Creative Ways To Propose Marriage?

Sat Oct 16, 2010 1:37 pm

I am going to propose marriage to my girlfriend in December and want to make it memorable. I was thinking of going up on the London Eye at night and ask her? Along the lines of asking whoever is in the car to take a picture of the 2 of us? and then say wait a min, I forgot something, and then pop out the ring! Depending on not risking being discrete, would be if I let them in on it before hand?
Another option was to try to get a flight crew to help me out, but figure it would be pretty difficult in these times?

Can any of you recall any creative marriage proposals that you have heard about, or any other suggestions?

Stay Safe Everyone!

The London Eye idea is good but I wouldn't get somebody to take a photo. You can book a private pod but it's very expensive - I would personally do it in private but if that's not possible then I'd just ask the other people on the down low to give you a little room and do it there and then.

Are you saying that it is really crouded in the pods? I have never been up in it before? I just wanted to get her reaction on camera, so letting them know on the down-low would be the best option. Thx for the intel.

I like your story. It is very nice!!! We need more stories like this! This is great news!

I find the London Eye a good idea and it won't make you run bankrupt either.
I have thought... why not get a A.netter to help and be there unknown to your wife and do the pictures?
I would certainly volunteer if I was there and do the pictures for you. I am way too far distance wise.
There was a better way to fly it was called Concorde

That is a great idea, anyone that is going to be in London the first week of Dec, PM me if you want to help, and of course grab a beer? Thx Madame Concorde!

Whatever you don't do it in front of the Crown Jewels at the Tower of London! Whatever size stone you have will look pretty puny compared to those!! LOL Plus the moving sidewalk would put the time limit on the length of your proposal! LOL
Good luck and lets hope she doesn't read A.net on the side!

Well, that depends upon what you consider "crowded." I was able to move about the pod and take photos of the view without difficulty but I'm not sure if my experience is typical.

Probably not as much as you think. You'll probably have better luck enlisting the help of the cabin crew than you would the cockpit crew, for obvious reasons. Unless you know someone on "the inside" that can set things up for you prior to your flight, you'd be at the mercy of chance on whether or not the particular crew on your flight is willing to help or even able to help. If you go this route, have a back-up plan in place.
I lift things up and put them down.
