SweetLove with Andrea: 8 Marriage Proposal Ideas That Will Make You Say “Yes!” Faster Than He Could Get Down on His Knee
07 Sep 2018EXPERIENCEBY Andrea

Another Friday means another installment of SweetLove with Andrea. Today she's bringing some proposal ideas that are heartwarming and funny and simple and extravagant... Can we say, "YES!" now? Take it away, Andrea!

Hi everyone,

When you have found someone you would want to spend the rest of your life with, it is natural to be excited to dream about how your marriage proposal would be like. Hopefully, it is something you will only experience once in your lifetime, so you want it to be memorable. The only limit is your wild imagination. And budget, of course. Yesterday I asked my followers to share their wishful thinking, as well as how they actually got proposed, and here are eight funny, heartwarming marriage proposal ideas that will make your heart flutter and your mouth utter “Yes! Yes! Yes!”

I don’t want anything grand, I just want him to get down on his knee, holding a ring, saying he’s got my parents’ blessing and that it's okay for us to be together even though we're of a different religion and ethnicity.


He rented a chopper while we're in Tokyo. He kept holding my hand the whole time, and as we're descending, he quickly pulled out the ring and popped the question. Of course I said yes!

Straight forward

I prefer a practical kind of guy to a lovey-dovey guy. I want him to look me in the eye and straightforwardly tell me to go find a venue for us to hold our wedding reception at.


As an ENTJ, I wish he would come to me with a PowerPoint presentation on why we're a match, including data, strong arguments, case studies, solutions, and recommendations. Because I'm such a logical person and a marriage is a huge commitment, so I want to make sure I know what I'll be getting myself into.


I wanted something romantic that's shared just between the two of us. Little did I know, he came to my house to meet my father, and told him he would like to marry me. I caught off guard, but it turns out it was the most romantic thing he'd ever done for me.

My boyfriend and I work for the same company. I wish he would propose me in front of everyone during our daily group meeting.


I wanted a simple proposal: no family and friends, no flash mob, no photographers, no down on one knee. I don't even care about rings, just ask me either in bed or sofa. One day I woke up to an envelope on the pillow next to me, saying “Read this first!” I opened it, it said “Will you marry me?” I said, “Are you serious??” He said, “Is that a yes?” I said, “Yes, of course!” It was nothing fancy, but it was perfect for me.

With A Budget

He randomly told me to create an income projection until 2019 and to send it by lunchtime. I was confused but I did it anyway because we're open about financial stuff. But before I could send it, he already sent me his income projection and budgeting for our wedding next year. Guess that's what happens when an auditor proposes an accountant.
