3 Most Romantic Ways to Propose
Here at Suffolk Marquees, we come face-to-face with many bride and bridegrooms throughout the year. One thing we always enjoy is hearing the story of how the special couple got engaged. We’ve heard many a tale – some extravagant and lavish, some incredibly intimate and beautiful, so we thought we’d inspire you with our favourite ways to propose.
Propose In Public
No pressure, then! If your partner enjoys a bit of a fuss and loves being the centre of attention, how about a trip to the theatre finished with a proposal after the cast’s curtain call? Book tickets for your partner’s favourite band and arrange in advance for the band to make an announcement. Got some budget to play with? A weekend break to somewhere like New York finished with a proposal atop the liberty statue would be one to remember! And why not have someone record the proposal? You can set up a video camera or a phone on a tripod to record the big moment.
Public proposals don’t have to involve all singing, all dancing flash mobs. You can make a public marriage proposal personal and intimate. Why not pop the question on top of a viewing point? If you’re heading to a circus, make sure you grab some seats on the ferris wheel – you could ask the operator to stop it at the top and use that opportunity to propose. Love a spot of stargazing? Grab some blankets, pillows and a picnic and make yourselves comfy somewhere secluded. What could be more romantic than popping the question under the stars?
Propse At Home
It may sound cheesy, but a house filled with roses and rose petals is definitely romantic and impressive. Be waiting for your loved one with a glass of champagne and some strawberries. Romantic meal at home? Write ‘Will you marry me’ on top of dessert. Best. Dessert. Ever.
Love spending warm summer evenings in the garden together? Why not spell out the big question with fairy lights? Or if you’re lovers of board games, you could end a game of scrabble with some strategically placed letters to spell out the big question.
Propose On Holiday
Heading somewhere warm? A sunset walk followed by a romantic candle-lit dinner on the beach is a winner, for sure. Prefer somewhere colder? Why not pop the big question on the piste? If you’re feeling creative, you could write the big question in the snow before getting on the ski lift so your partner reads it on the way up the mountain. If you are enjoying New Year’s Eve abroad, waiting for the countdown – a universal time of celebration – and then proposing is sure to go down a treat. Hiking up a mountain? Getting down on one knee at the very top is a memorable way to ask your partner to be yours.
