Valentine’s Day 2011 is on a Monday, so there will probably not be as many Valentine marriages this year. However, many marriage proposals are still going to be made on this day of love. Proposing on Valentine’s Day has always been a memorable and romantic gesture. Hiding the ring in a box of chocolates, at the bottom of a glass of champagne, under her napkin at dinner, or in her favorite bouquet of flowers is an idea used by many.
If you would like to make your Valentine proposal more memorable, here are a few ideas:
• Poems are always romantic especially when written by your loved one. If you have a poetic talent, or a songwriter down deep inside then use your talents to express your love. Your poem/song will be more personal and thoughtful than something copied.
• A message in a bottle - Living close to a beach offers many advantages for romance. Set up an area for a picnic and evening at the beach to watch the sunset. When she is not looking, bury, or hide a bottle close by. Then nonchalantly find this bottle with a message inside.
The message will mean just as much as the effort of the proposal, so prepare a sweet and personal note to your loved one.
• Proposals are meant to be memorable. If you eat out all the time, then a romantic Valentine dinner at home may be more memorable. The private setting can be perfect for an intimate wedding proposal. The opposite is true if you eat in all the time. Choose an upscale restaurant for a special dinner out. Plan ahead so reservations can be made and your timing can be set.
• Pets are sometimes very much a part of your loved one’s life. If she has a dog, or cat, that she cherishes than use their services to help deliver your Valentine proposal. Attach a sweet note to their collar. When she goes to pet them, she will find your note.
Planning ahead is very important. What you are going to say, or write in a proposal should be heartfelt. Planning may also help calm any nerves that you have. A Valentine Day proposal will be a lasting memory that you can talk about over your many years of marriage.
