Winning Proposals

Proposals are perfect because they aren’t one size fits all affairs. They can (and should) be tailored to the couple and their personalities, stories and even interests. The proposal can be a large and elaborate production or a small private moment. There really is no right or wrong way to do it. Regardless of whether you have a proposal plan in place or need a little help coming up with one that’s uniquely your own, here are 10 ideas that will get you a “Yes!”

Meet Cute

What is more romantic than proposing in the place where it all began? If you met at the local coffee shop, park or maybe even on the job, the first place is the most special. Being back in that sacred spot will bring out all the #feels, so It’s definitely a top-tier proposal site.

Wild Wild Love

Pop the question in your loved one’s favorite outdoor spot! It can be a hiking trail, a quiet clearing in the woods, a scenic spot or wherever else in nature you two are most happy. There, you will have an amazing, all-natural backdrop for one of the happiest days of your life.

Stadium Proposal

Everyone loved Kanye West’s ballpark proposal to Kim Kardashian, so why not come up with your own sports-themed proposal? You can propose at your favorite sports park, stadium or arena and let them know that they’re always going to be the MVP in your life!

The History of Us

This is the perfect proposal for fans of art, history and culture. Surprise your fiancé-to-be with a trip to their favorite museum or cultural site. Then, pick a favorite portrait or exhibit and drop down to one knee. Don’t forget to tell them that out of all the artwork and exhibits, they’re the best part of the museum.

Forever Young

Show your soulmate that they make you feel like a kid again by proposing at your favorite place to have fun together. This could be an amusement park, bowling alley or anything that puts a smile on your faces. Plus, after they say yes to forever, you can spend the rest of your time hanging out, having fun and celebrating!

Lights Up on Love

Is your future fiancé a lover of the theater? Why not take center stage and propose to them after a live show? If you plan ahead, a lot of theaters will let you be up on the stage after the show and that’s the perfect time to ask to put a ring on it.

Sparkle and Shine

A little sparkle can go a long way, and we’re not just talking about the ring! Transform any seemingly ordinary space like a living room, balcony or rooftop with fairy lights to create the perfect ambiance for a lovely proposal. The soft glow of lights is bright enough to fill a space but subtle enough to set the mood, which is perfect for a minimalist fall proposal.

World Wide Wed

Has that special someone always wanted to hike to Machu Picchu or see the Eiffel Tower lit up at night? Take them to their dream travel destination and, while they’re caught up in the sights and sounds, get on one knee. This trip will only be the start of your epic lifetime journey!

Family First

Are you two both family-oriented people? What better way to showcase your love for each other and family than with a proposal that includes them? Pop the question at Sunday dinner or on Christmas while surrounded by all your loved ones. Not only will this day be special for you two, but it will be even greater knowing you were able to share this moment with the people that matter the most.

Home Is Where The Heart Is

Show that lucky gal or guy that a home isn’t just a place with four walls and a roof. They are your home as well. The beauty of an at-home proposal is that it can be as elaborate or as simple as you would like it and, no matter what, it’s uniquely yours. Home is the place you two feel most comfortable and loved and proposing there makes it that much more of a special place to share together.
