How to propose the love of your life

Have you planned for how to propose your lover? From skywriting to chilling by the beach proposal, there are a lot of things to take inspiration from and as usual, we’ve got your back!

So here’s a list of proposals for you to take some inspiration from:

At-Home Proposals

1) Go Back to the Basics

Why not go for a simple, yet insanely romantic dinner at home? You could cook her favourite dish (or if you’re as terrible a chef as me), set up the mood with candles, roses, a nice bottle of wine, and some romantic music and straight up propose. This is something that can never go wrong.

2) Let Candles do the Talking

Another easy yet beautiful proposal: Make a candle-lit path and turn off the lights which would lead to a ring of candles and rose petals circling the engagement ring. Extra points for including a cake, champagne, and a cute framed picture of you both.

3) Propose in Her Room

When it rings in your mind, how to propose her, what better than her own room. You can decorate her room with flowers, balloons, lights and pictures of you both on the wall. Of course, you would have to include one of her family members in the plan so you can do all of this while she’s gone out and get some help from that person. This way, when she comes back home after a tiring day at work, she'll have the most wonderful surprise as she wouldn’t have expected this at all.

4) Scavenger Hunting!

Make the proposal exciting by sending your soon-to-be-fiancé on a treasure hunt that ends with your proposal. Hide the ring somewhere in the house and then set up the hunt with clues along the way for her to find. Each clue can have a small gift attached to it. You can get as creative as you like with the clues.

5) Light it Out

Use outdoor string lights to write out, "Will you marry me?" on the front of your house. Station your friends and family secretly inside and come up with an excuse to linger out front. Then have someone flip the switch to reveal the message.

3) Stars and Skies

There’s something extremely and insanely romantic about lying down and watching the stars with the person you love. So for a really romantic proposal, take her out on a clear night on a rooftop and propose under the stars. You can do all kinds of decoration up there as you like. So just lie down, watch the stars together, get all cozy, and pop out the big question. Another simple yet breathtaking way, no?

If there's a lunar eclipse or meteor shower predicted, it makes it all the more special.
