Wedding Singer Proposal

I’m sure you can put together a list of your favorite fight scenes, car chases and thrilling moments from the movies you’ve seen with a moment’s notice. But how about listing some of the best proposals? If you think about it, there are a lot of diamond rings being handed out on the silver screen.

Here is a list of some of the best around in case you need a little inspiration.

Now or never: Runaway Bride

If you’ve never seen the movie, you can draw from the title that Julia Roberts character, Maggie Carpenter, has a difficult time with commitment. After running away from five marriages on the day of each wedding, Maggie finally finds the man of her dreams in Gene (Richard Gere), she hands him her running shoes and gives him a speech about how if they get together they will both have struggles to overcome but if she doesn’t take that step she will regret it forever. It is a pretty touching moment and deserves to top the list. It will have you asking yourself, “am I ready to take that step?”

Ignorance is bliss: Rocky 2

“I was wondering if you wouldn’t mind marrying me very much?” That’s how Rocky proposed to Adrian. It wasn’t the smoothest delivery, but it was Rocky and it was real. They were walking through the zoo in the snow and Rocky’s face was all bruised up. It has to make your list as one of the best movie marriage proposals because not many people can pull that off.

See the video:

The love song: The Wedding Singer

Robbie Hart, played by the ever-amusing Adam Sandler, used his musical talent and sense of humor to sing his way into the heart of his love. Julia Sullivan (Drew Barrymore) was on a plane ready to leave but after hearing the song Robbie wrote for her, there was no chance she was leaving. You have to admit it’s a pretty creative and touching way to propose. If you’re planning out a way to pop the question to your significant other, don’t be afraid to incorporate your own talents into it.

Marriage is a beautiful thing and while deciding to propose is a major step for the both of you, it should be a joyful and memorable experience. Have some fun with it and do it someplace you know will be special. Oh, and don’t forget the diamond ring!

  1. I love those proposals… I was quite boring: I proposed during a sundowner in Kenya between the elephants and other wildlife…
