Creating a special moment ensures that you both have wonderful memories of this precious time for years to come. Need a bit of help? Well, here are some great proposal ideas to consider using. Use them and you are pretty much guaranteed an emphatic "YES" from the love of your life.

Message in a Bottle Proposal

If you are looking for romantic and unique proposal ideas, a message in a bottle proposal is a wonderful idea to try. It's simple, romantic and fun.

Preparation: Before you go get an antique bottle, use some parchment paper, and write your proposal on it (make sure you are original and romantic with the wording). Bury the bottle in the sand in an easy to locate spot.

Invite your love to go on a walk along the beach with you. Assuming all the preparation has been done, go walk with your love. Notice the bottle top sticking up and have her help you dig it up. Let her open the bottle and read your proposal. Romantically request her hand in marriage while you are kneeling on one knee with a ring in your hand. Know that you created a wonderful moment to remember together. She will have the bottle and parchment to highlight this special day in your lives.

Evening Picnic Dinner Proposal

Another of the many great proposal ideas out there is an evening picnic dinner proposal.

Preparation: Get a small generator and a lot of mini white lights. Locate a private, secluded spot for a picnic, such as a remote corner of a beach or park. Prepare the generator and decorate it with many white lights. Set up a small table and chairs, and have it ready for a picnic dinner.

Take her out to the dinner spot around sunset, sit her down at the table, and have a nice dinner and wine for her to eat. As the sun goes down, tell her you have a surprise for her. Brighten the area by turning on the generator and all the lights. It will take her breath away. Go to her and kneel with one knee and explain to her that she is the light in your world. Lovingly ask her to marry you.

Relaxing Getaway Proposal

More than likely your girlfriend is a busy woman. She could use a relaxing getaway and this is one of many great proposal ideas as well.

Preparation: decide on a place to go. Choose enjoyable activities that reduce stress and enable relaxation. (You will want to do this after you know she has a particular day off.)

Take her away for a day. Arrange for her to have a day off work, surprise her, and whisk her away. Ensure that she has as relaxing time as possible. Take her to a nice resort or hotel. Let her enjoy the day in the pool, sipping nice drinks, and feed her a delicious dinner. Bring her to the hot tub in the evening to relax. When she is relaxed and you see the stress start slipping away, get on one knee and ask her to marry you. Inform her that you would enjoy pampering her for the rest of your lives.

Seashell Proposal

If you live near the beach, the seashell proposal is one of the best proposal ideas to consider.

Preparation: a bucket for shells; a beach blanket or towel. If the beach doesn't have many shells, come prepared with lots of shells already in the bucket.

As you stroll along the beach, collect a bucket full of seashells. Have her help you pick out beautiful shells to place in your bucket. After you have collected many shells, have her sit on a blanket or towel. Use the sea shells to write your marriage proposal. When you are done, get her and bring her to see your work. As she sees what you have written, get down and propose, then give her the ring. Photograph your proposal made of seashells as a memento. Once she says "yes", collect the sea shells from the proposal so they can be used either in your wedding or for future events.


Choose a the perfect engagement ring for your proposal. Make the day extra special.
