Proposal in a Bottle
If you’re beach buffs, bury a proposal message in a
bottle before you head to the beach with your intended. Suggest that you build a sandcastle in the
same area and let her discover the bottle while digging. Pull the ring out as she reads the message.
Fourth of July Fireworks
There’s nothing more romantic than a fireworks
display to declare your love. Take your intended to
the local fireworks show this Fourth of July and get
down on one knee as the grand finale display begins.
You can even arrange to have “Will you Marry Me”
fireworks incorporated into the grand finale to really
sweep her off her feet.
Under The Sea
Take her for a fun day at your local
aquarium. Arrange in advance for the
divers to put on a proposal show inside
their biggest fish tank. Give them a
handwritten sign that says, "Will you
marry me?" and a favorite picture of the
two of you to hold up against the glass.
Then get down on one knee and tell her
you’re ready to take the plunge.

Picture Perfect
Steal her digital camera and head to her favorite local
outdoor spot. Bring a friend with you and have posters made with the words "will," "you," "marry" and
"me?" Have your friend photograph you holding
each one in a different position. Then, let her know
you borrowed her camera and ask her to upload
the photos.
W.Y.M.M? ;)
Before your special evening, have a friend snap a picture of you down on one knee with a sign
saying “Will You Marry Me?” with your camera phone.
Then take her to the same location and send the message at just the right moment. When she looks up from
her phone to see you on one knee with a diamond engagement ring, she’ll have no choice but to reply Y-E-S-!
Movie Star Proposal
Call your local movie theater and buy an add space
before the feature presentation. Then take her to see
that new romantic movie she’s been talking about all
week. As you’re cuddling in the back row snacking on
some popcorn, her jaw will drop when the screen
reads “Will You Marry Me Lisa?” You’ll get a big screen
kiss as you slide the ring on her finger in your very own
Happy Ending.
Real “Picture Perfect” Ramsey’s Proposal
Ramsey’s customer Ashe Ricks took his sweetheart for an
afternoon stroll in the French Quarter. As they made their way through
Jackson Square he suggested getting a caricature
drawing as a reminder of their day. As they sat there smiling hand in hand,
she had no idea she was posing for her engagement portrait. When the
artist finished, he revealed his masterpiece- it was a picture of Ashe down on
one knee holding out a beautiful Ramsey’s diamond engagement ring! When his girlfriend looked up Ashe
was ready on bended knee with his Ramsey’s diamond
engagement ring in hand.
* Ashe went ahead of time to find a local artist that
would be available at the time specified.
French Quarter Romance
Take her for a stroll through the French Market.
Then to a meal at your favorite French Quarter eatery. Pull out all the stops on this romantic day ending
with a carriage ride or a steamboat cruise down the
Mississippi. Make sure you pull her in close, because
she’ll go weak at the knees when you complete this
romantic moment with a Ramsey’s diamond
engagement ring.
King Cake Question
Have a custom King Cake made with your engagement ring instead of a baby. Prepare a romantic dinner for the two of you, finishing with a King Cake
dessert. When she finds the ring, thinking it’s the
piece with the baby, get down on one knee and
ask her to be your wife.
