You have decided that your partner is the one you want to marry. You can see it all now – the wedding, the guests, the speeches, the honeymoon; above all, you can see the wonderful future laid out before you. It sounds perfect, but first you have to pop the question. You could get down on one knee, hide the ring in the dessert in an upmarket restaurant, or you could propose in a way that is unique to you. Have a look at these ideas for planning a proposal that your intended will never see coming.
It is written in the future
You and your partner might not be the types for big dates and flashy gestures. Sometimes it is the little things that make the big things beautiful, so how about having a fortune cookie made with the question written on the small paper slip inside? You can transform your blissful Friday night movie and snuggling on the sofa into a sweet evening to remember.
It’s written in the stars
You could write “I love you” on the floor with Ready Mix Screed Derby products which will last forever and be a true way of showing your loved one how much they mean to you.
Star in your own romcom
If you have looked at many diamond engagement rings and are ready to propose but can’t think of the right location, why not create your own? Make a movie trailer that features your proposal. Most computers or laptops come with editing software built in, so get your friends and family to help you to recreate some famous movie scenes. If you have never done anything like this, don’t worry – there is plenty of information available to help you plan it out.
Take it back to the beginning
Do you remember when you first held hands? When you first kissed your partner? That first date set you on the path to where you are now, ready to get married. Go back to that magical first date and recreate it! Visit that same bar, cinema, or bowling alley. Plan the date, find the right ring and recreate every little detail. Did you meet at the bus stop? Did you buy the popcorn? Take a trip down memory lane to where it all began and seal your future together.
These are just three ideas, but you can see that the possibilities are endless. The important thing is to make your proposal personal, quirky, fun, creative and inventive.
