Finding unique and romantic proposal ideas can be difficult for some, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. Whether you want to make a scene in front of the public or keep it simple with just the two of you, there is something for every couple out there.
If you are coming up with your own romantic proposal idea, keep in mind some of the following tips:
- List out activities you enjoy doing together and restaurants you frequent.
- Note some of the things your S/O enjoys doing (even if you don’t particularly like it).
- Pay attention to what your sweety likes – do they like being the center of attention or do they like things low-key?
- Find some romantic places to propose in Springfield, MO. and make a list of the ones you know your S/O would like.
- List out some of your favorite memories together and/or make a photo scrapbook of them.
This will help get those creative juices flowing – but if you are still having issues thinking of the perfect proposal, read below to get some more romantic proposal ideas.
10 Romantic Proposal Ideas
Take a holiday, just the two of you. While you spend a day sight-seeing, eating at the best restaurants in town, or shopping with your S/O., have the hotel plant a bottle of chilled champagne on the bed and spread rose petals around. When you both get back to the room, get on one knee and pop the question!
Purchase an ad slide at your favorite movie theater and be sure to add “Will you marry me (insert your S/O’s name?” When you sit down with some popcorn and drinks, watch their reaction and be ready with a ring in hand.
On your partner’s birthday, plan a “surprise party,” where they get there “too early.” You can get a little playful and accuse them of spoiling the surprise before your romantic proposal. Have your friends and family come to celebrate your engagement after!
Include your family in a marriage proposal idea. Have your kiddo write on a sign, “(Insert S/O’s name here), will you marry my mommy/daddy?” Take a photo of them and frame it, get dressed up for a nice family outing and tell them your kiddo made them something special. Be sure to catch their reaction when they see what you and your child made for them!
Gather friends and family for a BBQ or dinner party – be sure to bring balloons with letters on them which read “Will you marry me?” Be sure to hide them from your sweety until someone suggests a group photo – each person gets a balloon revealing the letters. When the photo is taken, reveal the question to your date with the ring in hand!
Fill your bedroom with photos of you both hanging from balloons. When your poopsy goes into the bedroom fill with memories, be sure to be behind them on your knee ready to propose!
Have friends or family members take photos of you holding up signs which say, “Will you marry me?” Put the photos side-by-side and frame them before wrapping them up. As your significant other unwraps your gift, be ready for the answer with a ring in hand!
Plan a picnic with your soon-to-be-fiance. Put together a basket full of fruit, cheeses, cured meats, chocolates and wine with the ring hiding amongst them in the box. After your meal and a glass of wine or two, present the ring and wait for the answer!
With the help of some of your S/O colleagues, plan a last-minute meeting at the end of the day and decorate the meeting room. When they walk into the meeting room drop on one knee and pop the question. You could also whisk them away to a romantic spot for just the two of you where you can ask privately.
Hire a photographer such as Gambles Photography to take couple pictures with you for the day (You could spice it up and say you won a free photo shoot). Get dressed up and halfway through the shoot, pop the question. Erin is a pro at catching proposals in the act!
Whether you want to go all out and make a scene in public or keep it just the two of you, there is something for everyone.
Wishing you the best of luck!
