Marriage Proposal Ideas

You only get one chance to ask the big question: will you marry me? At Occasions, we’ve helped with countless proposals over the years. Visit in store to chat with our team about marriage proposal ideas, or see some of our favorite ways to propose below.

Keep it Simple

Propose in a park with friends and family a safe distance away. Once you’ve proposed, invite everyone to show up for an impromptu celebration.

Pick a spot for some summer stargazing (it’s even more perfect if there’s a meteor shower or lunar eclipse expected) and propose under the night sky.

On New Year’s Eve, sneak away to a romantic spot just before midnight and propose as the perfect start to the new year. Then celebrate with a kiss and plenty of champagne.

Something Scenic

Choose a place that’s meaningful to you both, such as a fountain, hotel rooftop, monument, or national park. When you arrive, ask someone nearby to take a picture of you together. Instead of posing, drop down on one knee.

Plan a romantic getaway for two. When you’re on the plane, use the loudspeaker system (with the help of the flight attendants, of course) and propose at 35,000 feet.

Pick the perfect spot to propose and have a photographer hide somewhere discreet. After your proposal, your photographer can snap some posed photos too.

Get Creative

Send your unsuspecting fiancé-to-be on a treasure hunt that ends with your proposal. Start with a clue at home (a handwritten note or text message) that begins a tour of your favorite spots all over town.

Hire a photographer to capture your proposal but tell your partner you’ve won a romantic couple’s photoshoot. Get dressed up, then propose mid-shoot. Follow it up with a romantic engagement session.

Get in touch with the stage manager of your favorite theater production and propose after the cast’s curtain call. Call ahead and see if you can have a special note or ad placement incorporated into the playbill for a unique keepsake.
