Okay, so you have finally met the woman of your dreams. Do you think you are ready to take a giant leap and ask her to marry you? Well, if you feel that she is the one you have always been dreaming of, then perhaps living a lifetime with her can’t be far from your usual thoughts. Just thinking about being with her for the rest of your life may be enough to give you plenty of reasons to smile each day.
Now that marriage is on your mind, do you have any idea how to propose to her and pop the question? Naturally, you would want that special moment to be memorable for the two of you. After all, it’s not everyday that you ask a girl to marry you. So, if you are out of brilliant ideas on how to propose to that special woman in your life, then these fool-proof tips can help you get started.
10. Secret Question
Women love surprises, and what better way to keep her guessing than by using some props to hide the ring in something edible. For instance, you may freeze the engagement ring in a colored ice cube, and dip it in a glass of wine or beverage. Of course, the ice cube should be big enough, so she won’t swallow it! The moment she notices the melted ice and the ring coming out of it, hold her hand and spoon the ring out of her glass. Then, voila! Propose to her, and watch her go “awww” as you put the ring on her finger. Another idea is by putting the ring and a small piece of paper that says “Will you marry me?” inside a fortune cookie. For this idea, though, you will need to talk to a baker who can prepare that custom-made fortune cookie for your sweetheart. You may give her the cookie during your date night, preferably in a nice Chinese restaurant, and let her open the cookie and smile in awe.
9. Hide and Go Seek
One of the most exciting ways to propose to your girl is by playing a fun game of hide and go seek. This is a great idea for couples who love games and surprises, since it will require some effort to actually search various places just to find that “hidden treasure”. Tell her that you have prepared a game of scavenger hunt, and give her a map that would lead her to the treasure you have hidden. The setting of this game is completely up to you, and you can play it at home, in the yard, on the beach, or even in a playground. When she has finally found the ring (make sure you place it inside an old-fashioned mini treasure chest) bend on one knee and pop the question.
8. Puzzling Question
Does she love jigsaw puzzles? Great! Then, she would love this unique and brilliant way of proposing to her. You may either make the puzzle pieces yourself or ask someone to design it for you. At the center of the puzzle, she should be able to form an image of a ring and the text “Marry me?” in it. Let her complete the puzzle until she gets to read the message that was formed. Then, present her the ring and propose.
7. Do It With Lights
Days before your dinner date, contact a company that specializes on fireworks and ask them to prepare a fireworks display at night. This should serve as the highlight of the event, so perfect timing is very important. After your romantic dinner, take her out to an open field and tell her that you want to show her something. When the fireworks display starts, tell her how her presence is much like the fireworks that light up your life. Then, show her the ring, get down on your knees, and propose to her.
6. The Sky’s the Limit
Everyone loves surprises, and your girlfriend will surely fall in love with you even more with this romantic proposal idea. Take her out to the garden for a romantic picnic, and make sure you prepare food and drinks that she love the most. Before this day, you should have hired a skywriter who could spell out “Will you marry me?” in the sky. Your girlfriend will be completely flattered and thrilled to see those words up in the sky for the rest of the world to see.
5. Sunset Proposal
There’s nothing else more romantic than a relaxing stroll along the shore just before sunset. After a leisure walk, lead your girlfriend to a spot where you have set up a lovely candle-lit dinner just for the two of you. Make sure the spot you have chosen is perfect – a quiet spot with a perfect view of the stars. Just in front of the table (and make sure it’s visible from where she is seated), use a stick to write the words I love you. Marry me” on the sand.
4. Sing for Her
If you can write a song and play a guitar, then you can propose to her by writing a special love song for her. Serenade her at night while singing the song to her, and you may even ask some of your friends to play backup instruments to enhance the melody of your song. After singing to her, hand her a single stemmed red rose, bend on one knee, present her the ring, and pop the question. Now that’s one romantic proposal done the old-fashioned way.
3. Book A Proposal
If your sweetie loves to read, then you may surprise her by sneaking in a “Will you marry me?” note in a book that she is currently reading. You may use a bookmark, so she can find the page easily. Tell her that you would want her to read a story to you, and make her choose that book where you placed a marker. When she opens it, have the ring ready, and ask her to marry you!
2. Say It With Sweets
Bake her something that she really loves such as a chocolate cake or any type of baked treats. Then, use candies to decorate the top part and spell out “Marry me”. Serve this tasty treat for dessert, and expect her to rush towards you for a long and tight hug. Afterwards, show her the ring and go into your proposal.
1. Propose Online
Tell her to visit a website that you have prepared for her. This website should include all your photos together, and maybe a few blogs that express how much you love her. Make sure you devote a page that has the picture of an engagement ring, and a romantic love note to let her know how you feel about her. When she has read the entire note, take her hand, show her the ring, and ask her to marry you. With such heartfelt message, it’s impossible for her to say no!
These are only a few great ideas on how to propose to your girlfriend. Simply choose from one of these brilliant suggestions, and do your best to make it work as expected. Best of luck to you!
