With the advent of social distancing it has become increasingly difficult for couples to go on traditional dates which may be the location of a proposal. Although they can’t go on planned vacations or even out to a restaurant, couples are finding ways to share time with their loved ones. Some couples who were ready and planning to pop the question have even taken this time of social distancing to continue with their plan in new and unique ways. After all being with the one you love is the most important thing.
An At Home Vacay
If you were planning a trip with your significant other that has been cancelled, you can still create the trip at home for an adorable DIY destination engagement like this couple. After a trip to Paris fell through the groom recreated the eiffel tower to get down on one knee in front of the famous landmark.
If you were planning to propose in front of all your friends and family you still can with a simple Zoom call! Involve all your friends and loved ones from afar to the special moment in your own home. The call can even be set-up discreetly to have everyone viewing in silence before the question is asked. Or involve the family directly into the proposal with signs or a song.
If you’re not currently living or quarantining with your spouse a proposal becomes a little more difficult. However home delivery is one way to create a small or grand gesture that they’ll love. Send flowers, balloons or something special to your sweetheart and when they call you up ask them the question. This couple chose adorable doughnuts to ask the big question.

A Romantic Picnic

The simplist proposal can still be the sweetest. Bachelor Ben Higgins asked for his finacees hand in her parents back yard with their assistance. Although there were no bells and whistles the question still ended with a resounding ‘yes.’

From my first date in life to the moments in between they all led me to getting down on one knee in front of you @jessclarke_ . This weekend I asked Jessica to give me the honor of being her partner for life. She said YES! I now officially have the most beautiful, kind hearted, supportive, well intentioned person to spend life with! Our adventurous ride through life together is just starting @jessclarke_ ! Let’s celebrate…but for now let’s stay home and isolate. Photo cred: @r_petey (ps: if you are wondering and feeling the need to be critical about us breaking isolation this was all done at her home in her back yard with the help of her family who we have been in the same house as “stuck” for over a week. There has been no contact with the outside world.)
A Rooftop Engagement
If you live in a condo or apartment building the most romantic space may be at the top of your building. While parks are closed to the public this outdoor space is perfect for a romantic evening. Bring your loved one up for a special surprise. Moonlight, a dinner and popping the question are all it takes for a romantic evening ending in engagement.
