For the rest of your lives, the story of how you proposed will be told to friends, family members and even strangers. Because a marriage proposal happens only once in a lifetime, here are the seven best occasions to help you make it perfect!
1. New Year’s Eve
Just before midnight, choose a romantic spot and get down on one knee. Plenty of champagne and sweet words would make the occasion even more romantic. She will love the idea that you want to start the new year as her fiance!
Proposing on Halloween is a creative option most people would not consider. Let friends and family cover their jack-o’-lanterns with the words “will you marry me?” while you’re wearing the costume of her favorite fictional character.
3. Christmas day
Decorate a Christmas tree with lights spelling out the words “Will you marry me?” Christmas is one of the most romantic times of the year, so it’s time to seize the day!
4. Winter days
Many girls love winter, so this is a guaranteed hit. On a rainy day, create a treasure hunt around the neighborhood that ends with you holding the ring -she won’t believe her eyes!
5. Her birthday
Prepare a surprise party and gather all your friends and family. Make it seem like a normal birthday party at first, then get a cake with the words “will you marry me?” written on it. She will forever remember her special day!
6. Your favorite place
Choose a place that reflects a personal significance to you both, like a hotel rooftop or a classic restaurant. Ask someone to take a photo of you together, and when the flash goes off, get down on one knee and ask her the big question!
7. On the beach
Put the ring inside a bottle and bury it in the sand. Afterwards, ask her to help you find something that you lost and direct her to the (marked) spot where you kept your bottle. When she finds it, propose to her!
Marriage proposals shouldn’t be underestimated; it says a lot about how far are you willing to go to be with her!
