According to many astronomers, 2013 is going to be the year of love and with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, there couldn’t be a better time to propose to your partner.
Once you’ve decided on a date, you then need to choose the location and plan how you’re going to make your important gesture. Are you thinking sweet and simple or exciting and extravagant? Confused? Here are a few great proposals to ensure your loved one just can’t help but say “I do”.
1. At the Aquarium: Surprise your girlfriend with a trip to the aquarium and ask divers to hold the words “will you marry me” up to the glass. If sea creatures aren’t really your thing you could always get friends and family to wear T-shirts with each letter at the next party or gathering. Ask your future bride to take a photo of your wacky mates and let the words speak for themselves.
2. On Holiday: Take her on a romantic walk down the beach and suggest you both write your names in the sand, when she turns to look at your creation she’ll see your proposal glistening in the sun or moonlight. If skiing is more your style, why not propose on the ski lift? Those on a city break could choose to pop the question on or outside a famous landmark such as the Eiffel Tower or simply get down on one knee on your hotel balcony.
3. At Home: As the saying goes, it’s the simple things in life which are often the best and in this case the most romantic. Write her a love letter or poem proposal and place it inside the book she’s reading or create a trail of candles leading her to a circle of rose petals with the ring inside. For a real memorable proposal, why not create your very own wall sticker with our design a quote tool? Choose from a wide range of fonts and colours and make your decal say as much or as little as you like.
4. On a Special Occasion: Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day are all popular times to propose, but for something a little bit more unique you could always pop the question on her birthday or put a ring inside a chocolate egg at Easter.
However you choose to propose, just make sure it’s meaningful and memorable, after all this is a story she’ll be telling family, friends, neighbours and work colleagues for the rest of her life.
