If you have met that special person and are planning to propose, why not be creative with it. This is not to say you have to spend a lot of money. You can find plenty of simple, affordable ways to propose, that would still be special and heartwarming to the bride to be. Below are a few ideas to get you started. Of course you will also want to have someone nearby to get the special moment on camera.
Social Media proposal
Since so many are into social media nowadays it only seems right to add this as a way to propose. You can post a special message on your Facebook page and then have the bride to be read the message. It would be great because all your family and friends would be involved since they are on your social media page. You can use Facebook, Pinterest, or any other social media page. You can even start by posting a simple poem while they are on the site and lead up to the proposal.
Make a day out of it
You could try to make the proposal even more special by making an entire day out of it. Start by going out to breakfast, and perhaps another place the individual has wanted to go. You can end the day with a walk through the park. In the park you can have a romantic scene all set up, perhaps pre-arranged by friends. Or you can have this type of set up in your friends or family members back yard. Your family could have already set up some romantic lights, and a few flowers all ready for the proposal. Be creative with the scene. You can have the family hiding inside, taking pictures from a distance.
At someone’s party
If you have a good friend or family member who is planning g a party for another reason such as an anniversary, ask them to share their day. Most couples who are celebrating their anniversary would love to have you propose on their anniversary, especially if you are good friends. You can arrange it as a surprise in the middle of all the festivities. Perhaps by playing the couples favorite song, and then having the groom get up and propose
The Hallmark way
Did you know that a proposal could be as simple as giving a card. You can print out your own card that simply says “Will You Marry Me”. Place the card in the envelope and hand it to them at the right moment. To make it a true surprise you will have to do this at a time when they least expect it.
A sign in a garden
It can also be as simple as a sign in a garden. If there is a special garden that you like to walk through in the area, and the bride to be loves flowers, this is the perfect idea. You can have a personalized sign made up and ask the owners of the garden if you can plant the sign in the middle of the garden. Just make sure that you put her name on the sign so it is clear who the proposal is for. Remember their may be other people in the park as well.
