5 Unique engagement ideas

5 Proposal ideas to get you started

I’ll be following up with lots of ideas and hopefully some fall outside the normal marriage proposal ideas,  amend and tweak any marriage proposal idea you want your plans  to capture the perfect proposal idea but it needs to be perfect to you both not just the same as someone else’s.

Asking your 'soul mate'

For their hand in marriage is an event that (hopefully) happens once in a lifetime. So you really need to put in the time, thought and effort to make it as romantic and memorable as possible. Your marriage proposal story is one that would be narrated to friends and acquaintances for the rest of your life, so you need to make it unique and irresistible.
In this article, we have outlined 5 unique engagement ideas that you can adopt when popping the grand question.

As you go through the list and consider running with any of these, we advise that you add your personal twist to it so that it suits you and your partner’s personality.

A trip down memory lane

A little nostalgia goes a long way

This could be as simple as a spot that means something to them or you both, reinforcing good memories with more is always a safe plan or you could take twist on this…

Create a trail of romantic memories you have had with your partner in the form of pictures arranged in different boxes, with handwritten notes placed in each box.
While you walk along the trail from box to box with your partner opening each box and reading the notes that go with each box, you can have her favorite song playing in the background.
When you walk to the last box, you then lead them, it could be a big banner… “will you marry me” question written on it.

A trip down memory lane

This is best suited if she/he travels a lot or lives in a different city from you. When she/he lands at the airport, you can hold up a series of cardboard bearing short notes narrating the big moments you both have had together. OR just a simple “will you marry me” works too. If you can get some help you can have lots of fun with this idea.

The new meaning to the mile high club

In this scenario, you should arrange for a holiday or weekend get-away trip. When the plane is wheels-up and at cruise altitude, you could have the pilot or air hostess read out your proposal note over the public address system, while you go down the traditional way and present the ring to her. For this to work, you will need to have a prior arrangement with the pilot or air hostess before take-off. – Something i doubt any of their friends know as a proposal story.

Flashback clip

Make a short 3-minute video containing pictures and short video clips capturing nostalgic moments of you and your soul mate. The proposal question should be the last frame in the clip.

You can have this done by yourself with an app like windows movie maker for PC or Apple iMovie for Mac. You can alternatively have this outsourced to a freelancer at a small budget.
You can go ahead to present this clip as a trailer at the cinema (during a movie night out) before the main movie comes on. You can arrange this with the cinema prior to the day or you could do a private view of holiday pictures and slip it in that way or better yet if there is a local public big screen you can normally pay to get something displayed easy enough.

In Bristol their is one in Millennium Square which would be great in the summer!
