MANILA, Philippines – Since Youtube came along, we have become privy to some of the most creative wedding proposals the world over. 2013 saw its fair share of wacky “will-you-marry-mes,” and continues to prove that getting on bended knee in a fancy restaurant just isn’t enough any more.
Here are 7 must-watch proposals:
The Binondo food walk proposal
Food walks around Old Manila are fun in themselves, but one guy decided to make the trip really worth his while! Chances are, this girl would hold a special place in her heart for siopao, hopia, and lumpia from now on.
The most self-centered, over-produced proposal ever
Orchestrating a surprise wedding proposal is definitely one of the sweetest things you can do, but as with any well-intentioned plot, things can go overboard. Do you think this guy was doing it more for the Youtube hits?
The Big Bad Biker proposal
Even the biggest, baddest tough guys have a soft and squishy side, too! Case in point: This heart-melting proposal by a biker gang right in the middle of the freeway! Talk about being taken for a ride!
The IKEA flash mob proposal
Even places as seemingly dull as a furniture warehouse can make the most romantic of settings. Chosen because it was the site of the couple’s first meeting, this IKEA branch has definitely set itself apart.
The fake hostage-taking proposal
This one got some people pretty annoyed, or relieved that nothing truly dangerous happened. Do you think it was cute and clever, or was the stunt too risky for its own good?
The proposal 30,000 feet above ground
You can sweep your lover off her feet, but have you ever tried it 30,000 feet from the ground? This video is proof that even a super-cramped airplane aisle is no match for a good flash mob.
The X-Factor USA proposal
If your loved one decides to audition on the X-Factor with you – despite the horrible voice – just so he could propose to you before millions of televiewers, the answer is pretty simple: YES.
