If you are keen to propose to your partner, the chances are that you have been nervously trying to formulate a romantic way to pop the big question. You may have spent these pandemic months reassessing what is it important to you in life. The chances are that your partner came out on top and you are now ready to commit to your soulmate for the rest of your life. Being a hopeless romantic, you want to set up something special rather than simply proposing over dinner at home. With these coronavirus days forcing us to adjust to a new normal, it can be challenging to be innovative when presenting your partner with a ring. Take a look at these inspiring wedding proposal scenarios to inspire your own.

Go Outdoors

Alongside the pandemic, social distancing measures have been put in place. This has made it difficult to head out for dinner or venture anywhere indoors. Instead, people have been embracing the great outdoors. It makes sense to set your proposal outside. Think about a place that is special to you as a couple and think about setting your proposal here. This could be a tree in a park, a specific picnic bench, or a garden where you shared a kiss. Pick up some artisan food from a deli, surprise your partner with an outing when the weather is good, and over dessert your can present the ring and ask the question!

Go Big

Grand gestures can be seen as a little gimmicky, but if you can’t go big when proposing, when can you? Think about hiring a fly by with a banner declaring your love for your partner and popping the question on the banner of the plane. Or perhaps, you want to set up a socially distanced flash-mob in your favourite park, like the ones at You could feign surprise as people start dancing around you, only for you to join in at the last minute and ask your loved one to marry you. You could consider whisking your partner away for the weekend at a spa. These venues now have social distancing in place and it could be the perfect relaxing spot for you to propose.

The Ring

It can be challenging to find the perfect ring for your partner. You could go for a classic design like the range at with diamonds and bling being the order of the day. Or you might want to be a little more restrained with an unfussy band. Or maybe, your partner would adore an antique or vintage ring with a real history. Alternatively, you could go the extra mile and design a ring for your partner. This hugely romantic gesture would result in a one of a kind ring bespoke to your soulmate. You can’t get more sappy and lovey-dovey than this.

Weddings are different at the moment and can only be attended by a maximum of thirty people as Covid-19 shows no sign of abating. However, by proposing now, you can hold off and wait until restrictions are eased before you have a larger wedding to celebrate your commitment with your nearest and dearest.
