“The story of how you proposed will be told to friends and strangers for the rest of your lives,” says Simone Hill of theknot.com, so choose a place that has personal significance to the two of you, she advises.
Entertainers Katalina and Christian love to tell about the gentleman who attended a Mind Tripping with a lady he was dating for the first time. Two years later, that same man called and arranged to propose to that very lady at an upcoming show.
“Audiences love to see love,” Christian explains with a smile. “There is so much negativity about marriage in the media, that we like to create an environment that demonstrates that being together as a couple is a great thing.”
The Knot offers no fewer than 61 different proposal ideas. (Slight problem – many are weather-dependent):
- Building a sandcastle together at the beach
- Riding scooters or bikes to tour the city
- Raking the leaves in his or her yard to spell out the proposal
- Building a kneeling snowman
- Flying a kite that has “Will you marry me?” written on the underside
- Going berry-picking and hiding a ring among the berries
- Proposing on a night when there’s a lunar eclipse or during a fireworks show
Same problem with some of the adventurous ideas suggested by Pugh’s Diamond Jewelers in Ohio:
- Take your loved one sky diving, and land trapped under the parachute. When she’s helping you out of your shoot, be on one knee holding a ring.
- Take her on a ski weekend, and have a huge sign made saying “Will you marry me?” posted on the slope.
- Spend a day river rafting, then get down on one knee and say you want to weather the rapids of life together.To be sure, Indianapolis, home of the state’s longest-running live entertainment show, lacks both beaches and ski slopes. But at the Mind Tripping show, there is more than enough love and surprise to go around. And, when one of the surprises comes in the form of an audience member popping the question to his or her beloved, well, you have love at its mind tripping best!
