9. The 10-Hour Epic Proposal

 

This unique 10-hour scavenger hunt proposal has to be one of the most mindblowing and memorable marriage proposal ideas we’ve ever come across. It starts with a note to the bride-to-be, stating, “Spoiler alert — if you complete the scavenger hunt then I will reward you by asking a very important life changing question.”


This is crazy:


What follows is a road trip in a limo, meeting friends from college, the spot where they first kissed, the restaurant they had their first date in, meeting her sister at the mall with money to buy a new dress for the occasion, a cocktail party with her friends and family and the final destination — the place they first met adorned with chandeliers hanging from trees in an enchanted mini woodland. And, of course, her boyfriend ready to propose.


It’s safe to say she said yes.
