Unique Ways to Propose

You only propose once, so make it memorable!

We’d love to help you find a unique way to catch your sweetheart off guard and push the element of surprise to a new level.

Spell it Out

A proposal written in the sand

Playing Scrabble or Boggle. You’ll probably have to cheat to get the board to read the way you want it – but once she reads the message “WILL YOU MARRY ME,” we think she’ll forgive you.

Flower Petal Trail

A trail of flower petals

Make a trail of flower petals to greet her when she gets home – for extra effect, strategically placed candles will only enhance that special moment.

Pick Her up at the Airport

Tell her you’ve arranged a car to pick her up on her way home. Dress up like a Town Car driver and hold a sign next to the other drivers that says “WILL YOU MARRY ME?”

Scavenger Hunt Proposal

Think of a few places that are meaningful to your relationship and send your sweetheart (and 2-3 friends or family members) to visit these places. Throw in a salon appointment (hair and nails) and maybe stop at a boutique for a new dress. Along the way, have notes or cards describing what each stop signifies. At the end of the scavenger hunt, you can propose at the last spot with all your friends and family involved in planning the day there to celebrate after!

Pinterest Proposal

This guy pulls out all the stops using his girlfriend’s Pinterest board! He brings to life her dream wedding without her having to lift a finger. She gets proposed to AND married in the same day.

Skywriter Proposal

Skywriting proposal

Hire a skywriter to spell out your proposal for everyone around to see.

T-Shirt Proposal

Gather a bunch of your friends and family for a party. Have everyone in attendance put on a T-shirt bearing one of the letters in the phrase “Will you marry me?” When you walk into the room with your girlfriend, suggest a group picture and let the shirts speak for themselves.

YouTube Proposal

Upload a video of your proposal to YouTube (tell her you have a hysterical home movie to show her). Then present her with the ring at the very end.
