Homemade Marriage Proposal Ideas
Assemble a whole lot of your family and friends for a celebration and have everyone put on a Tshirt or carry balloons filled with helium (otherwise they won't float) bearing one of the letters in the phrase, "Will you marry me?" Afterward during the celebration suggest a group photograph to show the message.
Spell your proposal out in glow-in-the-dark star stickers on your ceiling. Get into bed, turn the lights off and await the gasp. Refrigerator magnet letters work also!
Throwback to your youth with a proposal composed in sidewalk chalk in your street or drive.
Create makeshift letters that spell out, "Will you marry me?" using anything from colored duct tape (against a wall or a piece of poster board) to scrapbooking materials. Surprise your partner with your creation on the job home or the park. (Not crafty? Hire a graffiti artist to write out an arty marriage proposal in enormous letters!)
Public Marriage Proposal Ideas
Pick a favored place—whether it is a fountain, hotel rooftop, monument or national park—that's personal importance to the two of you. Once you are there, ask someone nearby to shoot an image of you together, and instead of posing, drop down on one knee.
Have a choir, brass band or drum line show up for a surprise performance of your fiance-to-be's favorite love song in a park or public place for your suggestion. If they could include your fiance's name into the lyrics for a truly personal contact, ask the performers.
Get in touch with all the stage manager of your favourite production and propose after the curtain call of the cast. Phone ahead of time and see if you're able to get ad placement or a special note added into the playbill, which means you've got a keepsake of the proposal.
Arrange a surprise proposal with a street caricaturist. Possess the caricaturist sketch an image of you two with word bubbles that say, "Will you marry me?" and "Yes!"
Ask the divers at an aquarium to put on a proposal show inside their biggest fish tank. Give them a (waterproof) signal that says, "Will you marry me?" to hold up against the glass and then place yourselves for what will, at first, look like feeding time.
Send your unsuspecting fiance-to-be on a treasure hunt that ends with your proposal. Begin with a hint at home (a handwritten note or text message) that leads to a tour of your favorite spots all over town.
Go outside for a night of dancing so you can dedicate a song and request the DJ or bandleader to pass you the mic and propose on the dance floor.
Hire a skywriter to spell your suggestion out for everyone about to see.
Take out a full-page advertisement in a paper, then select the perfect area to truly have a relaxing morning of catching up on current events. Another spin on this notion would be to call into a radio station then make sure that your fiance-to-be when your proposition is on the air, is listening.
At Home Marriage Proposals
Fill a favorite room in your house from your relationship with picture memories; them can hang from balloons or cover the walls for a jaw-dropping surprise with them.
Turn off every one of the lights in your flat and make a trail of candles that leads to a circle of votives positioned throughout the ring.
Slip the ring on while your soon-to-be fiance is sleeping and then do a romantic morning wake -up call with champagne and strawberries.
Tie a red velvet ribbon from one spot in your home to another. Attach little notes remembering perfect moments in your relationship along the way. Wait for your partner in the end of the ribbon together with the ring in hand.
Cook a five star-worthy meal of all your fiance-to-be's favorite foods, or hire a personal chef for the night. Propose dessert around!
Have a custom jigsaw puzzle made with your picture and the words "Marry me?" On a rainy day, when you have ended enough that you read the words and can clearly see the photograph, and indicate this task, it is time to propose! (Hint: This functions nicely with Scrabble also.)
Holiday Marriage Proposal Ideas
On New Year's Eve, sneak away to a romantic place just before midnight and propose as an ideal beginning to the brand new year. Then celebrate with a kiss and a lot of champagne.
Surprise your fiance using a pet you've always liked to get together (bunny, kitten, puppy) under the Christmas tree and tie the ring around its neck. Or substitute a stuffed animal— adorable, but less maintenance!
On the days leading up to February 14, plant Valentine's Day cards (such as those you used to give out to classmates in third grade) with sweet messages written inside around the home. Then on Valentine's Day, present them with a box of chocolates containing, you guessed it, the ring.
Propose during your local fireworks show on the Fourth of July. Work with a professional to set up a private message in sparklers that spells out "Marry me?"
Throw a Halloween jack-o'-lantern carving competition for friends as well as family where everyone reveals their layouts. Unveil your pumpkin carved with your proposal last.
