You only get to propose once, so it should be a special and memorable occasion for all involved. The tradition is to get down on one knee somewhere special, perhaps your favourite restaurant or the place you first met, present a beautiful ring from somewhere like Gema & CO and utter those four words: “will you marry me?”. However, quirky couples might better be suited to some of these unique ideas:
On Christmas Day
Christmas day is a wonderful time to propose, and there are numerous ways you can do it. You could get multiple sizes of box, each wrapped in their own wrapping paper. Make sure the ring box is the smallest box, so that your other half has to keep opening to get to it. Be ready to pop the question when they get to the little box!
You could even dress up the ring as if it’s a tree decoration, and then get it ready when all of the presents have been opened. They’ll be shocked that the ring has been there the whole time and they didn’t notice!
While Playing a Questions and Answers Game
If you and your other half like playing games, this could be the perfect idea for you. Play a trivia game with them, and when they least expect it tell them their question is: will you marry me? They’ll probably do a double take and ask you to say it again, but it’ll be a lovely surprise!
Spell it Out
Why not spell out your marriage proposal in the last place your other half would expect to find one? You could do it in fridge magnets, write it on the bathroom mirror, or even in their alphabet soup if you can plan ahead. Use your imagination! Make sure you go and find engagement rings in Houston before the proposal so you have something to propose with. It’s the most important part!
Pay a Busker
If you know a busker that regularly appears in your area, you could pay them to sing a ‘will you marry me?’ kind of song as you go by. All you need to do is stop and ask if they can hear what he’s singing. You can then get your ring out and do the rest!
Ask a Tube Carriage to Sing ‘Your Song’
This will take some work, but nobody said it would be easy. If your other half regularly gets the tube, you need to get there first and ask all of the passengers if they’ll be so kind as to help you propose. Ask them to start singing your song nonchalantly when she gets on the tube, so she wonders what’s going on. Then you can appear and ask her to marry you!
Write a Newspaper Advert
Pay for a newspaper advert in your favorite newspaper. All you need to do then is make sure your other half reads it when you want them to. You could go on a picnic or simply have it open during breakfast.
Here are some more ideas for you to consider. Put lots of effort in and your other half is bound to say yes!
