Earlier this month we shared some noteable engagement stories with you, and hoped it would inspire you to share your own stories with us for a chance to win a bottle of champagne.
Here’s another roundup of remarkable proposals from around the world…
The 007 proposal
A James Bond fan pulled out all the stops to impress his other half with a secret spy style proposal. Given just the vague instruction of “bring a bikini and a ball gown”, the unsuspecting girlfriend was collected by a chauffeur and whisked off to a mysterious location to be greeted by a helicopter. Embarking on a solo flight, the girl was finally met by her other half at the landing helipad, as he waited on one knee, fully suited with ring in hand.
The wooly proposal
A resourceful farmer herded his flock of sheep into a surprise proposal to his partner by writing ‘will ewe marry me?’ across their bodies and lining them up. A creative and bold proposal that certainly didn’t pull any wool over her eyes.
The Monopoly proposal
One hopeful romantic built a custom Monopoly board to execute a flawless Christmas Day proposal to his girlfriend. He had designed the game with personalised properties based upon places they had visited together, the dice were rigged so she could only roll a seven, to land on a ‘chance’ card which read ‘will you marry me? If yes, advance to luxury tax’. Luxury tax, of course, is where the diamond ring was hiding.
The out of this world proposal
For one man, a planet earth proposal was just not good enough for his girl. Attaching the ring to a high altitude balloon using a spatula, he blasted it 110,000 feet into space, and filmed the whole thing on a GoPro. The video was uploaded to YouTube alongside some romantic captions for her to watch as he officially popped the question.
