Finding the Perfect Romantic Marriage Proposal Idea

proposing with a ringRomantic marriage proposal ideas can consist of pretty much anything you want but you are the only one who knows her well enough to determine what constitutes the perfect romantic proposal idea. Here are a few inexpensive proposal ideas to consider:

    • Does the woman of your dreams like the outdoors? You could go hiking and take a break at a romantic scenic spot while you grab a stick and engrave your question in the sand or soil around you.
    • Is your partner grumpy in the morning? Make her smile and transform her morning into an unforgettable experience:
Spell out ‘Will you marry me’ with Alphabets cereal
  • Hide the ring in a box of chocolates, underneath the center piece.
  • Make your own fortune cookie using this recipe, and insert your proposal.
  • If the love of your life works in an office, write a resume to apply for the job of husband and place it in her briefcase. She will read your resume at work and hopefully give you a call straight away to proclaim her acceptance.
    Note: Waiting to receive that phone call may be very stressful and you should consider dropping by her office with an envelope instead. You would also get to see her reaction… Isn’t this half the pleasure of proposing?
  • If she likes jigsaw puzzles, have one custom-made with a romantic poem followed by ‘Will you marry me?’ Don’t forget to use her name and your name on the puzzle. You can then have it framed and keep it forever.
