Because Men Proposing is Too Mainstream!

Remember the time when Monica decorated her apartment with candles and popped the big question (well, almost!) to Chandler by going down on her knees? The F.R.I.E.N.D.S fanatics went all in awe! Wasn’t thatamazing to watch a girl do that? We believe, it shouldn’talways be the guy who proposes, even girls should take charge and ask their prince charming’s to be their “Happily Ever After.” After all, men love getting proposed as much as women and planning a dream proposal is not that hard either. Whichever route you take and whatever you plan, make sure you sprinkle it with love and lots of love, and we are certain he’ll be flattered for life!

Here are some amazing and out-of-the-box ideas to plan an overwhelming proposal for the man in your life. Just mix it with emotions and love and we are sure he’ll say yes!

Put the Best Foot Forward
The first step to any proposal is choosing the perfect engagement ring. While there might be many easy options available for picking a ring for women, finding engagement rings for mencan be quite a difficult task. But not when you have CaratLane at your rescue. The options available would surely leave you in awe!

Take Him to His Dream Destination
By now you might have a fair idea about his dream destination. Pick out a suitable date and plan a vacation with him to that very destination. And since you both will be together, the perfect time of the day to pop the question would be early in the morning. Wake him up with the ring and other presents by his side and a small note that reads something like, “Will you be my happily ever after?!”


Flash Mobs are the way to go
One of the best ways of proposal that’s making news these days are flashmobs. Organise a flashmob by bringing together his friends and family members. Include all his favourite songs and match steps with others while asking him to marry you. He will surely love this gesture!

A Cosy Candlelit Dinner
One of the simplest yet most memorable ways to pop the question is by setting up a table nicely in a corner of a romantic restaurant with live music around. Whether you want to have a cake that reads “Will you marry me” or to hide a ring in his champagne glass, the choice is yours. Just make sure you choose the best spot which is away from the crowd and everything from the beginning to end is planned to perfection.


Prepare a Video
A cute little video with memories of your relationship would surely leave him in awe. Take help from a photographer friend to give this video a fine finishing touch and end it with you proposing him. If possible, book an entire cinema hall and ask the projector guy to play it for you during the interval. Otherwise, invite him over and have a great date night at home. Keep the engagement ring you bought from CaratLane handy and present it to him when the right time arrives.

Now that you’ve got enough ‘doable and quirky’ proposal ideas in your head, you shouldn’t be waiting no more. Go ahead and claim your man for life! If you are feeling particularly confident about his answer, then add your ring to the wishlist too and break the stereotype. After all it takes two to tango, right? You can even find engagement rings for couples in gold from CaratLane stores!
