Las Vegas Engagement – A Truly Grand Proposal

If you’re not afraid to propose in public and really want to make an impression, then you might consider proposing in front of the fountains at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. As the water dances to the music being played and the crowds gathering around to watch the spectacle, this is your chance to put on your own show.

(If you’re really good, you’ll do it during a song you know and time it with the climax of the song)

Proposing in Boston? Have fun beating Top of the Hub Restaurant

top of the hub, marriage proposals, engagement storiesKnown for it’s spectacular views of the city, Top of the Hub restaurant is located 52 floors above the city in the Prudential building.  Rated as one of the most romantic restaurants in the US by the Travel Channel, it’s an option you must consider if you’re proposing in Boston anytime soon.  General manager Raphael Oliver was quoted as saying: “Tens of thousands of couples have become engaged at Top of the Hub since we opened in 1965. If there were to be a reunion of them, the amount of people attending would fill the entire Prudential building. Not a weekend goes by without several marriage proposals taking place”.  So make your reservations early, order those flowers and have the champagne chilled to make this proposal one she’ll be talking about for years to come.

5 Engagement Ideas

1) Tell her to take time off work and arrange for everything to be covered for a week (but don’t tell her where you will be going). Make all the plans for a week’s vacation in a five-star resort in Mexico. Propose one evening at a restaurant with serenading mariachis. You can have the diamond ready in your pocket.

2) Order a dozen red roses and pick them up yourself at the shop. Write the card to say, “Will you marry me?” and put the diamond in a presentation box with the roses. Present the flowers during a candlelight dinner for two at home (cater if you can’t cook).

3) Mail her a romantic poem from Shakespeare or Browning. Include a photo of yourself on your knees with a diamond in your hand, and write on the back in marker, “Will you marry me?” Be ready, hiding outside her house when she normally opens her mail, and go inside with the diamond in hand when you hear her scream with joy.

4) For the serious netizens — E-mail a 3-D animated graphic of a loose diamond, with the message, “Will you marry me?” If you can, time the delivery of the e-mail when you can be there in person to see her reaction and get your answer.

5) During a vacation at one of the fancy hotels that leaves chocolates or mints on the pillow each morning — Sneak back after she leaves the room for breakfast, make the bed, put out the “Do not disturb” sign. Leave the diamond in a special box on the pillow in place of the mints so she finds it when you get back.
