Pick A Favorite Location To Propose
If you and your partner have a favorite place that is significant to both you, this location could be the ideal place for your marriage proposal. Once at this place, you can do so many things to make the moment even more memorable. For example, you can have someone take a picture of you and your partner but instead of posing, drop down on both knees and pop the question.
Have A Choir, Brass Band Or Drum Line Show Up For A Surprise Performance
This is really a cute way of proposing to your girlfriend. You can have the band sing her favorite love song to her in a public location or park before you pop the question. You can even work with the performers to incorporate the name of your fiancé into the songs lyrics for a very personal touch. This will make your proposal so cute.
If your girlfriend is adventurous, then a treasure hunt can be a cute way of proposing marriage to her. Start the hunt by leaving her a clue at home. The clue should send her on a journey to your favorite spots all over town and end with your marriage proposal.
Surprise Pet Gift
If you and your girlfriend are both pet lovers, then this idea of proposing with a pet would work. If you have both discussed getting a pet in the past such as a kitten, puppy and so on, you can buy the pet and tie the ring around its neck. You can then present the pet to your girlfriend as a gift. If it’s Christmas season, you can leave the pet under the Christmas tree for her to find which will make it really cute.
Propose On A Plane
You can plan a romantic destination getaway for two and then propose while on the plane using the plane’s loudspeaker. To do this, you have to first inform the flight attendants of your plan. Proposing to your girlfriend at 35,000 feet is cute don’t you think?
Go On A Hike
This is another outdoor proposal idea. If you and your girlfriend love hiking, you can take her for a hike and propose once you’ve reached the top of your climb. Be really careful so you don’t lose the ring while climbing as that could totally ruin your plans.
Propose At The Beach
It is fairly common for people to propose at the beach so this is surely a great idea. Add a touch of creativity to the proposal by engaging in an activity and then proposing to her afterwards. For example, you can build sandcastles together and when she’s distracted for a second, quickly place the ring on the highest tower. This will surely lead to a jaw-dropping moment for your girlfriend as she will be more than surprised to see the ring.
Slip The Ring On Her Finger While She Sleeps
How about your girlfriend waking up to find a ring on her finger? She sure would be elated. While your girlfriend is sleeping, simply slip the ring on her finger and then wake her up with champagne and strawberries.
Propose At An Aquarium
This involves planning with the authorities at the aquarium you intend to use. Once approval is granted, ask the divers at the aquarium to put on a proposal show inside their biggest fish tank. Have them hold up a waterproof sign that says, “Will you marry me?” against the glass. After this is done, position you and your partner for what will, at first, seem like feeding time.
Hotel Room Surprise
Plan a trip with your girlfriend and then take her out for a long day of sightseeing. While out, have people go into your hotel room and leave roses, candles and champagne there. This sets up for a perfect surprise proposal.
Propose With A Rigged Game
Play a game with your girlfriend that ends with the words “Marry me? ”. It could be a game of scrabble or a game of cards. Also, you can have a custom made jigsaw puzzle with your picture and the words “Marry me?”. Have your girlfriend solve the puzzle and once she’s done, she will have a picture of you and your proposal staring at her.
Halloween Jack-o-lantern Carving Contest
You can also propose by throwing a Halloween jack-o’-lantern carving contest for friends and family. During the contest, everyone reveals their designs while you unveil your pumpkin carved with your proposal last.
Propose On The Dance Floor
Go out with your girlfriend for a night of fun and dancing. After dancing for some time ask the DJ or bandleader to pass you the mic so you can dedicate a song and then go ahead to propose on the dance floor.
Hire A Skywriter
A cute way of proposing to your girlfriend is to have a skywriter spell out your proposal for everyone around to see. Your girlfriend will surely be impressed.
Propose With Your Family and Friends as Models
Arrange a party for your family and friends where everyone puts on a T-shirt or carry balloons filled with helium (otherwise they won’t float) bearing one of the letters in the phrase, “Will you marry me?” During the party, ask everyone to gather for a group picture to reveal the message.
Plan with your girlfriend to visit a particular restaurant on a fixed date. Before the day arrives, visit the restaurant and let them in on the plan. On the appointed date, when you and your girlfriend are seated, ask for the “specials” menu. The waiter will return with a sheet of paper you planted earlier containing your marriage proposal message.
How Long Before You Propose
There is no right time to propose to your girlfriend. It all depends on how well you connect with your girlfriend and whether you see a future with her. If you’ve connected with her on a deeper, that could be the right time to propose. Also, if you see a future with her, you can go ahead and propose. Imagine your life in the next 10 years; do you see her in it? If yes, then it is time to take things to the next phase.
Things To Consider Before Proposing
A good number of cute ways to propose to your girlfriend has been explained earlier. It is best to point out that there are some things you have to put into consideration before you propose to her. Some of the things to put into consideration include:
Does She Feel Same Way
Before you propose to a girl, you have to consider how she feels about you. Does she feel the same way you do? How you guys talked about the future together? Is she ready to have your kids when you guys are ready for that? All these are things you have to consider before you go ahead to propose to her. Ensure that you are not making assumptions from her. Bring up discussions about the future with her and hear what she has to say. If she is makes statements like ‘I don’t really believe in marriage as a union’, and then it will be risky proposing to her.
Your Future Plans
As mentioned earlier, you have to consider your future plans and goals before you propose to a girl. Does your girlfriend fall into the plans you have for yourself in the nearest and distance future? Does she have most of the character traits you want in spouse? If she fits into all these, then you have to consider proposing to her.
Your Financial State
Most people ignore this factor and it comes back to haunt them later when they get married. What is your financial state like? What are your assets and liabilities? What are your girlfriend’s assets and liabilities? Are both of you ready to handle the extra financial pressure that comes with stating a family? What are your plans to increase or diversify your income in the distance future? If you are not financially stable for now, I will encourage you to forget able proposing to your girlfriend now. Rather you should focus on building yourself financially.
