Romantic, Low-Key Ways to Propose
So you’re going to pop the question. No doubt you’re experiencing an overwhelming cocktail of emotions: nervousness, excitement, and anticipation. The question remains: how should you propose? The most important consideration is romance. You want this person to spend the rest of their life with you. You need to show them how special they are to you. That said, you don’t need to break the bank by throwing together some over the top proposal event.
There are few things more intimate than a carefully considered, personalized, and casual proposal that shows your significant other how much you love them. Here are our picks for the best low-key ways to pop the question.
A Return to Blissful Beginnings
One of the best ways to propose is to bring your loved one to a place where you shared a first. Whether it is the park where you had your first kiss, the restaurant where you went for your first date, the spot where you started talking for the first time, proposing in a setting that will call invoke the inception of your love will make for an extremely memorable moment. Reliving those beautiful first moments are enough to make anyone say, “I do”.
Go Someplace Remote
You may have always imagined your proposal in front of a group of your friends surrounded by loved ones to share in your magic moment. Although a public proposal can be lovely, enjoying a private moment in a beautiful setting when you pop the question can also be extremely meaningful. Find a bed and breakfast in a cozy town, or rent a cabin somewhere. Go to a place where you and your significant other can cherish each other’s presence and pop the question there. With no one else is around, your proposal can feel so much more memorable and intimate. Find a serene place to make your dreams come true.
Prepare a Home-cooked Meal
Cooking is an art form, and cooking for someone else is an amazing way to show your love that you care. Prepare a beautiful meal for the two of you to show your affection. Cook your partner’s favorite dish to let them know you pay attention to what they like, and enjoy your night in together. This simple act will be all you need to set the mood and make your proposal one for the ages.
Embark on a Treasure Hunt
This task may be a little more complicated than the others, but the extra effort will make it all the more special. Create a day of adventure by creating a treasure hunt all around your favorite spots. Taking a trip down memory lane can be an amazing way to spend the day; you’ll remember what made you fall in love with your hubby in the first place. The treasure hunt should end somewhere with sentimental value, where can get on one knee, and make another memory with the love of your life.
Capture The Moment With a Photographer
When your partner does not know the proposal is coming, it makes the moment unforgettable. You can hire a photographer to have a couple’s photo shoot one day. The photo shoot itself will form a lasting memory, but when you propose and catch the magic moment on camera, the surprise on your loved ones face will be priceless. You can also frame those shots and include them in a photo album. This celebration will live forever and will bring you happiness for years to come.
Keeping Your Proposal Simple and Romantic
When you know you want to propose to someone, you have already decided that they are the most important person in your life. Make sure they feel that way too by giving them a proposal they will never forget. Big proposals can be fun, but intimate proposals between you and the one you care about most are unforgettable.
