A proposal is a very important time in both a man and woman’s life. It is the benchmark for what the future can hold. It is a portal to the next level of a relationship. So when you know that the person is right, and you have looked for the perfect ring,
it is time to plan the special day that will lead things to the big day. There are many different ways to propose and it all depends on the kind of relationship you have. Whether your favorite thing is to have quiet romantic nights at home, or go rock climbing, incorporate something usual or go in the total opposite direction. Let’s take a look at some of my favorite ideas.
The best romantic ways to get engaged include the hobbies of your fiance to be. For example, if she’s anything like me, she loves puzzles and challenges. You can create a puzzle or word search with the words “will you marry me” for her to figure out. If she’s more family oriented, you can ask her family members to wear t-shirts you’ve made that say the special quote, “will you marry me”. When you give them a cue, they can reveal your intentions.
You can go to a store for or save an old empty box from your last appliance purchase. Whether it’s a computer, printer, or television box it will suffice. Have it gift wrapped as you would any special gift for her. After rummaging through all of the foam and plastic you would have filled it with and she finds the cute little box taped to the bottom, she will most likely be speechless. But now would be your time to speak anyway.
Making a website with all of the things that she likes adorning her is another creative idea. Make up a story about something she has to see on this website. Don’t give her too much info but talk the site up so she knows it wouldn’t be a waste of time to check it out. After she has officially said “yes” you guys can send the web address to your friend and family to let them read the good news. This is a great idea to build on for the wedding theme too.
A more frugal idea would be to commission a limo service so that you guys can ride around in style for 2.5 hours, and drive around to romantic areas for an hour. Whether it’s a beautiful look out point or pier to watch the boats come in. Have the driver stop at a place that holds special meaning to the two of you and pop the question. Then, after she says yes you can spend the last hour of your drive enjoying your first hour as an engaged couple.
Lastly, if you have a little extra paper to spend the newest thing trending now is destination proposals. Choosing a special location for a proposal can be a great way to incorporate this location into the future wedding.
This would be a great idea to just get away just the two of you and start planned your lives together as husband and wife. By selecting a romantic destination, the couples can come back and plan an elaborate wedding. It’s also a good way to combat the stress of wedding planning as most of these destinations are all inclusive.
