Guess what happens when two Lewis Carroll fans get engaged? They do an Alice in Wonderland-themed engagement announcement of course! These two lovebirds partnered up with Fandi.es in Valencia, Spain for the shoot, and I have to say that the whole thing turned out rather wonderfully.

This custom ring box is the work of Paul Pape who has turned a plastic model kit for a Farscape DRD into an adorable ring box. He painted it up, added some lights, and then made a special magnetic key that pops open a panel in the DRD to reveal the ring hidden inside. How could anyone say no to this proposal?

skyrim amulet of mara

Skyrim has a lot of options on the roleplaying side of the game. Your character can be friendly and flirt and can even enter into a marriage with another character if the Amulet of Mara is present. It unlocks certain dialogue that’s not otherwise available. So, when Sarah Briody’s boyfriend wanted to propose and incorporate their mutual love of Skyrim into the special occasion, he gave Sarah an Amulet of Mara first.

Sarah told Kotaku:

“He gave me the amulet and while I recognized what it was—it didn’t really click as to WHAT it was. I put it on and he started to smile from ear to ear. Then he said:

‘Is that an Amulet of Mara? I’m surprised someone like you isn’t spoken for.’

“Then it finally registered that he was proposing! He got down on one knee and slipped the ring on my finger.”

D’aww! As you can see from the picture above, she of course said yes.

Geeks are quite creative when it comes to memorable events in their lives—especially weddings and proposals. For the most hardcore fans, ring boxes and even the engagement rings themselves get specialized with a geeky theme.

I’m not sure the path to wedded bliss involves convincing someone to buy an engagement ring by promising them an Xbox One, but this jeweler thinks otherwise. Perrywinkles will send you out the door with a new Xbox One console with the purchase of any engagement ring featuring a 3/4 carat center stone. This offer only runs through the end of the month, so better get a move on if you want to game at your engagement party.

wedding proposal

There is nothing wrong with a simple and classic wedding proposal, but I bet proposals like Victor’s make other people step up their game. He worked with JHM Productions and several Hawaii costuming groups to create an epic proposal video with nods to Star Wars, Ghostbusters, Captain America, and more. It took “months of shooting and weeks of editing” and included more than 50 people. Wow. The investment of time shows in the finished video – it looks slick.

And by the way, she said yes. Naturally.

Check out the epic short video after the break.

Well, gee, I don’t think a girl could really say no to a Predator wedding proposal. Zhao Ming is the man behind the Predator mask and he arranged this whole proposal for his girlfriend of four years, Zhu Wenjing. It all took place in a bar in Changchun, China with a couple of Star Wars characters, Bumblebee, a StarCraft marine and medic, and a Protoss High Templar in attendance. Unsurprisingly, she said yes.

This is how redditor hshshshshshshs proposed to his girlfriend. Hopefully this just means that they are both huge fans of Breaking Bad, not that they aspire to having a meth lab in the basement of their home one day.

This Despicable Me minion ring box is the latest creation by Paul Pape. It’s a fantastic representation of the little yellow guys, but you have to wonder what the guy that pops the question with this particular ring box has in mind. Is he looking for a life long partner, or is he just recruiting minions so he can take over the world?
