Weddings are always high pressured events, especially for the groom. However the pressure of the perfect wedding or honeymoon is nothing in comparison to the pressure of a superb proposal! Every girl dreams of her proposal. It's the one event romance novels and movies have hyped up that every man thinks and re thinks the way he's going to ask the woman he loves to marry him. You've seen the ring pop out of the fortune cookie, hidden in the cake, dunked in champagne classes and of course as American football has even immortalised the big screen flashing a proposal( which seems to be an extremely popular way to pop the question in the states). However all these are extremely passé. It's time to get creative and celebrate love in innovative ways. Take note gentlemen, it's time to up your game.
Fortune Teller - Convince her to go with you to a fortune teller saying it's fun and harmless (a lot of girls are very into this). You can convince the fortune teller to say she will get married in the near future and even if she doesn't believe in it, it will still excite her. However she won't expect you to propose just then so you can get the fortune teller to give you a moment of privacy and get down on one knee and propose right there !
Holiday Proposal - One of the best ways to propose is when you're on holiday. Some women expect you to pop the question but most don't. In fact if you down play the entire idea beforehand she won't expect anything and then when you've picked a romantic spot, it could be near the Eiffel tower or in a gondola in Venice or even at the Trevi fountain in Rome as you make a wish you can propose completely taking her by surprise and at the same time provide a wonderfully romantic setting to your proposal.
Underwater Proposal - If you and your partner are avid divers or even just beginners who want to explore the ocean bed this would be an ideal way to propose. With a little help from the diving instructors you can have a sign prepared and hold it up for her while proposing. She's going to be mesmerised by what she sees underwater but she will never expect a proposal several thousand feet below the sea! It's a perfect idea to propose without her suspecting a thing!
Skydiving - Take her on a sky diving adventure. It's an intense, untamed emotional experience and definitely not for the faint hearted. Once you've both jumped and you land in a tangle under your shoot, ask her to help you out and while she does go down on one knee with a ring and ask her to marry you. Believe me it will be the very LAST thing she expects at that moment.
Bungee Jumping - This one is for the real daredevil couple. Convince her to take a thrill of a lifetime experience with you and get her to bungee jump. Just before you're both about to jump you get down on one knee and pop the question. The jump afterwards will officially be the first plunge you take together and if you can hurl your bodies from several feet in the air, married life will be a breeze!
