1. Fill a room full of photos of you and your partner

Choose a room in your house (or perhaps a hotel room or romantic location), and fill it with pictures of the two of you showcasing different memories in your relationship. Celebrate with your partner different happy memories you have shared together, while asking her one of the most important questions of your life.

2. Create a custom-made puzzle

Propose using a custom puzzle or game. It should be something that is fairly difficult that the two of you need to work together to solve. Ideally, you would want her to be the one to complete the final step to reveal the “Will you marry me?” message hidden inside!

3. Re-create your first date

The place where you shared your first date is a great place to propose. Whether it’s a dining establishment, a coffeehouse, a park, or somewhere else, it can be fun to re-create exactly what you did on the first date. Order the same food, go to the same places, and when the time is right, pop the question in a symbolic fashion.

4. Do a trivia night

This can be done at a restaurant that frequently hosts team trivia contests. You and your partner will compete as a team of two. Plan with the staff ahead of time, and organize a question to be asked that will lead into you dropping to one knee and asking your partner to marry you! This is best done as the final question of the trivia game when the excitement is highest.

5. Catch the moment in a picture booth

Take your partner on a date to someplace that has a photo cubicle. Make sure to check out the timing and setup of the cubicle ahead of time. Take your partner inside, start the machine, and drop down to one knee while the camera is still snapping away. This will capture your real reactions in real-time that you both can look back on and enjoy for years to come!

6. Go to a planetarium

This is a great proposal idea if you both enjoy sharing new experiences together. Contact the planetarium ahead of time to see if they can project your partner’s name, followed by “Will you marry me?” during a stargazing program, light show, or similar event.

7. Surprise your partner throughout a walk on the beach

This is a very simple idea, perhaps best-suited for couples who enjoy the simpler pleasures in life. Spend some time walking with your partner along a beach ideally during evening hours, and pop the question exactly when the sun is setting. You can also hire a photographer to document the event from nearby.

8. Propose during an outdoor picnic

Plan an outdoor picnic in a lovely location when the weather is most comfortable. First, enjoy a meal with your partner. Then you can serve her wine with the ring in the bottom of the glass, dessert with the ring on the plate, or something similar. 

9. Organize a flash mob.

There are hardly and more unique ideas than proposing in the middle of a random group of people dancing in unison. This will surely surprise your partner at first, however her confusion will transform into elation when you drop to one knee and she realizes that you planned this for her. There are many sites and organizations that specialize in putting together flash mobs for special events such as this.

10. Take her to an aquarium. 

Get in touch with aquarium management beforehand, and see if they will hold a banner in an underwater tank that says “Will you marry me?” at a predetermined time. She will surely be wondering who that is for at first, however it will be clear that it’s for her when you drop to one knee pull out the ring.

11. Create a scavenger hunt

Say you want to take your partner on a scavenger hunt. Organize a series of different clues that she will have to decipher, and locations that she will need to go to in order to complete the hunt. The final prize will of course be the ring, at which point you can pop the question.

12. Propose in an escape room

Contact a local escape room and see if they are willing to swap out the final prize in the room with your engagement ring. You both can work together to solve the escape room, and at the end of your hard work, you can pop the question in a way that she will never see coming!

13. Work with a street performer

Work with a street performer ahead of time and have them plan something unique simply for your proposal. When you and your partner walk by, they will be in for such a magical reward with a performance and a proposal. Perhaps the performer can show a banner at the end of the performance, which leads into you popping the question.

14. Propose live on a podcast or radio show

This is a great idea if you have a podcast or radio show that you both love. Contact the show, and see if they are willing to help. Organize a specific time where the hosts will announce your proposal. Take your partner to a romantic place and listen to the podcast during the predetermined time, and ask her to marry you when the announcement is made!
