Congratulations! After much prayer you’ve decided to pop the question. You purchased the ring and want to make your proposal one she’ll always remember. The only problem is you’re fresh out of ideas.
Well, we would like to share our top 10 ideas with you. We call them “Christian” marriage proposal ideas because they’re wholesome ideas that don’t dishonor God.
Church Announcements Arrange for your proposal to be included in the Sunday morning church announcements. If your church uses video announcements, have them video tape your marriage proposal. While the announcement is playing, get on one knee and pull out the ring. If your church has someone read the announcements, have them read the proposal as you get on one knee with the ring.
God Tube/Tangle We love God tube because they have so many awesome Godly videos. Use your video camera, or borrow one to make a special video of you proposing to your fiancé. Submit the video to God Tube and when the two of you are alone tell her there’s an awesome video on God Tube you want to show her. Or if you can’t be with her, send a link of the video to her e-mail address. In the subject field type: Best God Tube Video Ever!!!
Engagement website If you’re a “techie” create a personal website and on the home page ask her to marry you! Not a “techie” don’t worry there are simpler options available like bravenet and homestead. They make the process simple and fun.
Memory Photo Book Gather up all the photos you can find of the two of you and create a hardback memory book that will last a life time. On the last page of the memory book ask her to marry you. She’ll love it!
Pictures in Gold For a really special marriage proposal visit PicturesinGold.com, you’ll find a ton of customizable jewelry options like engraveable heart shaped charms. Place a picture of the two of you on the inside of the charm, and then have the date you proposed to her engraved on the back.
Share it With Friends Invite a group of friends or family members to fellowship over dinner and a movie. At the end of dinner get down on one knee and propose right there in front of everyone.

Romantic Picnic Plan a romantic picnic for the two of you. Prepare a few romantic dishes and hide the engagement ring box inside the picnic basket. Now that’s one picnic ants couldn’t even ruin :-)
Restaurant Proposal Order a cheesecake or regular cake that has “Will you marry me?” written on it. After the two of you have dinner, order dessert. Arrange ahead of time to have the special cake brought out to her in lieu of the dessert she ordered.
Message in a Bottle What a timeless marriage proposal idea. We love this idea and your fiancé will too! Get an empty bottle that would be interesting for your fiancé to find. Put a heart-felt message in it, proposing marriage, and then take her to the beach to “discover” it (hiding the bottle in the sand beforehand at a romantic spot).
A scavenger Hunt Send her on a scavenger hunt where she finds you at the end waiting to propose to her. One suggestion is to send her to all the places the two of you went on dates.
