@craigo:  I like the third idea best. You could also tell her you are going out for a nice dinner and then stop at a special spot along the way and maybe have a friend put some candles or something there. Ask her, then go to dinner and celebrate. 

My FI proposed in a special way before dinner and it was so much fun to get to the restaurant and have them all congratulate us. As soon as we sat down, our waiter came out with a bottle of champagne and took pictures for us and all that. It was perfect!

@craigo:  Oh I like your third/rethinking option!  Then you can go out to dinner to celebrate!  If you do go this route though make sure you tell the waiter and get a bottle of champy to celebrate 🙂

Third idea, for sure!  🙂  Or as a PP said, stop somewhere along the way – like an outdoor christmas lights display?

@craigo:  Yes, I agree with pp! The third option!

You know your lady best, and if you think she would not like the more public option then definitely do it privately before dinner. What a wonderful memory this will be.

My husband proposed one day when I got home after work, and then we went out to dinner. It was so much fun! First, we drove to tell our parents in person. Then we spent the whole dinner grinning at each other across the table. It was awesome.

@craigo:  Yep, I have to agree that the third idea is the best one! Especially if you’re pretty sure that she wouldn’t be into a more public proposal. Propose to her in the privacy of your home, and then go out for a really nice dinner. 🙂

@craigo:  Option 3, your rethinking thought up a great romantic idea!

I think you should stick with the third option as it is. If you think she’d feel awkward at all about a public proposal then I wouldn’t risk taking away from the moment. I was really happy my fiance proposed at home. Congrats in advance! 🙂

@craigo:  option 3. Hands down.  I told DH I did not want a restaurant proposal.  I also got my ring before a dinner and we had our picture taken there so now I look at it and say that was our first pic as an engaged couple.

Option 3 sounds so sweet!!  She gets an intimate, personal proposal and a nice dinner afterwards, that sounds lovely.  Since she doesn’t drink, maybe see if the restaurant has some sparkling cider?  Non alcoholic but bubbly and sweet 🙂

@craigo I was proposed to in a very similar way as the third and it was so special.  I would stay clear of the second, my FI runs a restaurant and says that proposals happen that way at least once a week and it’s very impersonal.  The third is just the two of you and will be a really intimate plus you will catch her off guard!

P.S. As a waiting bee, I’m always hoping that my BF is on here asking for advice but alas, I can tell you are not my BF lol
