15 Creative Ways To Propose

The story of how you proposed will be one your fiancée will be telling for years to come (or at least for the year leading up to the wedding). So make it a memorable one by taking a cue from one of these 15 creative ideas.

Recreate your first meeting/date. Revisit the place you first met or go out to the same place where you had your first date. After reminiscing about how lucky you are to have met her, then you can surprise her with the ring.

Send her on a scavenger hunt. Set up a scavenger hunt that will send her to all of the local spots that mean something to the both of you. At the end of the hunt, you’ll be waiting with the ring.

Plan a surprise trip. Who doesn’t want to be swept away for a romantic weekend?

Take out an ad in the paper. If you have a woman that reads the Sunday paper, take out an ad that she can’t miss.

Write her a love song. Even if you’re not exactly John Legend, there’s not a woman on the planet who wouldn’t appreciate a serenade from the man she loves.

Make a video and play it at the local movie theater. This takes a bit more prep work than the average proposal. Make a video–you can even get friends and family members to make cameos throughout–and then rent out the local movie theater to play it for her.

Fill a room with memories. Fill a room with flowers and different photos of your courtship. Bonus points if you also have some candles lit throughout. You can even do something like this.

Create a puzzle. If your lady is a puzzle lover, you can have a custom one made at a site like portraitpuzzles.com that spells out your proposal.

Plan a surprise party. If you want your loved ones to be a part of the proposal, plan a surprise party for your girlfriend’s birthday. After she gets over that shock, you can then get down on one knee and really throw her for a loop.

Go on a helicopter ride. Arrange a local tour around the city. You can pop the question in the air or if you have the resources, do something like this.

Light some candles. Arrange lit candles–either inside or outside her bedroom window–to read out “Will you marry me?” (Here’s some inspiration.)

Put a message in a bottle. Planning a trip to the beach? Write her a love note and put it in a bottle, and then arrange for her to find it during your day.

Take her on a wild ride. If your girlfriend is an adrenaline junkie–or just really loves a good roller coaster–find a way to propose during the ride, like this guy did at Disneyland.

Incorporate her love of books. Find a hard copy of one of her favorite books, and then do this.

Make it permanent. Carve your proposal into a tree–preferably in your backyard or at your parents’ house. (Use this as your guide.)
