5 Romantic Ways to Propose on Valentine’s Day
February 14, the day dedicated to lovers, is a popular time for making wedding proposals. Ensure a resounding “Yes!” by popping the question in one of these 5 romantic ways.
Make your proposal truly special by organizing an elaborate Valentine’s Day scavenger hunt that requires visiting some of the sites of the most significant moments during your relationship. Call to mind intimate memories by revisiting the places where you had your first date, first kiss and other memorable times together. Get creative and write thoughtful clues that show how much you care, and make sure the last clue leads to you on bended knee with engagement ring in hand.
If your Valentine loves to be the center of attention, pop the question in public among a sea of onlookers. Arrange to have your wedding proposal shown on the Jumbotron during a basketball or hockey game. You can also go big while creating an ultra-romantic moment by choreographing a flash mob. Tell your intended you forgot to buy a Valentine’s Day gift and need to go to the mall to pick out something. Annoyance will turn to joy when the crowd breaks into a dance that culminates in a memorable proposal.
Despite its deserved reputation as Sin City, Las Vegas also carries an air of romance. The Fountains of Bellagio, with its water dancing to the romantic music of Frank Sinatra and other crooners, makes a particularly great backdrop for a marriage proposal. For a fee, you can have the fountains synchronized to Elton John’s “Your Song” – perhaps the perfect prelude to an unforgettable engagement.
Get on the road to romance
Changing the scenery can set the stage for making a romantic wedding proposal. Taking a trip to Paris lets you pop the question atop the Eiffel Tower and then place your love lock on the bridge along the Pont Neuf, securing your love for a lifetime. Or do as the Romans do and propose at Trevi Fountain. You could also recruit Mother Nature to help you create a romantic moment during a Hawaiian sunset or while stopping at a lookout along California’s Big Sur.
While grand gestures make for unforgettable Valentine’s Day proposals, many of the sweetest moments happen at home. If your intended prefers heartfelt sentiment to over-the-top displays of affection, making an impromptu proposal may be the way to go.
As you go about your daily routine, watch for a moment when popping the question seems perfectly natural. Waking up to see a ring on the pillow can be the start of a fantastic morning, while ending a home-cooked dinner with a wedding proposal can be sweeter than any dessert.
