You could enlist the help of a prop (or props), and leave a note on a cuddly toy or have something personalised, like a mug inscribed with the words ‘Will you Marry Me?’

5. The Hike

If you both love long walks, you could propose at the top of a hill or mountain with a glorious backdrop as your vista. It would certainly add a genuine and overwhelming happiness to the sense of satisfaction that follows an exhausting walk.

6. With Family and Friends

If you are particularly close to your friends and relatives, why not included them in your marriage proposal? Form a dance mob, get them to hold a letter each, assembled in the order of ‘Will you marry me?’, or propose at a family event.

7. At a Restaurant

More classic but never out of time, proposing at the end of a romantic dinner out at a fancy restaurant is the perfect conclusion to a beautiful evening.
