Taking that big step to ask your partner to spend the rest of their lives with you is a pretty enormous task. Understandably, you may be overwhelmed with anxious thoughts. Whether you opt for a grand gesture or choose to keep things low-key will depend on the nature of your relationship. Regardless, it’s a bold move and you’ll certainly want it to be memorable. Here are a few creative ideas that you could potentially use to orchestrate your very own unique marriage proposal:
If living through a pandemic over the past year has taught us anything, it is that we live a great deal of our lives in digital spaces. Why not try to use digital media in a unique way to pop the question? If their family is important to them, perhaps you could get them all involved using a group conference call chat. Alternatively, you could rent a movie theatre and organize a screening of a special movie for the two of you before popping the question. If they enjoy gaming, you could do something fun using a VR headset. Technology provides a lot of scope for creativity, so if you’ve got the skills for it, use it to your advantage and think out of the box.
Find a Special Piece of Jewelry
It’s a given that any proposal will involve a piece of jewelry. If your partner is picky, you might opt to propose with a temporary ring before visiting the jeweler together to allow them to choose a piece for themselves. Alternatively, while it’s nice to invest in a piece of jewelry to mark the event, it needn’t be a ring. You could choose a special locket or a bracelet with some unique stones incorporated into the design. If you are going to go the traditional route though, you might opt to choose a creative design. Thing stack rings or a twisted engagement ring for something a little different.
Take a Trip
If your significant other loves to travel, why not take a trip to an exotic destination such as Hawaii and pop the question somewhere special? It could be somewhere you’ve both always wanted to go, or it could be a place you’ve already visited and has a significant role in the development of your relationship. A change of scenery can work wonders and it will certainly help make the proposal unique.
Food is often the way to a person’s heart, and if this is true for your other half, be sure to have fun with it. You could book a table at your favourite restaurant or rent the place out completely. Perhaps you could arrange to go back to the place where you had your first date. Alternatively, you could pack a romantic picnic full of all their favorite foods and a bottle of champagne, then head to a quiet location to pop the question. You could even use the food within the proposal. For example, have some special engagement cupcakes made with ‘Will You Marry Me?’ written on top.
Organize a Personalized Scavenger Hunt
The great thing about scavenger hunt proposals is that they incorporate an element of fun that takes us back to childhood. You can also customize them based on your own relationship. If you are tech savvy, you could use video clues too. Just remember to be waiting at the final location to pop that all important question.
Taking that next step in your relationship by proposing marriage is daunting. No matter how certain you are about that other person, there is no doubt that it will be a nerve-wracking process. Naturally, you’ll want to ensure that everything is perfect and unforgettable. Remember this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for you, so have fun. As scary as the prospect of taking this step may seem now, you’ll both look back on this day in years to come with fondness.
