Valentine Proposals - Romantic Ideas to Propose Marriage on Valentine's Day

Are you seeking fabulous ideas for valentine proposals?

What could be a better time to propose than on Valentine's Day? You'll show her that you really want to spend the rest of your life with her and it will be a great start to the rest of your lives together.

The key to this type of proposal is to find a way to really be romantic and creative. For instance, one of the oldest tricks there is when it comes to Valentine's Day proposals is to include the ring in a box of chocolates with a note, but these days, most of the boxes of chocolates you get are wrapped in plastic, unless you go to a high end chocolate maker and choose them by hand.

If your girlfriend loves chocolate, though, this might be just the way you're seeking to offer a romantic and unusual valentine proposal. However, if you're looking for something a little bit different, consider alternative ideas for your proposal instead.

Extravagant or simple - which is better?

It can be really hard to figure out whether to be simple or extravagant when it comes to your valentine proposal, but you should know that when it comes to this special and intimate occasion, your love may want to be all alone, just the two of you. Or, she may like the idea of everyone watching your special moment. When you're planning this special occasion, make sure that you really know what kind of proposal will go best. You can send out feelers to see what sort of proposal she would prefer, or you can ask her friends about what she would like.

If your girlfriend likes to be quiet or prefers to have more of a private sort of situation, then you might want to consider something that ties in with Valentine's, such as a candlelit dinner and getting down on one knee.

Or, if you're creative, consider making a scrapbook page with photos of wedding dresses and all things wedding. Have a sample invitation printed up for your wedding and attach it to the middle. For this valentine proposal, you will need to know what colors she might use at her wedding, but it will be well worth it. You can mail the page to her for a big surprise, or you can have a courier deliver the scrapbook page to her work and be ready to step in with her ring and your proposal.

If you're going to propose to someone who doesn't mind the attention, you can consider many different ways to propose. Going out to an expensive dinner? Consider talking to the staff to see if they will get in on the surprise with you. For such valentine proposals, you can write a love poem and have it in the menu, and when she looks up, consider being on one knee with the engagement ring.

Or, when you buy the ring, you may want to consider buying 14 ring boxes to put notes about why you love her so much into. Or, consider lighting a pathway of candles and leading your girlfriend to you and your proposal. This will lend some excitement to the occasion and increase the surprise factor.

Should you stick with tradition?

Even though you're planning a special valentine proposal, you should still remember that there are some times to be traditional. Keep in mind that if your girlfriend comes from a very "old school" type of family, it's a really good idea to ask her parents for her hand in marriage before you go ahead with your Valentine's Day proposal. This will help you to know that you have her family's blessing, and it can help her to feel more comfortable with accepting.

Ultimately, when you're planning a valentine proposal, you can be as romantic and creative as you feel the occasion warrants, so think about your girlfriend's personality and the things she really loves, and try to choose things that will be cherished and unexpected.
