Proposals are getting pretty elaborate these days, and yes we have a hand in that. Our website is filled with flash mobs, serenades, and other creative and romantic proposal ideas. This can all feel a little intimidating if you are on a budget, but there are some great ways to make a romantic proposal without breaking the bank. Delve into your crafty side, get out some photos, and see what you can come up with, with the help of these ideas.
Jars of Love
Check out this link for an easy and inexpensive way to turn your printed photos into a creative, old fashioned looking display. Using mason jars, cooking oil, dried flowers, and photographs, you can make this rustic chic proposal all on your own!
Love on a String
Create a casual and fun display of your love with these cute clothes line photo displays. Use clothes pins to attach the photos to the twine, and hang them anywhere. You could hang them on a wall, or string them between trees in your yard, or in your favorite park. The possibilities are endless with this decorating idea, and she will love having something to keep to remind her of the proposal.
Write it on the Board
Get a small chalkboard, or a series of them, and write romantic quotes on them. You can really let your creativity loose here, using different colors of chalk, and choosing to use quotes, or your own words, as well as whether to include drawings or just text. If you want to keep these after the proposal, invest in a clear fixative spray to make them permanent. (Remember to use the spray outdoors, or in a very well ventilated area).
Whatever you do, remember that it is not about how much money you spend, or if your proposal is trending on social media. It’s about your love for each other, and proposing in a way that is true to you both.
