Time of the marriage proposal

Location of the marriage proposal

By choosing a special place for the proposal, you show your partner how much they mean to you. For example, you could choose the location of your first date and recreate details such as flowers, decorations and food. Or you could book that long-awaited dream trip and pop the question there.

Add something personal

Nobody knows your partner as well as you do. Show it to them by singing or playing "your song" during the proposal. Or surprise them with someone they have not  seen for ages, like a distant relative or a good friend? Maybe there is a hidden meaning in the words of your proposal that only the two of you can understand?

The ultimate romantic gesture

Add an engraving to the engagement ring! An engraving could be something personal that symbolizes your relationship, such as an important date, your initials or a special quote. Make sure the ring style and stone match your partner's personal taste to ensure the proposal is even more meaningful.

Make sure you take your partner's wishes and preferences into account when preparing the proposal!

Walk on the beach at sunset

A romantic walk on the beach during sunset provides a picturesque backdrop against which you can get engaged to your better half. The sound of the waves, the gentle breeze and the warm colors of the sky create a romantic atmosphere that is perfect for popping the question. Choose a secluded part of the beach where you can stay in intimate togetherness and wait for the perfect moment as the sun slowly sinks into the horizon. Romantic music in the background makes the atmosphere even more beautiful!

In a winery

A winery is the perfect setting for a marriage proposal. The picturesque vineyards stretching out in front of you provide an idyllic backdrop for this intimate moment. Ideally, plan your visit to the winery on a quiet weekday to ensure your proposal is perfect. Enjoy a wine tasting and explore the different varieties together as you soak up the romantic atmosphere. After you've tasted a few wines and maybe even picked a favorite, use the moment to make your proposal. Maybe you can even enlist the help of the winery staff to find the perfect location or arrange a special bottle of wine with a personalized label that says "Will you marry me?".

At the place where you met

Another idea for a personalized marriage proposal is to make it at the place where you first crossed paths. A romantic gesture to celebrate your journey together! Whether it's the café where you first met, the park where you took your first walk or the university where you met, returning to this place can bring back nostalgic memories and provide a meaningful backdrop for the proposal. Spend time reliving old memories together and share your thoughts and feelings for each other before you take the big step and pop the question that will change your lives forever.

A journey together

Is there somewhere you've always dreamed of going, where you used to have a lot of fun or perhaps where you met? A trip together can be a wonderful opportunity to celebrate your love and experience this special moment in life together. Choose a destination that has meaning for you or that you've always wanted to explore. It could be an exotic beach destination, a romantic European city or an adventurous trekking trail with a picnic in the mountains. Plan the trip carefully to make sure everything goes perfectly. For example, reserve special activities or excursions that will bring you both joy and strengthen your bond. It's best to save the proposal for a particularly magical moment during your trip. Whether you do it on the beach at sunset, at a romantic viewpoint or in a historic castle, the location should be special and possibly have meaning for your relationship.

Dinner at your favorite restaurant

If you're both fans of dining out and enjoy spending time in fancy restaurants, choose one of your favorite restaurants or surprise your partner with a new restaurant experience. It could be an exclusive restaurant with live cooking, a candlelit dinner, a cosy family restaurant with traditional cuisine or a restaurant with international cuisine that has a special meaning for you, it's best to reserve a table in advance and think about how you can personalize the ambience to make the evening even more romantic. Perhaps you can ask for special decorations or have a private area reserved for you.

Marriage proposal at the cinema

If you are looking for an unusual marriage proposal, you could use the digital possibilities of projection technology in the movie theater. Buy a few minutes during the commercial break before the movie to have images of you and your partner projected or better yet, create a little movie. This movie could show your memories together, your love and special moments of your relationship. Let the movie end with the words: "Will you marry me?" or "Will you be my [partner] for life?" This surprise at the movies is guaranteed to be unforgettable and create a romantic atmosphere.

The classic way: simply get down on your knees

Sometimes it doesn't take a special gesture to pop the big question. As soon as the moment feels right or you are in a beautiful place, you can simply get down on one knee, open the box with the ring and ask the special question "Will you marry me?". The spontaneity of the situation and the emotions involved will make the engagement especially romantic and unforgettable.
