Proposal Ideas She’ll Never See Coming

You’ve found the Forever Captivating ring of her dreams, make sure the moment you ask her to be yours is just as spellbinding. Even if she knows you’re going to be popping the question soon, make the big moment magical and breath-taking with a proposal that reflects who she is and what you love about her.

1. The Destination Proposal: Sweep her off her feet with a romantic weekend out of town, or pop the question on a planned vacation. The actual destination may be a new adventure for the two of you, or it can be a nostalgic return to a place you both hold dear. If it works for your destination, consider writing “WILL YOU MARRY ME” in sand, candles on the beach, carved out in snow, or even in sparklers or flowers.

2. Everyday Romance: You fell in love with her during the day-to-day of normal life, plan a surprise proposal amid a seemingly ordinary day or moment. Create a meet-cute during your daily grind and stage a serendipitous surprise she’ll never forget. >>link to other article after it’s published<<

3. Create a Magical Event: Does she ooh and ahh over the sweetly sentimental or does she adore it when you remember the little things? Create a scavenger hunt, or a trail of notes or special items leading to the ring, or to the message you want her to read before you pop the question. Recruit a photo-savvy friend or hire a professional to take photos of your unforgettable event.

4. A Family Affair: Is family at the center of your life? Include them in this monumental moment! Choose an event or holiday that you both love and look forward to, then propose privately right before the gathering. Prep the guests with champagne to toast your new engagement when you arrive.

5. Involve Her Life Passions: Is she an athlete, an artist, or about to embark on a new educational or career journey? Plan your proposal at a big game, the release of her new work, or after her graduation or another major milestone. Is she an avid reader, or a super-fan? Hide a note in the new release of her favorite novel series, or ask the announcer at her favorite team’s game or a musician at her favorite band’s concert to pop the question.
