For newly engaged couples, one of the most asked questions is ‘how did they pop the question?’. With everyone wanting to hear how your proposal played out, there can be a lot of pressure to do something unique and unforgettable.
The possibilities for your proposal are endless, but this can leave you feeling stumped. But fear not, Wedding Suppliers is here to help! In this blog post, we share some of the best proposal ideas to help you plan your own special moment.
Make it personal
It might seem like stating the obvious, but all the best proposal ideas have one thing in common: they’re personal.
If you’re asking the man or woman of your dreams to marry you, you should know them pretty well, and this should be reflected in your proposal.
You should have a good idea of what they would like in a proposal—and what they most certainly wouldn’t—and make plans to go above and beyond this.
Some of the best personal touches for a proposal include:
- Location: Whether you return to the place you had your first date, take a walk on your favorite beach or make the proposal part of a holiday, popping the question in a place that’s special to you is a thoughtful touch.
- Activities: Whether you’re ski fanatics and choose to propose on the slopes or during a special occasion or event, like a hot air balloon ride or concert, activities make proposals unique even more memorable.
Make it picturesque
Many proposals are followed by a candid photoshoot of the elated, loved-up couple embracing and showing off the ring. While this can happen anywhere, pictures that capture the event in a picturesque location have an extra wow factor.
Whether you take to a national park or coastal haven and show off the ring in the beauty of nature or go to a place where you can capture the moment with a myriad of twinkling lights from the city in the background, the post-proposal picture opportunities need to be considered.
A family affair
A proposal is a personal moment between lovers, but those which include family allow others to be part of the joy.
From holding the proposal at a family gathering that allows everyone you hold close to witness and celebrate the event, having the children in on the plan or enlisting your best furry friend as the ring-bearer, making the proposal a family affair can take even the most traditional down-on-one-knee proposal from generic to one-of-a-kind.
Go with your gut
If you’re planning to pop the question and are looking for the best proposal ideas, hopefully this post offers some advice and inspiration. But remember, you know your partner better than anyone so when it comes to asking the all-important question and how best to do it, remember to listen to your gut instinct!
Remember, every couple is different and what is considered the best proposal for one could be among the worst for another! As such, if a proposal idea doesn’t feel right for you, don’t do it!
At the crux of it all, a proposal is about showing your love and devotion to your partner and making clear your intention to marry. No matter how you choose to do it, it’ll be a unique experience that you’ll remember and cherish forever.
