Contrary to popular belief, the best ways to propose aren’t the most expensive. If you are lacking for ideas on how to best ask your partner the question, here are the most romantic and imaginative ideas.
Go to Where You First Met
For something truly memorable, why not take her back to the place where you first laid eyes on each other? It could be in the park, on the beach while on vacation or maybe your school. Go there with her and talk about the first time you met, and how you felt. As you reminisce, get on down on one knee and propose to her.
In a Restaurant
One of the best ways to propose marriage is the following. Pick your anniversary date (i.e., six months / one year being together). Take her to a restaurant and order some wine. You can bring some friends or it can be just the two of you. At any rate, make a toast. Say something like, “I don’t like it when you ask how much I love you. You should be asking how long, because…” Pause here and bring out the ring. “My answer is, for eternity. Will you marry me?”
If your partner is the adventurous and fun spirited type, you can try this one. Set up a scavenger or egg hunt (you can also do this on her birthday.) To make this one of the best ways to propose, set up some stops laden with other gifts (it can be DVDs, jewelry etc). For the final stop, hide yourself there. When she sees you, bring out the wedding ring and pop the question.
Hiking or Mountain Climbing
For something out of the ordinary, take her hiking or if you are both into mountain climbing, invite her on the weekend. Wait until you are at the top of the mountain. When she makes a comment about the gorgeous view, look into her eyes and say something like, “Yes, but it’s not as beautiful as you.” Go down on one knee and say, “I love you, and I don’t want to spend a day without you. Will you marry me?”
Poetry and Music
Poetry and music are among the best ways to propose. If you can write poetry, you can compose a poem. Invite her to a quiet place for just the two of you. After you finish reading, slowly bring out the box, open it and ask for her hand. If you can’t write poems, get a love poetry book. Remove the last few pages and tie the ring there. Ask her to read them, or the two of you can alternate. When she gets to the final page, ask her to marry you.
Another way is to sing her a love song. You can play a guitar and sing. Pick a love song you both like and at the conclusion, ask her to marry you.
As you can see, the best ways to propose marriage don’t involve a lot of money. Yes you can spend a sum if you want to. But what will really make it memorable will be the way you express your feelings toward her. Using any of these methods, you’re bound to have a proposal that you will both remember for the rest of your lives.
