We’ve seen plenty of creative marriage proposals over the years, but this one might top them all. To anyone planning their proposal right now, just know that the bar has been raised to “Convince your significant other to wear their engagement ring for a year without realizing it.”
Terry and Anna are an Australian couple in their early 30’s. Back in 2015, as the couple’s first anniversary was approaching, Terry began to hatch his plan. He started by hand-carving a wooden necklace–which is already a great gift!
But that was just the beginning. Little did Anna know that hidden inside the necklace was an engagement ring. Terry gave Anna the necklace, and she wore it for eighteen months! Not only did she wear it, she apparently wore it every day. Anna posed for a year and a half’s worth of photos, all with the necklace prominently displayed.
Then, on a vacation to Smoo Cave in Scotland, Terry decided to pop the question. Finally, the ring’s secrets were revealed!
Unsurprisingly, she said yes!
(Side note: they always say “yes” in these types of articles. Have you ever seen an article like this where they lay out a creative marriage proposal and the person just said, “Nah.” That would be quite the bummer!)
Terry told the Daily Mail that giving gifts like this is totally his style. “I had always loved the idea of giving someone a gift where they didn’t know its true value.” Solid gift-giving strategy.
For her part, Anna was delighted, but also a bit angry over the fact she was wearing an expensive ring for a year and a half. After Anna said yes, the next thing she told Terry was “I could have lost it, you f***ing idiot!”
You can check out the full video below. And in the meantime, tell us, is this your idea of a creative and fun proposal, or does the idea of risking an engagement ring like this give you heart palpitations? Little bit of both, if I’m being totally honest. Just glad it all worked out!
