When it comes time to propose ladies rest assured that your man is feeling the pressure. You are the love of his life and he wants to do something special to show you just how much he cares about you. Whether you are the quiet and intimate or over-the-top type couple , your boyfriend will plan and plot to make it a moment you will remember for the rest of your lives together. But just in case he needs a little inspiration, here are a few proposal stories that are unique, well thought out and personalized to please the bride-to-be.
A Family Affair
I know for me, there is nothing I love more than to share those special moments in life with the ones I love. That is why when I heard of this family style proposal it jumped to the top of my favorite list.
The unsuspecting bride-to-be joins her boyfriend for a day at the Huntington Library Botanical Gardens is Pasadena. Upon entering the grounds, her boyfriend leaves her to “use the restroom.” Here the plan is set into motion. Soon after his departure the bride is joined by a friend who gives her a piece of paper. This is her first clue in a series of clues that lead her around the grounds of the Huntington Library. The best part… at the end of each clue is a family member to give her the next slip of paper. By the end of the scavenger hunt she has gathered about 25 of her closest family and friends. The very last clue leads them to her boyfriend who drops to his knee and asks her to be his wife.
The Scenic Route
We all know (and secretly wish we could be) that couple who is always active. They love to be outside playing sports, exercising, hiking, you name it. This next proposal is perfect if you happen to be the “out-doorsy” type.
A boyfriend decides to take his girlfriend on a hike to their favorite spot, just the two of them. This spot happens to be on a mountain over looking the beautiful Washington landscape. After an intermediate hike they finally reach the top and the view is absolutely gorgeous. The girlfriend is stunned when her boyfriend kneels to ask if she will become his wife. Luckily, a couple hiking near by sees the proposal and snaps some awesome photos. As a result this couple now has one of the coolest proposal photos I have ever seen. If this type of proposal suits you, make sure you enlist some help to capture that perfect moment.
A Public Display of Affection
When we find the one we love, we are so happy that we want to shout it from the rooftops just to make sure everyone knows we have found the one. Let’s be honest now, some of us secretly want that proposal in front of a crowd or in a public place where hundreds of random people can be witness to your partner’s declaration of love. Here is a unique take on making a public proposal intimate and romantic.
The bride-to-be meets a colleague in a crowded restaurant for a “business” meeting. Unbeknownst to her, the meeting was actually set up by her boyfriend to ensure she was at this specific restaurant. A little while into the meeting she spots her boyfriend walking up to her table. “What are you doing here” she asks him. He looks at her and there (in the middle of the restaurant) he lifts his hand and snaps his fingers. Immediately the entire restaurant freezes mid meal, laugh and conversation. It is now just the two of them, alone in a crowded restaurant. He is able to tell her exactly what she means to him, kneel and propose. She accepts and with another snap of his fingers the restaurant explodes in applause.
No matter the type of proposal your fiance has in store for you, it is ultimately about celebrating and cementing the fact that you have found in each other the piece you did not know was missing. On top of a mountain, in a crowd or amongst family and friends, the proposal marks the beginning of the new life you will share together.
