Marriage Proposal Ideas in Melbourne


A marriage proposal is one of the most important, memorable moments of your life. In Melbourne, Australia, there are exciting excursions that would surprise your future bride and secluded romantic spots where you can sneak away a private moment, depending on your preference. For your proposal, reflect on your relationship and create a significant moment that represents the two of you as a couple. If the pressure to think of an original, special idea is too stressful and you're stumped for good ideas, consider these ideas for creating a proposal that your future spouse will love to tell everyone about.

Overnight Yacht Cruise

  • Sail away on a sunset cruise. When the moment is right, raise a flag on the ship that says "Will You Marry Me?" and present your future wife with an engagement ring. An antipasto platter and wine is included with the cost of the overnight cruise. You then can spend the night on the luxurious yacht. As of 2010, the engagement cruise package costs $695 when booked through wedding planning company Freeman X Weddings.

Helicopter Flight

  • You and your girlfriend board a helicopter for an overview of the city after sipping on champagne in the VIP lounge. While focusing on the breathtaking view, she may not even notice that you have pulled a ring out of your pocket and are getting ready to ask her to marry you above the city lights. You can also arrange with the pilot to fly to a secluded spot where you can ask her to marry you in private. For two people, the cost is $500, as of 2010.
