Hints for Romantic Proposals

When you think about it, there are very few questions that have the importance and the impact of marriage proposals. So even if you have nerves of steel, the thought of proposing to the woman you love may bring on some jitters. But don’t worry. The secret to a successful proposal is very simple: Know what will please her and prepare yourself for the moment.

The best proposal depends on knowing what makes HER happy. The most important thing to remember when proposing marriage: Know what will appeal to her. (This is good practice for marriage.)

Here are some hints to help you:

1: Think about the type of woman she is.

If she’s a hopeless romantic, your proposal should take this into account.
If she likes bold statements or has a particular passion in life, your proposal could be more creative or extravagant, but if she prefers intimacy, then a private proposal will be in order.

But if she adores the spotlight, then a more public proposal may truly win her heart. And if she’s traditional, your proposal should be more traditional too. Think about your relationship and something that is special to just the two of you.

2: Think about setting the scene.

It could be just about anywhere-a restaurant, an amusement park, a beach, an art gallery or even a movie theater-as long as it has meaning for both of you. It could be a place you’ve both always wanted to be-from Barcelona to a hot air balloon.

If there’s a venue that holds wonderful memories, you could plan your marriage proposal there. Rent your favorite movie, watch it at home, and propose during a pause. Arrange for a magician to make her engagement ring materialize from nowhere. Or fly her to Venice and propose on a gondola ride. (Or the Gondola at the Venetian Hotel in Vegas…)

3: Focus on the moment and on her.

Whatever stage you set, the most important thing is what you say. Express your proposal with love and sincerity, and let her know how much she means to you. The only real requirement is that it must come from your heart. The focus should be on her, and the special moment you’ll be sharing.

If you can’t afford a lavish backdrop, realize that it doesn’t matter. What she cares about is the way you express your love and your desire to become lifelong partners. Know what you plan to say well in advance, and make a statement that captures all that’s special about her.

If you just don’t think you can remember to speak the way you would like to, you could give her a poem, especially if she is a tradionalist, or even a romantic note. However you decide to ask, make it special.

4: Prepare for the unexpected.

If you’re planning to pop the question in a hot air balloon but thunderstorms make the trip impossible, you’ll have to reschedule for another day-or come up with a back-up plan. Ditto if you’ve invited her for a romantic weekend at a country inn, and she comes down with the flu. Very few things in life ever happen precisely as we plan them, and this is no exception.

Take the situation in stride, create a contingency plan and consider this a dress rehearsal for your marriage-which will surely have a surprise or two as well!


A recent survey reported that 80 percent of women who were proposed to said their proposal was “less romantic” than they had hoped for. So, regardless of how or where you propose, try to imagine what she would want and gear your proposal towards the type of woman she is.

It doesn’t matter if you’re in an elegant restaurant, a park or a sports event. The way you express yourself is key. Tell her not only that you love her
but why you love her, why she’s special and the only one for you.

May my heart be your shelter,
and my arms be your home.
~Marianne Williamson

Born to Give My Love to You
Romantic Love Song

This was first recorded by Kennedy Rose who also wrote the lyrics and music, but I could not find a video of them performing it. Martina McBride does a fantastic job too, but I still love the original recording better. No matter, this is a wonderful song expressing love that was meant to be. Yes I had it at my wedding:)

Proposal Poems

Writing a proposal is a time honored way of asking your beloved to marry you. Some people are just shy with words. Poetry is a very romantic way to propose! Here are poems to help.

Will You Marry Me?
Romantic Proposal Poem~by Nicholas Gordon

There is a time when freedom must be bound
By what we freely choose to call our own.
For if not, someday we will have found
That we have made the choice to be alone.
I cannot call my love for you a choice:
I simply made a turn and you were there;
And all I was came singing with one voice
To lift my soul ten feet into the air.
But lightning bolts do not outlast the storm:
The years demand not ecstasy but will.
My love for you must take a different form,
One that lasts a lifetime, deep and still.
And so I make my choice, if you’ll agree,
And seek your answer: Will you marry me?

Why I Want to Spend the Rest of My Days With You
Romantic Proposal Poem ~by Nicholas Gordon

You have an angel’s face, a loving heart,
A peaceful, sunlit smile that lasts forever.
You are the whole, of which I am a part,
Not fully me unless we are together.
I know there is a world beyond our love
In which such thoughts are merely poetry.
But thinking of you now, I can’t remove
The glow that shines on you from inside me.
How happy, happy life is when some tender
Feeling like a candle lights one’s eyes.
For all my life you’ll be my heart’s true center,
Striding like a sun across my skies.

Love Me in the Circle of Your Evening
Romantic Proposal Poem ~by Nicholas Gordon

Love me in the circle of your evening,
And in the morning quiet of your dreams.
Love me underneath ambitious schemes,
And when they slow and time can use some seasoning.
I do not need your highways and your streets
As long as I can be there when you’re home.
We both have miles of paradise to roam:
Let me be where your brave heart retreats.
And I will love you in the times of tears,
Of hope and laughter, pain and ecstasy,
And all the days of haunted thoughts,  when we
Can share the undertow of vanished years.

Lyrics to My Favorite Song in Moulin Rouge: “Come What May,”
by David Baerwald

Never knew I could feel like this
Like I’ve never seen the sky before
I want to vanish inside your kiss
Every day i’m loving you more than this
Listen to my heart, can you hear it sing
Telling me to give you everything
Seasons may change, winter to spring
But I love you until the end of time.

Chorus: Come what may Come what may
I will love you until my dying day.

Suddenly the world seems such a perfect place
Suddenly it moves with such a perfect grace
Suddenly my life doesn’t seem such a waste
It all revolves around you
And there’s no mountain too high
No river too wide
Sing out this song
I’ll be there by your side
Storm clouds may gather
And stars may collide
But I love you until the end of time.

~Lyrics from the Liner Notes on the Moulin Rouge Soundtrack
