Dress Up As a Fiancé: The Best Halloween Proposal Ideas for 2014
Halloween is the first of many special days celebrated near the end of each calendar year, kicking off the holiday season with celebrations, costumes, and delicious treats. For the sweetest Halloween of your lives together, why not propose to your special someone on All Hallow’s Eve and start the holiday rush on a happy note? Check out these Halloween proposal ideas below!
Many couples want to meet with friends and family soon after their engagement to celebrate the beginning of this exciting new chapter, and holiday dinners and get-togethers offer the perfect opportunity. Halloween proposals also leave a lot of room for creative, memorable gestures that lead to wonderful engagement stories. Here are a few ideas for proposing on Halloween.
Say It With Pumpkins
To make your proposal and create romantic seasonal ambiance in one move, arrange a set of carved jack o’lanterns or festively painted pumpkins to spell out “Will you marry me?” where your intended is sure to find them. Follow her in to present the ring, or set the open ring box in front of your display.
A rose gold engagement ring will gleam beautifully in candlelight and echo the warm hues of the pumpkins, yet radiate elegance all year long.
Bobbing for Diamonds
The Halloween tradition of bobbing for apples lends itself perfectly to a traditional bended knee proposal. As you move toward the floor, your beloved will think you’re simply participating in a lighthearted party game until the very moment you pull the ring from your coat instead.
If you’re adventurous, you could even arrange for the ring to be hidden among the apples and discovered during the gameplay—just make sure it’s in a waterproof container and ends up in the proper hands!
A Spooky Surprise
For a playful proposal, blindfold your special someone and guide her through an old-fashioned haunted house activity with grape “eyeballs”, cooked spaghetti “brains”, and so on. At the end of the activity, just before removing her blindfold, slip the engagement ring onto her finger.
Place the ring in its box at the bottom of a small, decorated Halloween candy bowl or bucket with an assortment of your partner’s favorite wrapped candies to give as a gift. Once you’ve presented it, ask for a type of candy you didn’t include, prompting discovery of the ring as your sweetheart searches for your request.
