The Proposal

Jennifer Michael from shares some great advice on creating the best proposal

How to make it the most unforgettable and personal moment of your life.  The holidays can be the most romantic time to pop the question to your special someone. Surprise your sweetheart with our creative tips to make this the question they will never forget.


Make an Advent calendar, with each door she/he opens should reveal a sentimental memory or a reason you love her (or him).  Hide your proposal behind the door for December 25. If you’re Jewish, use this idea for Hanukkah gifts, with each day’s gift building up to the most important gift of all.

Puppy Love Attach plastic antlers and a red nose to your dog. Then put the ring on a ribbon around the dog’s neck and send the pooch to wake your beloved. If you have two dogs, attach a “Marry me” sign to the second and send them in together. She’ll never forget this Christmas morning! (And then include your dog in the wedding!).

Have a flair for the dramatic? Get in touch with the stage manager of an appropriately themed production and propose after the final curtain call.

Underwater loving couples, pay the divers at an aquarium to put on a proposal show inside their biggest fish tank. Give them handwritten signs that say “Will You Marry Me?” to hold up against the glass.

A little bit of Hollywood Ask your neighbourhood theatre to run an ad featuring your proposal and make sure you get there in time for the previews.

Techlovers Upload a video of your proposal on YouTube (tell her you have a hysterical home movie to show her).

Foodie Lovers Create a personalised fortune cookie with your own proposal message.

Playful Couple. Spell your proposal out in glow-in-the-dark star stickers on your ceiling. Get into bed, turn the lights off and wait for the inevitable gasp.

Bike riders, rent a Vespa scooter and invite your girlfriend for a ride, but remind her to be safe and wear a helmet. Put the ring in the helmet box and then zip around town to celebrate.

Cheesy summer idea. Write your proposal in sunscreen on your stomach, so that your tan will “stencil” the words.

Funny movie proposal? Steal from that famous Say Anything scene — park yourself outside her house with a stereo blaring your favourite tune and propose on the front lawn.

From years of experience in the wedding business we know that not all proposals go to plan. Important tips to ensure it all goes smoothly

Make sure you bring the ring and the emotion and personal significance. Keep it to yourself until the big day.

Plan ahead…that’s where Jennifer Michael can help you make your proposal the most special experience of your lives!
