The element of a sweet surprise is the perfect way to inject romance into your proposal. It is the best way to sweep your bride-to-be off her feet as it gestures to a great deal of planning and effort put into pulling off a thoughtful proposal. What’s more, reframing the question will add intimacy and memorability to your proposal, so you’d want to plan your proposal right down to the speech!
There are many ways to hide your ring in inconspicuous places, so start by considering your location and your bride’s interests. Additionally, a surprise proposal will involve more coordination with the help of family and friends or external factors such as the weather. So, always be flexible and craft a plan b in case your original ideas are not feasible on the day of the proposal. Keep her loved ones in the loop to prevent anyone from giving it away with an accidental slip of the tongue!
If you plan on the most dreamy proposal by the beach with a gorgeous sunset or sunrise as your backdrop, hiding the ring in a seashell is a creative, unexpected way to propose. You can either hand her the seashell yourself or perhaps lead her to find joy in searching for it herself.
But if your partner is more of a bookworm, sneaking the ring into a hollowed-out book would be a heart-warming scene straight out of a romance novel! Not only will the sturdiness of the book protect the ring just like how a ring box would, but you can pass her the book while casually drawing her attention to a specific page the ring is beautifully positioned in.
Another classic and traditional idea would be to slip the ring into a locket. Packaging a diamond ring in an extra piece of jewellery is unexpected and would surely impress your significant other. You can also customise the locket with her initials or pictures. This allows your proposal gift to serve an additional purpose: a gorgeous, romantic accessory with a story of its own.
2. Rope in the help of your adorable pets

If you’ve secured a BTO and started looking into wedding venues together, she might already be expecting you to pop the big question anytime soon. But fret not; the goal doesn’t necessarily have to be all about that ‘surprise’. Perhaps it’s time to get her mind off the question for a moment to deliver that equally memorable and romantic proposal.
If your partner owns a pet, involving her furry friend will definitely make the proposal a lot more intimate. However, getting a dog or cat to cooperate may be a little tricky, so keeping things simple is best to prevent the proposal from heading south.
Attaching the ring to a pet collar is a creative, subtle way to show off the ring as your partner greets and embraces her pet. This furry friend is sure to help you pop the question and swiftly slip the ring on her wedding ring finger! Otherwise, you can also include a tag on the collar with a thoughtful ‘will you marry me?’ message beautifully engraved on it.
3. Play to the strengths of your location
This one’s for those of you set on going all out; display your ring in style and a myriad of ways! Trust us, a grand and elaborate set-up will set the stage for a successful proposal. If you’re planning to propose outdoors, a wooden box will complement nature’s beauty while also serving as a sturdy support to protect your fragile diamond ring.

If your bride is more of an old-school romantic, dried flowers will serve as the perfect embellishment for your ring box design and to match the natural backdrop.
