Sometimes it’s enough to say, “What do you think? Should we get married?” But sometimes we want an emotion-filled moment that will become a part of our family stories.
Andrea Woroch, often seen on Good Morning America and NBCs Today show, votes for sentiment. Her top four favourites:
- Have a scavenger hunt: Hide love notes throughout the home. It wouldn’t hurt to have scented candles lit for great ambience. The final hiding place will reveal the ring. A little bubbly to celebrate wouldn’t hurt!
- Create a game: Design a jigsaw puzzle that leads to the final question, “Will you marry me?”
- Plan a picnic: A picnic sets the scene. Have love songs playing. Have the ring, in its box, as part of the dessert display.
- Include the family: If you both are very close to your families, host a dinner that includes them and your very best friends.
Here are the Today’s Bride Favourites:
- Put the proposal in a fortune cookie and have it delivered at a Chinese restaurant.
- Create your own podcast proposal and put it onto her iPod.
- Ask your favourite restaurant to deliver a special dessert to the table. Have “Will you marry me” on top.
- Arrange for a limousine to pick her up when she’s expecting you. Have a big bouquet on the back seat with a proposal attached.
- Prepare a scrapbook with pictures of your relationship. The last page will have the proposal.
- Plan a weekend holiday. Phone ahead and ask for candles to be lit.
- Create a web page declaring your love and a proposal. Leave a clue with the web address written on it.
- Propose on the big screen at your local theatre. Be sure to get there in time for the ads and previews.
