You don’t necessarily get a say in your proposal. When and where it happens traditionally hasn’t been up to the bride. So while you patiently wait for your day to come, we have created a list of different proposals to tie you over. Alternately, you could send this to your
future husband boyfriend, and that should get things rolling.
These proposals range from the simple to the spectacular, but they are all unique and achievable with the right budget. Well, except 2 Chainz’s proposal to Kesha Ward at the Met Gala. A girl can only dream, right?
Here are ten unique ways to pop the question.
From The Air
The making of my dream proposal!! 💫💫💫 My official engagement video is finally here! Make sure you click the link in my bio or see my IGTV to see the full video on everything that went into planning this! Thank you to my amazing fiancé who made this all happen! I cannot wait to marry you! ❤️❤️❤️ @johnnydex
The sky is the limit with this proposal. This one is a tad tricky to pull off, and you’ll need access to a deserted island and a light plane. If you have those things lying around then great, this might be the proposal for you. Lucky for Victoria’s Secret supermodel, Devon Windsor, her boyfriend had access to all those things because this was how she got proposed too.
A Picture Says A Thousand Words
They better make room in The Louvre because this proposal deserves to be admired by the millions. Proposal illustrations are a great way to have a tangible item from the day, apart from the big sparkly ring sitting on your ring (duh). There are plenty of talented illustrators on Instagram who will create custom artwork to help you pop the question. The best part about this proposal is that artwork can proudly hang in your home as a daily reminder of your love.
Getting a dog together is an even bigger commitment than marriage, so why not make your furry friend a part of your question? If you’re the type of person who gets tongue-tied, let your four-pawed best man do all the talk and tail wagging for you. You could even pop a camera on their head to capture the moment from a unique angle.
Just Like In The Movies
How can you say no, when your name is across a cinema board? ✨🎦via:@hzphotos #proposalsinwonderland #weddedwonderland _ #engagement #proposal #ido #mrandmrs #brideandgroom #bestfriends #shesaidyes #weddingphotographer #bridetobe #futuremrs #heputaringonit #weddings #bridetobe #bridal #inspo #inspiration #soulmates #bff #bae #photooftheday
Was your love story just like in the movies? Did your relationship blossom from a Netflix n Chill? Then this is the perfect proposal for you. While you grab the popcorn, he gets ready to pop the question. Request a private screening of your favourite movie or find an old-school cinema that will let you hijack their signage for the day. If you have the acting ability and Hollywood budget, why not slip the question into your own film! It will undoubtedly receive an Oscar nomination.
Pizza Marry Me?
🍕💍💯🎉IM ENGAGEDDDDD!!! I’m not one to share non-delicious things on @theplateproject but THERES PIZZA INVOLVED! 😭🍕🔥💕 5 years ago we had our first date here, and Michael brought me back here for a ‘private masterclass’ he won!! Turns out EVERYONE WAS IN ON ITTTT!!! 😂💍🍕👅 swipe for the video – I’m OBSESSSSSEDDDDD with it all and so is @sunriseon7 and @dailymail apparently 😂😇🙌🏼👀 #FAMOUS #NOPHOTOSPLS #ISAIDYES #PIZZAPROPOSAL
When the moon hits your eyes like a big pizza pie, that’s amore. Everyone knows that our first real love was pizza. Whether you opt for authentic wood-fired pizza or a five-dollar Domino’s, although we highly encourage the quality Italian stuff, this will result in a yes because he’s got a PIZZA of your heart.
The Meta Gala
If bae is chummy with Anna Wintour, this should be a piece of cake. Even though this isn’t a viable option for 99.99% of the population, it’s still nice to dream.
Love Is A Highway
Imagine opening the boot of your car to find these flowers and a magical proposal bursting out!?! 💍😍 via: @lafleur_flower #proposalsinwonderland #weddedwonderland _ #engagement #proposal #ido #mrandmrs #brideandgroom #bestfriends #shesaidyes #weddingphotographer #bridetobe #futuremrs #heputaringonit #weddings #bridetobe #bridal #inspo #inspiration #soulmates #bff #bae #photooftheday
If your relationship has been a bumpy road to this point, then use this proposal as a ride to your happily ever after. We are all familiar with the jaw-dropping car proposal that took social media by storm early in the year; this car boot proposal is just a subtler version. There is only so much surprise a girl can take in one day!
The Light of Your Life
Lofoten, Norway… ______________________________________ WE'RE ENGAGED! What a better way to propose than in the heart of the Arctic Circle under the Northern Lights. It's taken a few years to plan but I always had this moment in mind & it seemed fitting as we are both landscape photographers who share a passion for photographing the aurora. Originally I was going to propose in Iceland last year but unfortunately Karlie decided to discard my secretly stashed ring (yes, that actually happened 😂 lol, we were trying to cut weight on a connecting flight from the Faroe Islands). Fortunately though my plan worked & tonight the aurora was firing in one of the most incredible displays of colour we have ever seen. I tricked Karlie into believing we were shooting a selfie & used a torch to light us up for the image. Much to her shock, it wasn't any normal selfie, and much to my shock, she said yes! 😝 This is a single image that was taken during the proposal. And now we may not have any of our own images up hanging on our walls at home…we may however, make an exception for this one. 💍 Dale & Karlie
We can’t imagine a more magical proposal. Let nature set the scene with the beautiful Northern Lights in Norway. What makes this proposal even more special is that the conditions have to be just right to see the lights. If that isn’t a sign that you two were meant to be together, we don’t know what is.
I Will Never Dessert You
Now we need to figure out how to hide a beautiful diamond ring inside ❤️💍 #proposalplanner #melbourne #romance #luxury #luxlove #shesaidyes #uniqueproposal #amazingdesserts #followme #photooftheday #food #dessertproposal #amazing #marriageproposal #proposalplanners #shesaidyes #engaged #marriageproposal
If your sweetie has a sweet tooth, then surprise her with this dessert proposal. It’s the perfect ways to end a romantic candlelit dinner. Just make sure your dessert of choice won’t get the ring too sticky. We think this chocolate flower is a much safer option than the spectacular but messy chocolate bombs. There is also less chance of your loved one accidentally swallowing because nothing kills the passion like a trip to the ER.
Perfection!! 😍 We are so in love with this amazing proposal! Congratulations Jessica + Brandon!!! ❤️❤️❤️ Welcome to our #WRSohana😘 #takentuesday #hedidgood ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ #Repost @yalamakeyaholla ・・・ 7/8/18: Another photoshoot planned with @LisaRosePhotoHi but this time formal wear & no drowning 😂 I show up to the most beautiful beach set up, but thought nothing of it (little did I know this was 3 months of planning.) After an outfit change, a gorgeous sunset and a personalized bottle of my favorite wine, my best friend asked me to marry him. And I️ said yes. I love you, B! And I consider myself the luckiest woman alive to have the honor of sharing forever with you 💙💍👰🏽🤵🏾 #weddingringshop #hawaii #luckywelivehawaii #proposal #weddingring #diamond #diamondring #inspo #engaged #love
Finally, a drink that will make you giddy for all the right reasons. This clever boyfriend personalised his girlfriend’s favourite bottle of wine to help him ask the big question. The bottle had a special scratch panel to reveal the question ‘will you marry me?’. Best of all, the pair had the perfect drop on hand to toast the engagement.
