The only thing more romantic than proposing on Valentine's Day is actually getting married on Valentine's Day. Naturally, however, just because it is a romantic day to propose, you still are likely to want to make your proposal intimate and special. Here are some ideas that may help you to make your Valentine's Day proposal as romantic and special as possible.


If your potential fiancee likes chocolate, the perfect way to propose may just be with a box of chocolates. A beautiful heart shaped box can fit all of your girlfriends favorite chocolates, with the ring of your choice right in the middle. This may not be entirely original, but it is fun, especially if your girlfriend loves chocolate as some women do.

Red Velvet Surprise

There is not a cake flavor on earth that is more romantic in appearance than a red velvet cake. The beautiful red color, combined with either a nice pink icing, or plain cream cheese icing is a perfect accompaniment to a proposal. You may use the ring as a decoration for the cake, or you may just put the box beside a slice of red velvet cake or a red velvet cupcake for a perfect proposal. Just don't put it in the cake, because a trip to the emergency room is never very romantic.

Take her someplace that you both love

This can be the beach, the park, the snow, or even a theme park. If you take her someplace that is special to the two of you, you are almost sure to get an enthusiastic yes when you get down on one knee and propose. The important thing to remember is that it has to be a place that you both love and that you will remember, because the two of you may want to take a stroll down memory lane later on for one of your anniversaries.

These are just a few ideas, you may be able to come up with similar ideas based on these if you wish. The important thing is that you do what feels right to you and fits both your and your girlfriend's personalities. As long as you keep that in mind, and you have a pretty good idea that she's going to say yes, you can't go wrong. Perhaps you can even plan the wedding for the following Valentine's Day. Whatever you do, it will be special for the two of you.
