Love is in the air. And as we launch head-first into 2022, weddings are back on the agenda for the first time in what feels like forever.
As we enter this new season of optimism and romance, we share with you some of the most creative proposal ideas we’ve come across during our many years in the wedding industry.
So, if you’re thinking of popping the question anytime soon, or just want to give him or her some not-so-subtle hints, this is a must-read to make it happen.
Creative Proposal Idea #1: Light Me Up
There’s nothing more romantic than candlelight.
Think a room full of flickering tea lights and sensuous aromas, with your-spouse-to-be down on one knee, and an outstretched hand clutching a perfectly sized ring box!
Extra creativity points go to the groom who held the sign that said his soon-to-be bride’s name with the message: “You are the light of my life.” Awwwww!
If you’re considering a Valentine’s Day proposal, truly set your beloved’s heart on fire with a personalised Valentine's Day Engraved Soy Candle. Inscribe your special message of love in the handsome wooden lid for a stunningly original and heartfelt proposal scene.
Creative Proposal Idea #2: Picnic Perfect
If you and your partner love nothing more than escaping to the great outdoors for some quality time together, why not set the scene by creating the perfect picnic proposal?
Choose a location that is close to both your hearts, grab some appetising hors d'oeuvres and some expensive Champagne, and choose the perfect moment to pop the question.
Make it all the more special by adding personalised touches like a Valentine's Day Engraved Round Wooden Cheese Set – you can even inscribe it with the all-important question if you think your lips might fail you at the last minute!
This is also a winner for commemorating anniversaries or even as a wedding gift for other happy couples, along with other unique picnic and entertainment accessories like the popular Paddle Chopping Board & Cheese Knife Set.
Creative Proposal Idea #3: Spice It Up
Some couples like it hot.
So, if that’s your style, stick to what you know best for a creative proposal that will be sure to guarantee you a “YES!” We’re not going to get too kinky here, but a fun and creative way to propose is to incorporate a game into your repertoire.
The Personalised Spicy Date Night Dice Game provides the ideal entertainment as you lead up to asking the BIG QUESTION. And for those who like it a little tamer, you can always try the regular version: all the fun, without the spice.
Creative Proposal Idea #4: Sent with Love
For some of us, it’s always been easier to write our feelings down, rather than having to say them out loud.
If the thought of having to enact a verbal proposal makes you weak at the knees (and not in a good way!), get creative by popping the question in written form: a letter, postcard or personalised sign.
Deliver it in person so you’re there to capture your partner’s reaction, or do it the old- fashioned way and mail your message of love for the ultimate surprise.
Creative Proposal Idea #5: The Ultimate Romantic
To create the ultimate unique and romantic proposal, nothing beats telling the one you love all the best things about them and describing why you want to be by their side forever.
The best and most creative way to achieve this is with the beautifully crafted ‘30 Reasons Why I Love You’ Engraved Mason Jar. Featuring 30 wooden hearts and a quality black pen, there’s no more excuses for not telling your special someone how you feel about them.
Top it off with bended knee and a big diamond, and you’ve got yourself the ultimately creative and romantic Valentine’s Day proposal.
Creative Proposal Idea #6: The Anti-Proposal
If proposing, or being proposed to, is so far off your radar this Valentine’s Day you might as well fly to the moon, we highly recommend proudly celebrating your single status instead.
It’s the ideal opportunity to recognise the ones you love most – and by this we mean the loyal, dependable, four-legged, furry companions who have stuck by your side through thick and thin.
