Creative Outdoor Wedding Proposal Ideas

When two love birds meet, the chemistry is so real that love spills out of the jar more often. As time goes by, love tends to grow and the bonds become stronger. There comes a time when courtship period is over and the relationship needs to be taken to the next level. That’s the time to “break the ice”. According to the traditions, the man is expected to make a move and propose to his wife-to-be, although the millennial generation has changed the norms as nowadays a lady can make a marriage proposal to a man she truly loves.

Before you come up with a marriage proposal idea, you should interrogate your thoughts thoroughly and opt for the best among them.

When you know the type of social event that your spouse likes to attend or her hobby, things become much easier because all you need to do is to make arrangements with the event managers. Without her knowing about it, have a few t-shirts printed with the proposal message “will you marry me?” You can print about five if you are running under a tight budget. You can request friends to accompany you at the event so that they can get to wear branded t-shirts as a surprise to your future wife. You can suggest for a group photo and have the friends don on the t-shirt during the photo shoot.  Pictures speak louder! She will never forget.

2. Photograph proposal

As the photographer is capturing the moments in detail, go ahead and propose to your better half. Those photos will always rekindle the love flames as you age together.

This one is a true classic. For example, if she is the kind of girl who loves parting and clubbing, you should hire her favorite dancing crew or have the DJ play her favorite tunes. Get to the dance floor and get her dancing alongside the crew. At that moment when she is feeling like Cinderella, drop the bombshell and get down on one knee. Organize with the DJ to stop the playing record and the dance crew flashcards written, “Marry me!” This would turn out to be the party of her life.

7. On roller coaster

Visit an amusement park together. Ride a roller coaster that is capable of taking pictures. Make sure that your darling gets to seat at the front seat of the roller coaster. Before the ride starts, make sure that people behind you are supplied with poster cards that read, “Marry me”. Ask them to hold the cards in such a manner that the camera will capture the words right. Buy the photo immediately after the ride and give it as a present to your future wife as you go down on one knee. It’s a unique one and a wonderful proposal idea.
