Wedding Proposal Ideas

Proposing to the love of your life is an exciting and wonderful time in any couple’s journey. A marriage proposal is not only popping the question, but it’s also creating a beautiful memory that you’ll both cherish forever. So here are a few ideas to help you plan a romantic and unique marriage proposal that will make your special moment unforgettable.

Return to your first date spot

Going back to the restaurant, movie theatre or location where you first met is a classic way to propose. It’s specific to your relationship and shows you still remember how you felt in that moment. It’s a nice way to reflect on how far your relationship has come since your first date and look forward to the possibilities in your future.

Rent a Romantic Air BNB or Cottage

If you’re looking for a more private and intimate proposal, rent a cabin, cottage or spot on the water. Stop by before you and your partner arrive to set up rose petals, champagne or a romantic letter expressing your love. Or see if the host of the property can arrange some of these for you so you don’t ruin the surprise! Then you get to enjoy a romantic evening or weekend just the two of you and celebrate your engagement.

Return to a Favourite Spot

Is there a trip you’ve taken, a restaurant you’ve been to, or a family cottage where the two of you share wonderful memories? Even if you’ve only been there once, this place stands out in your mind because you had the best time together. Plan a trip back to where you stayed or make a reservation at that restaurant. Reminisce on those happy memories you shared there and think about all of the new memories you’ll get to create together when you’re married.

Make a Video

A proposal video is a heartfelt and personal way to propose to your love. You can showcase your journey as a couple, express all the reasons you love them, and then propose at the end of the video. It’s a beautiful way to summarize all of your feelings and show your commitment to your partner. This also gives you the ability to thoroughly plan out what you’re going to say, and have a polished proposal. You can film as many takes as you want, and choose your favourite proposal! Plus your loved one gets to keep the video forever and can rewatch it as many times as they want.

Plan A Favourite Activity

Do you and your partner love hiking, travelling, camping, trying new lunch spots, attending sporting events, or hanging out in city parks? Why not make your favourite activity even more special by proposing? Plan to go for a hike on a day that’s less busy and propose when you reach the top. If you’ve planned a trip, secretly book into a romantic hotel or contact one of your accommodations ahead of time to arrange for chocolates or decorations. Or pack a nice picnic and propose in a beautiful park. No matter what your favourite activity is, you can find a way to incorporate a proposal. It makes the proposal unique to your relationship and shows you love doing the same things and can continue these shared interests for the rest of your life.

A Treasure Hunt

A treasure hunt proposal is a fun and creative way to propose. You can hide clues around your partner’s house or town and lead them to the final destination where you’re waiting to propose. The hints and stops can be based on special memories you’ve shared, your partner's favourite foods and inside jokes you have. It’s a great way to show how much effort and thought you’ve put into the proposal.

Hire a Cinematographer

No matter how you choose to propose, hiring a wedding cinematographer to capture the moment is a great way to look back on this memory. Cinematographers can set up hidden cameras so the proposal can be private and once the question has been popped, they can capture some romantic moments of the two of you. Then wrap it all up in a professionally edited video so you can remember it forever!

These are just a few ideas of how you can propose to your partner but no matter what you choose, it’s going to be the best proposal because it’s personalized and coming from your heart!
