So you’ve found the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, the perfect Passion8 Diamond engagement ring, and your courage to pop the question. But you don’t want it to be just like every other proposal, so you’re searching for ways to make it more memorable. Our five creative proposal ideas are guaranteed to bring the big moment home with a bang, all while maintaining the element of surprise.
1. MAKE A STORYBOOK PROPOSAL
The way to execute a book proposal depends on the level of bookworm your partner is. If your fiancé-to-be isn’t too attached to physical books, you can purchase a hardcover copy of their favourite audiobook and cut out a small square from the middle, placing the ring inside. If your partner is an avid reader and treasures their books deeply…
Instead, secure the ring to a thin piece of ribbon and place it between the book’s pages, taping the other end of the ribbon to the back of the book to ensure it stays in place while your unsuspecting partner returns to their last page.
That’s what we call a great proposal story!
2. USE AN LED SIGN
An LED sign is the perfect way to sprinkle something creative into a more traditional proposal. Available for custom orders on plenty of sites, these signs can be paired up with small generators to make them friendly for an outdoor proposal, or simply plugged in for a sweet hotel room proposal on a getaway. Custom order yours in your partner’s favourite colour or even include their name at the end for something extra personal.
3. HOST A TREASURE HUNT
Creative and fun, what’s not to like about a treasure hunt with the find of a lifetime at the end of it? Set up little notes around the house or your holiday stay to lead your partner to you, and then surprise them with your proposal.
Hint: try to link your notes and leads to sentiment wherever you can to make the end reveal even more emotional.
4. GET PET FRIENDLY
If you and your partner share a pet together, getting your furry, feathery or scaley friend involved is a great idea to make the moment even more sweet and special. Tie your engagement ring box or a “will you marry me?” message to your pet’s collar or place it by their enclosure for your partner to find.
One thing’s for certain, getting your dog involved is the best way to include a third party that’s going to be just as excited by your excitement as you are!
5. OFFER A SPECIAL FORTUNE COOKIE
Like LED signs, fortune cookies can be custom-ordered to include personalised messages. Offering one of these sweet treats to your fiancé-to-be at the end of a romantic dinner is the perfect creative touch to a traditional proposal, making it the best of both worlds.
