Innovative Marriage Proposals

Posted by Treetopia in The Treetopian Lifestyle

Level up your marriage proposal plans this Valentine’s Day with creative ways to pop the question

Marriage proposals on Valentine’s Day may be cheesy or predictable to some but you have to admit, they are definitely an awesome way to celebrate the love between two people. As an advocate of love and anything fabulous, Treetopia presents to you innovative ways you may employ when you want to pop the question to your partner.


A Very Public Display of Affection

Show the world how wonderful your partner is or simply show your partner how big your love is by proposing in public. If you both love sports or the theater, you can talk to the organizers, manager, or producer of a game or show and propose to your partner during half-time or curtain call. Watch this romantic proposal of Erik Schroeder to Nina O’ Keefe, both stage actors, published at the NBC Chicago Events page, during the curtain call of her show and melt.

Specific Loves

If there is something your partner specifically loves or enjoys, you can use that to your advantage. For instance, your partner may love reading books. You can have a special book with the cover of her favorite book made, but with your profession of love inside. If your partner happens to love flowers or gardening, in general, you can take her to the park and propose once you reach the area where flowers are in full bloom.

Reminiscin’ Romance

If you and your partner are the type of couple who likes to reminisce about your moments together, you can take your partner to the place where you had your first date, the special spot where I love you’s were first spoken or any place of significance in during the course of your relationship. Prepare a surprise romantic dinner or picnic as you enjoy each other’s company in your special spot. It’s up to you if you want to propose before, during or after the meal. Here’s the romantic proposal story of Jason Fordley to Kelly Riplinger posted on 7×7.com.


Nerds can Be Romantic Too

If you and your partner are geeks about something or share a specific experience, you can propose with that thing in mind. Just take a look at David Mosher’s nerdy proposal in the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven’s National Laboratory.

Shared Journey

Sometimes, it pays to watch your journey together through a different medium. If you’re the creative type, you can stage a production of your life together. If not, you can always ask someone to do it for you, but under your direct supervision. You can even inject something that you or your partner loves. Just melt into puddles as you read Jim’s proposal to Julie through a humor-infused, comic book style webpage that showed their entire journey together, including his battle with cancer and how Julie helped him through it. When you’re done with that, you can watch this sweet Muppet-inspired proposal of Sid Ceaser to Sara Prindiville.

Humor Gets Bonus Points

Considering the seriousness of this decision to propose, injecting humor into your proposal will definitely receive plus points, especially if your partner loves to laugh. Just take a look at Matt’s proposal to Ginny that can rival even the most romantic of movies.

How about a Tree with That?

If you’re still thinking up of a way to propose, why not involve a Valentine’s Tree in your plans? Our Kindle Love with a Valentine Tree post can teach you how to decorate for a romantic Valentine’s date with your partner. You can even set up the tree for Christmas and refuse to take it down. Ask your partner to help you take down the tree on Valentine’s Day, only to find the engagement ring’s box under the tree or hanging on one of the branches and you on your knees, ready to pop the question.

However you’re planning your proposal, whether you have an elaborate stage prepared or a simple, intimate setting, remember that the day you propose is a special day for both of you. Taking a relationship to the next level is a serious decision and your commitment to each other is more important than all the flair and drama anyone can think of… but it doesn’t hurt to have awesome proposal plans prepared, too.
