A marriage proposal is the first step to spending your life with your best friend, life partner, or the first person you wish to see the first thing upon waking up. Typical proposals include the ring and the infamous “down on one knee.” They end in a sounding “yes” from their partners along with tearful eyes.
Though it’s not a requirement to go all out on the marriage proposal, it best to prepare for it since it’s a one-time thing. Some people come up with unique ideas to make their partners swoon. They reserve the best seats in a fancy restaurant or set-up an elaborate enclosure in a park or public place.
Unfortunately, not everyone dares to pluck up the courage and ask their loved one or s.o. in front of strangers. They prefer an intimate setting, a casual ambiance, and a tranquil scene. An introvert or someone who isn’t a fan of large crowds would relate to this.
There are various ways to bring spice to your engagement. You can use these the three themes and grab some inspiration for your marriage proposal. A home wedding proposal can be indoors, outdoors or involve innocent activities like games.
1. Board and Card Games
A trivia game like ‘20 Questions‘ and other board games can start innocently and hit off after a few rounds. Pop out the question on your last turn. If it’s a card game, pass the card to the person and get down on one knee.
2. Scavenger Hunt
Another exciting way to propose is a scavenger hunt. Hand out clues covering nearby locations. You can add details or make it complicated as the game progresses. The final destination must lead to a place where you can hide or conceal the ring. An intimate dinner setup or elaborate romantic backdrop is also a great location to wrap the hunt.
1. Holiday Surprise
Nothing beats the classic approach. Time your engagement along with the holiday celebration. Hang the ring box in an ornament on the tree. A frequented spot like the coffee table by the fireplace or unseen mistletoe is a tricky move as well as an ideal place to put the ring. If you choose the tree, wait until it’s cleared. Ask them to look for it or pluck it out then propose.
Everyone loves to receive gifts. Build the excitement and allow your partner to wonder what’s inside by wrapping it in different size of boxes. Learn from the Matryoshka Dolls or Russian dolls and pull out a large gift wrapping to camouflage what’s inside. Get down on one knee once the last box is opened.
If you want an unforgettable, sexy and steamy proposal, use your hands and offer a massage. Leave out the left hand for you to slip the ring and ask the question after.
4. Sweet Nothings
Write down the notes to your sweetheart and place them around your lavish home in Vermosa. Insert a fact or something you appreciate about them on each letter. Don’t forget to leave instructions on how to find the next one. On the last one, include something cheesy like, “I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Will you marry me?” Be there when that happens.
A marriage proposal is a once-in-a-lifetime event between two people. It’s a life-changing moment as each one commits their self and life to the other. Moreover, it leads to the union of two people.
A marriage proposal is just the first step, but there is no reason to shy from making it as unforgettable as possible. It doesn’t matte￼r if it’s cheap or simple. Hearing them say “yes” is the most valuable thing during the engagement.
