It’s almost that time of year – Valentine’s Day is almost upon us! Traditionally, it’s a day when you’re hoping that maybe, just maybe, your man will pop the question.
Actually, we feel a bit for the men. Proposing to somebody, no matter how well you know them, has got to be nerve wracking, particularly if he gets down on one knee in public. He might however, be wanting to keep the whole event a bit more private – Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton at a very secluded safari lodge in Kenya.
However he does it, being asked to be somebody’s wife is certainly one of the most romantic things that is ever likely to happen to you.
So to get you thinking and dreaming, we’ve done a round up of the most romantic proposals we could find. If you’ve got any to add to our list, please let us know, either on our Facebook page or by leaving a comment below.
Live lip-dub proposal
This one took some planning. The boyfriend asked his girlfriend to his parents’ house for dinner, then set his brother up with a camera in the back of his car – this is one all-singing, all-dancing proposal, a complete shock to the girlfriend and it’s completely wonderful!
Proposal on arrival
Here’s a girl with one brave boyfriend. Theirs was a long-distance relationship with a lot of to-ing and fro-ing at airports. Finally he took the plunge, picked up his guitar and greeted his loved one with a proposal at the arrivals gate. Impressive!
A ‘corny’ proposal
We’re also loving this story. The boyfriend found a farmer and paid him to cut out a seven-acre marriage proposal in his field in the corn. He then flew his fiancée over the field so she could see the message below and proposed to her on the way to a romantic weekend break. Top marks for forward planning!
Favourite romantic movie moments
What’s our favourite romantic moment from the silver screen? It’s probably got to be from the iconic film ‘When Harry Met Sally’. We love the part when he’s asking Sally to marry him and he says, ‘When you realise you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.’ Aaah.
One thing’s for sure. If he proposes to you on Valentine’s Day, you’ll be swept off your feet however he does it. And when you’re planning your wedding we’re here to help you, every step of the way.
