Proposal Ideas

Below are 20 great and modern proposal ideas to help you ask the question to the one you love. If none of these ideas are original enough for you, visit us at H. Brandt Jewelers and we'll help you plan the perfect way to pop the question!

  1. If you're savvy on the web, create a website and give it a unique name like "JohnSmithLovesSarahJones.com" or whatever you think best represents your love for her. Send her the link in an email, and make sure she checks it while you're around. On the website, make a slide show of pictures of you and her, in chronological order since you met. At the end of the slideshow, add text that asks her to marry you. Maybe have a picture of you holding the ring on the last slide.
  2. Timing is everything. If you have a lot of mutual friends, plan a surprise party at your house for her. Create a Facebook group titled "Will You Marry Me, (First Name, Last Name)?" Make sure she gets Facebook on her mobile phone. Then, on your way home from work, invite her to the Facebook group right before the party begins. Try to plan it so she's looking at it right when you open the door to your house.
  3. Take her to a movie, and arrange to have an advertisement playing before the movie begins, which pops the question to her on the screen. This idea can also work well after the movie, especially if it's a love story. Just make sure to stay for the credits.
  4. Plan a romantic vacation with her. Call a limousine company to pick you up from the airport and have them hold a sign that says "Will you marry me?" Make sure the limo is stocked with some nice champagne or whatever she likes. This should start your trip off with a romantic kick, and make your vacation a memorable one.
  5. Bring her to a nice place which can accommodate several people. Have a group of friends waiting around the corner or in another room. When the proposal goes well, have a text message ready to be sent, so they can all come out and celebrate the great news with you both. Make a big deal about it and show her how happy you are that she said "yes."
  6. If you're both runners, write the proposal question in chalk along her usual running route. Plan to go with her that morning, and bring the engagement ring with you. Just for the sake of suspense, write her first name on the sidewalk, then a quarter mile later, write her last name, and then a quarter mile after that, write the full question on the sidewalk: Will You Marry Me? Give her the ring then, and get down on one knee.
  7. Make a playlist for her including songs that represent your love for each other. The songs don't have to be literal like "Let's Get Married," although it might give her a few exciting hints. At the end of the playlist, pop the question.
  8. Family is important. Book a special day for her and her mother at the spa. Treat them to the works. Tell her mother about what you plan on doing so that she can be in on it too. At the end of her massage, walk in the room and propose to her.
  9. Pull out the special engagement ring box from H. Brandt Jewelers. Open the box and show her the ring, looking deep into her eyes. Pull the ring out of the box and tell her that the ring itself represents your strong connection with each other. Tell her that the center diamond represents your love for each other, which shines brighter than the sun. Tell her if she marries you that your love will be everlasting like this diamond, made from the strongest material found on earth.
  10. Make a list of every single thing that you love about her, and have it printed on nice paper with elegant font. Then get on one knee when she reaches the end. The last thing you list could be that she said yes when you proposed to her.
  11. Plan a movie night with just you and her at home. Tell her the movie is a surprise. Instead of playing the movie, play a DVD that you created, which plays a slideshow of you and her set to your favorite songs. At the end of the slideshow, add the text "Will You Marry Me?"
  12. Take her out to your favorite restaurant, and have the wait staff bring out a menu that you designed. Some of the menu choices could be dates that you had, romantic experiences, and you could save the proposal part for the main course, or even dessert.
  13. Hang some mistletoe somewhere in your house during Christmas, and attach the ring to it. Give her a kiss, and then tell her to look up at the mistletoe, with her shiny engagement ring from H. Brandt Jewelers sparkling at her.
  14. Tell her you're taking her to dinner, but don't say where. When you get to the restaurant, have her family there waiting, then drop down on one knee.
  15. Plan a treasure hunt around your house, or even your town or city, with a string of clues that eventually lead to her engagement ring that you got her from H. Brandt Jewelers.
  16. Bring her where you went on your first date. Try to figure out a way to "casually" go there so it's a surprise.
  17. Create a Facebook event called "Will You Marry Me?" Invite only her and yourself to it. On the page, provide a link to the ring you got her from H. Brandt Jewelers.
  18. Create a photo book at Shutterstock.com and have it bound. Include photos of the two of you, in chronological order since you met. On the last page, include a picture of you holding a ring, with a sign that says "Will You Marry Me?" Give her the ring while you both get to the last page.
  19. Buy several boxes of various sizes so that each box fits inside the other. In the smallest of the boxes, put the engagement ring. This will make it seem like a present that is much larger, which may give her a playful annoyance. But most importantly, it will hide the fact that it's an engagement ring. When she gets to the smallest package, ask for her hand in marriage.
  20. Write her a poem explaining all the things you love about her, asking her to marry you at the end. Hire a calligraphist to write your poem on nicely textured paper. Buy a dozen roses and champagne, then dress up in a suit and give her the poem.
