I think this is such a great idea. This is so different. I don't know how many men I have reading this, but all of you women out there, you can put the idea out there for him. Men, if your reading this, a proposal book would be a huge surprise, and something she would remember forever.
Why Not Pop the Question in Print?
Some proposals happen on a mountain top. Some happen while she's brushing her teeth. Whether you prefer the extravagant or the subtle, you are going to want to commemorate this milestone of life. That's why the idea of publishing a proposal into a printed Blurb book is so appealing. Here are a few ideas of how to craft the most creative "Will You Marry Me?" chronicle.
- Write a children's book where the main characters are you and your beloved. Print the book with Blurb, then have it put onto the shelves at your local library. Take her on a reading date and "stumble" across the book. (Just remind her that you're in the library and she'll have to tone down those shrieks of joy.)
- Create a beautiful photo essay of your relationship. Include photos of where you met, special pieces from your first date, scenes from your favorite events. Use the pictures to tell a silent story of your love and then complete this happy ending with a picture of you and a sign asking for her hand.
- Is your beloved a foodie? Make her a Blurb cookbook of love! Ask your family and friends for their favorite recipes and put them together into one book, complete with pictures. Add in your own recipe of love with ingredients that include moments from your courtship. Just be sure that when the relationship is fully baked, you ask about the final course - a lifetime of sweet memories.
