Not everyone is looking for a flashy marriage proposal. You don't need to recreate your first date, get a flash mob in the middle of Disney World, be on top of the Eiffel Tower, or hire a photographer to capture a moment in front of the crowded Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center in New York City. Sometimes the most creative proposal ideas are the ones that show you really know your loved one well enough to pick a special place to pop the big question before whipping out a stunning engagement ring.
Nothing says "Will You Marry Me?" like actually putting time and effort into the wedding proposal to make your loved one feel special. It's not about getting the perfect photoshoot for all your family members to see on social media or making sure you book a restaurant with their favorite food for Valentine's Day.
