Maybe you had a clever proposal planned before COVID-19, or perhaps spending all this time with your significant other has made you realize that you’re ready to be with them for the rest of your life.
In either case, you’re probably wondering if proposing at home is a good idea. After all, don’t most people imagine a proposal in a beautiful location, surrounded by friends and family (and sometimes strangers)?
With a little creativity, you can create a dream proposal from the comfort of home. In fact, you have some unique opportunities for a proposal they’ll be guaranteed to remember! Here are a few ideas:
Include Friends and Family Through Facetime or Zoom
Ring: The Alexandria
If including your loved ones is important to you, there are ways you can do so from afar. Consider setting up a Zoom or Facetime get-together and maybe tell your future fiance that your family or friends have something to announce (if you want them to be in on it). Then, as they’re patiently waiting for the others to pipe up, you can pull out the ring.
Ring: The Layla
Restaurant proposals are so last year. Put together your own romantic candlelit dinner with their favorite foods, a little wine, and soft music. Then, just when they think the evening can’t get better, make your move. If you have less than stellar cooking skills, you can order from a nice restaurant or ask someone close to you to put something together.
Time it With a Romcom
Ring: The Evermore set
Do you know what your partner’s favorite romantic movie or romcom is? Wouldn’t it be cute to wait for a sweet scene or a cinema proposal, and choose that moment to pull out the ring and create your own romantic moment? Even better, if the line is well-known and fitting to your own relationship, you can borrow your proposal speech from the actor and steal the show.
Backyard Fairy Garden
Ring: The I Do
If you have a backyard, big or small, try turning it into a magical wonderland fit for a romantic proposal. Hang fairy lights in the trees or bushes, set out some pots full of beautiful flowers, and if you’re really feeling bold, why not get an arbor to use as your proposal spot? Wait until it gets dark, then have your partner close their eyes while you lead them outside. Imagine their look of surprise when they see what you’ve created!
You could argue that home proposals are even better than public ones. After all, they’re intimate, sweet, and set the stage for how you plan to spend your life: together.
