3 Creative Proposal Ideas for the Spring
As summer approaches, there’s still time for you to plan a spring proposal! Spring is a lovely time of year to propose because everything is in bloom, signifying the new life that you’re about to start with your sweetheart. The scent of flowers wafts through the air, and the weather is perfect for an outdoor proposal. Here are three creative proposal ideas to consider.
1. Nature Walk
We say “nature walk” rather than “hike,” because only the fittest and most outdoorsy of folks find sweat and sore muscles romantic! A pleasantly paced stroll, where you can walk hand in hand, is a safer bet. Choose a scenic park with tree-lined trails, or a local botanical garden. If your first date was out in nature, or on a pretty university campus, take her back to that spot.
If there’s space to spread out a blanket, pack a picnic. If you can make sure she won’t open the basket in advance, tape a love note to each picnic item and have her pull them out one by one. Write “Will You Marry Me?” on the last note. Extra points if it’s attached to her favorite food!
2. Scavenger Hunt
A creative proposal idea for temperate weather is planning a scavenger hunt around town. Make a list of places that are special to both of you: the place where you met, where you shared your first kiss, and your favorite restaurant, for example. Then write clues that will lead her from one place to another (don’t make them too hard!) and place them shortly before you propose. If you leave the clues with any people, make sure that they know about their important role in your proposal, and the approximate time you’ll be arriving. In the last location, plan to get down on one knee and surprise her with a sparkling diamond cluster ring!
3. Buried Treasure
If your lady loves the beach, find a spot with a nearby landmark and bury a message in a bottle in the sand. In the message, write how much she means to you. Make sure that the bottle is fully covered, so no one else digs it up! When you arrive at the beach, give your sweetie a treasure map and have her dig at the X. After she reads your letter, take a knee in the sand and pop the question.
Bonus: Get your dog involved in the proposal! See our previous post, “Creative Proposal Ideas Involving Her Dog.”
