Marriage Proposal Ideas


It’s time for a marriage proposal to that special someone. There are many ways to propose that he or she will remember for a lifetime and doing so without having to spend too much money. Surveys have shown that many people were a little disappointed in how their partner proposed to them. This is a life changing experience and something that you and your partner will want to remember and share with your kids and your grandkids some day.


Therefore do your research for proposal ideas and you’re sure to come up with an idea that suits you both. After all, you should know your partner better than anyone else, but if you become unsure, ask her close friends and family for some advice. You only get one shot at this so make sure you do it right and be sure you have some ideas to get your own creative juices flowing. Here are some romantic proposal ideas that will hopefully inspire you to create your own perfect romantic proposal.


1). Take your special someone to the place where you had your first date and re-create it exactly how it happened on that day. Have the same dinner and do the same things you did together that night. At the end take your partner to a special place, such as a park with some sparkling lights and flowers all around, and ask your partner if they remember this place on our first date. They should say no, and then you proceed to say “you may not remember it now, but you will remember it from this moment to the rest of our lives together” and then get down on one knee and propose.


2). If your partner happens to be an avid newspaper reader you could put a picture of them in the paper with a sweet little story on how you two  met, or the reasons why you love them. Then put in big print “will you marry me?” While they’re reading this, get down on one knee and have the ring box waiting for them to see when they look up from reading the paper.


3). Set up a romantic dinner at home with candlelight and music, such as your favorite song together or maybe hire a quartet to serenade him or her. Then prepare your partner’s favorite food or you could hire a private chef to cook it for you. Of course you could always order out take home as well. Either way it’s the thought that counts. Then after dinner you could give her a cake that’s made to look like a ring box, but don’t put the ring in the food because it can dull it and you’ll have to get it cleaned right away. While they are admiring the cake, slip the real ring on to the table.

4). A fun way to propose is to send your partner out on a scavenger hunt. Give them a list of the things to find. The list should have some kind of meaning to it. For example, have them find a menu from the first place you ate at together. Have them find the special things that have meaning in your relationship and with each item on the list that they find leave a note with a reason why you love them along with a rose. At the end they will have collected eleven roses. The final search will lead them to meeting you somewhere special, where you will be waiting with the twelfth rose, along with the ring.


5). Set up a beautiful picnic at the beach with their favorite foods. Write her a sweet poem or maybe a song. It doesn’t matter if you have a great voice or not, it’s the meaning that counts. However, if you’re a little embarrassed you could ask someone to do it for you. Then write in the sand will you marry me or you could also use a bunch of sea shells to spell it out. Hire a professional photographer to capture your both from a distance and then surprise him or her with the photos and or a slide show.


6). Have your partner ask for a day off from work, but secretly talk to their boss and try to get them a week off instead. If granted, take them on a romantic vacation. Have her friends or family members pack her a bag so that you can pick it up and off you go to the airport or drive to your destination right
