You’ve found “the one”, and you want to spend the rest of your life with them. You took the first step to “forever” by buying a beautiful engagement ring; now you need to propose. A marriage proposal can be nerve-wracking. Luckily, there are many ways you can ask the big question, but going the romantic route worked for many couples. We understand that the definition of what is romantic is different for everybody. So we compiled a list of romantic proposal ideas that can work for you no matter your definition of romantic.
Plan An Outdoor Picnic
The sun is shining, and there are no clouds in the sky. It’s the perfect weather for a picnic and a proposal! Go to your favourite picnic spot in advance and decorate it, making sure it’s ready when you arrive. Have a great time eating and admiring the view, and when the time is right, get on one knee, and ask your lover the big question.
Proposing on a Bushwalk
Australia has a lot of beautiful hiking trails like the Tasmania Overland track, the Alps Walking track, and the Heysen trail, to name a few. If your partner loves the great outdoors, take them on a one day or even a multi-day bushwalk. When your endorphins are high from the hike and the beautiful view, take it even higher by asking them to marry you.
Stroll Down the Beach At Sunset
Take the love of your life on a romantic stroll at your favourite beach. There’s something about the red and orange sun setting on the ocean’s horizon and the sound of the waves that puts people in the mood for romance. When the sun sets, ask them to spend the rest of their life with you.
Stage a Scavenger Hunt
Summer is a fantastic time to create a scavenger hunt for the love of your life. Choose the places that are significant to your relationship to put the clues. You can choose to leave the engagement ring as the last clue they’ll find, and when they do, you can pop the big question. You can even get your friends and family involved in the hunt.
Plan a Romantic Destination Getaway Overseas
Go on that trip you’ve always wanted to take with the love of your life. There are so many romantic places to go. You can go on a romantic gondola ride in Venice, see the Eiffel tower in Paris, see the Lady Liberty in New York, or watch the Northern Lights, to name a few places. There’s nothing like asking her to marry you in the middle of a romantic trip.
Organise a Flash Mob
Who doesn’t love to watch a flash mob? Organise a flash mob to the tune of Bruno Mars Marry You (or any other song you like) and take your lover under the pretence of watching a flash mob. They’ll get the surprise of their life when they find out the flash mob is all for them. Surprise them even more by getting down on your knees and asking the most important question of your life.
Fill a Favourite Room In Your Home with Photo Memories
Decorate the house you share with romantic photos, their favourite flowers and play the music they love. You can dim the lights and add candles to add the mood. Lead them to a special place in the house, and ask them the important question.
Surrounded By Family
When you marry someone, it’s not just the two of you getting married. Your families become one as well. You can choose a special day like Christmas, New Year, or their birthday to make it even more special. Share that special moment with all your loved ones by asking your lover to marry you in front of them.
With Champagne and Flowers
Champagne and flowers are one of the classic romantic proposal ideas. When you clink your champagne flutes, ask your lover to be a permanent part of your life. Surprise your partner with a big bouquet of their favourite flowers and a bottle of Dom Perignon in your special place to celebrate your love.
At Your Future Wedding Venue
Every person has a special place in mind for their magical wedding day. Take them on a romantic trip to their dream wedding venue, and make her fantasy a reality by asking them to be your life partner.
These are just a few simple romantic proposal ideas to get you started. Remember, there’s no single way to propose to the love of your life. The vital thing to remember in proposing is choosing the language of romance that you both speak, and everything will flow from there.
