How to Pop the Question?

The story of how you proposed will be told to friends and strangers for the rest of your lives (no pressure!). Finding creative marriage proposal ideas is tough and a truly great marriage proposal can be very hard to think of. There is a lengthy list of unique marriage proposal ideas – from artsy to outdoorsy ideas, and elaborate to simple ones too. Our advice: Put your own spin on one of these romantic, and foolproof, proposal ideas.

2 - Beach Proposal

Think of somewhere special for the two of you, whether it is a monument, park, fountain, or rooftop. Arrange for a brass band or choir to show up at your favourite place and play your girlfriend’s favourite love song. At the last second, go down on your knee and propose. Or as a variation on the traditional beach proposal, build a sandcastle together. When she’s got her back turned, place the ring on top of the castle.

1 - Engaged Couple

Take her on a romantic gateway, at the end of a day’s sightseeing; go for a relaxing drink in the bar of the hotel you’re staying in. Arrange for the hotel staff to set up candles, flowers, and champagne in your hotel room while you’re in the bar. When you return to your room, you’re all set for a beautiful surprise proposal.

3 - Flash Mob Proposal

You could even plan a scavenger hunt; they are always an entertaining marriage proposal idea. Or go over the board and propose at a movie screening, with a little movie of your own. Flash mobs are getting increasingly popular to propose these days. Talk to you local dance studios to help you plan and choreograph the most exciting proposal ever! After you’ve proposed to your girlfriend, suggest a celebratory drink nearby. Little does she know that you’ve arranged a surprise party here with all your family and friends. Alternatively, if the proposal is in a park, you can organize your friends and family to show up for a surprise celebration once she’s agreed to marry you.

You proposal can be pricey or cheap, small or big, private or public, but the atmosphere must brim with romance. We’re often wary of the “cheese factor” and shy away from roses and their ilk. But not here.

Most importantly, do buy the right ring. Your fiancée will be wearing this ring for the rest of her life, so ensure that you pick the right one. Platinum is the perfect choice for an expression of love that will last a lifetime. Naturally white, the metal never fades or tarnishes with time, just like true love that lasts for an eternity and it is the most secure setting for diamonds and precious stones. Platinum ensures that your most memorable platinum jewellery can be handed down from generation to generation as heirloom pieces. Head over to Precious Platinum to find your perfect ring.

This is it. This is the one moment that belongs only to you and your future wife. Make it last. This is one of the most intimate memories that you will ever share with anyone, anytime, anywhere. Savour it.
