5 Valentine’s Day Proposal Ideas from Capturemyholiday.
Valentine’s Day is one of the most popular days of the year to propose. It’s a day that’s already romantic and that you know you’ll be spending together. If you’re planning a Valentine’s Day proposal, check out these 10 ideas for making the moment special and memorable
1, Recreating a First Date or Special Moment
Tell your valentine not to make any plans for February 14th, and then make all the arrangements to recreate your first date (or another very special date—perhaps the one when you told each other “I love you” for the first time). Make reservations for the same restaurant, download the song that was playing on the radio, or pack a picnic of the foods and wines you had that day. Don’t forget to wear a similar outfit and book a professional photographer to capture the wonderful moment @capturemyholiday! In your own words, say that you’ve recreated the moment because it was the moment you met the person you’re going to marry (or knew that you wanted to spend the rest of your lives together), and then get down on one knee and pop the question!
2, On a Walk/Drive/Sail
Take some time to find the most romantic spot near you, and then lead your Valentine there in a leisurely way, talking about why you are in love and why your relationship is so special. When you’ve arrived at the right spot, take a moment to drink in the scenery, and say something like, “I wanted to bring you to a spot almost as beautiful as you are to ask you to spend the rest of your life with me. Will you marry me?” And don’t forget to capture the special moment with us
3, At a Restaurant
According to a wine merchants survey, restaurants are the second most popular place for proposals (at home is the first). It makes sense that restaurants are so popular, as you’ll have a host of people to help you make things perfect. If a restaurant is in your plans, start off by selecting someplace truly special—perhaps a usual favourite of yours or one with a magical ambiance. Secure those reservations early and while you’re doing so, ask to speak to someone about proposing that evening. They’ll be experts on the best and easiest way to do it at their particular location—whether it’s writing “Marry Me” on the dessert plate rim or going for a walk nearby to propose before returning for champagne and dessert. Just don’t hide the ring in food—you wouldn’t want it to be swallowed!
4, A Book With a Secret
Your intended will open his or her Valentine’s gift to reveal a book of love poetry. Most of the pages will be stuck together, but in the one place it opens, a slot will be cut out with the engagement ring inside.
5, The Language of Love
In a small blank book, write “Will you marry me?” in a different language on each page. Start with the language your sweetheart knows the least, and lead up to her/his native language. Here are a few examples, although you might choose to add more translations:
Spanish: Te Casas Conmigo?
Esperanto (to a woman): Ĉu vi edziniĝus kun mi? (to a man) Ĉu vi edziĝus kun mi?
Japanese: Watashito kekkon shite kuremasuka?
Finnish: Haluatko naida minut?
German: Willst Du mich heiraten?
Italian: lo sposerete?
French: Veux-tu m’épouser?
Portuguese: Queres casar comigo?
Whatever way you decide to ask, do it in a personal and romantic way and capture it.
