Proposal Idea

Surprise Proposals She’ll Never See Coming

You didn’t fall in love with her because of an elaborate setting, painstakingly-planned circumstances and picture-perfect lighting; you fell in love because being a part of each other’s lives made the ordinary brighter. You love all the little things — the way she wears your sweatshirts around the house, the shows you watch together over your favorite pizza, how you look forward to seeing her after a long day at work. To capture the essence of this everyday intimacy that made you want to spend your lives together, consider popping the question during an ordinary adventure — after all, it is those ordinary adventures that made you realize you can’t live without her. As the quote says: “marry someone you have fun with in the grocery store.” Show her that it’s those sweet, unplanned moments that made you want to marry her: the inside jokes you make while cooking dinner together, the way you find her irresistible while you’re walking the dog through your neighborhood on Saturday morning, the silly radio sing-alongs on road trips. When thinking of a creative way to capture these moments in your proposal, find something normal that has significance: maybe it’s a hidden ring at dinner on your week day casual date-night where the other regulars can cheer you on for making the move to make her yours. Maybe you’ll pull a quick slight-of-hand while on a walk in your favorite park and pull out the ring of her dreams during her favorite part of the day. Embed your forever-memorable question in a place you already know and love to show her how she made those sweet, everyday moments perfect just by being yours.
