Ah, marriage proposals. That time-honoured tradition of getting down on one knee, pulling out a ring, and nervously hoping that the love of your life doesn’t laugh in your face.
We’ve gone the extra mile as a collective society when it comes to being quirky with marriage proposals. Creative minds around the world have come up with some truly unique and entertaining ways to pop the question. From flash mobs to scavenger hunts, personalised puzzles to movie theatre trailers, these creative marriage proposals are sure to make your partner say “yes” (and maybe even shed a tear or two).
So if you’re planning the perfect proposal, you might be awed by the number of ideas floating around on the Internet. It can be complicated – even daunting – especially since it’s such an important moment in your life. All in all, the key to getting the right proposal is to understand what the person you’re proposing to loves in life.
If you’re keen to steer away from the usual cut-and-paste proposal formats, take a look at 3 of our favourite creative proposal ideas!
Propose While Hiking
Hear us out…. It might not be the most glamorous, but if you and your partner love the outdoors or are adventurous at heart, this is perfect for you!
Nevermind the sweaty mess that you and your partner will be in, because the breathtaking scenery is what makes this moment special. Nature is there to add a romantic touch, and for you to convey a love story that will be captured in photos for years to come. The fun physical activities before and after the proposal will serve as a way to distract yourself from nerves as well!
You don’t have to limit yourself to hiking – pop the question during a boat ride, a rock climbing session or even during a woodland picnic or glamping session. Imagine proposing during a gorgeous sunrise, with a breathtaking view all around you as the backdrop of one of your biggest moments in life. It’s what dreams are made of!
Theme Park Proposal
For the fun-loving, but less adventurous couples, this is for you. A fun-filled day at an amusement park, ending with one of the biggest moments of your life. Additionally, it’ll be a fun way to celebrate future anniversaries together!
You could pop the question just before the big drop on the roller coaster ride, and make it an exhilarating memory for both you and your partner. If you prefer things slow, you could do it while going on the merry-go-round. If you’re neither of these and prefer the scenic route, source out a spot with a fantastic background, such as with the massive castle or fountain, or even at night during a fireworks show.
Our tip is to check out the theme park during weekdays, when there’s less people around. That way, you’ll be able to source out the perfect spots and moments that you can carry out your dream marriage proposal.
An Aquarium Proposal
Who said you couldn’t propose under-water?
Plan a one-of-a-kind proposal with an aquarium date! Aquariums are stunning, and have beautiful and exotic marine life such as tropical fish, majestic sharks and stingrays. The vibrant colours of marine life paired with the serene atmosphere of the underwater world make for the perfect backdrop to your dream proposal.
Some aquariums have special proposal packages, where you can engage with a diver to swim in front of you in the tank while holding a sign that says ‘Will You Marry Me?’. Or take it a step further and do it while you and your partner are diving in an aquarium! That’s surely a wedding proposal to remember.
