It's finally time to pop the question! And we're sure you're aware that there are numerous ways to propose. But it's times like these when everything you know falls apart — don't worry, it's completely normal. Allow us to spark your imagination with a list of memorable marriage proposal ideas. The first step is to pick an idea you like and then personalize it for you and your future fiancée. Simple enough, right?
But first, let's talk about photography! You can hire a photographer to camouflage themself and capture the big moment paparazzi-style. You could also compose a ruse. Make them believe you're being photographed for one thing, then—bam!—you're down on one knee. Miami event photographers will have many ideas and will almost certainly know how to put them into action. You could pass it off as a styled shoot, claiming you got a free photo session, and the photographer could say they're putting together a posing or style guide and want you two to model, and so on. There are undoubtedly numerous ways to make it happen, so contact a photographer and discuss all of your proposal ideas.
There are great places to do outdoor proposals in Miami
1. Arrange a bohemian picnic and invite your partner to dress up.
2. Propose in the sunflower field in The Berry Farms.
3. Invest in large marquee letters and let them speak for themselves. You can do it in an open field, a park, or on the beach. You can also choose between sunrise and sunset.
4. Make the request on a rooftop during golden hour.
5. Hire out a plane to write “Will you marry me?” in the sky.
6. If you're from out of town, do it while you're on vacation in Miami.
