One for the boys perhaps? If you are itching for your man indoors to do the deed and pop the big question but he is lacking in serious motivation…pop this little edit next to his morning coffee and hey presto, bobs your uncle!
I Do Love To Be By the Seaside
Set a date for a romantic day trip to your favourite seaside retreat. Make sure it is a quiet beach away from the madding crowds. As the sun is setting over the horizon, take a walk down the beach and spell out your proposal in the sand. Be sure to take a bottle of the bubbly stuff to celebrate her acceptance!
Flying High on Romance
Take to the air – a romantic hot air balloon flight over the beautiful countryside would be the perfect romantic setting to propose and would make for the most beautiful images of your proposal. Just be sure your partner has a head for heights and that you don’t drop the sparkler over the side!
Alternatively, if your partner is on the adventurous side, how about organising a joint experience day? Taking to the skies in a glider can be an exhilarating experience you can both enjoy. When you touch down on the runway afterwards, why not have a red carpet ready with flowers and a bottle of champagne on ice ready for your big moment?
It’s Written in the Stars
Rent your favourite hotel room or even better, a room with a beautiful view. This could be a romantic retreat in the heart of the countryside or a stunning city centre view in your hometown. String romantic fairy lights around your balcony and light it up in style – large letter lights spelling out ‘MARRY ME’. When the sun goes down and the stars come out, pick your perfect moment to pop the question under the starry night sky. Remember to check the weather report for clear skies. The last thing you want is a rainy night to spoil your romantic proposal!
Take a Hike
If you and yours love to get out into the open and take in the country air, what could be better than proposing on one of your favourite countryside hikes. Choose a memorable spot or favourite location, such as a waterfall or hillside monument with a beautiful panorama and ask her to marry you. Remember to pack a picnic with the champagne glasses for when she says yes!
It’s Music to their Ears
Get her favourite radio DJ to ring her up at work and propose for you over the airways, in front of all her colleagues. When she says yes, be outside her office door with flowers, champagne and of course, the ring to seal the deal! Whisk her off for a romantic meal for two at your favourite restaurant to celebrate your engagement.
Moments To Treasure
Create a beautiful memory scrapbook of your time together. Pictures, special moments shared, favourite things you like to do together as a couple. On the last page, leave it blank except for the one line ….’For the moments we are yet to share…Will you?’ When she looks up inquisitively, drop down on one knee with the engagement ring box at the ready. Not only will she have a lovely proposal but a beautiful keepsake of your time together.
Love By Candlelight
If your partner is the shy and retiring type, she may not thank you for a flamboyant and public display of your love for her. Sometimes keeping it simple can be just as effective. Choose your night and create the most perfect romantic ambience with soft candlelight, a room filled with flowers, your favourite CD on the stereo and a delicious homecooked meal. A classic but still a winner.
Back to Nature
Rent a secluded log cabin in the woods. Even better if you book in the autumn time, the wood will be alive with colour from the beautiful autumnal leaves and will create the most romantic backdrop for your proposal. Look to hire a cosy log cabin with traditional log burner and an outdoor jacuzzi. Get the champers on ice, take a dip in the jacuzzi and pop the question underneath the stars. When she says yes, you can retire to the cabin and get yourself warm again with cosy blankets, toasted marshmallows and hot chocolate by the fire.
