6 Over-the-Top Engagement Ideas
Disney’s Fairy-Tale Engagement Package
Prepare to enter a fairytale world, one with glass slippers, a princess tiara, and your Prince Charming waiting with a glass of complimentary sparkling non-alcoholic champagne. As a part of the Walt Disney World Resort proposal package, you and your almost-betrothed will be whisked away to Cinderella Castle, where you’ll enjoy a romantic dinner and then dessert served with a sparkling engagement ring in an elegant glass slipper on a bed of rose petals (for obvious reasons, fairy tales are the best engagement ideas) . If you haven’t hit your princess limit by then, you’ll be whisked back to your hotel room where a princess-themed celebration will commence. Ladies, if your beau withstands a night full of fluffy pink pillows, tiaras, glass slippers, and countless other princess details, it’s safe to say you’ve found your real-life Prince Charming.
Pizza Hut’s $10 Dinner Box Proposal Package
Nothing says “I want you to be my wife” like a medium one-topping pizza, five breadsticks with marinara sauce, and ten cinnamon sticks with a sweet icing cup. At least, not according to the 10 pizza-loving romantics who dropped $10,010 this past Valentine’s Day to purchase Pizza Hut’s $10 Dinner Box Proposal Package. The package included a ruby-and-diamond engagement ring, limo service, flowers, fireworks, a photographer, videographer, and, to seal the deal, a $10 Dinner Box. After a picture-perfect evening, the happy couple can cheers their Coors Lights over a lukewarm pizza and lovingly smash icing-smothered cinnamon sticks into each other’s faces. How very romantic.
Fine Dining and Skydiving Proposal
After signing your life away on a waiver and handing over a cool $1,190, you and your boyfriend will take a leap of faith, quite literally, by jumping out of a perfectly good airplane over Australia’s Yarra Valley. While looking into each other’s cheek-flapping faces, a humongous sign will suddenly be released by a crew member reading, “Will you marry me?” Although sealing the proposal with a kiss might prove difficult, perhaps a thumbs-up would suffice. Upon reaching the ground and regaining sensation in your extremities, the couple gets to relax with a wine tasting and 5-star dining lunch. Talk about a whirlwind!
Cupcakes Gourmet’s Sparkling Red Velvet Cupcake
Cupcakes Gourmet, a Philadelphia-based bakery, offered a red velvet cupcake delicately topped with a sparkling 8-carat diamond ring, all for the modest price of $55,000. For a dessert that costs as much as a down payment on a house or a car or two, this diamond-encrusted treat better be really, really tasty.
Chicago White Sox Proposal

For a whopping $5,000, this uber-fan package includes an on-field proposal at U.S. Cellular Field during non-game days, a professional photo shoot, a champagne toast, limo service, flowers, and two VIP tickets for a future game.
