Cute Ways to Propose
Marriage proposal ideas with a bit of wit
Skywriting too overblown? Diamond ring in the chocolate mousse too risky? (Word to the wise: Chefs don't want that responsibility!) What you're looking for are some cute ways to propose -- ideas with charm and style to suit your fun-loving soon-to-be (fingers crossed) fiancee.
Here, some playful marriage proposal ideas that foreshadow a life of sweet smiles & gentle inside jokes for the two of you. Good luck!
Is your girl a dedicated daily newspaper reader? Put your proposal in the headlines. Type up something like "Matt to Emma: Will You Marry Me?" in a headline font over a happy (no crime!) story, maybe on page 2 or 3? (The front page seems a bit obvious, but hey -- it's up to you.)
Now that's news!
Marriage proposal ideas don't have to involve elaborate, pricey props or venues. Try a simple idea like this "proposal puzzle." The background hue is changeable, so you can choose her favorite color. Or why not change the background to a photo? Plug in a nice shot of the two of you together, or maybe just of you on bended knee, or holding some flowers? Ask her to help you put the puzzle together, and watch her face as she gets the message. Your future kids will make you retell this story again & again ....
Are you proposing on a cold winter day? Try this tip from theknot.com: Scratch your proposal into the frost on her car windshield. (Then prepare to drive her to work, 'cause she won't want to scrape that windshield clean!)
Make a snowman with scarf, hat, etc., and have him hold a "Will you marry me?" sign.
Or write your proposal in footsteps on fresh snow in the backyard. Say "Look how much snow we got..." -- and when she goes to the window to see, she'll get a beautiful surprise.
Words of Love
Play Hangman and have the phrase she's guessing be Marry Me. So cute!
Or write it on the fridge, with colorful alphabet magnets.
(Thanks to theknot.com for those 2 fun ideas.)
Or do something similar with Scrabble. How many points is an engagement worth? ;) You'll just need to cheat beforehand & have the right pieces up your sleeve. What an adorably nerd-a-rific tactic.
Okay, I admit I got this one from a commercial. But who could resist a cuddly pet helping to pop the question? If you've got a cooperative dog or cat, Sharpie "Marry me" onto a length of ribbon or a bandana, and tie it around your pet's neck. Warm & fuzzy!
How 'bout it? Do any of these creative proposal ideas appeal? What's your plan for popping the question? No, wait -- don't ruin the surprise!
