The Most Fun and Special Proposal

By Henrietta Baw

The proposal is one of the most important parts of your relationship. Friends and relatives will ask you to recount the story of your proposal. Years after you're married, your children or even your grandchildren will always ask how you proposed. I'm not putting pressure on you here but it can't hurt to have more than a few marriage proposal ideas up your sleeve. Besides, you do want to make her happy, right? If you're interested to learn more about marriage proposal ideas, read on!

Marriage Proposal Idea # 1: Go Big Time. If you can afford to spend big, then do it for your proposal. I'm not talking about a fancy dinner, unless it's a fancy dinner in Paris. I'm talking about going the extra mile. Rent an air balloon and sail away in the sky with your girlfriend. Bring along some wine and cheeses or whatever your favorite picnic snacks are. Come dessert, you can pop the question. You may also rent a small yacht and watch the sunset together. Maybe you can even drop anchor near a deserted island where you can have dinner together, complete with a violinist. The more outrageous the idea is, the more memorable the marriage proposal would be.

Marriage Proposal Idea # 2: Spell It Out. Spelling out the question is a cool idea. Some like to write letters to their girlfriends. But I think you can take the idea one step further. For example, you can create a banner to be attached to a plane that says, "Will you marry me?" You can also have your question spelled in a large field where your girlfriend can see it from a plane or helicopter. If your girlfriend is working in a tall building surrounded by other tall buildings, you can have people hold up letters of "will you marry me" stand by the windows of the building her office is nearest to. Just remember to include the name of the person you're asking to marry, or people might wonder for whom that message is for.

Another creative proposal idea is to place an ad in a local newspaper. You could place an outrageous ad in a newspaper asking anyone who was willing to get married to give you a call and include a fictitious phone number. Then when you and your girlfriend are reading the paper together, you could point out the ad as a joke and while she is reading the ad, seize the opportunity to pull out the engagement ring and let her know that you would love to marry her.

If your bride to be is a traditional family girl and will not appreciate grand romantic gestures or cheesy nightclub proposals, then why not arrange to ask for her hand in marriage with her parents and family nearby. She will be overcome with emotion as you share this once in a lifetime moment with her family and loved ones.
