Wedding Proposal Ideas for Lasting Memories By David Lion Rattiner So you want to propose and are already planning out your wedding? But where and how do you do it? Offering a wedding proposal, no matter how you do it, is going to be one of the most romantic experiences of your life. Everybody always has a plan on when they are going to do it, but figuring out the where is never easy. Here are some ideas. The Beach Proposing on the beach may seem cliché, but then again, romance is supposed to be. It’s supposed to be a storybook experience, and the beach is one of the most romantic places to propose. There is just one very big danger when it comes to proposing on the beach and that is that there is

with a metal detector. The Restaurant This is another classic proposal location and the only thing you need to know about this is that the restaurant you choose should have meaning to your relationship. Maybe it’s the restaurant where you went on your first date. Or maybe it is the restaurant where you first kissed. Whatever it is, be sure to make the proposal at the END of the meal and then celebrate it with some cham-

sand everywhere and the chances of losing the engagement ring in the sand is a real possibility. When proposing at the beach, do not, under any circumstances, plan on transporting the ring anywhere except in your pocket and in a box. Don’t be clever and drop the ring in a glass of champagne at a beach picnic. The last story you want to be telling your grandkids is how you spent all night searching for the engagement ring

pagne or dessert. A Moving Vehicle, But Not a Car A romantic proposal can also be had on a motorcycle, a boat or even a plane, but whatever you do, don’t pull over on the side of the road and then say, “Want to get married?” A car is not a place for a proposal unless the circumstances call for it completely, and those circumstances almost never come up. The back of a motorcycle after a trip is romantic. Sailing or boating is romantic. Your Jeep Wrangler isn’t. On Vacation If you are planning a proposal while on vacation, congrats, you can’t really go wrong. The only trouble with proposing while on vacation is that, a lot of the time, couples really don’t get along while on vacation. There is a lot of stress while traveling that can cause arguments, but going to a romantic spot such as The Eiffel Tower in Paris or at the base of a volcano in Hawaii are excellent ideas. Another great vacation proposal idea is to have room service deliver the ring and propose. But keep in mind a proposal should always be a public event when possible, so make sure that room service doesn’t leave. Nothing is more romantic then having a crowd clap after you’ve proposed. It’s your movie that you’re writing in your life here, and this is a big scene. So be creative and don’t hold back.
