3 Freaky Halloween Marriage Proposal Ideas

By guest blogger Mark Estrada, Robbins Brothers Marketing Assistant

October is not known for being the most romantic month; however that didn’t stop the Pumpkin King from finding the next Mrs. Skellington and it shouldn’t stop you. So if you’re into it, here are some Halloween proposal ideas to make sure your proposal doesn’t end up as the Nightmare before Christmas.

Haunted Maze Proposal
You know her better than anyone else, and a mischievous smile has started to curl your lips. The idea here is to set up a haunted maze just for her, and right when you have her where you want her jump out and slam that ghoulish knee to the ground! Hopefully the slap is met with a follow up kiss and embrace, if not you probably knew better.

Trick or Treat
Do not give the ring to a complete stranger and expect to ever see it again. Now that we have that disclaimer out of the way, consider giving the ring to a complete stranger or just someone your potential fiancée doesn’t know. After you’ve set up the proposal proceed to trick or treat ending up at this stranger’s house. When the unsuspecting ring bearer answers the door, have your girl say “trick or treat” and have the person hand your girlfriend the ring. When she turns to you for an explanation she will see you poised and ready for her answer.

Grow old with me
In the spirit of Bad Grandpa, minus academy award nominated makeup, consider dressing up as old folks with your lady. I’m talking about grey wigs and horn rimmed glasses while the two of you enjoy whatever Halloween festivities are available. Once the day is done and coming to a close, pull your “Old Lady” aside, avoid breaking a hip and ask her to grow old with you.

Memorable Proposal At Seattle Mariners Baseball Game

Wade & Jessi of Seattle, WA. Just Engaged!

Wade & Jessi of Seattle, WA. Just Engaged!

Engagement Date  September 28, 2014
Wedding Date  TBD

How did you two meet?
We met in high school.

How did you propose?
I proposed to her at the final Seattle Mariners game of the season at Safeco Field. After the game I brought her down the stairs close to the field for pictures with my family and friends (about 15 close friends and family). And then afterwards got on one knee in the aisle and had the engagement box inside a cut-out baseball! Also with 2 dozen red and pink roses my friend helped me deliver.

Wade proposes to Jessi at the Seattle Mariners game! She said YES.

What does she love most about her engagement ring?
She loves the simplicity of the round solitaire. She also is a big advocate of the 6-prong placement, she feels it showcases the 1 carat colorless diamond even more! It’s something she will never get tired of looking at and it’ll never go out of style! Our grandchildren will agree how beautiful it is even 50 years from now.

Wade presented Jesse with a classic diamond solitaire engagement ring with side stones from Robbins Brothers.

I bought it from the Woodland Hills, CA store while on vacation, but then had it shipped to our home near the Seattle, WA downtown store and picked it up there while on a lunch break. I proposed on the 28th of the month because 28 is a special number to us. Having both our birthdays on the 28th of our months, so it was fitting for this to be the same for the engagement and hopefully the wedding too!

Wade and Jessi, welcome to the Robbins Brothers Family! Best Wishes for a Happy Engagement! Enjoy every single moment of it. xoxo

We married at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas in front of 50 guests. It was perfect.

What do you two love most about your Engagement & Wedding Rings?
I love the quality and also how bright the diamonds are. The rings got so many compliments and they are very comfortable to wear. I took one picture of the bride’s ring, which has been the most popular picture that our friends and family have asked us for. Thanks to everyone at the Torrance store for your help & well wishes!
