Your relationship is going well; you love her and want to spend the rest of your life together. As you were planning your perfect marriage proposal, the Covid-19 pandemic has arrived! While you plan to propose marriage to your lover outside, the pandemic may have ruined your glorious dreams. On the other hand, being in quarantine at home does not prevent you from making this offer, which will be one of the best memories of your life. Home marriage proposals can be very romantic too!
Surveys show that the Covid-19 pandemic affects at least 53% of marriage proposals and wedding plans. The marriage proposal plans for couples living in different countries or cities were interrupted. The dreams of those who wanted to ask that critical question in a crowded place outside were shelved for a while.
Well, wouldn't there be a marriage proposal at home? Perhaps this is even more intimate and deeply emotional. Almost everybody, from restaurants to jewelry stores, started to serve on the internet during our time, which will make your job even more comfortable for your special day.
Doesn't marriage mean being together "in sickness and health"? Now is the time to show this. Let's take a look at how you can organize a marriage proposal at home.
1. Make a Slide of Your Common Memories
Is there anything as romantic as remembering your expected date? Bring your old photos and videos together. And watch the history of your relationship together on TV. Grab your most comfortable pillows and blanket and lie down on the sofa together. Maybe you can light a few candles to make the atmosphere even more romantic.
2.Cook or Order Her Favorite Restaurant
You may not be able to eat at your favorite restaurant due to the pandemic, but this does not prevent you from eating this restaurant's food. Miss that chic Italian restaurant in the city center? You can get help from the internet and make your favorite meal by yourself. If you are not too confident in your cooking skills, ordering the restaurant's meal home and setting an exquisite and romantic table is also an option.
While setting your romantic table, you can make a few small changes in the items and choose the best or most scenic corner of the house.
3. Have an Online Cocktail Party
Celebrations often accompany marriage proposals with friends and family. In today's conditions, this is not possible for now, but with the help of technology, you can make an online party that looks like old celebrations. Make a date for your friends on the video call, ask them to take their favorite drinks, and dress in style. Enjoy a toast to your video, call friends with your loved one right after your proposal!
In this plan, the detail of dressing is important because you want everything to be in the quality and "normalcy" that will not look real.
4. “Travel” to Your Favorite Destination
Real travel is not an option right now, but you can create your favorite destination at home! It could be Paris, Rome or Santorini, and it doesn't matter. Cook the food of the place you want to go or order if there are restaurants of that culture around you. Play the music of that culture and make small decoration touches that will remind your home there. If you can't go to Paris, you can bring Paris home!
The destination you choose can be a place where you have been on holiday together before or your lover would love to go.
5. Request an Online Ceremony from a Local Band
Supporting local business initiatives and employees, especially artists, is crucial during the pandemic. Arrange the bar's band where you go and enjoy live music to serenade on Skype or Zoom. In this way, you can both support them and give your lover an unforgettable marriage proposal.
You can ask the group to play a song with a place in your relationship or that your lover likes.
6. Take a Private Walk
Even during the pandemic period, there are still secluded and safe outdoor areas. You can propose marriage here by walking to a favorite park, beach, or a beautiful and private place. If you have a car, it will be easier to reach such areas, usually a little far from the city. Make a plan to keep a secret of where and why you're going, and don't forget to take your ring with you! For the celebration, bring your lover's favorite drink and a pair of glasses with you. You can make the environment even more romantic by choosing a particular time, such as a sunset.
