Proposal Ideas at Home

Love Can't Wait

"I SAID YES! Today we were supposed to be in Gatlinburg, TN to celebrate my birthday (and for Daymon to propose) but with everything going on things didn't go as planned. But I'm so happy to finally be engaged with the love of my life! Today turned out to be a great birthday. I can't wait to spend forever with you and for us to celebrate this next chapter in our life. I love you fiancée!"


Planning to pop the question at home? There are many ways to get engaged at home that offer complete creative freedom, making the moment more meaningful and memorable. For some, the more simple and casual the atmosphere, the more intimate, personal and romantic the proposal. For others, low-key settings can offer an affordable way to ask, “will you marry me?” Check out some ideas for the perfect at-home engagement.



For a classic and romantic home proposal idea, prepare her favorite meal and pop the question over a candle lit dinner. Choose a private setting, like a patio or porch, and make the dinner even more intimate by dressing up for the occasion and by adding her favorite flowers and dessert.

Ask your fur baby to lend a helping paw when proposing at home! Tie a ribbon and some flowers around their collar, or make a sign and have your pet ask for you. Including the pet you share together is the perfect way to express your love, commitment and devotion.

Start her day with a loving surprise. Prepare your sweetheart's favorite breakfast and present it on a serving tray with fresh flowers in a vase. Create a more romantic sentiment by slipping the ring on her finger while she’s still asleep, hiding it in a napkin so she discovers it herself or put it on display in the center of the tray.
