With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, love is in the air. While the day is notorious for being the time when people in love express themselves through fancy dinners, romantic gifts, each year a handful of people take the opportunity to turn their romantic celebration up to eleven by popping the question. When it comes to proposing, it may be difficult to decide how, where and when you’d like to do it.
From a simple proposal to an extravagant day of excitement, you want to plan a proposal that reflects your relationship and a day that neither of you will ever forget. Even though there are thousands of ideas out there, how are you supposed to figure out the best way?
How you ask the question is pretty important, but where you ask can make some of the greatest memories. After all, if it’s Valentine’s Day, you want to make it extra romantic. One particularly romantic proposal idea, is to take your relationship back to the start and pop the question at the place you and your partner first met; the first place you kissed or the first place you said “I love you.” The location will be a story your partner will love to share for years to come.
Don’t be stuck on that idea if it doesn’t speak to you, choosing a place you’ve already been to. For a truly memorable proposal, why not take a long weekend to a romantic getaway? You could pick a favourite spot you’ve visited together before, or somewhere you’ve both always planned on going. Or you can keep it simple by spending a romantic afternoon sharing a picnic.
Hire a musician
One wedding proposal idea is to hire a musician or band to play near where you propose. The beautiful sounds will help it feel all the more magical and special.
If a restaurant is in your plans, start off by selecting someplace truly special – perhaps a usual favourite of yours, or one with magical ambiance. You may ask the staff to bring out the ring on a dessert plate! Why not in a glass of wine! You can bring roses, chocolates and whatever is meaningful to you both, that way your photos will come out extra special.
Capture the Moment
It all happens so fast. Once it’s all over, you will be happy you hired a proposal photographer / videographer to capture the emotion on that Special day. This will allow you and your fiancé(e) to show off your memories for the years to come.
