How To Propose With A Song
Wedding proposals can be hard work. Especially if you want that #ISaidYes moment to be absolutely magical. If you choose to ask for their hand in marriage with an original song about your love story, here are some of our favorite ways to make it a memory that will last.
Make it a surprise
We’re constantly listening to music– in the car, while working out, in the office and any other time we need to relax. For that reason, incorporating your custom song in a day full of music can be as simple as adding it to the end of their favorite playlist or surprising them during dinner. Even playing your song during a road trip when you plan on proposing at the destination can be a smooth transition. Any way you go with it, play on their expectations to make presenting your song a fun surprise!
Send them on a hunt
Send your loved one on a scavenger hunt, in which you give your future fiancé clues to bring them to the settings of some of your favorite moments, such as where you had your first date or where you said “I love you” for the first time. As the last clue, either give them the URL to your Story Homepage or have it playing at the final location. Fun, unexpected and just as personal as the song you had made, a scavenger hunt proposal will be a memory you’ll both cherish forever.
Make it public
If you’re going to a restaurant or bar to propose, ask the owner or DJ if you can make a special request and give them your song via phone or CD. See how long it takes your beloved to realize all the lyrics are about the two of you! You might want to call ahead to make sure the place will go along with it, but it’s sure to be a moment to remember.
Call in some extra help
If your significant other listens to the radio often during their commute, call their favorite station and ask if they’ll play a snippet of your song and propose to them on your behalf. It might take a little convincing for them to do it, but it’ll catch your fiancé-to-be totally off guard.
Use it as part of the celebration
If you’re still not sure how you want to pop the question with Songfinch, rather than using your custom song as a part of the proposal, make it a part of the celebration. After they’ve already said yes, pop some champagne and play your beloved the song to show just how much you love them. It’ll just reaffirm their decision when they hear your love story come to life.
These are just a few ways to propose with a custom song. With so many other fun and inventive ways to share your original song, be sure to show us how you unveiled yours with the hashtag #SongfinchReveal.
