Budgeting is a conscious effort we need to make when wedding talks begin, especially to ensure you all get that dream day. Giving this, why not try an almost cost free proposal idea of building a treasure hunt for your lovely partner to be? Not only will this ensure that you keep them on their feet, giddy and in anticipation, but, it also promises to deliver.

Place the cards in each place and ready steady go... The idea is magical, it allows you to take your partner on a journey through memories and happy times as well as walk your way up to the new and upcoming.

Roundhay, Golden Acre, Ilkley Moores or Tropical World are ideal places for this wonderful love gesture.
Pop the question high in the sky - Hot Air Balloon Picnic

A picnic in a hot air balloon is an amazing gesture and declaration of love. With more than 25 years flying experience, you're guaranteed to have an incredibly unique experience whilstBalloon Rides gracefully fly you across the whole of Yorkshire and Lincolnshire.

The picnic allows you to add your own personal touch, whilst the balloon offers privacy and extravagance all in one. - You really would be on cloud 9 with this one.
Getting high off helium filled balloons
Finally, if flying in a balloon seems too adventurous, how about toning it down a scale? Everyone knows that celebrations call for decorations and well it's only fitting that we celebrate a proposal with a Big Bang. Why not set a room up full of helium filled balloons and attach a ring to the end of one of them? Imagine walking into a room filled with colour and brightness only to find a sparkling wonder dangling off the end. Talk about only in the movies! To add that extra 'umph' why not keep them blindfolded till they arrive? This would put the anticipation level to a sky high and the results would be about as bright as the room you have filled with balloons. You could even pop the question with a mouth full of helium - one for the books right!? Now the room you choose to do this in is important, it could be done privately at home or at one of your favourite local restaurants. We know someone who did proposed at Salvos in Leeds and said it went well. His advice is to ask the Waiters to help you out a bit if you decide to go for the latter and pick a time when you know the restaurant is not going to be full with hungry diners.

Obviously, it is all about the effort you put in, ultimately you can choose the most simplest way to propose or dream of the most theatrical proposition, at the end of the day, it all comes down to making it personal, which is what all amazing proposals have in common.
