1. At the Theatre of a Live Music Show

It’d be wise to contact the organizers of the show and inform them of your plans. Also, you should make contacts with a local violinist to perform while you will be proposing. So here’s how it can go down.

  • The setup might include the master of ceremony (MC) signalling you to go on the podium while the show is on its advanced stages.
  • The MC will then start a truth and dare game where he or she should ask you a question, upon failure to answer, he then dares you to hug your girlfriend.
  • Not only should you hug her, but also proceed to propose to her while musicians or actors enter the stage all seemingly unaware but blatantly in on the act.

2. Take your Partner on a coffee date at a classic hotel.

The hotel should be spacious and also located in a serene environment. While taking your coffee you will be talking and informing your girlfriend of your plans of intending to propose and randomly bringing up engagement proposal ideas to her. Teasing her may even make her more blissfully unaware that the moment is right upon her. After she is done drinking her coffee, you would then signal her to read what’s written in the cup. To her surprise, she would find the words; “I want to marry you, my angel”, or similar.’ To add extra emotion, consider adding some background music or a live violin player performing in the background.


3. Engagement Proposal Ideas while on a vacation or on a Short Trip Away

The destination is entirely up to you, but we find it hard to see past a beach in Cape Town or Durban. While on your getaway, you would then take her to swim, photoshoot or to play water bucket relay.  In the afternoon, you would then consider sitting with her at the beach while the sun sets.
