Will you marry me?
by: The West Australian Wedding Guide



A marriage proposal is one of the most memorable and precious moments you will experience in your lifetime.
 
But today the huge expectations set by celebrities, movies and advertising has turned marriage proposals into big, expensive and over-the-top productions.
 
If you don’t have Kanye West’s budget, it’s ok, because we can help you with some creative, personal and oh so romantic ways to propose to the love of your life. 
Old-fashioned romance
- Take your sweetheart to the exact place where you had your first date.
- Have a romantic picnic at your favourite park and place the ring in the dessert.
- Send your girlfriend on a treasure hunt and when she gets to the last hint, the prize will be you on one knee.
- Go to her jewelry box and replace her everyday ring with the engagement ring.
- Slip the ring on her finger while she’s sleeping and wake her with breakfast in bed.
Holiday getaway
- Take her for a surprise walk on the beach and at the perfect spot spell out ‘marry me’, you could even hide the ring in a seashell.
- While on the plane, use the loudspeaker system (of course, run your plan by the flight attendants first) and propose at 35,000 feet.
   
Say it with words
- Take out an advert in the local paper.
- Spell out your proposal with refrigerator magnets.
- Create your own crossword puzzle and be prepared to help her work it out over breakfast.
- Play hangman and have the phrase be 'marry me'.
