For married couples, the story behind those "she said yes!" and "I'm marrying my best friend" Insta posts is an extra special one — after all, it marks the moment that their happily ever after begins. Planning such a momentous occasion is a super personal matter, and for some, popping the question at home makes a lot more sense than an elaborate public scene. An intimate living room proposal can still be romantic AF — and to prove it, I rounded up a handful of at-home proposal stories that are low-key magical.
There are lots of perks to popping the question at your own pad. For one, it's a super comfortable, relaxed setting where both partners can express the full spectrum of their emotions in private. Not to mention, home also often has sentimental value in the relationship.
Amid the coronavirus outbreak, many couples are quarantining or at least practicing social distancing, which has obviously meant adjusting proposal plans due to logistics. Fortunately, it seems that hasn't stopped them from pulling out all the stops and making it a memorable moment. If you got engaged at home (or you're dreaming of an at-home proposal), you're in good company. In 2017, Prince Harry popped the question to Meghan Markle on a quiet night at home in their cottage (while casually roasting a chicken, I might add). If an at-home proposal is good enough for (former) royalty, it's good enough for me.
As they say, home is where the heart is — and TBH, these at-home proposal stories serve as the perfect proof.
