  • Need Help with Romantic plans

    Howdy folks.

    Well I final got the chance to sit down woth my girlfriends father and ask his permission to marry his daughter. I know that's corny and old fashion but thats me. :love::yea:

    I went and picked out her ring and will pick it up on wednsday

    Now I need help on how to propose to her. I am a romantic at heart and would like to do something speical. I have thought about doing a scavenger hunt and at the end of all the clues I would be waiting to ask her.

    What do you think? Any ideas? Suggestions?
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!
    :love: :lol:

    No offence but a scavenger hunt seems a tad bit corny. Why don't you take her out to dinner, and have whoever serves you your food to put the ring in the wine, or on her plate (don't let her eat it) lol

      A scavenger hunt sounds fun if it's a romantic one. Do what suits you and your soon to be fiancee's personalities. Have you talked about her dream scenario? Does she want to be alone with you or around people or around nature? When I got engaged the one thing I wanted was to be around nature and not around a bunch of strangers, but tha'ts just me.

        First, WOW! Corny? Uh..no! I would love for a man to do this for me. There aren't many like you out there...can I clone you?

        I think a scavenger hunt would be cute! If that is what her personality would like. Make it romantic.
        I remember my best friend telling me of what happened to her back in college. She had a guy drop rose petals that lead to a clue, then at the clue there was a rose and the clue to the next rose...with more rose petals. At the end of was a great dinner with candles and everything. It was cute.

        Good luck!

        Ta Da!

          Oh that sounds awesome. The reason i thought it sounded corny above, was I wasn't thinking of one like this. I was imagining a scribbled sheet with clues...i'm wierd like that.
          I actually like claribellas plan a lot!

            As a guy, I can appreciate you wanting to make this a special time, but one thing we often overlook, is that this is her day/experience. I know a guy who took his GF to a Diamondbacks game and had the proposal put on the jumbotron. She didn't like sports, was embarrassed to be put on the spot and said no.

            So, the moral of the story is do something she will like, and enjoy. It doesn't have to be some crazy, convoluted event. There is A LOT that can go wrong with a scavenger hunt. Keep it simple, it's about your love, not about having a good story to tell.

            Good luck.

              wow!! That is soooooo sweet! Maybe the locations of the clues for the scavenger hunt could be the places where important things have happened in your relationship?

              My best score ever!

                Where was your first date? Or a particular place special to the both of you?
                Be sure to bring a camera, and have someone take pics of the new happy couple!

                  That is what the plan is. I am going to have the first clue be delivered by her neighbor that is real good friends with. I am also going to involve her sister and best friend. The last area she will be sent to is a romantic spot at the park where our first date was,

                      I think it is going to differ between every relationship. My girlfriend and I kind of have this agreement that we'll get hitched next time we are in Las Vegas, so we don't need to do the whole engagement thing.

                      However, I'm an old softy at heart and I do like a nice romantic story. The best advice I could give has already been given: do something that would show HER a good time - that you know she will love - and it makes it all the sweeter.

                      For the record: I think a scavenger hunt is wonderfully corny, and if I did swing that way (and wasn't taken), I'd marry you. There are a LOT of 'ifs' in there though...

                          I would love for a man to propose to me at disneyland in front of people( Brian are you listening,) but not by snow whites wishing well cause one of my good friends husbands did that and I wouldn't want to steal his idea.Were both cast members, so just doing it at disneyland,where we met, would be so awesome.

It is a good thing I was not drinking something because it would have ended up all over my screen. This image of your cat, fully dressed, requesting a photo shoot (in an English accent mind you) just really got to me. Wow, I need to go catch my breath and maybe see what was in that bottled water I was drinking earlier...

                              I love to do it at Disneyland but as we live in Minnesota that's not an option. I did ask her if she had any fantasies to how she would like to be asked and she said anything but in a restaurant. I hinted at the hunt and she seemed to like that idea. I pick up the ring on Wednesday and will do it within the week. I will post on here how it went.

                                  I was trying to avoid posting in this thread as I don't want to look like I'm giving Tool hints, so it's cute, what you wrote! :lol:

                                  Seconded (thirded?) on the "do what SHE would like"... every girl has a story of some "dream" date she went on that was actually the guy's dream, not hers! She probably has at least a few ideas in her head of stories she's heard or things she thought were romantic in others' proposals. If you're friends with her best friend, you might want to ask her for tips, SHE would know!

                                    OMG ouch! I'm sorry, but those kind of "romantic" gestures are very few. So unless I KNEW that the man wasn't for me...or knew of some reason not to marry him, I would not have said no, even if I didn't like sports or was embarrassed. But as it is, I LOVE baseball..so the scenario above would just send me over the EDGE!

                                    Ta Da!

                                      He hit the nail on the head. You need to ensure that your proposal matches her. I took my fiancé to a nice dinner overlooking the ocean. After some great food and drinks, we took a gondola ride in the harbor just ten feet away. I purposed on the gondola. Great memories but it matched her personality and her being. Just make sure its about her.
                                      GOOD LUCK!

                                        What you did is NOT corny and NOT old-fashioned. It is respectable and honorable. Therefore, you are NOT corny or old-fashioned. By the way, I asked my wife's Dad for his permission to marry his daughter and he was overjoyed that I asked him and said that he and her Mom were thrilled and gave it 100% support!
