Proposal Ideas That Are Fun for Both the Bride and the Groom
By Roxana Oliver
Who says proposals should be fun and unforgettable only for the bride? Proposals are an important event for both parties and they can be done in a way that both of you will enjoy. If you want your proposal to be fun both for the future bride and the groom, here are some ideas for your think about.
Ask your favorite celebrity for help
If you’re both huge fans of the same sports team, or if you share the love for a famous musician, consider involving them in the proposal. This might require a little bit more effort than a classic dinner and ring in the dessert story, but it will certainly be memorable. Make sure you choose someone you both love, so it can be special for both of you. For instance, if you met at a concert, you could contact that celebrity’s PR and see if you could pull off a proposal during the performance. Some couples even managed to have their proposal on stage! Or you can even ask for a little shout-out from the celebrity. You will be surprised how many celebrities helped people with their proposals.
Travel to your dream destination
Have you talked about your dream travel destinations and agreed how both of you would love to see India or Australia? Why not make it happen, and make the vacation even more memorable for both of you by making it the country where you proposed? This way, your love for that place will be even greater and you will always want to return there. I know about an excellent proposal planner in Sydney who can help you with the details and even give you some amazing ideas about the city’s most romantic spots.
Make it a double proposal
If you had enough of traditional groom-gets-rings proposals, you can forget about it and propose to one another. You can do many different and unique things with that proposal, but it’s best if you discuss the general idea with your partner. You can go shopping for rings together and set a date for your mutual proposal, or you can keep all your plans a secret and surprise your significant other. This way you will both have the engagement of your dreams and make each other the happiest person alive.
Involve your friends
There’s nothing better than involving your friends or family into your proposal. Ask your mutual friends to make a video talking about your relationship and all the fun and unforgettable moments you’ve spent together. At the end of the video, they can pop the question: “Michael, would you marry Jane?” Watching this video will be super fun and touching for both of you, and you will be able to rewatch it forever.
Propose during your favorite activity
If you have a tradition to play basketball on Sundays, or if you’re both bikers and enjoy long rides by the seashore, why not incorporate these activities into your proposal? For instance, after her basketball team wins, you can congratulate her on the victory, take the knee and ask your victor to be your wife. Or you can recreate your first motorcycle road trip, stop at your favorite spot at sunset and pop the question. This way, every time you engage in that certain activity, you will remember how special it is for both of you.
If you think of something that both of you love and enjoy and incorporate it into your proposal, I can guarantee that you will remember it for the rest of your lives. Be creative and brave, and they will surely say yes!
