The Perfect Valentine's Day Proposal

As John Paul Young once sang, love is in the air, every sight and every sound - so why not make the most of these rose-coloured spectacles and pop the big question.

But it's Valentine's Day, so now is not the time for a simple proposal. You need to put the effort in, you need to make plans, you need to make plans for your plans, and you need to make it impossible for her to say anything other than "YES!"

Keep reading for the best ways to pop the big question.

A trip to never forget

Without sounding too cheesy or being too cliché, a trip away to a romantic city can make for the perfect setting to pop the question. And let's face it, you're only planning on doing this once, so you need to make the most of it.

Paris in front of the Eiffel Tower, Venice on a gondola, New York on top of the Empire State Building - they're popular engagement destinations for a reason.

It's better with some privacy

If a city escape is too run-of-the-mill, get away from the hustle and bustle, find a serene and secluded (and romantic) location and pop the question in perfect privacy. A marriage is the union of two people, so why do you need a thousand and one onlookers when you get down on one knee?

A beautiful, early spring forest, the sound of the running water near a picturesque waterfall, looking out over the vast oceans on a clifftop - all perfect places to ask the one you love for their hand in marriage.

Really make their heart flutter

For the adrenaline junkies, why not pop the question whilst sky diving, white water rafting, rock climbing or wing walking? She will definitely not be expecting that!

Her heart will already be racing, asking her to marry you is sure to make it skip a beat. Who's going to say no to this?

Sometimes, the best plans are unplanned

Really surprise her by doing the unexpected. Whether it's popping the question in front of the telly with your favourite takeaway or in bed before the morning breath kicks in, sometimes the simpler things in life are the best.

Where better to confirm your love for each other than in the comfort of your own home, the home you will be sharing together, the home you will be starting your new lives in.
