Whether you’ve been with your partner for aeons or a couple of months, popping THE question can be nail-biting. After all, it is one such story that remains the talk of the town forever – talk about pressure! Moreover, as beautiful as the idea is, you have to ensure that the proposal is impressive and memorable. If all those jitters are taking over you, we’ve got your back. Use any of these top 9 adorable ways to propose on Valentine’s Day that will definitely get you a big YES!
Knock your sweetheart’s socks off with an intimate romantic dinner, better a candlelight one. While having dinner, propose a toast and pop the question right away. Your partner wouldn’t forget the moment. Top up the moment with a thoughtful and unique Valentine’s Day gift.
Written on the Stars
Remember when Ross tells the made-up story of how he proposed to Rachel – in the planetarium, with lilies, Fred Astaire over the sound and written in the stars ‘Will you marry me?’ Take hints from the king of proposals and see your sweetheart cry happy tears.
Involve your Pet in your Plan
Attach the engagement ring to your pet’s collar, dress it up in a customised t-shirt with text like ‘Will you marry Dad/Mom?’ or loosely hang a card from your pet’s neck. If your partner has been longing for a pet, surprise her/him with a new pet as a Valentine’s Day gift for her/him and pop the question too. You can expect exciting squeals and a big YES!
Re-enact their Favourite Movie Proposal
An ultimate way that will get you a big ‘Oh, My God… Yes’! Propose to your significant other by taking a cue from their favourite movie. Pretty woman, A star is born, Notebook and A walk to remember are some of the movies that have set benchmarks when it comes to the ideal way to propose on Valentine’s Day.
Simple and Sweet
Deck up your house with fairy lights, pictures of you two (leave a note behind each photo) and set up a romantic candlelight dinner on the balcony or terrace. Go overboard with a rose petals aisle leading to the engagement ring box. Have their favourite song playing in the background and record their reaction while they are awestruck.
Why not! Another way to propose on Valentine’s Day, which is worth remembering, is to do it during a trip. It doesn’t have to be necessarily somewhere far. A weekend trip to a nearby city will also work. In case you are looking for someplace near, know where to celebrate Valentine’s Day in Dubai and witness love in the air – literally!
Sing a Love Song
Another way to express your love and propose your valentine is via a love song. You can either sing them their favourite song or even best, write a song especially for them. If you are not comfortable with singing yourself, you may even get a song you wrote, recorded professionally.
Breakfast in Bed
Serve your partner their usual breakfast but with some secret ingredients. Switch their regular pancakes with heart-shaped pancakes. Decorate the bed tray table with a vase of Valentine’s Day flowers, a romantic card on one side and their favourite treats. Give them their regular tea or coffee in a mug with ‘Marry me?’ at the bottom so they have a surprise right after they finish.
Ring in Her Favourite Book
Everyone has a favourite author or book series they read almost every day. Use this to your advantage by hollowing that book a bit, putting the ring inside and tricking them into reading it. The look on their face will be worth everything! Make sure you keep another copy of the book ready.
Take your partner’s personality into account and use any of the above ways to propose on Valentine’s Day.
