It’s one of the most exciting moments in our life. Whether it is a simple act or elaborate showcase of affection, a marriage proposal is a beautiful demonstration of love and commitment. Where did your partner propose to you? Were you surprised?

Recently, flash mob proposals have become a trend, which involve a bunch of strangers wowing the bride-to-be. Other trends also are including family members or friends to make a very special proposal. Whatever the case, there have certainly been some creative marriage proposals over the years.

Here is one of our favourite proposals. Take a look at this video where Dean spent a year preparing for his proposal and it’s all caught on video. It’ll be hard to plan a wedding that can top the excitement of this proposal!

Here are some other common proposal ideas:

  • Taking your sweetheart to the exact place where you had your first date.
  • Holidays are another perfect time to propose.
  • Play a trivia game together. When it is your sweetheart’s turn, casually say, “Your question is: Will you marry me?” rather than the question written on the card.
  • Scavenger hunts are always an entertaining marriage proposal idea. Start with a simple clue to and have a final location be a place where you can hide.

  1. Here’s my proposal scenario: 5.30 am pick-up at Tullamarine after I’d just returned, bleary-eyed and looking like a dish rag, from the long haul London – Dubai – Melbourne trek (visiting my daughter). I was surprised to be greeted by my 65 year-old de facto of 11 years – a bit spruced up for that early hour methought, and behaving a little oddly … Thinking he was just being a bit weird after our 6 weeks apart, I was more anxious to find a loo before the peak hour commute home … ONLY to return to find him looking very serious as he romantically took my hand and solemnly popped “the” question I wouldn’t have expected to hear from him in a million years!! He’d even had a sleepless night before … We’ve now been married for 2 years, our respective children (4 adult ones between us) love it, we travel widely, have entered the realms of grand-parenting, love watching crime and murder shows (occasionally threatening to “bump each other off”!) and laugh a heck of a lot every day. All this, since I’ve become a survivor of insidious oesophageal cancer!! Life’s good.
