If you’re in need of ideas for the best ways to propose, then read on. From understated at-home proposals to extravagant flash-mobs, here’s some of the best ways to propose to your partner.

Outdoor proposal ideas

For marriage proposal ideas that include an audience, head for the outdoors!

Flash Mob Proposal

Planning a flash mob proposal is a great way to share your proposal with others. Pick a mix of your favourite songs, hire a dance troop and invite your friends and family to take part in a routine that celebrates your love. 

Be prepared and plan ahead, ensure you have hired out an appropriate space for your flashmob to take place. Get a trusted friend to bring your soon-to-be fiance to the set location and remember to finish your dance routine on one knee!

Destination Proposal

For something super thoughtful and romantic, plan your perfect proposal abroad! Pop the question in front of the Eiffel Tower or the Great Pyramids! Just be sure to choose a location your partner loves and has dreamed of visiting forever. 

You can even choose an event or festival that will mean something to you as a couple and pop the question in the midst of the action. Pop the big question surrounded by hot air balloons in Cappadocia or under the northern lights in Iceland. Be sure to hire a photographer to capture the moment forever. 

Hire a Band!

If you and your partner enjoy music, then why not propose to your favourite song! Prepare a picnic in the park for you and your loved one and arrange for a band to pop up and play all your favourite songs. Get your friends and family to join in once the band arrives, so they can capture the action!

At-home proposal ideas

Whether you’re both working from home or would prefer to keep your proposal private, planning a proposal at home can be super romantic. 

Cook a Delicious Meal

Take the usual at home date nights up a notch and prepare a delicious meal for your partner. Pick out all of their favourite foods and prepare a tasting menu for you both to add a special touch to the evening. 

Take the time out to set the table, light some candles and make a romantic playlist. Pop the engagement ring out after dessert for the perfect end to a date night. 

Pet Proposal Ideas

Get your cat, dog or bunny rabbit in on the fun by involving them in your proposal. Tie your engagement ring (securely!) to a bow around your pet and wait until your partner notices! You can even get a customised outfit for your pet to wear with your big question written on it. 

Add some extra fanfare by having a trail of rose petals for your partner to follow and have your pet wait for them to enter the room with the ring tied around their collar. 

Photo Album Proposal

There’s no better way of displaying your love story than a photo album. Gather together photos of special shared memories and funny moments and put them in a photo album. Have your significant other flip through the pages, remembering your first date, favourite holiday and birthday celebrations. Pop the engagement ring in on the last page and they’ll get a lovely surprise. 

Unique Proposal Ideas

Your proposal story will be one to remember for years to come, so add a unique spin and make it a moment for you both to remember forever! 

Video Proposal

Live out your movie-star dreams by preparing a romantic video proposal. Edit together your home movies, pictures and memorable moments in a video that perfectly captures your relationship. Play the film for your partner and then present your engagement ring to them at the end.
