10 Unique Singaporean Wedding Proposals

A wedding proposal is an act of courage and of love, one that you are hoping to commit only once in your life. It is the story you will be repeating at your wedding, to your children, a grand gesture of love is worth retelling through the ages. Here are 10 local wedding proposals that raise the bar. We laud them for their inventiveness, ingenuity and dedication, to go that extra mile for their beloved.


1) Just Like the Movies

Love can be just like the movies and that was the plan for Malcolm as he popped the question at Cathay after a movie screening as he compiled a video montage of his unique proposal to Grace, not just by asking for her hand in marriage but presenting to her different reasons, why she should marry him. He went all over Singapore to find the most random yet thoughtful assortment of people including his colleagues, JC buddies, even the owner of Grace’s favourite store and finally her parents and her grandma- anyone that mattered to them. Malcolm ‘discreetly’ shoving angpaos to his friends after they gave them his reasons added a humorous and personal touch to the entire proposal. In front of an entire audience, Malcolm went on bended knee while his friends held illuminated letters, forming ‘Will you marry me?’ at the back of the cinema. And Grace tearfully agreed.

2) This is the Story of How I Proposed to Your Mother

Following the format of How I Met Your Mother, Jerald made use of almost all the elements of the hit sitcom to propose to his girlfriend. Even coming up his with his own version of the theme song featuring his a cut out of his girlfriend and their friends. The best part was how he narrated the storyline; set in the hypothetical future of 2039 to his again, hypothetical children sitting on a couch, mimicking the running theme in How I Met Your Mother. Like the CBS award-winning show, this proposal deserves all the awards for originality and creativity.

3) Sparks Fly

It is a simple concept, combined with ingenuity, have your friends stand on the other side of the Singapore River forming the words ‘Will you marry me?’ with sparklers, while you stroll with your sweetheart on one side. Of course these mere movements are unable to be seen and translated into words without the help of a DSLR capturing the moment. When your girlfriend peers into the screen, she’ll immediately recognise the strange and seemingly random occurrence, as your doing. This proposal sure does give meaning ‘sparks fly’.
