For those romantics who are searching for a different setting to propose marriage, try the beach. While the setting alone provides enough of a romantic backdrop, the location offers plenty of creative ways to make the moment when you propose both special and unforgettable.
Writing in the Sand
Imagine the look on your lover's face when she is presented with a proposal in letters 6 feet long in the sand. This is accomplished by scraping it out by hand or by setting it out with a collection of stones. Either way will should elicit a smile. Make sure your message will not be scrubbed out by the sea and that it can be seen. Perhaps take her on a cliff walk so she can spot the giant letters clearly amongst the stunning view?
Message in a Bottle
This works best if the beach is empty; you don't want to risk accidently proposing to a nosy young child. Write the message on a piece of paper and squeeze it into a bottle. Before your beach date, hide the bottle somewhere that's difficult to miss. Subtly mention the correct directions to get to the bottle while you stroll along the shoreline later. If you have a creative flair, combine your proposal with a poem and make it harder for her to decline.
Picnic and Proposal
Plan a quiet picnic on the beach. Prepare a meal lavished with all of your unsuspecting partner's favourite treats and maybe a bottle of expensive wine that shows she deserves to be indulged and get you both in a romantic mood. Then, when she least expects it, propose to her. You could even hide the ring in her favourite food or in her drink and wait for her animated acceptance.
Keep her guessing by organising a treasure hunt with the ring as the prize. Create clues which lead your lover around the surrounding area before ending up on the beach. Picking places which mean something special to you both can be an excellent way to choose the clues. Hide the ring in a treasure chest or decorative box for her to discover when she arrives at the beach, and watch her expression when you get down on one knee and she realises what you have been up to! If you do not want to risk leaving the ring in the box, write a meaningful note about your devotion to her and put it in the box instead. Then as she reads the note, present her with the ring and ask her to spend the rest of her life with you.
