Thinking of a marriage proposal idea can be nerve-wracking. But thanks to social media constantly featuring over-the-top and extreme proposals, a lot of people find themselves wondering what they can do to propose in a way that won’t be disappointing to their partners?
When planning your marriage proposal you really have two choices; you can do something super original and creative that no one else has done before, or you could consider what is trending and use that as inspiration for the big day.
We’ve put together a list of the top trends in the world of marriage proposals to help inspire the perfect proposal idea in you.
A trend that is really taken off is to hire a proposal photographer or videographer to capture your marriage proposal but not reveal it until the actual wedding. So basically, your partner never knows that someone is capturing the proposal, but on your wedding day, you reveal the whole thing to them.
Another option is to hire a secret proposal photographer and reveal this amazing surprise right after you pop up the question. The great thing about these scenarios is that you can have a romantic engagement photo session right after the proposal.
The recent article at NEWS.com begs the question, “Why are men spending tens of thousands on a marriage proposal.” The answer? Because they want to say that they gave their partner the ultimate dream marriage proposal. And again, thanks to social media, they know everyone is going to see it.
Flash Mobs are slowly losing their time in the spotlight, but people are constantly trying to find a new type of flash mob. Think real actors filling a restaurant and all standing up one by one reciting a poem. Or perhaps a group of people spontaneously singing at the same time. It is all about the action!
The Intentional Viral
It used to be that someone would propose in an epic way and it just went viral. But now the trend is intentionally planning a proposal with the purpose of going viral. So they actually will choose to propose in a manner they think will get a million likes!
Gone are the days when it is just you, your partner, and a nice restaurant where you drop to your knee. Now people are including their friends and families in the mix. This really drives up your proposal price when you are paying for dessert and beverages for the whole group, but can be a nice touch if your partner is super into the family.
Hiring a Proposal Planner
Some people are opting to hire professionals to help them plan their marriage proposal. This idea is common for people that don’t have the time to plan all of the elaborate proposal ideas they have running around in their heads. It is also seen with clients who are proposing in cities that they do not reside.
Hopefully these proposal trends have inspired some ideas in your mind that you can use for your own engagement. Just remember to think about what your partner would like, not just what you think would be cool to others. Then, your proposal day will be perfect!
