10 Marriage Proposals Revealing All the Romance of the 21st Century

A marriage proposal is probably one of the most touching and exciting moments in the life of a couple. Some of them take this ritual really responsibly, with great imagination and a fair amount of humor.

Bright Side collected for you the most unusual proposals proving there are also knights in our time. The most brilliant proposal is waiting for you at the end.

10. Tattooed proposal

Vinnie Capaldo-Smith asked his girlfriend, Brooke Wodark, to tattoo his leg. When she started working, she saw a picture with the inscription “Will you marry me?“ and 2 variants of the answer. Fortunately for Vinnie, Brooke gladly tattooed the cross in the ”yes” square.

9. Beluga whale proposal

This guy from Chicago had an unusual assistant for his proposal. It was a white whale from a local aquarium, which brought a box with a note inside: “Will you marry me?“ All he needed to do was give his love the ring and hear the cherished ”yes.”

8. Ice cream proposal

Luke Munsterteiger ordered a special ice cream for his girlfriend, Else, as a marriage proposal. There were emojis on the box that Luke and Else often texted to each other and the inscription “Will you marry me?“ Later she ”accidentally” found a treat intended for her in a supermarket.

7. Harry Potter proposal

This guy decided to make a thematic quest based on Harry Potter, of which his love is a huge fan. “After he took the mask off, he asked me to be his wife and I said “Yes!” and ugly cried,” she says.

6. “Literary” proposal

American Paul Phillips ordered an illustrated book about their love story for his girlfriend, Erika Ramos. He hid the surprise in the local library, where he brought his bride. After the surprised Erika saw the pictures, she happily answered “yes.”

5. Telescope proposal

We could say that their marriage was predicted by the stars themselves. True, the heavenly luminaries got a little help from the guy in love, who made a lens for the telescope with the inscription “Will you marry me?” and casually asked his girlfriend to look at the Moon.

4. Board game proposal

The woman in this photo literally won a marriage proposal: she had a card with the inscription “Marry me,” which she had to draw. The happy woman guessed it wasn’t the game only when her loved one took the ring out of his pocket and went down on one knee.

3. Proposal in Starbucks

We're getting married!!! Since before @austinmann and I started dating we have left notes for each other hidden in airports around the world. The first of those special spots is in the Amsterdam Schiphol airport where we had our first international date. I was headed back from Tanzania this weekend with a layover in Holland and Austin reminded me to check for the note he left me at our @Starbucks. I landed in a different terminal from where I needed to be and I wasn't sure how I was going to get the note. I almost gave up and left. But I found a way to transfer. I walked up to our spot and there was a note sticking out behind a chair. My heart started pounding because this had to be a new note not something he left on a past trip. It told me all the things he loved about me and then said If everything had gone as planned there would be a drink waiting for me at the bar. I stood up…rounded the corner and there was Austin with a bouquet of tulips and the most beautiful diamond ring. 💍🙌🏻😭 I kept saying "what are you doing here" probably 5 times or more. He said he loved me and then got down on one knee right there at the Starbucks in the airport and asked me to marry him. I said "YES" and everyone watching in the terminal cheered! I then looked over Austin's shoulder and my little sister @anna_havens was standing there taking this photo with an SLR and Telephoto lens. He flew my sister to Holland! I was in complete shock and couldn't be more thankful. We took a few moments to ourselves – praying and thanking the Lord and then walked out of the airport to all of my Dutch family standing outside of security with balloons and flowers singing and cheering. I mean whaaa!!! I was completely surprised and blown away. I could not have dreamt up a more perfect proposal to the man I love so dearly. I have never felt more joy! God is so faithful and I'm so thankful for the perfect plan He has always had for us and I can't wait for the journey He has for us as husband and wife!

A post shared by Esther Havens Mann (@estherhavens) on

Because of constant travels, Austin Mann and Esther Havens rarely saw each other. To brighten up their separation, they left notes to each other at airports’ Starbucks coffee houses. One of these notes, which Esther found in Amsterdam airport, was followed by the proposal.

2. Proposal with a GPS tracker

Avid runner Ben Chudley created a difficult multi-kilometer route during one of his runs, which was displayed on the GPS tracker in the form of the words “Will you marry me?” Ben showed the screenshot to his girlfriend, Olivia, accompanying it with a wedding ring.

1. Dancing proposal

You’d probably agree that it’s great when a couple has common interests. Phil Wright thought the same way and decided to propose to his girlfriend, Ashley, with whom he’s dancing, during a dance. It was bright and incredibly touching.
