Life takes many twists and turns, but some moments stay longer than the usual. ‘Unforgettable’ is the word normally used to for such moments in life that transform our usual life experiences into something unexpected, special or out of the blue.
These milestones in life are bigger turning points like – Births, graduation ceremonies, school farewell, weddings, and so on. It often takes weeks, months and even years to plan the ‘perfect’ moment for such occasions. One such memorable occasion is your marriage proposal. Flowers, sky-writing, love notes, or ring in the champagne glass are traditional, don’t you wanna try something new?
Here is a list of ways you can try to find out the answer to the most important question of life.
1. If your bae is a movie buff
If she can’t stop thinking about Kajol’s towel-dance in DDLJ wondering ‘Kaisa hai, kaun hai woh jaane kahaan hai’, give her the most Bollywood-iest proposal by recording lots of clips of both of you together in several places, outfits, situations and days making memories. You could then compile all of this and set some romantic background tracks that is set to woo the Simran of your life.
2. If your babe is adventuresome
Is your girl headstrong and loves living life on the edge? Let her have some fun before you put that big question at her. Coordinate a well-planned scavenger hunt, starting off with a clue someplace nearby and let that progress as you keep dropping hints at intervals.
Have the destination somewhere you can hide and pop out of nowhere getting down on your knees!
3. If your sweetheart is a wordsmith
Does your girl love flaunting her gifted vocabulary? Does she spend half of her day solving crosswords? Wrap up a custom jigsaw puzzle and let your sweetie solve it and spell out the pieces – ‘W-I-L-L Y-O-U M-A-R-R-Y M-E?’
4. If your beloved is a book-a-holic
One-sided rope braid caressing her satin dress with the locks of her hair making tiny curves round her earlobes and her gaze lowered down immersed in a book. Is she that carefree soul sitting in one corner of a library with the glow of her careless beauty strewn all around?
Make your bookworm an amazing proposal flipbook.
Let her flip through the pages as your words make way into her mouth, shining bright in her smile while she reads your question!
5. If your intended is a fashionista
If your honey cannot think beyond that MAC Frost Lipstick or the new Lakme Skin Gloss, pamper her with all her favourite products and shades, and while she gets all hyped about it – slip her a cute expressive note inside one of those tiny packages.
6. Switch gender roles
Before we switch over to another topic next week we’d like to leave you with some food for thought. While men have traditionally proposed to their would-be, there isn’t any rule barring the other gender to put on their thinking caps and surprise the love of their life with the handsomest marriage proposal. So don’t keep waiting and watching, don that superwoman cape and shout loud those beautiful words to the king of your kingdom!
