Need advice ..for my proposal!

on Dec 08, 2011 @ 04:13 pm

Hello Chicks :)

So! I have been wanting to propose to my boyfriend of almost 4 years for a long time now, have purchased our rings and everything (found an awesome deal on tungsten ring for him online, hes a plumber and wanting to join the army so gotta have something that's scratch resistant !) but couldn't think up a cute way to propose!

THEN...I won (thanks to ChickAdvisor...THANKYOU!) the Fuji Instax camera and thought it would be SUCH a cute way to propose to my wonderful man/baby daddy!! 

But now... I'm kind of stuck on what little things I can do to make it more awesome...So I will be using the Fuji Instax camera, I was thinking leave little hints/pictures along the way so he has to come and find me, but need your help on awesome hints etc!

 I know at the very end I want to lead him somewhere that is special to us, was thinking the place we met or near it (we met on a mountain but also had our first date in Kits, Vancouver so thinking more around there), and I will have a picture of me on my knees and write below it MARRY ME!

What do you guys think?? Do you have awesome hint ideas for me... I'm starting to freak out a bit, how do guys do this!!

OH and in case you are wondering, why in the hello is this chick proposing to a man, well...We are both very very opposite, I'm the loud, outgoing one and hes more laid back and calm.  SO it suites my personality for sure!

But more importantly, when we first met I said no kids, no marriage!

That's just how I always had it in my head my whole life.  Then we got preggo and it was amazing and exciting from the first time I found out! But now he has it in his head that I will never want to get married etc because I've never said anything to change his mind, so thought it would be appropriate if I took charge and showed him, He has made me want to get married :)

Would love any advice, creative ideas etc you may have for me!!

Thanks in advance!  <3

Can you have him go on a bit of a scavenger hunt using pictures as clues? Maybe have a few stops at places that are meaningful to the two of you and when you reach each destination give him the next clue until you get to your finale. Don't overthink it. Just the fact that you have done something creative and meaningful will be enough. Let us know how it goes!

I have definitely been over thinking it, so hard for me to even keep a secret about his christmas presents! If it comes in time, I'm thinking of doing it January 15th (our 4 year anniversary) so that we can keep celebrating on the same day!! haha

Still have yet to think up the very first picture though, that's what is really stumping me!

Good Luck!!!! I am sure he will be absolutely floored!

I think it is best to just start and go with it- even if your first few photos don't turn out how you want, if you get started and get a flow going, it will be easier to do it I think.

I think it would be really cute to have some photos of inside jokes or things that are meaningful to you both (or at certain places like Ali suggested!)

Or maybe you could set up photos with yourself holding up letters to spell out 'Will You Marry Me?" or something cute like that!!!

I love the scavenger hunt idea! Maybe have 4 / 5 special places with 4 / 5 friends or family there to give him each clue. So each clue will have a special message and will also give a hint for the next place his next clue is hidden. Perhaps the picture will be the special message or inside joke, and behind the pic you can write the next place hint? Perhaps the final place (where you'll be at) can be the most special place for you guys (maybe the hospital where your baby was born? lol sorry, is that too weird / corny? Or maybe the place you told him your were pregnant?)... you can decorate with candles, flower petals, have your couple song playing... all the while he'll probably think you're doing something super special for your anniversary, so he'll really get floored when he sees you on one knee proposing! :-)

Be sure to have video cameras setup to catch his reaction and the special moment in the final phase!! One of the best part of this thing is you'll get to keep all the pics for memories =D

I'm sure whatever you do will be perfect!! Those are just my ideas lol :)

I'm so excited for you!! I can't wait to hear how it turns out :)

Really like that idea alex, thanks!!! I was going to do just a marry me photo but that sounds more extravagant ;)

SO COOL! never thought of having a person with each picture, but vancouver is very busy so might be best before people steal my picture hints! haha :)

Thank you so much you are all helping a lot !!

Take a pic of the letters W I L L Y O U M A R R Y M E ?

(15 pics in all) and maybe a pic of you at the end holding the rings or something.

Then have 15 questions attached to each letter.

For every question that he answers right, give him a letter to solve the overall puzzle.

Of the 15 questions I would make the questions relatively easy and meaningful to your relationship.


For the W ask him a question about you or the relationship with an answer that begins with "W"
For the I ask him a question about you or the relationship with an answer that begins with "I"

and so on and so on.

You can incorporate the scavanger hunt by putting the next clue with a confirmed correct answerof the clue previous.

Think Amazing Race styles.

OMG you guys are good! I honestly would not have come up with all of this so thank you all for the creative help!!

TOTALLY amazing race styles, love it!

I wonder if I should be helping or have friends/family....I think it might be better if he just sees me at the end..Ill probably be too nervous anyway!

Definitely taking these all to <3

THanks :)
