Cute Ways to Propose

If you are looking for proposal ideas and having your actual proposal go perfectly, then hiring The Heart Bandits is your best bet.  If you insist on trying to go at it alone however, then here are some fun ideas that you can incorporate into a grand proposal.

One such idea that could be used in a larger proposal is using a t-shirt that asks her to marry you.  This is a cute way of asking for her hand in marriage, especially if you wear the shirt under another outfit like a suit and reveal your proposal shirt at the right moment.  This is one of my favorite proposal videos and the guy has on a matching shirt as the backup dancers.  You can do something similar but not as extravagant as this.

If you have a dog then you can incorporate him into the proposal with something adorable like its own t-shirt as well.  Of course, make sure that Mr. Max doesn’t get freaked out by his new threads and start barking.

Another idea is to have a vintage sign waiting for her at her place.  Such a gesture is simple but yet very sweet and could be tailored to be very meaningful.

A Solider Proposes From Afghanistan

In mid-December I got an email from Bill, a solider deployed in Afghanistan.  He told us that he was madly in love with his girlfriend Cindy and that they had talked about marriage but he had never formally proposed.  He wanted to do something very special and romantic but did not know how he could make that happen from Afghanistan.  The Heart Bandits were very excited to help and plan the proposal!

We decided to have the proposal take place at the super swanky Hotel Indigo in Houston, Texas.   Cindy was greeted by the Sales Manager, Brian Stonesifer who conincidentally is on the Board of Directors for USO, a nonprofit organization that provides morale and recreational services to members of the US military.  She was also greeted by a violinist serenading her with love songs.  She was led into a dark room that was decorated with candles and roses and sat down in front of a projected presentation that we put together for Bill.  The presentation showed pictures of Cindy and Bill and the final picture was of Bill on bended knee asking for Cindy’s hand in marriage.   What a beautiful proposal for a beautiful couple.  Congratulations Bill and Cindy!

The Cleveland Texas newspaper was there to capture it all.  See the article here

Leonesse Cellars Winery, Temecula

My fiancé and I had the pleasure of visiting the romantic Leonesse Cellars Winery.  This is the  best kept secret in Temecula, CA. that I refuse to keep a secret. The word Leonesse means Village of Dreams and could not be more fitting.  This is the most beautiful winery in Temecula hands down and it is perfect for a romantic date, a proposal, and even a wedding!  I have been to Temecula a few times and have never been to this winery.  Now I see what I have missed out.  Here is why Leonesse is so romantic and why you MUST go!

The View

Leonesse’s tasting room is on top of a 20 acre hilltop vineyard in Temecula Wine Country.  The views of the Palomar Mountains and vineyards are amazing.  It is the perfect backdrop for a first date, first kiss, a marriage proposal, or a wedding!

It is Interesting

Leonesse offers a hosted wine tour.  It is so fascinating!  You will learn all about how wine is made while cuddling up next to your honey and sipping on wine.  You will be escorted in to the exclusive members only wine tasting room which has oak barrels all around the room.  It is dim and lit with chandeliers and is oh so romantic.  They rent out the space for special events so keep that in mind.  Next, you get to walk up in to the vineyard which is a very neat experience if you have not done that before.

*If you are on a first date, impress her by studying the wine making process.  They ask you questions about it on the tour and if you get it right you get a free tasting!

It is Beautiful

The wine tasting room is gorgeous on the inside and out.  They also have a VIP tasting area that looks like a very elegant old dining room.  You literally feel like you are sitting down at someone’s dinner table.

The Wine is Amazing

Their wine is very, very good and they have an amazing Port wine!  Leonesse grows their own fruit right there in the vineyard and can taste the difference.  Don’t forget to sign up for their Wine Club for extra special privileges and great wine.

The Staff

The staff really goes out of their way to give you a great experience.  Our tour guide was very friendly and was happy to take our pictures throughout the tour.

Leonesse is romantic and a must-see in Temecula.  Let The Heart Bandits help you plan a romantic date or marriage proposal at Leonesse Cellars Winery.
