When the time finally comes to propose, there is a lot of work involved. A lot of thinking too. A big proposal? A small one? What if she says no?

It's all a bit daunting. If you're wondering what makes for a great proposal I'm not quite sure. But I can share with you some stories of some great proposals that have been done and worked, if you need any ideas.

Dating for two and a half years while working on cruise ships together, it was hard to choose what amazing destination to propose at. On the private island of Labadee in Haiti on the worlds longest zip line, the view was spectacular. 'Sarah' in the harness waiting her turn, when her partner mentioned the beautiful view and asked her if she would remember it forever. She said she would, and he then told her he had a question to ask her. She came over close and he proposed with very beautiful words spoken. Holding her hand he got down on one knee and proposed. She said yes, and with the ring now on her finger, what better way to take off in the air. Feeling like the luckiest girl in the world.

The next proposal was unexpected and was an at home proposal. The bride to be was out with a friend, and had no idea what was coming up. When she got home and came inside, the whole house was lit with candles. The groom to be had made a trail if candles that led to where he was standing dressed in a tux. He knelt down on one knee, and she cried. It was a magical moment. And of course, she said yes.

Another romantic proposal was of a young Sunshine Coast couple. 'Amanda' and 'Liam.' Liam blindfolded Amanda and took her on a drive. She thought that they were going skydiving, but instead when they arrived, they were at the top of point Cartwright where he planned to have a picnic. He prepared for her the same meal she prepared for him on their first date. Chicken burgers and coleslaw. With his friend hiding in the bush snapping photos, it was going to be a memorable afternoon. Amanda had no idea what was coming. Liam wanted to read Amanda a poem, so they stood up, and he led her to the stop where he would propose; and as he started reading the poem, she knew that was it. She said yes and they told their families the next day at Christmas lunch. And the photos? Liam framed the photos and gifted them to Amanda as an engagement present. How sweet.

The last proposal story I know of is a young couple sitting on the couch. 'Brian' tossed a box across the table to 'Tara' and said so how about it? Not so romantic. I probably wouldn't recommend it. But it worked.

There are so many proposals I could tell you about, but I don't have time for them all. Wether it be under the Eiffel Tower or standing on a bridge looking at all the city lights; whatever you choose to do it all comes down to the ending. Hopefully it's a yes for you too.
