Sweet and Basic Proposal
This type of proposal is at the top for individuals who don’t want to make a scene. Get a candlelit dinner, your partner’s favorite romantic music in the background, and an overall cozy atmosphere. It involves genuine eye contact and mastery of words. You could propose with a poem or vow, whatever works best. This will afford you time to get all mushy and loved up alone. The sweet and basic proposal is very romantic and a top choice for couples who value an intimate private time with one another. If you have a shy partner, you should certainly go with this and not the elaborate public proposals with trumpets. One other way this type works wonders is in cases of doubt. Sometimes, cases of doubt occur in relationships, and a proposal that gives you the chance to express your feelings and emotions in your own words is the best choice to set things right back on track.
The Classic with a Twist Proposal
We all know the classic proposal; having lunch and then seeing the ring on their bread, and you go on one knee. Yeah, yeah, that’s cute, but it’s also cliché. Now, this particular proposal has a twist to that. Imagine taking a stroll in the park and you “accidentally” trip into your knee; as they try to hold you up, you hit them with the big question. Now that is cute. The twist proposal idea is best for couples with a knack for adventure. It allows you to go crazy, get creative and burn the memory of that proposal into the mind of your partner. Want to leave your partner stunned and wowed? Then certainly go for this one. You could include a few friends or go with total strangers.
The Photoshoot Proposal
Do you have any pictures with your boo/bae? If no, then this is the perfect opportunity to get some. If yes, then we all know you can never have too many couple pictures. So, you convince the lover that you HAVE to get a photoshoot, and just as they agree, you go ahead to connect with a photographer you arrange for. While your partner is instructed by the photographer to pose with her face away from you, you go on your knees with the ring out, and the photographer slowly asks her to turn around. Voila! Creative and breathtaking.
Your family! The one correct folks who have your back any day and anytime. Getting married to a special someone now gives you two families, and although they can be a handful, at least we can use them for something. A fam-bam proposal not only helps spread the message of “Hey! you are my other half, let’s get married” It also warms up your partner to the two families. Couples are much sensitive about how their partner’s families feel about them. A fam-bam proposal will help build the relationship and make your partner feel like a part of the family before the wedding even happens. This next idea involves getting both families to pitch in and help. Tell them what you want to do and leave your lover unaware. Give them cardboard and flowers and probably camerapersons and hide them somewhere (in the bushes perhaps as payback for some of the stuff they do). Explain that when they see you coming with the spouse to be, or at a cue from you, they can all go out and give the surprise. By then, you’ll be holding the ring and popping the question. You should also explain that they don’t have to be too loud and abrupt. So as not to give the spouse to be a heart attack.
Animal Lover Proposal
Do you guys love animals? Your other half especially? Then this might be for you. I’m sure you may not have thought of proposing in a zoo or aquatic reserve, but if your partner is, as explained in this section, they will love it. A tip is to get the people working there in on it; you can ask them to throw in a few animals too to hold the ring box or a flower. A sign with “marry me?” written on it can even be hung on a horse’s neck if that’s your fancy. Both of you can ride into the sunset.
You might be in the army, navy, an air marshal, or any of the forces, and you can’t seem to figure out how to propose to your heartthrob. We’ve got you covered. We appreciate all the forces’ service, but you can still ask them if one more favor. Get your buddies to put on a little demonstration for you, and they could form out the words “marry me.” That would be very thoughtful.
All The Way Proposal
If you’re a firm believer in the saying “go big or go home,” then this is for you. Then you probably thought of proposing on Canada Day. Suppose you haven’t, then you’re not a firm enough believer. Here’s why we mentioned Canada Day, fireworks! Get fireworks that will spell out whatever you want to ask. All you need to do is get the timing right, so you don’t end up looking up throughout the time you’ll spend together.
Big Leap Proposal
You know the classic standing on a table to profess your undying love for the lovely receiver. Well, it works OK with marriage proposals too. This allows you to show off your passion very openly for those of you that want to shout it from the rooftops. You can start from the table.
Two Way Proposal
Assuming you and your partner don’t understand the concept of just one person proposing, this is a beautiful declaration of love. Both parties propose to each other after joint agreement and consensus. You both get to express the love you share!
A proposal done in a way that will suit the personality of the person you’re proposing to is the best method to go with. While you might have some adorable and seemingly fairytale ideas in your head, knowing your partner and what they would prefer is equally essential. A proposal is a critical part of one’s life. You take a completely new step in life at that stage, so it’s vital to do it right. When it comes to a proposal, don’t just think about what’s perfect; think about what’s best for you and yours. Some people like the significant proposals; others will prefer to avoid the crowd chanting “say yes, say yes”. You can also see that going on one knee is not compulsory, especially if it’ll be challenging to get back up.
