Our Favorite Celebrity Proposals

Now that life is beginning to return to normal for most of us, it’s a good time to think about our futures. The end of lockdowns is allowing us to spend time with our significant others. If the relationship survived the biggest challenge of our generation, maybe it’s time to think about getting engaged. In this article, we’re going to list our favorite celebrity proposals.

For a long time, winter has been a favorite time to make an engagement proposal, to the extent that it’s thought of as the “unofficial engagement season.” We don’t think this is surprising, given that during winter we spend more time with the people we love. And, this year many people will make up for the lost time. 

However, this isn’t the biggest reason it is so popular to get engaged in winter: while summer vacations tend to be alone with just an immediate family, winter vacations often involve larger family gatherings. Maybe we’re going to see our parents, or it could be the grandparents coming over as well. Anytime that family gathers, it’s easy to think about expanding the family with a new spouse and (hopefully) children. At the same time, we can also get help finding out what gemstones are the best option for the ring. To give you some proposal ideas, here are some that involved A-list celebrities.

1. Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom

We think that Orlando Bloom’s proposal to Katy Perry is a great example of how to succeed even when the proposal isn’t perfect. As described by Katy Perry, the proposal was a flop: but it succeeded. It seems that Bloom decided to take Perry up in a helicopter. Meanwhile, he was so nervous he knocked the champagne bottle over and ripped his dinner jacket! Talk about nerves!

Fortunately, Perry wasn’t afraid to accept the proposal. Soon, the helicopter landed at the family party that had already been arranged. That’s right, Bloom had gone far beyond proposal celebration ideas. He had involved a bunch of family and friends. Perry was gifted with one of the most beautiful oval engagement rings we’ve seen: a halo design with center ruby, in yellow gold. Absolutely gorgeous, and unique as well.

2. Sabrina Dhowre and Idris Elba

For the most classic of celebrity proposals with a twist, check out the Sabrina Dhowre and Idris Elba proposal. Elba, a budding British movie director, decided it was a great idea to propose just before curtain time on his first world premiere. Although the forum chosen was very public, Elba’s approach was classic. He dropped down on one knee and presented Dhowre with the most classic of engagement rings for women. She, of course, said yes. The crowd cheered.

As for the ring, there aren’t a ton of pictures. But we do know it’s one of the larger round diamond engagement rings for women we’ve seen. Which just comes to show that even celebrity proposals involve classic choices. Both the proposal and the diamond engagement ring itself are classics that can inspire anyone.

3. Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber

Who doesn’t enjoy watching young love birds? Hailey and Justin are well-known to have been friends for years. Then, they were on and off again romantically for a while. After being separated for two years, the sweethearts were reunited. When it came to the proposal, Bieber decided it was time during a vacation with Baldwin in the Bahamas. There is some argument whether they got officially engaged in a crowded restaurant or in private–it depends on who you ask. We think that he asked her in private, then decided to make a public display later.

For a couple of celebrities, these two are relatively traditional. In fact, they are open about having Christian faith. Maybe that’s why Justin chose one of the most classic engagement proposal ideas out there: at a restaurant. Plus, he chose a magical Caribbean resort to declare his love. Either way, you interpret their different proposal stories, he presented Hailey with one of the biggest oval engagement rings we’ve seen: it’s ten carats!

4. Jordan Fisher and Ellie Woods

Like Hailey and Justin, the duo: Jordan and Ellie are the result of a longstanding friendship. After being together for a long time, Jordan decided it was high time to put a ring on it. So, he got Ellie to come down to his parents’ beach house. There, while the couple was listening to a friend sing their favorite song, he went down on one knee. Since they’re both from Alabama, where American tradition runs deep, you can only imagine the ring coming out of a pocket. We love the backdrop of the backyard pond and the seashell decorations. 

We also think it’s great that Jordan bought a custom-designed ring. It is 2.75 carats, featuring a pear shaped stone. There are a small halo and accent stones on the shank. In other words, it is a true classic for an all-American couple. Best of all, this size of the ring is affordable for a much wider variety of people.

5. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

For last, this is the celebrity proposal to top them all. Apparently, Kanye took a blindfolded Kim to a baseball stadium. He had an orchestra playing her favorite music and people close to the couple hiding out in the dugout. At some point, he had the blindfold removed. Employing the stadium announcement system as a proposal sign, he dropped on one knee while the jumbotron stated “marry me.” Of course, she said “yes.” Kanye then presented her with a humongous sparkler. Featuring a cushion cut stone, the solitaire was one of four diamond engagement rings that Kanye worked on with the jeweler.
