Valentine’s Day Proposal Guide

Valentine’s Day is the most romantic day of the year, so it’s the perfect day for an ultra romantic, memorable proposal. If you’re considering proposing this Valentine’s Day, read on to see our Valentine’s Day Proposal Guide! Below, we’ll be featuring some sweet, creative proposal ideas that will help you sweep your love off their feet this Valentine’s Day.

Recreate a Special Moment From Your Relationship

In the days leading up to Valentine’s Day, tell your partner that you’ll plan your Valentine’s Day date. Then, on Valentine’s Day, surprise your love with a date that recreates a special moment in your relationship. For example, you can recreate your first date or the date when you realized they were the one. Then, get down on one knee and pop the question, making sure to explain the sentiment behind your proposal location in your speech!

Create a Photo Album

A classic Valentine’s day proposal needs a signature Danhov engagement ring, like the ring featured above.

On Valentine’s Day, present your soon-to-be fiance with a photo album filled with pictures of the two of you throughout your relationship. Then, on the last page, write a sentimental message that leads into your proposal. For example, “I can’t wait to make more memories together” or “what will the future bring?”

Plan a Special Getaway

Want to add a major dash of romance to your Valentine’s Day proposal? Try planning a special getaway trip! Then, you can pop the question at your beautiful destination. Or, if you really want to surprise your Valentine, consider popping the question right before you head to the airport or hop in your car to travel to your romantic getaway destination. Not only will that give your proposal an exciting element of surprise, it will also allow you to celebrate your proposal for your entire trip.

Hide a Hidden Secret in a Book

If your sweetheart loves to read, try surprising her with a hidden engagement ring in a book. She’ll be excited to get a new book, but will be even more excited when she sees an engagement ring hidden in its pages. To pull of this proposal idea, you can get a ready-made book that already has a hidden box or cut out area. Or, you can DIY a book by cutting out a box in the pages with an exacto knife.

Valentine’s Day Morning Proposal

If you’re getting close to engagement, your sweetheart may suspect a Valentine’s Day proposal, since Valentine’s Day is one of the most popular days to propose. But even your partner has an inkling you may propose on Valentine’s Day, you can still surprise them by proposing at a less traditional time: on Valentine’s Day morning. Try surprising her with a romantic brunch or breakfast in bed, then get down on one knee! A Valentine’s Day morning proposal is just as romantic as an evening proposal– yet far more unexpected and surprising. Pair your proposal with this stunning two-tone engagement ring.

Lean Into Valentine’s Day Traditions

If your partner loves all things romantic and sweet, go all in with the “Valentine’s Day” element of your Valentine’s Day proposal. Deck out a room with rose petals, candles, heart shaped balloons, and so on. Be sure to make your display is something that will sweep them off their feet! Then, as they’re basking in the beauty of their surprise, get down on one knee and really sweep them off their feet with your proposal.

Best Snowy and Whimsical Winter Proposal Ideas

In the winter, the air is crisp, snow is falling, and there’s simply a feeling of magic in the air. Winter is the most romantic time of the year, which means it’s the perfect time to propose.

If you’re thinking of popping the question this winter, know that there are so many ways you can incorporate winter’s magic into your proposal to make it even more special and memorable. To help you find a winter proposal idea that’s perfect for your love story, below our experts at Danhov take a closer look at six of our favorite snowy and whimsical winter proposal ideas.

1. Say it With Snow

For a memorable (and very photogenic) proposal idea, try writing your proposal message into a snowy bank. You can write your message with flower petals or twinkling lights, or you can simply carve it out. To make this sweet proposal idea even more memorable, try choosing a snowy area with special significance to you as a couple. For example, you could find a snowy spot outside your first date spot or choose somewhere near your home.

2. Snowy Getaway Proposal

If your sweetheart loves to travel, consider heading to a romantic winter getaway spot for your proposal. You can pick a place you’ve both been dying to visit or go somewhere completely unexpected and spectacular. We love this proposal idea because it’s fun, exciting, and incredibly memorable, since it creates a new destination in your love story. There’s the place you met, your home together, and, now, your proposal spot.

3. Capture the Moment

If you want to make sure you get great pictures of your proposal, this is the perfect idea for you: propose during a photoshoot! Hire a photographer to take some pictures of you and your partner. Then, during the shoot, get down on one knee and have your photographer capture every second of this magical moment.

If taking professional pictures isn’t common for you, you can easily come up with a reasonable excuse for the photoshoot. For example, you could say you want to get a nice photo for a Christmas card or you could say that you’re gifting her a photoshoot for her birthday. Or, if you want to be even sneakier, you could also have one of her friends get in on the idea. They could say that they want to do a fun photoshoot with their girlfriends for a special occasion. Then, you can surprise her during the photoshoot by coming out and getting down on one knee!

For this idea, make sure you choose a photographer who has experience shooting surprise proposals. That will help ensure they can coordinate with you seamlessly and get those amazing shots you’re looking for.

4. Say it With Coffee or Cocoa

For a cute, cozy, and romantic proposal idea consider popping the question with the help of her favorite winter beverage. You can use a latte stencil to write your message in cocoa or cinnamon, or you could get a mug with a hidden message at the bottom of the cup!

5. Head to the Slopes

If your partner loves to hit the slopes in the winter, try incorporating your proposal into a skiing or snowboarding expedition. You can propose in the resort’s lodge, at the top of a ski slope, or simply at any particularly pretty spot on the property. Or, you could ask the resort to help you propose by writing a message in the snow under the ski lift.

6. Write Your Message in the Heavens

If you want your proposal to have a serious “wow factor,” consider writing your proposal message in the sky with the help of a skywriter. Pick a clear winter’s day and hire a skywriter to write your proposal message in the sky above a favorite location. This proposal idea is a grand gesture that’s sure to set her heart on fire.
