Best marriage proposal ideas to steal
Forget Valentine’s Day, this guy made Halloween the most romantic holiday ever. A woman named Courtney told Glamour that she and her boyfriend had a pumpkin-carving contest. The boyfriend insisted they hide their pumpkins until they were done. When he turned his pumpkin around for the reveal, it read: “MARRY ME?”
He definitely won the contest.
A crappy proposal?
Sara Barron’s proposal story is cringe-worthy, but if you’re a fan of toilet humor, you’ll love it. She explains how her man popped the question:
“My boyfriend proposed by hiding the ring in the toilet,” Sara wrote at TheFrisky.com. “He got me to find it by pretending he’d taken the world’s biggest—”
—well, you get the idea. Upon finding the ring, Sara said yes, and the two are undoubtedly living in bathroom bliss.
A delicious proposal
This proposal will make your heart melt and your mouth water. Rachel Fox and her boyfriend, Ari Weitz, walked into their favorite ice cream shop. There was a delicious new mystery flavor that coincidentally included all of Rachel’s favorite things: caramel, pretzel, cookie dough and peanut butter. After the couple tasted the new flavor, the shop owner pointed to its name, written on the menu board:
“Rachel, Will You Marry Me?”
Fast food can be good for you
There’s something to be said for getting down on one knee the old fashioned way but, hey, a fried chicken sandwich works, too. A woman posted a Facebook photo of her boyfriend’s fast food proposal, which featured a diamond engagement ring sticking out of a sandwich bun.
“I said yes,” she revealed. But is that to the proposal or the sandwich?
You drive me crazy
Felix Flores had a thing for Ford Mustangs. He also felt strongly about his girlfriend, Addy Moreno. So he decided to combine his two loves by spelling out “WILL U MARRY ME” in Mustangs. The whole thing went down at San Antonio’s Latemodel Restoration, where the staff posted the photo on their Facebook page. They confirmed that Addy said, “yes!”
She got the memo
“Sex and the City” taught us that love and Post-its don’t mix, but a Denver man changed the game. Brett Beutler wrote, “I Love You” on 8,000 Post-it notes, and then covered the walls of his girlfriend’s apartment with them. Using different colored notes, he spelled out: “Will You Marry Me?”
His girlfriend said yes, and she described the proposal as both awesome and ridiculous.
Amber Rustad sat down to watch “Sons of Anarchy” with her boyfriend, Scott Bunkelman. During a commercial break, Amber was undoubtedly taken aback when she saw Scott featured in one of the ads. He’d hired a production company to ask: “Amber Lynn Rustad, will you marry me?”
The wedding is scheduled for this fall.
Under my umbrella
A woman took her girlfriend on a meticulously planned boat ride in Central Park. When they passed Bow Bridge, a group of colorful umbrellas spelled out: “Will You Marry Me?”
The happy couple was flattered by the attention but chose to remain anonymous.
In a world…
David Pogue, a columnist for the New York Times, created a fake movie trailer to propose to his girlfriend. It featured “a thinly veiled version” of their love story. He then took his girlfriend and their families to a real movie, where the fake trailer was played beforehand. After it was over, Pogue got down on one knee in front of the audience and asked for his love’s hand in marriage. She responded with an ecstatic, “yes!”
Rollercoaster of love
Lawrence Key had a little help from his friends, but he popped the question on a roller coaster ride. With his girlfriend Sophie in the front seat of a log chute, Key and his friends held up signs that spelled “Will you marry me?”
Sophie didn’t know what was happening behind her until she saw the souvenir photo afterward. She told the Daily Mail:
“When we went on the ride they told me to keep facing forward, but I thought nothing of it.”
