It's About Time!

Yes or No?

You have finally found the love of your life. You are ready to spend the rest of your life with your partner. You are prepared to commit to marriage.

It's time to plan your marriage proposal. You don't want to just propose. You want the moment to be memorable and unique.

You ponder a few ideas. You ask a family member or friend in confidence for suggestions. You might even use Google for advice.

I hope you find these ideas useful or better yet, you take a few ideas and make them your own.

This list is useful for any type of relationship. It's not just the man who proposes to the female anymore. Females are now taking the initiative. If you are in a same sex relationship, this list will be useful for you also.

If you do happen to use one of the ideas listed please post a comment and let me know. I wish you good luck with your upcoming nuptials.

Planning A Marriage Proposal Doesn't Have To Be Stressful

I Now Introduce Mr & Mrs

  1. Place your "Will You Marry Me?" message in a bottle. Ask a friend to place the bottle in a certain area where you will be. Suggest a walk on the beach to your significant other. Imagine her surprise when she spots the bottle and reads your message!
  2. Invite your girlfriend over for dinner. Spell out "Will You Be My Wife?" with A-Z Spaghettios!
  3. Send her a text proposal while sitting in the same room. Be prepared with champagne, chocolates and Train's song "Marry Me" playing on your smart phone.
  4. Go for a hike. Be prepared beforehand and have a banner hanging above your path displaying your proposal. Be sure you are both on the same path at the time.
  5. Use your artistic abilities and draw your proposal with chalk on a walkway.
  6. Have a scavenger hunt. Give romantic clues. Eventually the list will lead to the question.
  7. Play Hangman _ _ _ _ / _ _ _ / _ _ _ _ _ / _ _?
  8. Make a video proposal. Be clever. Make a slideshow of your favorite photos as a couple.
  9. Using her favorite shade of lipstick write your proposal on the bathroom mirror. Add a check yes or no box.
  10. Place a ring in a container of Tic-Tacs. Do NOT suggest she needs a tic-tac, that would place a damper on the moment if she's thinking that you are thinking she has bad breath. Just pull out the container, pop one in your mouth (carefully) and most likely she'll ask for one. Well, hopefully she will.

Train - Marry Me

Marry Me Please!

11. Mention you need a tax deduction, hopefully she'll need health insurance. Sounds like a good plan to me.

12. Create a hub, here on HubPages expressing your love and ask for her hand in marriage.

13. Have a Balloon Pop. Place a piece of paper in four balloons and a ring in the fifth. One balloon will have Will, another You, continue with Marry, Me and the ring.

14. Create a Jigsaw Puzzle with your favorite photo as a couple. Once it's completed, pop the question.

15. Go old school and place the ring in a box of Cracker Jacks. I bet that's one "toy surprise" she'll never forget.

16. Plan to meet up at the first place you met. Whether it was the produce department at the grocery store or at a friends party. Arrange to have a photographer hiding nearby to capture the moment. What woman wouldn't want to be proposed to among the mounds of apples and sprigs of parsley?

17. Arrange a day of pampering for your significant other and a few of her friends. Treat them to manicures and pedicures. Have them meet you at a restaurant for a cocktail afterwards. This is when you'll pop the question. I guarantee her friends would accept you if they didn't before.

18. If you have a child or children, have them wear a t-shirt that says, "Will You Marry My Dad?"

19. Plan a date at a Pottery Place and suggest you make plates. While you are creating your masterpiece write your proposal on the plate. She'll have an everlasting memory of your special moment.

20. Write "Will You Be Mine?" on her car's windshield using Window Markers. They wash off easily.

Chandler and Monica's Proposal

With These Rings I Thee Wed

21. Purchase a copy of the "Marriage for Dummies" book. Place it in an obvious place for her to spot. Tell her you don't know where it came from. Hopefully she'll flip through the book and discover your proposal which will be written in the center of the book with a red marker. Hopefully she also has a good sense of humor.

22. Using her favorite color ribbon tie a ring around her precious pets collar.

23. Write your proposal on a dry erase board or a chalk board. Wrap it with pretty paper. Have the ring hidden within a festive bow. The board would make a nice conversation piece in your home, unless she erases the proposal and uses it for your honey-do list instead.

24. Score some tickets to her favorite sporting event. Have four friends with you who will each hold up a sign Will, You, Marry, Him during intermission.

25. If you are really daring you could post a status update on Facebook asking for her hand in marriage. I bet you'd get many "likes" or maybe not. Like I said, depends how daring you are.

26. Propose at Disney, it's the happiest place on earth. If you time it correctly, you could have a state of the art fireworks display bursting in the sky immediately following her response. Your dreams could come true.

27. Prepare a romantic meal. Place her ring in a champagne flute. Be careful she doesn't ingest the diamond.

28. If you are fans of the Friends TV show, how about watching the episode when Chandler proposes to Monica and follow with your proposal. Good luck with that one, that's a tough proposal to follow. No pressure!

29. If you are both avid Twitter users ask a favorite celebrity of the both of yours to join in on the fun and tweet your proposal for you!

30. Purchase an ad in your local newspaper. She could read your proposal over her morning coffee. Maybe she'll also purchase an ad with her answer.

Congratulations to Jennifer & David

Bonus Marriage Proposal Idea...

I heard a marriage proposal on my favorite radio station this morning. The caller asked the radio hosts if he could propose to his girlfriend via a song he wrote. He admitted he didn't have any vocal talent and he was correct, but he had nerves of steel.

The radio hosts phoned the girlfriend who was a bit in shock, but soon she was in tears saying, "YES" after her boyfriend proposed via song. It was a cute and romantic marriage proposal idea. She wanted him to come home from work pronto, but he promised to put the ring on her finger as soon as work was over. Awww!

Making Memories

This concludes my unique list of ideas. You are now on your own. Remember to be clever and capture the memories on photo or video if possible.

Make your proposal memorable. Try your best not to be nervous or anxious. Your emotions could make or break your plan. Try to have moral support on stand-by, such as a good friend or family member who could have your back if you should panic.

Wishing you much success with your journey. May you have many wonderful years of wedded bliss.

You included the "Friends" proposal- I loved that episode! And I'm glad you didn't include the flash mob thing- it's getting a little old as well as those sports event proposal. I remember that one on Ellen where the girl turned around and said no- bummer. Great hub!

Another excellent list by Sunshine the Queen of Lists. But why do I love the idea of living forever with the man of my dreams, while fearing marriage as if it is the same as 'committing suicide'......

The mere thought of marriage literally instigates an anxiety attack.

I love your lists, Linda! Absolutely brilliant - all of them.

Hugs from SA :)

fpherj48 4 years ago from Beautiful Upstate New York

Oh NO! I did not see the proposal on Ellen....She said, NO? That must have been soooo uncomfortable.

I've said, "No" so many times, I lost count..........it's probably because none of them used any of your great and CREATIVE ideas, gf!! It may have also been because IT WAS MY FINAL ANSWER. Hey, you didn't tell us how Dave proposed to YOU? Please don't tell us he wrapped your ring in a pound of salami in the butcher dept!! LOL......

The proposals I accepted were quite sweet and romantic...but that's only because I was IN LOVE.........yeah...I still remember!.....Good one again GF!...UP+++ & shared.

Love them! I have one more. White out the words "eat green eggs and ham" in the Dr. Suess book with the same title and replace it with "marry me"! Think about it -- it's the most romantic book ever and when you get old and can't remember the story of your proposal, you'll always have the book to remember (just don't let your future children get a hold of the book!!!! ;)

He proposed on a wood trail behind our house that was lined with candles just as the sun was setting. He started playing the song I can't wait by runner runner as he knelt down on one knee! It was the most romantic thing he had ever done for me and I will never forget it :-) Once again great list!

Proposing is the moment that a woman waits; it is a special day for her to hear the words from her boyfriend, “will you marry me?” The proposal should be creative, something that will create lasting memory. I like the idea “Plan to meet up at the first place you met.”

Before our engagement, he secretly surprised me by sending a bouquet of roses and box of Ferrero Rocher chocolates with a mini-card stating a famous classic Indian film song which means that he is very happy to have me as his wife!

Once again, an amazing hub!

How cute! I like the Disney World proposal with the castle in the background. Did your daughter have a Disney wedding with the characters? Your daughter and her husband make the cutest couple. The little girl next to your other daughter must be Faith when she was a baby. very nice couple & family too. I like your ideas for a marriage proposal, very creative especially the Tic tac. it's unique because the last thing anyone expects to find in there is a ring. Thanks for sharing this awesome hub.

this happened to my niece just day before yesterday, her and her boyfriend and my other niece and lil nephews went to the park, not sure how long they were there before the question was asked, well Jesa my niece was coming down the slide and just having a good time, when she just about got to the bottom, she saw her boyfriend in one knee,, then she got all the way down the slide, he was still on one knee, holding an open boxed engagement ring, "and a beautiful one at that " , well to make the story beautiful, he asked, she said yes, and there were many tears, she posted all the pictures on fb, I think mommy was clued in on this , or someone who took the great pictures, so to me, this is so romantic,, l,s, the wedding will be in Florida, hope while we are still there, ,

This is one of those hubs that needs to be dusted off and brought back out yearly for newbies to read. So many great ideas.

Romance and love make any proposal the perfect one, but you've got some great ideas here.

Voted up, useful, awesome, and interesting.

What fun ways to have someone pop the question....I love the 'will you marry my Dad?' idea...too cute.

You know (I have been divorced forever ...34 years) but I honestly do not remember how my loved one proposed...that's kind of sad...but obviously I got over it..we had nine wonderful years...

Love to read your hubs, Linda...and I am not sure if I told you but Congrats of the Hubbie Award.... Angels are on the way ps

Linda,

I returned to read your fun ... and creative ... article another time. I especially like the Nieves Family photo.

I stopped by to read this again, Linda. I'm sure any of these creative ideas would be memorable for the happy couple when they look back upon the day.

Lovely and interesting hub, so creative! I truly enjoyed going through. Relationships last longer, if the partners have great sense of humour. You have some great suggestions here.

Thank you and sharing on HP!

These are truly moments that the happily wedded couple will treasure forever. Telling and retelling the story of how the proposal went is a favorite pastime at parties and Valentine's day celebrations. You've really covered the bases for a variety of unique proposals.
