Do you love nothing more than the comfort of your home? Feeling limited by current health restrictions? How about simply proposing to your significant other at home? We tell you how.
The proposal is the first step in the great adventure of your commitment. You want it to be memorable, but you don’t need to fly to the end of the world to make it happen.
A successful wedding proposal is above all a warm and romantic atmosphere, a moment suspended just for you where you can express your feelings. The house is a very good choice to say your love, a place where you have your bearings and where you feel perfectly at ease.
Are you tempted by the idea?
Then refer to the list below to develop the most beautiful request, yours!
The right moment
A marriage proposal is not improvised, and it is better to have time in front of you so that you and your other half can fully enjoy the event. Friday night is a good time to do this, as it is the beginning of a weekend that will be placed under the sign of romance! You can also choose Sunday, traditionally destined to laze around, to enjoy the time that stretches out.
If you are planning a vacation soon, why not propose at the beginning of this well-deserved break and follow it up with a short stay for two in a beautiful resort.
The more ambitious can plan a long term proposal: an advent calendar with sweet words in each box until the last one containing the proposal, a whole month punctuated with little surprises going crescendo until the proposal.
The right place
At home yes, but where? While the living room comes to mind, your home is actually full of different resources for a personalized wedding proposal. Ignore convention and choose the room that is most representative of your couple.
This could be the kitchen, for example, if you share a passion for food and like to spend time in this room that you have enjoyed decorating together.
It could also be the bedroom with a personalized decor for the occasion, the bathroom with candles and a bubble bath, or even a terrace or a garden if you have one and you are nature lovers.
Finally, you can also have fun organizing a treasure hunt through all the rooms of your house, giving your other half a treasure map or a list of clues!
The right atmosphere
A proposal is a romantic setting, but it’s up to each of you to create an atmosphere that suits the tastes of the person you’ll be sharing the rest of your life with.
If your proposal takes place in the evening, as is often the case, you can use candlelight, string lights, a candlelit dinner table, champagne, flower petals, and a canopy hanging over the bed like a tree house.
If you prefer the morning, prepare a hearty breakfast for your partner that you will bring to bed or that you will install on the terrace according to his preferences. Here you can draw a ring on the bottom of your favorite coffee mug or slip a little note in it.
If you have a garden, why not accompany your request with a country picnic and cook some pasta in the shape of letters to ask the big question?
The right people
Proposing on your own can be a little dizzying! Nothing prevents you from being accompanied by people you care about, as long as their presence is meaningful.
If you have children, they will be the perfect accomplices to tell your love to your other half. For example, you can put on a bodysuit or a T-shirt for a baby where the proposal will be embroidered.
It is also possible to involve your best friends. Before the proposal, make a video montage with their help to propose to your other half. When the big day arrives, all that’s left to do is project your little film onto a white canvas or wall in the room of your choice.
Finally, you can of course call upon your faithful pet, by slipping the proposal into the collar of your dog or cat.
Are you ready to take the plunge? When it comes to marriage proposals, there’s no room for error, as long as it’s in your image.
