    Creative Marriage Proposals


    You’ve got it pictured in your head—the perfect time, the perfect place, the perfect mood. She enters from the left, unsure what is going on. You come up to her, give her a speech about ‘commitment’, and kneel to her with a ring in hand, before saying those four immortal words, ‘will you marry me?’

    This may be the perfect proposal scenario, but some people prefer to go beyond sapphire engagement rings and violin players when it comes to popping the big question. Take a look at these unique and sometimes strange engagement proposals that you might want to adopt for your own proposal!

    -Go big with the message

    There are men out there who find it hard to speak their minds. They’ll probably find it harder to ask the person they love to get hitched, too. These situations call for drastic measures, and you can’t go any more drastic than using a big area to spell out your proposal. By ‘big’, it’s not just a big signage outside her house door with your proposal message on. You can go big by setting up message spelled out in an open field, on lit windows in an office building, or the old stand-in of a plane tugging a banner.

    -The hunt for love

    This idea fits the profile of people who love the thrill of puzzles and problem-solving. Plan with her friends to set up clues and puzzles in a place that you both frequent, like a park that you spend time in together, or your old school. Think of it as a sort of ‘Crystal Maze’ scenario, with puzzles set in different ‘zones’ which hold meaning to you both. You can then pop the question when she gathers all the pieces and completes the final puzzle, which can spell out the proposal for you and help you get your message across.

    -Propose in paradise

    Whether it’s a sun-soaked beach in Monte Carlo, a tree-covered park walk in Barcelona, or a snow-capped peak in the Alps, an overseas vacation lets couples enjoy some quality time for themselves, away from the bustle of work and the hustle of life at home. For the more enterprising men out there, this is also a good time to propose. Vacations can offer a lot more possibilities to explore, and whichever place you choose to stay in, you can use the atmosphere to make things more romantic. This is a good option for those who have the funds to spend!

    -Become an internet sensation

    It is common to see viral videos of people proposing in some unique and out-of-the-box ways. Yet, few seem to grasp the power of internet when it comes to making that proposal. Why not harness the power of Youtube to create a proposal video that shows an actual live stream of you with the ring in your hand? It’s tricky, but if you have tech-savvy friends it can all go smoothly, and you’ll be internet famous too! For a case study, take a look at this guy who tapped the powers of Buzzfeed and advice animals to propose to his girlfriend.

    -Cultural Exchange

    This is one of the crazier options available, and is only advisable for men who know the risks. Around the world, there are many unique traditions that take place during the engagement period and right before the marriage itself, like breaking through a whole mob of women before being able to reach the wife-to-be, giving a wooden spoon to her as a symbol of keeping her away from hunger, or sharing a toast in replica toilet bowls. Culture-curious people can explore these ideas if they know their significant other or their significant other’s family won’t think of them as daft after the proposal!

    Proposals are a key part of life, a major milestone in a relationship. Nothing is stopping you from making it as memorable as possible! Do you have a unique proposal story to share? Or are you planning something special for the big day? Let us know in the comments or give us a call to find out how Hatton Jewels can help make the centrepiece of the big day.
