In this modern day and age, simply getting down on knee and asking your girlfriend to marry you just doesn’t seem to cut it anymore. Just like everything else in our time, marriage proposals are getting more and more extreme and extravagant, from crazy-long YouTube video proposals to flash mobs, all in an attempt for the most original way to get down on one knee. And that’s just for normal people. Imagine what creative ideas celebrities can come up with, with their never-ending bank accounts and equally never-ending connections. Well now, you don’t have to wonder; find out how these 10 celebrities proposed to their significant others, some of which are a little wacky, but mainly, just plain lavish. A girl can always dream.
Axl Rose to Erin Everly
This proposal lacks a lot of romance, but it sure is unconventional. Guns N’ Roses front-man, Axl Rose came home early one morning, at 4 a.m to be precise, and proposed to his girlfriend Erin Everly. But don’t be mistaken, he didn’t say the typical gushy stuff one would expect. Instead, he told her, “Marry me or I’ll kill myself.” An ultimatum… how incredibly romantic!
Jordan Bratman to Christina Aguilera
Jordan Bratman, a music exec, proposed to pop-sensation Christina Aguilera while on vacation in California. He filled their beautiful hotel room with nothing but rose petals and gift boxes, each of which had a present and poem attached. The last box had a five-carat ring, and Bratman got down on one knee as she opened it.
Brady Smith to Tiffani Thiessen
As an artist, it was only natural that Brady Smith propose to his actress girlfriend, Tiffani Thiessen in the most artistic way possible. Before popping the big question, he handed her a hand-illustrated book, all about the couple’s relationship and time together. He then got down on knee, and she said yes. How cute!
Pink to Carey Hart
Pink is undoubtedly a little wacky, so it comes as no surprise that she asked her boyfriend, Carey Hart for his hand in marriage, and not the other way around. As a motocross star, Pink only found it appropriate to ask the question during one of Hart’s races. While he was entering the third lap, Pink held up a sign that read “Will you marry me? I’m Serious!” Needless to say, he pulled over and said yes.
Bill Rancic to Giuliana DePandi
As someone who loves aviation, it seemed only natural that Bill Rancic took his girlfriend, Giuliana DePandi out for a helicopter ride above Chicago. After a limo ride took her to a helipad, Rancic was waiting for her, holding a box of her favorite pizza and a bottle of champagne. It wasn’t until they were well above Chicago, and could see all the holiday lights lit up, that Rancic popped the question. That is definitely a romantic proposal.
Nick Cannon to Mariah Carey
Nick Cannon not only proposed to singer, Mariah Carey on one occasion, he popped the question twice. While on the rooftop of her Manhattan apartment, Cannon got down on one knee, asking her with a 17-carat diamond hidden inside a ring pop candy. As if that wasn’t cute enough, a few days later, Cannon whisked his fiance away for a private helicopter ride, where he re-proposed.
Dean McDermott to Tori Spelling
Dean McDermott asked former Beverly Hills: 90210 star, Tori Spelling to be his wife on Christmas Eve in Toronto, Canada. But he didn’t just pop the question in any regular way. McDermott asked her while at a Christmas tree farm, where he had twinkling lights laid out for half a mile, which led to a table for two, surrounded by beautifully decorated Christmas trees. The couple rode in a horse-drawn carriage and he gave Spelling a diamond and sapphire ring.
Tom Cruise to Katie Holmes
While in Paris, the most romantic city in the world, Tom Cruise proposed to his girlfriend, Katie Holmes after just two months of dating. Of course, we wouldn’t expect anything less from the Mission Impossible legend. But to make things just a little more extravagant, Tom didn’t just do so on any Parisian street. Instead, he asked her at the Eiffel Tower. Lucky girl!
Kanye West to Kim Kardashian
Kanye West just couldn’t ask Kim Kardashian to be his wife, in just any normal way –he had to rent out the entire AT&T Park for the night and the Chicago symphony, all while having the words “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!” appear on the massive jumbo-tron. After blindfolding Kim and bringing her on the field, he dropped to one knee and asked her, as the symphony played in the background and the couple’s family and friends poured in for congratulations. Although we do agree that it was a pretty sweet way to propose, we wish he would’ve spelled properly.
Seal to Heidi Klum
To ask for his beautiful model girlfriend’s hand in marriage, singer Seal took Heidi Klum away to the Rockies via helicopter, where he had a private igloo made just for the two of them, decked out with champagne, roses, candles and a delicious meal. As the helicopter departed, the two were left atop a mountain in Whistler, 15, 000 feet high, where Seal proposed in their custom-made igloo.
