Marriage Proposal Ideas for a Special Valentine's Day

If you’re planning on proposing this Valentine’s Day but you’re not quite sure how to pop the question to your partner, we have some great ideas for you.

Proposing to your loved one on Valentine’s Day is not only romantic, but your loved one will never forget this special day.

So to give you some marriage proposal inspiration, here are some ideas we have for you that suit every personality:

  • The Traditional One

The First Meeting Place: Take your partner to the first place you met and show them how you still remember the first time you set your eyes on each other.

Dinner and Dessert: Take your loved one for a romantic dinner, and hide the ring in the dessert.

*TIP: For the traditional marriage proposal, make sure you get down on one knee; it’s a romantic, classic move.

  • The Creative One:

A Musical Proposal: Have a choir or band show up for a surprise performance of your fiancé-to-be's favorite love song.

Propose with Art: Arrange a surprise proposal with a caricature. Have the caricaturist sketch a picture of you two with word bubbles that say, "Will you marry me?”

  • The Fancy One:

Under The Sea: Ask the divers at an aquarium to put on a proposal show inside their biggest fish tank. Ask them to hold a sign that says, "Will you marry me?”, or take your partner snorkeling and while you’re both under the water pull out the sign!

Up In The Sky: Hire a skywriter to spell out your proposal for everyone around to see, or take your partner on a helicopter ride and propose while you’re up in the air.

  • Taking the Lead:

Who says that only men can propose? If you’re a lady who loves your partner and don’t mind proposing to him, then we have these ideas for you:

Include His Hobbies: Whether it’s after a football game, or mountain climbing, once your partner is done with all the rush, surprise him with a marriage proposal.

Take Him Down Memory Lane: Plan a romantic dinner and take your partner to a mini tour of your favorite places and first date and propose by the end of the evening.

*TIP: Make sure your partner is ok with you proposing to him, as some men feel it’s their duty to do so, so a few months before you propose ask your partner how he feels about women proposing to men.
