Marriage Proposal Ideas We Can’t Get Enough Of

The story of how you proposed will be one you tell for years to come. And in the world of viral videos and over the top asks, all of that pressure can be a bit daunting. But when it comes to proposing, there really is no one right way to do it. All that matters is that your proposal reflects who you and your partner are as a couple. And that you’re asking your most favorite person to spend the rest of their life with you. The rest is just details.

And while your proposal will be perfect no matter how you do it, just make sure it’s something your partner would like. (If she’s an introvert who loves to stay in, a flash mob in public is probably the wrong move. But hopefully you don’t need us to tell you that.)

Thinking about popping the question? Then grab some tissues, cue the waterworks and checkout some of our favorite proposal ideas below!

Marriage Proposal Ideas We Can’t Get Enough Of

The Writing’s on the Wall

If you thought skywriting was romantic it has nothing on this proposal! Are you handy with a brush and know somebody with a wall that needs repainting? Because there is nothing sweeter than going for a casual walk around the neighborhood and “happening” upon this message.

Pro Tip: Just make sure your graffiti is legal before you bust out the spray paint.

Homemade, With Love

If you both prefer to stay snuggled up at home, keep it that way! The best part about simple at home proposals is that they’re usually so spontaneous she’ll never see it coming. Slip the ring on while she’s sleeping, propose over breakfast, or pause that rom-com just because you can’t wait a second longer.

Literary Magic

Proposing with her favorite book is so romantic. Use it as a makeshift ring box and cut out the pages so you can hide the ring inside.
