A proposal happening any day of the year is amazing, but one that has been happening (and stayed a surprise) for 365 days, now that’s just incredible. That’s what Dean did for his lucky lady Jennifer. Dean wanted to get married 8 months into the relationship but knew it was too early to ask. Instead, he decided he would ask one year later, on her 26th birthday. For every day leading up to that year, Dean made a video clip and on the big day showed her a video of him holding up a sign, dated with each day of the year, counting down the last 365 days. Check out his year-long proposal here.

megan and john | THe Best Proposal Ever

Best Scavenger hunt proposal

A fan favorite for three years now, Megan and John’s proposal is a classic (and possibly the most epic scavenger hunt proposal of all time). John got Megan out under the guise of a photoshoot for his company. When she got there, instead of a camera waiting for her, it was a note sending her and her friends all over town. Clues met them at every stop, getting their nails done, having drinks, and visiting key locations in Megan and John’s relationship. See the scavenger hunt everyone’s talking about here.
