Creative & Unique Marriage Proposals

Unique marriage proposals don’t have to be unique to the world. They just need to be different than what normally goes on in your circle of friends and family. All it takes is a little originality and you’ll end up with a unique and creative way of proposing.

It’s An All in the Stars Proposal

This idea has got to be at the top of the list. It’s easy, anyone can do it from anywhere and it works every time.

You can name a star through the Online Star Registry (yes, a real star… and name it after her or after the both of you.) Grab a bottle of wine or champagne and take her outside on a starry night. Ask her to look up at the sky, present her with HER named star and an engagement ring… She’ll be over the moon we guarantee it!

An Artfully Sweet Proposal

Unique marriage proposals come in all shapes and sizes and this one is tailored for the art buff. It’s a picture perfect engagement idea.

Have them include a display card that reads, “This is the very ring used by you on that particular day to ask her to be your bride.” Sweet AND romantic. N’est-ce-pas?

A Surprise Twist For An Old Routine

If you’re looking for creative marriage proposals, try this one on for size. Buy a billboard on her route to work and ask her if she’ll marry you. (It’s really not as expensive as you think.)

Don’t forget to include both your name and hers so that she knows it’s from you. Be waiting for her in her parking space where she works with flowers, a diamond ring and the best excuse for her to call in sick that day. It’ll drive her crazy that you actually did that!

An Aquarium Adventure

Looking for something a little different when it comes to unique marriage proposals? How about this…

Diver holding up a sign that says will you marry meContact the aquarium or zoo in your area and see if during one of their diving shows they would be willing to hold up a sign that says “Will you Marry me?” Your girlfriend would never suspect it.

As they hold up the sign to the glass, get down on one knee and present her with the ring.

A Picnic Perfect Proposal

Set up the ideal picnic, red and white checked tablecloth, a picnic basket full of goodies and a chilled bottle of bubbly. Get a friend to watch over the spot while you go get your girl. They can make sure that no person or animal comes by before you arrive and starts nibbling on your food!

Take your lady love for a stroll on a route where you’ll stumble upon this romantic surprise. A park, mountain top or forest clearing are sure to make any heart swoon. Have a friend stick around (hiding in the bushes) to snap or film your big moment.

Or you can do as our reader Joe did. He took his love Ava on a hike, packed a picnic lunch and proposed. The rest as they say, is history.
