Who doesn’t love a good time at the Renaissance Fair? The only thing that could make it better would probably be a proposal that made the storybooks jealous. But if you’re going to do pull it off, you’re going to have to do it right.
1. Have it be part of the show
This famous performers Don Juan and Miguel blind fold this chick to not only whip the end of a twig in her mouth, but also to let her prince get into the perfect proposing position. She is one happy fairy.
2. Make her endure a super long “woo”
Yes, this is a thing. Apparently you can contact the Renaissance Faire and have them work you into an act where some actors are teaching the audience how to do a proper “woo” for the ladies. They’ll pick a lady from the audience (your lady) have her stand up there for a good long while as actors try different approaches, when finally at the end, you get to woo her yourself. Check out these two proposals that did just that.
Skip ahead to minute 4:45 if you want to go straight to this fantastic proposal.
Skip ahead to minute 5:30 if you want to watch all the actors “woo” or to 11:30 if you don’t want to see the whole “woo and only the proposal.
3. Get into character
Some people REALLY get into the Ren Faire– like head-to-toe travelling gypsies who follow it across the country. If you’re one of those, go all out, wear the costume, and write a speech in the flowery tongue of ye old romance. If she’s the right girl, she’ll swoon.
