Earth Day Proposal Ideas

Earth Day is April 22nd and there’s nothing like being enviromental for your proposal. If you aren’t always out and about helping the earth and minimizing your carbon footprint, you’re in luck. I have some ideas for you that are environmentally sound and romantic for your proposal!

1. Plant a tree. Yes, I’m serious. Join a group or plant one in your yard (if you own your house or are able to at your rental). Carve your names into the tree or a stone to put next to the tree, and then tell her you can’t wait to see the tree grow just like your love– and how you want to be old and gray together when the tree can shade you. That’s your cue to get on one knee!

2. Farmer’s Market. There’s nothing like supporting local produce to make you feel more Earth-friendly. Dress up and go buy your fruits, veggies, flowers– whatever you may need for a fun day out in nature. After you’ve finished all your shopping, find a cute spot to try some samples and pucker up the courage to pull out that ring!

3. Use your bikes. Take the day to use only your bikes to get around. Go to the park, ride to a close store– use it to give you exercise and to reduce pollution/oil and gas usage for a day! Prep a picnic and ride your bikes to a cozy spot, and then take the time to relax, talk about your love, and propose!

4. Clean up. While wearing gloves and some sort of sanitation gear may not be viewed as romantic, spend your day doing some good and offering to help clean up local parks/roads/wherever you may be needed. After you’ve showered from your hard days work, go somewhere local for a bite to eat and propose!

Robert Pattinson and FKA twigs Engaged!

If you didn’t hear T-Pain on April Fools Day tell Vulture this his pal had proposed to FKA Twigs, then take it back as a joke, then you’re not alone. However, a source has finally confirmed that the two are actually engaged!

This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, since near the end of 2014 Pattinson gave Twigs a promise ring and even had an I-want-to-marry-you dinner with their closest friends. He also took her home for the holidays to meet his parents, who apparently gave their stamp of approval. The couple also moved in together just last month.

Now, if we could just get a glimpse of the shiny new ring Pattinson more than likely gave twigs, that would be great!

May Day Proposal Ideas

It’s hard enough to believe it’s April, but that means May Day is just around the corner…er…month. Whether you celebrate this wonderful day or not, it’s a fun time to get creative with your proposal. Here are a few ideas!

1. Decorate with flowers. While she’s at work or early in the morning, surprise her by decorating the house with flowers. Surprise her with a planter in front, vases in every room, and a basket full of freshly-picked blooms. May Day was originally celebrated to honor the goddess of fruit and flowers, so even throw in a fruit basket if you wish! When she comes home, or wakes up, she’ll feel fresh and renewed– the perfect time for you to be waiting (surrounded by petals, of course) with the ring and proposal!

2. Host a bonfire. Bring in the month with friends, family, and a bonfire (if it’s not too hot). Have your first cookout and when the time is right, call everyone’s attention (or steal her away) and ask her to marry you. You could enhance the moment by having a crown/wreath of flowers ready for her to wear as the “May Day Queen” for the moment.

3. May Day Basket. My favorite May Day tradition is dropping a basket on the doorstep, ringing the doorbell, and running away. However, if you’re going to propose, you may want to stick around. Fill the basket with flowers or flower petals and place the ring box on top, or dangle the ring on a ribbon from the handle. Hide momentarily until you know she’s got the basket, and then come out and drop to one knee.

If these aren’t for you, you can always find a way to erect a maypole in your backyard and do some dancing before you propose!

Insta Proposal- An Instagram Relationship

Scott and Ryan connected through Instagram, so of course when Ryan decided to propose– he had to use the app to do it. But he didn’t do it alone. He involved quite a few friends and family in on the game to make it even more fun. I mean, an Instagram scavenger hunt of sorts… what can beat that?

After a well-planned day of fun for Scott, Ryan set up a romantic walk at home for him. He enters the house to a path lit by lights and candles, scattered with their dated Instagram pictures (around 4:07). Scott very diligently takes his time, looking at everything Ryan has set up for him. But, of course, as he nears the backyard– he’s more interested on seeing Ryan out there in a suit, surrounded by rose petals, more pictures, and beautiful lights. Ryan gets down on knee knee around 4:55, and Scott says “absolutely.” I mean, could he really say anything else?

In the end, the friends and family that were involved during the day are at the house for a celebration. Everyone, take note. This is the way to propose.

Princess Proposal Ideas

Every girl has that side of her that wants the glass slipper deal. If your girlfriend’s princess side is more obvious than others, here are three ideas on how to give her a princess-worthy proposal.

1. Horse (and carriage) Ride. Whether you’re on a noble stead or being lead by one, there’s nothing more romantic than going for a ride with the four-legged friends. Take her riding on the beach, or on a trail. Or, if you live somewhere you can get a horse and carriage or horse and buggy ride, do that! When the time is right, you can pull out the ring.

2. Glass Slipper. You can find the real deal or her version of a “glass slipper” to propose. Find her perfect pair of shoes and tell her even Cinderella didn’t have as good of taste. Put the ring inside the shoe. Just remember, if it’s see-through, she’ll be eying that before she notices the new kicks.

3. May I have this dance? Whether you set up the “ball” in her living room or her favorite spot, give her a reason to get the royal treatment and dress up. Invite her friends and family (if this isn’t a previously-planned event, like a military ball) and surprise her with the night of her life. Not only will she feel like a princess, but she’ll have the ring and prince to go along with it.

Pilot Proposal on Alaskan Airlines

On a typical flight from Washington state to Alaska, the pilot came on over the loud speaker and decided to tell everyone flying about how he met the girl of his dreams.

Funny twist in the story, is how his mom first told him about the amazing flight attendant she met when she was flying to visit her son. Though he thought he was doing fine on his own, he had no idea that three months later he would end up meeting and asking out that  same flight attendant.

Two years later, she’s working on the same plane her boyfriend is flying. He said their relationship started at 34,000 feet, so he wanted to continue it at 34,000 feet. Now, that’s a line!

Adorable Proposal with Two Daughters

Scott and Caitlin have been together for six years. With that, they’ve had two girls together. Yet, as Scott’s signs said, something was “missing.” Caitlin/Mommy still didn’t have the last name as her partner and two girls. So Scott decided it was about time for that to change.

This is so amazing, because whether you’re getting married to the father of your children or another, it makes it so special for him to involve them in the proposal. These two little girls are so adorable with the signs and facial expressions. They may not understand completely what’s going on, but they know it’s something important and special they get to be a part of.

This totally made me cry. And though you don’t get to see it, Caitlin/Mommy did say “yes!”

Proposing to a Tea Lover

Sure, there’s plenty of stuff out there for coffee addicts and appreciators, but what about tea? For those of you who may be dating a gal who loves a strong cuppa in the morning (or afternoon, or evening), here are some proposal ideas.

1. Tea Tasting. Find a local tea-room or tea shop that will allow you to do some taste-testing of their teas. Plant a tea cup for the last one that ends up being empty, but has “Will You Marry Me?” written inside of it.

2. Formal Tea Set. Buy her first set of real teacups and teapot (with help or approval or memory) and present her with a teatime treat. Include macaroons or fingerfoods (cakes, lemon squares–whatever she fancies). The rest is up to you. You could present the ring on the tray, or a card full of mushy-gushy words that allow you time to get on one knee. Whatever you desire, this is a wonderful presentation for a proposal.

3. Tea Basket. Go to a tea shop or store that has varieties of tea– whether she prefers organic, bags, loose leaf… the possibilities are endless. Throw in some yummy tea-specific snacks (tea biscuits, crumpets, etc.) and a good book or DVD you know she’s been dying to get. Put the ring in there, or present the basket and wait until she’s done swooning over the before you propose!

Surprise, Unbelievable Proposal with a “Whisper Challenge”

Kevin wanted to propose to his girlfriend of five years, Marie. The two have been through thick and thin together, and have a young son– so Kevin didn’t want to do just anything. At first he thought he’d just google proposals and do something that someone else had already done, but he decided that just wasn’t his style. When he was looking for ideas, he came across a “whisper challenge” and decided to bring his girlfriend in on it as part of his YouTube channel, unknowingly surprising her with a real proposal.

After a few rounds of playing loud music and guessing what the other person is saying, Kevin says, “Together Forever.” When Marie guesses the right answer (around 6:06 of the video), Kevin says he won. Marie is horribly confused, since she guessed the right answer– but Kevin tells her, “You didn’t answer the question.” He then pulls out a beautiful princess-cut engagement ring.

My favorite part of this proposal is it takes Marie a good two minutes to believe that Kevin is proposing. She even looks around, trying to see if someone is going to jump out and tell her it’s a prank. She keeps asking him over and over if it’s a prank, and it isn’t until the very end of the video (8:30)  where we get another clip of her and she’s crying– finally realizing that it’s for real.

Family Proposal Ideas

In this day and age, there’s a great chance that you have kids, or your significant other has kids. If this is the case, and you’re about to take the leap to become one, big, happy family– you may want to remember that the proposal doesn’t just involve you and your love, but your kids as well. So how do you bring them in on the proposal? Here are three ideas.

1. Go on a family vacation. Take a trip with all parties involved, respecting room boundaries (unless you’re already living together, of course), and let everyone get to know one another while spending some good quality time together. When the opportunity presents itself, talk to the kids about the proposal and what it would mean before you actually propose. After all, you have to be committed to making it all work– not just with your significant other, but with the kids as well.

2. Take the kids out. If they kids belong to your lady, offer to take them out for a day of fun. Use this opportunity to tell them how much your mom means to you, and that you’re thinking of proposing and ask what they think. If they’re your kids, this still applies. Try to present an opportunity that they can spend quality time with your s/o to make sure they’re good with the situation. You CAN get married even if the kids aren’t ok with it, but the more people you have on board– the easier it’s going to be.

3. Involve them in the proposal. Bringing the family together through marriage is a big deal, so involve the kids in the proposal. It will make it even more special, and it will let them know that they won’t be forgotten or lost in the mix as things change.
