Let’s just say at the outset, that the preferable place changes from person to person because it is such a personal, intimate moment for both parties. But if you want to ask (or hear, if you plan to egg things along) that all important, “Will you marry me?” from that someone special, there are really only two categories or places: private and public. So here is a quick rundown for both.
Home Sweet Home
For some reason, this is not the most popular idea that pops up when you mention proposals, but it is possibly the most private and intimate of settings for it, especially if you are already sharing a home. To be surrounded by the physical structures and the emotional structures that you and your partner has lovingly put together into a home over the past few months/years will add another layer to the scene and chances are, he/she will be impressed that you managed to keep the moment so private and about the two of you.
One More Shot!
Nothing says public more than bars, and that is exactly where some people pop the question to their significant other. Granted, a certain percentage of these are conducted while heavily under the influence and usually in cities like Las Vegas where marriage is analogous to their infamous drive-thru chapels. However, there are some people who deliberately choose a bar for its liquid courage and because the public nature of the setting is supposed to boost their morale. Go get ‘em!
This definitely takes first place among dream proposal settings. Most partners will select a place that is meaningful to the couple like the place where they first had a date or shared a kiss. Others will simply select it for its romantic atmosphere. The upside of this is that it is still a very private proposal but if you want to celebrate with your loved ones then the choice of engagement party venues Docklands is pretty simple: it’s right there and all you have to do is time it carefully.
The Flash Mob
Some people love planning grand gestures of their love. They spend hours organizing flash mobs, or pay to have the question flash up on the big screen at half-time during a game. They will dress up, orchestrate treasure hunts and otherwise plan extravagant proposals that are bigger than life itself. Apart from getting hundreds of likes and shares on social media, such stories reaffirm many people’s faith in love.
Infinity and Beyond
Then there are the big gestures – without an audience. So their proposals usually take place in locations that are bigger than themselves. The middle of a football stadium or basketball court; a waterfall or canyon serving as the backdrop after a long hike; a dream vacation on an island or nestled among the mountains; or in some place that was painstakingly staged and created to ensure that everything goes smoothly.
