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.
Scary, sweet or just plain unexpected, if you plan to propose on All Hallows’ Eve, make sure to share the experience here or pass your ideas on for the other Halloweenies out there looking for a Pumpkin Queen.
