With almost 30,000,000 views on YouTube, this is one of the most popular viral proposals of all time. What make’s Isaac’s proposal so special isn’t just the amount of time and effort that went into making such a flawless production, but also the people who were involved.

On such a special occasion, including the most important people in your lives is an excellent way to make the moment even more spectacular.


2.      Blake and Carly’s Surprise Proposal


Everyone wants his or her proposal to be a surprise. The problem that many people run into is that planning a big night of romance out of the blue can often throw up signals, especially if you have already discussed the topic of marriage with your fiancé. Blake found the perfect way to surprise his girlfriend by hiding the real gift of the engagement ring inside of another gift. Opening the other gift first even allowed for her family to videotape the proposal without raising her suspicions.


3.      She Planned Her Own Proposal and Didn’t Even Know It!!


Tyson also found the perfect way to surprise Hayley with his romantic proposal. By distracting her with the thought that she was planning a surprise for him, she never imagined that the real surprise was for her. You don’t need the cameras or the song to make a moment like this romantic and special. The surprise is enough to make the moment absolutely perfect.


4.      Cutest Marriage Proposal You’ll Ever See


When you choose to spend the rest of your life with a person, you are sometimes making a commitment to share your life with others as well. If your future fiancé has a child, you should take every step possible to include him or her in the proposal. By including Eva in his proposal, Alex showed Olga that he was not only committed to being a husband for her, but also a father for Eva.


The most important thing to remember when you are planning your proposal is that the moment is ultimately for you and your future fiancé. It’s not for the YouTube audience or any other spectator. If you think the perfect proposal is a simply question during a quiet moment at home or while at dinner and a romantic restaurant then that is what you should do. Remember that it is the declaration of love and the choice to spend the rest of your life with someone that is the real driving force behind your proposal, not how much money you spend, how many cameras are there, or how big of a showcase you can put on. Years down the line, you will look back and see that the look on your loved one’s face as you asked the question was the most important and beautiful part of your proposal.
