While we are sure you already have a number of ideas, but if you are still looking for an unforgettable way to propose, then get inspired by these romantic proposals shared by real brides and surprise your partner.

1. Richa & Andrew

As a Christmas present, Andrew decided to take Riccha and her sisters to a skiing vacation in Taos, New Mexico where they were joined by his 2 best friends from college. On the last day of their trip, they took the ski lift to the top of the mountain and at golden hour (also the same time the mountain closes so they were the only people on the mountain, and some ski patrol officers of course) in the snow and the sunlight, he got down on his knee and asked her to marry him. 

2. Simi and Udit

Udit proposed to Simi at the Astarte Suites in Santorini, Greece. After a day of cruising, snorkelling in the Aegean Sea and dinner on the boat while watching the sunset, he had a surprise planned for her back in their room. Amidst an all rose and candle setup he asked her to be his wife and they later celebrated it by facetiming her family and a drink by the pool.

3. Karen & Aakash

Aakash proposed to Karen at the Washington Square Park (where they first met) when they were visiting NYC. While they were on a run working out, he slowed down right by the fountain in the square and asked her to marry him.

4. Drishti & Deepak

Deepak planned a super romantic proposal for Drishti that took them from London to Paris. From the station, a driver picked them up and took them to a boat on the river Seine where they dined watching the beautiful sights of Paris while a violinist played music for them. They then headed back to London and went to St. Paul’s Cathedral which is also Drishti’s favorite spot in London. It was there that Deepak went down on his knees and asked her to marry him.

5. Hanna & Shahrukh

The two were vacationing in Bahrain where Shahrukh had planned the surprise proposal on a private beach along with Vikram from Mpire Events. Taking cues from the hints that Hanna had been dropping during their dating phase, suggestions from friends, and the team, they curated a setup that was straight outta Hanna’s dreams. In fact, straight outta everybody’s dream!

A gorgeously lit up path led to a serene canopied table seating set up against the sunset and ocean. Fairy lights, candles, and roses marked the entire space whereas, live artists and carefully selected food menu topped it all off flawlessly.

6. Simrun & Kevin

Kevin always wanted to plan the most romantic proposal ever. The morning of the proposal their driver picked them up and took them to an open place that was surrounded by colorful hot air balloons. They were a thousand feet above when Kevin dropped to his knees and popped the question. With teary eyes, she said yes!

7. Shaivi & Oscar

One late January ’18 night, Oscar had planned to take Shaivi to New York City for an evening welcome gala for his school. However, when they approached the venue, Central Park’s Tavern on the Green, a horse-drawn carriage took them on a nighttime stroll through the park.

As they reached the end of a cobblestone pathway through Central Park’s famous Bethesda Fountain, they stumbled upon Bow Bridge which was lit up with hundreds of tea lights while Shaivi’s family and closest friends hid in the bushes nearby. At the end of the bridge was a Mariachi band playing a romantic Mexican prelude and in the middle was a rose petal heart with the words, “Marry Me”. It was then that Oscar got down on his knees and before anyone knew it, #ShaiviWonAnOscar!

8. Pragati & Rahul

Rahul proposed to Pragati on a vacation to Savannah, GA which also was a surprise she got on Valentine’s Day through a puzzle. After lunch at The Olde Pink House one noon, Rahul had planned to visit a cool art gallery at a hotel. While the host was taking them through a tour of the gallery, Rahul excused himself to the restroom but the host kept showing around the gallery to Pragati explaining each painting. “She led me upstairs and there I saw him—Rahul standing in the middle of a heart of roses. I can’t even remember what he said but, I’m pretty sure I said yes!”, tells the bride.

9. Navroop & Harman

Harman proposed to Navroop in the most personal, intimate, and sweetest of ways that is beyond perfect. They both were sitting in a park when Harman pulled out a small book with their stories, special moments, arguments and basically their journey written. When she reached the end of it, he even read out her favorite poem and Navroop still had no clue because Harman would usually do such adorable things for her. It was after the poem that he went down on his knees asking her to marry him!

10. Shaheen & Qaseem

Shaheen had planned to go out for dinner with her friends and on her way to the restaurant she was surprised to see Qaseem standing in front of her. Behind him, there was a huge board that was lit up with fairy lights and it read – ‘Grow Old With Me’. Qaseem ensured that he proposed to his lady love in a most-cutest way ever as, everything was perfect, from them being under the stars to having the Habour bridge in the background.

Qaseem popped the question with a circle diamond ring. It was something that Shaheen always wanted.
