Wedding proposals seem to have gotten more and more creative (and crazier, in some instances) through the years. From themes to venues to accessories, it seems everything’s fair game in romance (as long as you don’t break any laws, that is).
If you’re thinking of popping the question to your Significant Other anytime soon, understand that you have to spend considerable time and effort in executing a really memorable wedding proposal. Doing things in a slap-dash manner can admittedly still result in something memorable, albeit not of the good kind.
Here are five of the most romantic and most imaginative wedding proposals to make her say “I will” right before she says “I do”.
Make a Blockbuster move.
This one will require a lot of planning, assistance from friends and family, perfect timing, and support from your local movie theater. And okay, a bit of money, as well. But if you execute it properly, it’s a blockbuster story you will no doubt be bending your grandkids’ ears over in the future.
Make a video of your proposal and ask your local movie theater to show it before a scheduled full-length feature starts. Of course, you can also opt to have the proposal shown during the end credits, but lots of factors could influence how she feels at that point…including a bad plot, acting, or spilled soda.
The Sleeping Beauty maneuver.
For this one to work, you have to make sure your girl sleeps soundly and won’t be roused by slight movements…including one made by you slipping an engagement ring on her finger. When she wakes up, wait a bit until she notices her new sparkling piece of jewelry…and watch her reaction before popping the question.
The iPod iDo.
Filch her iPod or favorite MP3 player to execute this move. But first, record yourself asking her hand in marriage, and then slip the audio file somewhere in her favorite mix (one she’ll likely listen to that day). Or, make her a special mix, load it into her iPod, and wait for her to say “I will!”

Sweets for the sweet.
There are many delicious ways to propose to your sweetheart using desserts. One is to place the box containing the engagement ring in a box of her favorite macarons, brownies, chocolates, or anything else she fancies. Or, you can ask the chef at a restaurant to frost the words “Will you marry me?” on her dessert plate. If she’s in the mood for some Chinese takeaway, have a special fortune cookie with the same words made for her…and make sure she’s the one who cracks it open!

Guest-write for a blog or site she usually reads.
If you’re a real wordsmith (and even if you’re not), why not propose to her by writing about how you feel about her, the things you really love about her, and why you want to spend the rest of your life with her? Prior to this, make sure you know the sites and blogs she usually reads or goes to everyday. You can contact the owner of the blog or site and ask to submit a guest post for this very purpose. In some cases, you might be required to pay a fee, but if it means having your little literary masterpiece read, cried over, and replied to with a resounding “yes!”, then by all means, do it.
