Making the decision to propose marriage is likely one of the most exciting and nerve-wracking moments of your life. But once you’ve made that decision, it’s time to come up with a creative and unique way to make the big ask. Here are six unique ideas for proposing that will make your partner swoon with excitement.

Plan a Scavenger Hunt

A scavenger hunt can be an incredibly fun and memorable way to propose. You can plan out stops in locations that have special significance to you as a couple, such as where you first met or had your first date. At each stop, include a clue to their final destination – the spot where you’ll finally pop the question!

Create a Custom Video

If you’re tech savvy and want to leave them speechless, try creating a custom video proposal. This could be a series of photos or videos from your relationship set to music, or even an original animation featuring the two of you!

Get Their Friends Involved

Another fun way to surprise your partner when proposing is having their friends involved. Have each friend give them a letter that spells out “Will you marry me?” Or have each person give them items they need (each item represents another word in the phrase).

Take Them To Their Dream Destination

If there is somewhere they’ve always dreamed of going but never made it happen yet — make it happen now! Surprise them by booking tickets without mentioning anything until closer to the departure date. When you reach that destination – take them somewhere romantic and make sure every detail is taken care of before that special moment.

Recreate Your First Date

For those who want something more classic but still unique, why not recreate your very first date? Whether it was dinner at your favorite restaurant or ice cream at the local ice cream shop – make sure all details are taken care of just like how it was back then! Pick out their favorite flowers too, just in case!

Include Your Pet at Home

Who doesn’t love including their fur child in all of life’s big moments? This allows time to sit down and truly express our feelings without being rushed or pressured by anything else around us. This is also a great social media opportunity to share the news with family and friends. Don’t forget some bubbles for poppin’ afterwards!

No matter what idea appeals most to you two as partners — simply ensure whatever proposal method chosen reflects both yours and theirs personality traits best so that this magical moment stays forever etched in both yours minds!
