Thinking about proposing at home? Here is how you can make it truly special...
For many of us, the lockdown and the fact that it has meant that we need to stay home, has ruined some pretty important plans. Not only are weddings being postponed, but events are being cancelled and holidays are in question.
One thing that has been put on hold for many people is their plans to propose to their partner. Many people want to go to a special place, a beach, a forest or perhaps a city that means something to them and that will create lasting memories.
If this is true for you then you have two choices. Either you postpone proposing until a time when things have “returned to normal” whatever that normal is going to be. Or, you propose at home.
Worried that proposing at home is going to be no-where near as special as your original plans? Well, here are some of the things that you can do to make sure that you can pop the question safely, without worrying that the entire moment will be ruined.
Make a home cinema
If you both love snuggling up and watching a movie, then a great idea for you could be to make a home cinema. This doesn’t have to be anything big and elaborate; candles, popcorn and of course your very own cinema tickets too. Wait until your favourite part of the movie, or if it is one you haven’t watched before, when you feel the time is right and get down on one knee.
Propose at breakfast
Who doesn’t love breakfast in bed? Well, there is one way that you can make this tasty treat even better. By using it as your chance to propose. Make your partner their favourite breakfast and, right in the heart of the tray, place the ring. You could get even more creative with this particular approach and have a mug printed that asks “will you marry me?”
Create a treasure hunt
To really keep the suspense going, one great way to propose is to create a treasure hunt for your partner to follow. This will involve some planning and writing of clues and you will need to make sure that they are out of the house for a while so that you can set it up. However, whilst this may take a little more time, we really do think that this is a lovely way to ask that all important question.
If you are happy to involve your friends and family in your proposal, then why not create an online proposal video? Not only is this great fun for everyone, but it has real sentimental value too and it is something that you can treasure for years to come.
As you can see, being at home doesn't mean that your dreams of a special proposal is ruined. It just means that you need to be a little more creative in how you ask your question and how you make sure it is special for you both.
