From simple and intimate to big and spectacular, a proposal is something many couples will remember for the rest of their lives. It’s a way to show your significant other how romantic and thoughtful you are and create a special moment together. Some couples tend to overdo this event and make it one to remember, while others like to stick to a private event that will be special just for the two of them. No matter which option you choose, planning a proposal can be hard and complicated and there are many factors you need to consider.

Out in the nature

If you’re adventurous and like to spend time outside, organizing a proposal out in nature is the best option for you. You can choose a beautiful setting in the woods and plan something special just for the two of you. Set up interesting lighting, a nice picnic, and some romantic music. This will allow you to have a private moment where you can dance, laugh, and enjoy a romantic evening. On the other hand, you can always go for a nice hike that you can finish by popping the question at the end of the trail at sunset. Have someone take pictures because this will be something you’ll want to cherish for the rest of your lives and relive this beautiful moment over and over again.

Organize a photoshoot

If you like taking photos and enjoy keeping memories, organize a photoshoot and make it cool with the two of you dressed simple and being spontaneous. While you’re being photographed, play your favorite music and once you hear your favorite song, get down on one knee and ask the question. The best thing about this kind of proposal is that you’ll get pictures from every second of it which will be one of the best memories from that day. Once your significant other says yes, pose for some post-engagement photos too!

I woke up like this

Sometimes we forget to notice some small things and we live a hectic life where we don’t have time for special moments, especially in the morning. Plan to stay in bed over the weekend and take this opportunity to place a beautiful fine diamond jewelry piece on a pillow, and it’s going to be the first thing your loved one sees after waking up. Make a speech to show your love and appreciation, and finish it off by proposing. It’s the simplicity that sometimes matters the most and making your love the center of the proposal will make it the perfect option for the two of you.

Your favorite place

Everyone loves a good proposal idea so if you have a special place where you like to go, that can play a huge role in planning the event. No matter if it’s your favorite coffee shop, a bookstore, a wall climbing arena, or the gym, you can try to organize a proposal after the closing hours. With the help of a small piano or string orchestra and a few romantic words, you’ll make something romantic and unique that will be special and unique. You can even take everything to a whole new level if you write a poem, no matter how talented you are, because the intention itself will be more important than how well you’re rhyming your words.

Make a wish come true

If you want to disguise the proposal, think about making your partner’s wish come true to make them think that this isn’t the real reason you’re organizing the event in the first place. Whether it’s a trip to your favorite place, a boat ride, or something else, organize everything and show your partner that you plan on making their every wish come true. Finish your speech by asking your partner if your only wish could become true and then show the ring. It will be a sweet, romantic, and special moment, and that’s what all proposals should be like.

With so many proposal ideas out there, it’s hard to stay unique and think of something that will be special and show your partner that you put some effort and thinking into creating a nice moment for them. Sometimes, proposals that are simple can be most effective if you include something special to you and your love story, so don’t be afraid to go simple all the way!
