Gaming Inspired Wedding Proposals: Thinking of popping the question? Along with the anxiety of whether your better half is going to say yes or not, there’s the stress of putting together the perfect proposal moment. While romantic dinners and scenic views can serve as a brilliant backdrop, they’re a bit old hat. If you’re thinking of getting hitched by a fellow video game enthusiast, take your inspiration from your favourite titles for a fresh twist. Need some ideas?
Below are 7 proposal ideas to get you started.
7 Esports & Gaming Inspired Wedding Proposals
1. Minecraft Marriage Proposals
Minecraft has a reputation as a kid-friendly game. However, according to the statistics, the average Minecraft player is a 24-year-old guy. If you and your other half are passionate about this sandbox title, it’s the perfect platform for popping the question. With its customizable mechanics, it’s easy to put together an in-game proposal in moments. However, you’ll be late to the table if you try this one. Romantic Minecraft players have been deploying this trick for more than a decade.
2. Dress as Their Favorite Video Game Character
This is one of the easiest ways to frame your marriage proposal around a video game theme. What legendary characters does your better half love? If you’re lucky, you might find yourself donning Geralt of Rivia’s witcher attire. If you’re not, you might have to grin and bear it as you pull on a Mario costume. The good news is that video game costume ideas aren’t hard to put together. You can pick up a full costume relatively cheaply or make an impromptu outfit from scratch.
3. Custom Engagement Rings
If you want the video game theme to continue long after the proposal, consider the jewellery you’re going to use. Fortunately, you have plenty of inspiration to turn to. Pretty much every RPG out there has at least one epic design to consider, with replicas easy enough to find online. If you’d rather have some fun with your proposal, you can even repurpose Sonic the Hedgehog’s golden rings.
4. Hide in a Note in a Game They’ve Been Expecting
Is your other half eagerly awaiting the next PS5 exclusive? Tell them you’ve got this one covered and order a copy for them. When it arrives, slip a handwritten proposal note in the case before carefully repackaging the game. They’ll already be riding a high when they open their mail, but that added extra is going to be the icing on the cake.
5. Draft in Some Help From Their Favorite Esports Player
If the two of you love watching esports, you probably already have a favourite team. Try touching base with the current roster via social media to see if they can aid you in your proposal efforts. Whether it’s a tweet on your behalf or a bespoke video to help grease the wheels, it’s a surefire way of increasing the odds of them saying yes. Do the two of you follow different teams? Head to 1337pro.com to familiarize yourself with the latest line-ups.
6. Propose at an Esports Tournament
If you and your partner are two of the 532 million people who watch esports regularly, you’re probably thinking of attending an esports tournament at some point. For video game obsessives, these events are thrilling enough as they are. However, you can make them even more memorable by asking the question there and then. If you’re not afraid of the spotlight, think about reaching out to event organizers to see if you can draft in the services of a tournament announcer to help you out.
7. Reach Out to Developers
This one’s a long shot, but worth trying if you know how to network and want a proposal moment that will live on long after the question has been asked. In 2018, hapless romantic Tyler Schultz reached out to Insomniac Games to help put together an unforgettable marriage proposal. The team at Insomniac gladly obliged and added an easter egg to Marvel’s Spider-Man. Sadly, Tyler’s girlfriend decided to call it quits on their relationship before the game could hit the shelves. Unfortunately, the proposal message couldn’t be patched out of the game until after it was released. If you are thinking of going this route, just make sure the two of you are in it for the long haul.
