7 Valentine’s Day Proposal Ideas
1. Plan a date night.
Simple but effective. Invite your partner to get dressed up for a romantic dinner for two in Las Kitchenas. Cook (or order) their favourite meal, open a bottle of champagne and pop the question over candles, music, and chocolate cake.
2. Recreate a scene from their favourite film.
A little bit cheesy maybe, but you can have some fun with this, and don’t we all need some humour in our lives right now? It will show how much you know them, and it will certainly make a unique engagement story!
3. Go big and go cliche!
If you can’t make a show of proposing on Valentine’s Day then when can you? Decorate your bedroom with flowers, candles, balloons, the whole shebang. Embrace the cliche and have some fun with it!
4. Keep it cosy and casual
What if big and extravagant isn’t their style? Whip up mugs of hot chocolate and snuggle under a blanket in front of the fire. A chilled-out evening, with no pressure or expectations can be even more memorable than a big declaration of love.
5. Make it a morning surprise.
There’s always the expectation of a proposal on Valentine’s Day so be ready to pop the question before it can even cross their mind! Pour a Buck’s Fizz, warm some croissants and surprise your partner over breakfast in bed. Waking up to a ring is the best way to wake up! You can spend your day relaxing, drinking fizz and browsing for bridal ideas.
