Getting engaged is one of the biggest milestones in any relationship. It is a once-in-a-lifetime event that girls dream of probably even as much as their wedding day itself. So if you are ready to pop the question and ask for your beloved’s hand in marriage, make sure to create something truly remarkable and memorable. Here are some ideas to help you create a proposal story for the books!
Get creative with lights
The great thing about lights is how they can turn even the simplest room into something magical. Picture this: After a romantic dinner, you go back to your flat for coffee. But instead of switching the usual lights, words start to form in the darkness. They could be words describing your feelings, phrases that are meaningful to you both, or even simply what you love most about them. Then at the end of the room, the magic question shines bright: Will you marry me? Now who can say no to that?
Surround her with beautiful things
You do not need a big party to need to style a venue. Any special occasion is a good enough excuse to create beauty in an otherwise ordinary space. Case in point: your proposal. It can be anything ranging from a picnic set-up by the beach, a magical garden in the park, or even adding a touch of whimsy in your own home. By creating a space that is thoughtfully designed with romance in mind, and filled with pretty things, you are immediately giving your partner a unique and memorable experience. And the best part is you don’t even have to lift a finger!
Take her on a private cruise
Go for something truly fancy by popping the question aboard a private yacht. Charter a small boat complete with an attentive crew who will take care of your every need and make your stay smooth and worry-free. You can even hire a chef to create a sumptuous meal you can eat under the stars, surrounded by calm waters, while admiring the city lights from your unique vantage point. It is a fitting way to show your loved one just how special they deserve to feel, and how you want to make sure of it for the rest of your lives.
Go for an exciting drive
Vintage cars may be a popular choice for wedding vehicles, but that’s not all they’re for! You can also rent them out for a special, chauffeur-driven day to a destination of your choice – where you will pop the question in style. As an added bonus, you can even use it in conjunction with your event stylist for a truly grand proposal. You can either use the car to take you to a meaningful spot that has been professionally styled, or you can simply style the car itself and give it your own meaning. Either way, it will be a one-of-a-kind story your soon-to-be fiancé will love telling again and again!
Make it fun with balloons
What could be more festive than balloons? If your girlfriend is playful and fun-loving, she may get a kick out of a really fun proposal. You can order enough balloons to cover the whole floor and set her on a treasure hunt. And hidden amongst all the fun and color will be her beautiful engagement ring! You can also get balloon shapes that could form words, or even just a sweet balloon bouquet, to decorate the walls. Not only is it super memorable, it is also a way for the two of you to have some fun together and bond.
Woo her with flowers
You can never go wrong with flowers: this is a fact of life. For a memorable proposal, take a step further and don’t just make it a day. You can start by sending your special someone a stem of flower, then gradually increasing it each day, until you get to that significant number. Then on that day, you can fill her space with bouquets of her favorite bloom, surrounding her with something truly exquisite as you ask for her hand in marriage. It is a great way to keep her guessing while also building up to the big day – or at least the biggest day so far.
