Creative Marriage Proposal Ideas for Valentine’s Day
Chocolate and roses are the go-to gifts for your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day, but if you are planning on making February 14 a red-letter date on the calendar, adding an engagement ring (along with your declaration of undying love) will sweep your honey off her feet. Make the occasion of a marriage proposal unforgettable with these three ideas to get your creative juices flowing when making plans for the most romantic day of the year.
One of the most unique proposals we’ve heard of was engineered by the creative director (go figure) of an advertising agency. The couple had planned a Valentine’s Day trip to a Caribbean island, and planned to go scuba diving near their hotel. The day before his proposal, he snuck away to “plant” the ring box – safely ensconced in a baggie – under a bright, distinct piece of coral on the ocean floor. The next day, when they were exploring the deep together, she spied the coral and he motioned for her to pick it up for the big reveal. (Fortunately, it was still there!) While you don’t have to go to the lengths this prospective groom went to impress his bride-to-be, you can come up with your own game of hide-and-seek the ring.
Be a Tease
This idea accomplishes two things – it incorporates the element of surprise, and also ensures your intended approves of the ring. Come to F. Silverman in advance of the big day, preselecting a few rings you think your beloved might like, based on her style. Let our staff in on your choices and plan to return and pop the question on the spot (confirming when you’ll be back). Invite your sweetheart to lunch and shopping, and casually stroll by the store, suggesting you go in “just to look.” Once she picks a favorite ring, ask for her hand in marriage – for real.
Countdown to Love Liftoff
Why not spread the love over the 14 days leading up to Valentine’s Day? “Reward” your partner with a colorful coupon book you personally designed on the 1st day of the month (there are many free design software programs on the web, or, you could enlist a tech-savvy friend to help). Ideas for heart-inspired coupons could include a massage from you, a special home-cooked meal, or silky pajamas. The fourteenth and final reward will be a “mystery gift.” When she comes to redeem it, present it wrapped in a big box, or even a succession of boxes-inside-boxes, to prolong the moment of discovery.
A Jeweler For Life
Choosing the right engagement ring is as important as the delivery of the proposal, so you should consult a jeweler with a reputation as flawless as the stone itself. For more than 20 years, F. Silverman Jewelers has been serving the residents of Bergen County, New Jersey and surrounding areas, providing extraordinary engagement rings at affordable prices.
