Happy Valentine’s Day lovebirds! Did you know that this one of the most popular days for marriage proposals? Yup! No big surprise there. In the spirit of the season, we have put together 10 Valentine’s Day proposal ideas that are sure to get the YES!

If you have a romantic or special way of how you two met, remind her of this day, get down on one knee and pop the question!

2. With something sweet

Buy her favorite dessert and spell out “will you marry me”.

3. At your favorite restaurant

Tell her that you made plans with a group of your friends but really make private reservations for the two of you at your favorite restaurant.

4. With photos

Put together a photo album or garland (like in this picture) including your most special moments. She will love reminiscing on all of the memories the two of you have. And now she can look forward to many more!

5. Romantic vacation

Take her on a short and sweet romantic getaway, even if it’s just for one night.

6. Something simple

If you and your girlfriend are the types who love to stay in, cuddle, and watch movies nothing says romantic like lighting candles, spelling out “will you marry me” with rose petals and buying her favorite box of chocolates.

7. Scavenger hunt

Take her to all of the places that are special to you and where you have been together, and end it with her finding you down on one knee.

9. Involve your pets

Nothing is cuter than this! Tie the ring onto their collar and have them bring it to your girlfriend along with a letter that says how much you love her.

10. Fill a room with balloons

Have a special note waiting for her in each balloon. Once she pops all of them and gets to the last one with the ring in it, get down on one knee and propose to her.
