Proposal Ideas: 13 Ultimate ideas that will make her say yes
The 13 most romantic proposal ideas that will make her say Yes!
So you have dated her long enough, and you are head over heels in love with her. The two of you have met each other’s families and have their nod of approval. Now, all you want to do is buy the ring and propose to her.
Planning the perfect proposal can be stressful, especially when you want it to be perfect and make it a moment she cherishes forever.
I have made a list of 13 best proposal ideas for you that will make her scream. Yes, yes, yes, in joy!
In case you have not, I highly recommend that you speak to the bride’s father and seek his blessings for the marital union. It’s a good idea to let him in on the plan and let your lady’s old man know that you plan on proposing his daughter.
I know it’s a big day for you, and you want everything to be just perfect and memorable. Before you go ahead and pop the question, here is a couple of things to keep in mind.
Things to keep in mind when you are popping the question
No one knows her as you do. You need to decide if she is someone who would like a grand gesture or something very private.
In case you have any doubts, don’t hesitate to meet her BFF or a family member that she is really close to and ask them. In a nutshell, you don’t want to overwhelm someone who is a private person with a grand romantic gesture or vice versa.
Tip: It’s always a good idea to hire a photographer or videographer on standby or a common friend who can film and shoot this moment lurking from the shadows.

Best proposal ideas ever
Propose with Marry me sign + flowers, some candles and wine
This is one of my favourite proposal ideas, it has worked so wonderfully for so many of my friends and readers that I would classify it as the absolute ‘must-try’ The beauty of the idea is that you can club this proposal idea with any of the other proposal ideas and make it a wow and memorable experience for her. I don’t think it needs more elaboration. The pictures are pretty self-explanatory.
Sweep her off her feet proposal idea
Make it grand. Pick a special day such as her birthday, Valentine’s Day, the day that you moved in together, basically any day that is special for the two of you.
You want to go to the fanciest restaurant in town or your favourite upscale restaurant. Bring her, her favourite flowers, say that you wish to make this date really special.
Get a vintage car or a limousine to pick the two of you up. If the restaurant does not have a live band, request them to let you bring your artist.
Go to the restaurant a couple of days before the actual date and reserve a table, tell them your plan and request to speak to your server to let him on the plan. Once you have done all of the above, you are all set.
Now pick and choose if you want to put the ring in her champagne glass or have it on top of her favourite dessert.
Treasure Hunt Proposal Idea
Every couple has their favourite spots, on top of a mountain, or a little hike in the woods. Leave her relevant clues to find you. Have a clue at each spot along with a little goodie or a nicely framed picture of the two of you from that spot waiting for her. You may also ask for a friend or family member to help her out with the clues.
Be sure to deck up the final spot where your partner meets you with candles, flowers, balloons and more.
Irresistible cuties for the proposal idea
Are the two of your dog or animal lovers? Who can really resist these cute things?
Use your pet or get a puppy that she would totally adore, and it also conveys the message for you. You can be rest assured she would squeal over their cuteness and be in awe of this cute yet thoughtful proposal forever.
A walk down memory lane Proposal
Keep it casual. Pour her a nice wine, put on her favourite music. Ask her to have a look at the treasure trove of pictures that you found browsing photos on the phone. Tell her you decided to print them all as they reminded you of so many sweet memories together.
Put a note behind each picture and be sure to take her for a walk down the memory lane before she reaches the final photo with the question. The last picture is your cue to get down on your knee and bring out the ring.
Holiday proposal idea
Plan a romantic getaway, something that symbolises love — for example, the Taj Mahal in Agra or Venice in Italy.
You can choose to propose to her on the way to the airport, in the flight or on your first dinner date. If you plan to do this once you are at your destination, be sure to plan your dinner well in advance and write to your restaurant requesting for the arrangements that you require.

Proposal on a hot air balloon
Be sure that your better half is not scared of heights, take her for a hot air ballooning ride. Make sure that your pilot knows about the plan and is in on it. The pilot would be able to tell you when is the most scenic view to go down on your knees and pop the question.
Propose to her on top of Burj Khalifa
Burj Khalifa offers two levels to tourist to enjoy a panoramic view of Dubai. The 125th floor and 148th floor. No doubt the 148th floor comes at a premium, but it is totally worth it. 148th floor is less crowded, and you will get more space for the two of you to cherish the moment. Once again, do not forget to let the staff in on your plan.
Proposal at a fantastic rooftop with a view – Four seasons Mumbai & Amar Vilas Agra
You can pretty much propose your bae at any beautiful rooftop with a view. A few great options that come to my mind immediately are the Sky Bar at Four Seasons Hotel Mumbai and The Bar restaurant at Amar Vilas Agra which offers one of the best views of the Taj Mahal.
Propose to her in the middle of the desert
You can choose the sand dunes in Dubai & Abu Dhabi and propose to her in the during a desert safari. You can also consider proposing to her during the evening festivities, where you quietly sneak out with her to a secluded spot which is decked up with candles and petals and go down on your knees to ask her hand in marriage.
In India, the locations that I recommend for this are the Sand Dunes of Jaisalmer, Dechu and Khimsar. If you are staying at hotels like Suryagarh Jaisalmer, Samsara Dechu, Desert Resort Manvar or Khimsar Fort & Palace and let them in on your plan, these hotels will create a visual spectacle for you and your bae.
Proposal on the beach – A timeless proposal idea
Yes, this proposal idea is a timeless and ageless one, just like Bollywood actress Rekha. For a beach proposal, you can choose between many of the beach resorts, shacks, restaurants. Again, for the nth time, letting the venue in on your plan well in advance is very crucial and important.
Propose to her in Santorini Greece
Santorini is an island off the coast of Greece and is considered to be one of the most romantic places in the world. Especially the towns of Oia and Imerovigli. Proposing in the beautiful Santorini is one of the most romantic gestures, provided you have not forgotten the ring home.
Hire a local band, choose a scenic spot and let Santorini do the magic for you. Best time to propose, Sunset or Sunrise, depending on if she is a morning person or an evening person.
