10 unique wedding proposal ideas
Are you looking for unique wedding proposal ideas? Here are some of our favourite ways to pop the question that are as special as your love story.
1. Keep on running
If you love to run together then why not plan out a very special route that spells out your proposal? Bonus points if you finish up somewhere that has special meaning to you both, like the place you met or the site of your first date. Feeling unfit? A simple “Marry me?” should suffice. Just don’t forget to turn your tracker on!
2. Get lost in a good book
For couples who love each other and reading, hiding your proposal in a copy of their favourite book could be the way to go – although if their favourite is The Shining then maybe go with their second choice instead.
3. Love is the sweetest thing
Who can say no to chocolate?! Our Will You Marry Me Chocolates might just be the sweetest proposal ever, plus you can personalise the box with a photo and message for a keepsake they’ll want to hang on to long after the chocolate’s gone (which we guarantee will be pretty flipping fast). Keep it simple and slide it across the table during a romantic dinner at the restaurant where you had your first date or go big and helicopter it in with a full mariachi band: the choice is yours.
4. Scream if you want to go faster
This one takes a little organization and some willing co-conspirators but this super fun proposal idea is perfect for high adrenaline couples and is guaranteed to give you a memorable day out. Make use of the automatic camera on a log flume or rollercoaster and get a great photo of you asking your other half to take the plunge right as you take the plunge. Need some help? Get a how-to here.
5. Signs point to yes!
Who doesn’t love a Magic 8 Ball? Proposing with this classic toy is quirky and fun, and you’ll have a great keepsake afterwards as well. If you’re good with your hands you can find instructions online to hack your own, or if you’re a liability with a screwdriver then you can grab a customized one here.
6. I flipping love you
Tell your significant other that you think they’re flipping awesome with an incredibly cute personalised flipbook. Get creative with the felt tips and make your own, or buy online here.
7. Ready Player 2
The perfect marriage proposal should reflect what’s unique about you and what you love to do together – so if gaming or board games are your thing then why not combine the two?
8. Say cheese!
Sure we all have cameras on our phones these days, but photobooths still have a sweet retro appeal, plus you’ll have some amazing photos of the special moment. Keep the theme going with a photobooth at your wedding for some more memorable snaps.
9. The hunt is over
Celebrate everything that makes your relationship special with a customised treasure hunt – you can keep it small and stay home or go large and cover a whole area, maybe visiting places that have special meaning for the two of you. Your clues can incorporate photos, small gifts, or simply the reasons why you love them. If you’re looking for more inspiration, check out this epic wedding proposal scavenger hunt here.
10. I love you more than coffee
Whether it’s served up with breakfast in bed or the perfect afternoon tea, let the love of your life know they’re you’re cup of tea with a secret message hidden at the bottom of their mug. Just make sure you pick an occasion when they’ll definitely have time to finish their drink. Buy online here.
