If you’re feeling spooked at the prospect of planning the perfect Halloween proposal, then here are few ideas to get you started…
Pick out a ring
The best diamond stores are the specialists online, where you can custom create a ring perfect for your bride to be who loves Halloween. While a black diamond would be perfect, you’ll have difficulty finding a diamond store who stocks these for a reasonable price. Instead, choose something a little unusual, such as a stone featured in a gothic style band or inscribed inside with a few words from their favourite spooky movie – this Nightmare Before Christmas inscribed ring is great for inspiration.
Set the scene
Plan a trip somewhere mysterious for your proposal on Halloween. While a picnic in the local graveyard might be the creepiest setting for a proposal you could instead take them to a spooky historic site and while exploring plan to get down on one knee when they least expect it. Here are a few location ideas, located throughout the country to plan a trip to:
- Whitby Abbey – The perfect spot, as it sits overlooking the quaint town of Whitby, where Dracula supposedly arrived by ship in Bram Stoker’s horror novel.
- Beeston Castle – This medieval site has perfect hideaways and spectacular viewpoints for that special moment.
- Canterbury Castle – This Norman fortress has pretty gardens to explore, perfect for a couple to walk through hand in hand while soaking up the mystery of the stone buildings.
At Halloween ghost walks are a popular activity for those who love all things spooky. Book a place on one of these in your local area and pop the question in between spotting spirits.
Use pumpkins to your advantage
What better symbol of Halloween is there than pumpkins? The large round vegetables are abundant in October and are the perfect tool for those planning a proposal.
You could carve out the question in two or three pumpkins and have these waiting for them, with a candle flickering inside or do something a little cheesy, such as beginning to carve the pumpkin, asking for their help and then leaving the ring inside for them to find!
Plan a spooky night in
Is your partner a huge fan of all things horror? Then plan a night in with an abundance of candles, their favourite horror movies and plenty of pillows to hide behind. Casually ask the question once the scare fest is over and then settle down to enjoy a few more snuggled up once they’ve said yes!
Arrange a fancy dress get together
What better way to get engaged than with all your friends and family, dressed up in their best Halloween themed garb, around you? Once the party has got going announce a toast then pop the question and ensure someone has a camera to capture the moment!
