. We’re pretty sure it will be a big surprise!
4. Let the dog bring it
Who doesn’t love puppies? Yup, nobody. So, with this proposal idea you can’t go wrong! Tie the ring or a message around the puppy’s (or anyone else’s puppy’s) collar and you’re sure to be engaged a few seconds later.
5. Use the loudspeaker of the airplane
Ever thought of proposing using the loudspeaker of an airplane? Probably not. But it’s fun and romantic! Plan a holiday to a romantic destination, and ask the flight attendants if you can fire the question during the flight. Love is in the air! 😉
6. Do a message in a bottle
Can you imagine how surprised your soulmate would be if she/he finds your “will you marry me?” message in a bottle? And no, you don’t have to go to the other side of the ocean to set this up. Simply suggest a walk on the beach and ask a friend to place the bottle on a certain spot. This is probably the most romantic proposal idea from this list!
7. Show up in a heart suit
This is another proposal idea that will put an instant smile on everyone’s face. Unexpectedly show up somewhere in a crowded street while wearing a heart suit and bend on your knee in front of everyone passing by. Applause guaranteed!
8. Write it down during a scrabble game
Spell out your proposal during a romantic, competitive game night. Just cheat a little bit by collecting the letters you need for the big question in advance, and all you’ve left to do is place it on the board whenever the ‘W’ of ‘Will you marry me’ is ready for you.
9. Use glow in the dark
Want to surprise your special person in the most intimate room of the house; your bedroom? In that case we have an uncommon & creative proposal idea for you. Spell your question out on the ceiling with glow-in-the-dark stickers. Turn off the lights, get down on one knee next to bed with the ring, and wait for the whoop!
10. Draw with GPS
To get this next-level proposal idea done, you need a GPS-tracking app (such as Strava, Map My Run, and Garmin), and you’ll need to find a location where you can spell out your proposal. By pausing the GPS app and restarting it at different locations, you can draw lines across the map. (Think of it as a connect the dots puzzle). This is obviously not the easiest proposal idea of this list, but totally worth the effort if you ask us!
