10 Unique Ideas To Propose

A proposal is one of the most important memories of someone’s life. No matter how old a marriage is, the memory of the proposal is such that one cherishes and remembers it for entire life. Every minute detail of the proposal is important as it would eventually sum up to the most important question of your life. Marriage is a symbiotic relationship where it is very important to show your love for your partner. A proposal is all about expressing your feelings in words and in actions. These are ten ideas for a proposal that you might be planning.

1. Use the sky to your advantage:
The best possible way to propose is to use the sky as a canvas and express your feelings. If the right efforts are taken and things are planned well in advance, you could be very well heading to make it the most special moment of her life. If spending money is not a constraint, you could have your proposal written on the sky. Have an airplane fly with that banner for you. You could also have someone set fireworks at the moment you propose or have your message with her name in the night sky. However, care must be taken that the day is a clear one or the plan of the proposal may turn out to be a flop. It will be a good idea to check out with the weather station and local authorities for permissions.

2. Take her to places symbolizing love:
Imagine her ecstasy when you ask her the most important question of her life amidst the backdrop of a monument symbolizing love. Places all over the world like the Taj Mahal, Venice and the Eiffel Tower are some of the most romantic places. These places are symbols of love. The venue of the proposal plays a very important role in making it memorable as it adds up to the mood and sends the sparks flying between the lovers. Go on a vacation and propose there.

3. Light up her doorstep:
Though it sounds the easiest of all the ideas, it is indeed one of the most difficult one as it takes a lot of prior planning and a lot of personal effort. The idea is to light up her doorstep with candles. The arrangement of the candles should be such that they spell out your big question. Somewhere amidst the brightness of the candles will be the box containing the ring. To make it seem better, have the candles surround the box having the ring and leave the lid open so the ring gleams in the light of the candles. However, the arrangement has to be done in secrecy to make it a a big surprise to her.

4. Make use of advertisements:
There are so many modes of advertising that would ensure that your message is delivered to her. You could give a big advertisement with both your names written clearly and your question. She would get a surprise early in the morning and the effort would make her feel on top of the world. However, it is important to find out about the newspaper she reads. You should give this idea a miss if your sweetheart is not into newspapers as your effort might just go unnoticed. The second technique is to have a local movie theater play your proposal before the movie starts and right after the advertisements are done. You could pick her up early and then go down on your knees when the proposal plays. In this case, make sure you both reach the theater on time or the effort will be wasted. The last one is to have your proposal written on a billboard and then slowly attract attention to it, when both of you are driving past the area. She will surely succumb to your love.

5. Try your luck at the airport:
Propose to her at the airport. If you know that she is arriving by a flight, take advantage of that. Have a few buddies come together to help you through this one. Make either one large banner with the question written on it, or make small pieces with one person carrying a single letter. Either ways make sure that you are right at the end of the line holding the question mark and sporting that innocent look. She is sure to be surprised and pleased by this one.

6. Use engraved chocolates:
One of the novel ideas is to propose to her with engraved chocolates. If you know that your sweetheart loves chocolates, then there can be no better way to sweeten her mood for the question that has been in your mind ever since you saw her. Have your message engraved on the largest piece of chocolate and place it right at the center of a box. Have this surrounded by other smaller chocolate pieces with the picture of other things symbolizing love like rings, hearts and the sorts.

7. Make a getaway to somewhere romantic:
Go to a place where the two of you are absolutely alone. Right then there should be nothing and no one that should come between the two of you.Take her to an exotic location where you could tell her about your feelings and ultimately propose to her. If you cannot take her somewhere exotic, you could take her to a place where you are sure that it would only be the two of you. Some places where you could take her would be the beach, right at the top of the hill or in the woods.

8. The good old candlelight dinner:
Nothing beats the good old candlelight dinner. However, this is another of those ideas that would involve a lot of personal effort. You could call her over for dinner. Just to change the mood, set the dinner in the garden instead. Set the table lavishly with just a single bright candle. Let the menu be a special one with all her favorites incorporated in it. If your culinary skills are not worth boasting about, it would be wise to give the cooking a miss and have dinner come in from her favorite restaurant. Try and pop the question just after the main course and right before the dessert.

9. Highlight different words of the book she is reading:
This way of proposal is an absolute treat for the book lovers. When she is reading a book in your presence, borrow the book from her for a minute and highlight the words in such a way that they read out your question to her. When you return the book to her, let her figure this out for herself. Another way is to make a crossword puzzle just for her if she is someone who loves solving them. Let her figure things out herself and she is sure to be on cloud nine.

10. Refresh her memory:
The best possible way is to relive your very first date right from the beginning. Try and pay attention to details like taking her to the same place you did and you wearing the same set of clothes you did then. Remind her of the little things during the first date like parts of the conversation, funny things you might have done then and other such stuff. During the conversation tell her that you love her a lot and that she is someone very special in your life.

Proposals generally make men jittery. Men seem to be extremely unsure about how to propose as they want everything to be just about perfect for the woman of their dreams. There is also a fear of rejection if things get messed up. The most important thing for a proposal is to put in your effort.
