1. Romantic Halloween Costume Proposal

Halloween is about dressing up as your favourite character, whether a TV show character, movie star, musician, or even a historical figure. 

You can be anything you want on Halloween. 

My favourite Halloween proposal ideas are those that put in a bit of effort. 

Dress up as your favourite character for Halloween.

Proposing on Halloween is fun and can be romantic, depending on which spooky proposal idea you run with.

But playing the part and dressing up could win you a few more points. 

If you are a couple that enjoys dressing up, I would use this to your advantage and tie in a couple’s costume proposal into a fun theme.

Choose a romantic couple you love this year, buy or make the costume and have them dress as this for Halloween. 

You can either reenact the proposals from the TV shows or movies if they got engaged on tv or come up with your spin. 

You can plan an intimate Halloween party when you get down on one knee with family and friends. 

Or you could take her out to a restaurant that encourages dressing up to propose.

2. Romantic Halloween Proposal Themed Date Night 

What not create a whole proposal theme night with Halloween in mind?

A Halloween-themed proposal is cool especial if you both love this spooky holiday. 

We have you covered if you need help planning the perfect Halloween date night. 

You can be creative with this one by planning something that ranges from cute to creepy, scary to safe- and everything in between. 

Make sure it’s the perfect Halloween date night for you to propose.  

Whether you choose to cuddle up with your significant other to watch the new Hocus Pocus or you cook them up a romantic Halloween-themed dinner, make sure you create an ambiance that you are comfortable proposing. 

If you plan to propose at home, decorate the place with a Halloween theme. 

This is the best way to feel festive. 

You can choose to dress as your favourite Halloween couple or purchase some cute matching Halloween PJs and spend the evening together.

Either way, here are a few cute Halloween date night ideas you can plan to help you propose.

3.  Halloween engagement party

Did someone say that a Halloween party proposal is the way to go?

I agree!

Plan the perfect Halloween surprise engagement party where you can propose to your significant other. 

This is the place to wear that couple’s costume you have been working on.

Bring your friends and family together to celebrate you and your significant other by planning a surprise proposal and Halloween engagement party in one. 

Plan the perfect costume party, which then becomes an engagement party.

You can even have a theme going and encourage your guests to participate. 

Here are a few unique Halloween party themes to get inspired by:

  • Monster Mash
  • Haunted House
  • Ghost Bash
  • Murder Mystery
  • Maleficent Party
  • Superheroes 
  • Hollywood 

Which of these Halloween engagement party ideas do you like the most?

The Hollywood-inspired engagement party is my favourite as you could have Oscar awards complete with the little gold statue as prizes for best dressed.

Send out fancy golden invitations letting your guests know to expect a high-class swanky party and that they should dress to impress. 

Have everyone come dressed in perfect costumes.

Decorate your walkway and walls with Hollywood stars in picture frames. And make sure gold is the dominant colour.

Your menu and place cards can be in the shape of the director’s clapboard.

The best-dressed golden global awards will go to your significant other.

Have someone else announce the winner and while she goes up to get her prize, get down and propose (read this to learn more about what to say when you propose)!

And when she says yes, bring out the bubbles and start the party. 

Your friends and family will already be there. 

I am sure it will be the best Halloween-inspired engagement party.

4. Trick Or Treat Proposal Idea

I hope you love all these Halloween engagement ideas as much as I am.

Secretly wishing I had a Halloween proposal myself.

Proposing on October 31st is excellent if you or your significant other love Halloween.

The best way to do this is to have friends and family over for a Halloween game night. 

This they suspect nothing. 

Playing a trick-or-treat Halloween couples game or family game is an excellent way to weave your proposal into it.

Ask her to pick a trick or treat when it’s your turn. 

If she chooses a treat, you can get down on your knees and propose with “a treat” (a diamond engagement ring or the ring of your choice!)

But what if she picks a trick?

Well, you are a magician; magically make that ring emerge on her finger. 

Trick or treat wedding proposal! This is an excellent idea for Halloween lovers.

5. Bucket List Halloween Proposal 

This is for you if you are looking for romantic or cute Halloween wedding proposal ideas. 

Are you both big Bucket list nerds?

I am! 

I am constantly running a list of things I wish to accomplish before specific deadlines. 

A beautiful relationship is filled with experiences that create beautiful memories, bring you two closer together, make you laugh and nonverbally say, “I love you.

Spending quality time together as a couple is essential for the health of your relationship and even more vital if you plan to propose.

This is where having a couple’s bucket list written down somewhere can come in handy.

Grab this romantic bucket list planner to start with your 31 days of Halloween proposal plan. 

Romantic Bucket List for couple planner! Grab these bucket list printables to create your own bucket list for your significant other!

Use this to your advantage if your partner enjoys working off a bucket list.

Create a  cute 31-day Halloween-themed bucket list you can complete together. 

Leave the last day blank, and if they want to know why simply tell them it’s a free day to celebrate your accomplishment as a couple for completing the bucket list. 

And this is where you can use any of the ideas on this list to propose on Halloween.

6. Carved Pumpkin Proposal 

I am not a massive fan of pumpkins, but it works perfectly with a Halloween-themed wedding proposal. 

If you go on Pinterest, I am sure you will be treated to hundreds of pumpkin proposal ideas. 

If you two typically carve pumpkins around the fall and Halloween seasons, this wedding proposal idea will work perfectly for you. 

There is nothing more romantic than a custom-carved proposal pumpkin. 

Pumpkin carving is a famous fall and Halloween activity practiced by many, so it will be easy to incorporate a Halloween-themed proposal. 

If your partner enjoys pumpkin picking, combine it with a romantic proposal. 

You can carve your proposal message directly on the pumpkin or two.

Carve “Marry me?” into a pumpkin.

You can also grab these cute faux proposal pumpkins from Etsy to make it simple. 

I still recommend going to an actual pumpkin patch to propose if you decide on getting a fake pumpkin.  

I hope you love these romantic proposal ideas with pumpkins as much as we do.

7. Spooky Movie Romantic Proposal

Halloween would not be complete without scary movies. 

And since the new Hocus Pocus movie is coming out this year, make this the best Halloween proposal yet. 

Dinner and a movie are the best way to propose if you are both movie lovers and enjoy spooky films. 

You can plan this proposal in a number of ways. 

You can choose to go to a cute drive-in theatre or your modern cinema or stay home to cozy up to a movie marathon. 

It just all depends on what your vibe is. 

Either way, your proposal can be romantic. 

Renting out a movie theatre to propose is romantic if you can have friends and family attend as well. 

Pick a scary movie to watch, ideally your significant choice of film. 

Let your guests get to the theatre before you arrive and have the cinema dim the lights.

At the end of the movie, once the credits start rolling, have the theatre pop up your proposal message on the screen along the lines of “Sarah, will you marry me?” while you get down on one knee with a ring. 

You can also plan a private movie proposal:

  • At a drive-in with cozy blankets and snacks 
  • Or just in the house while you cozy up next to the fire
  • At home in your backyard, set up romantically

All these are romantic and would work perfectly. 

Proposing in your backyard on Halloween. Here are my best tips for Halloween wedding proposals.

8. Propose With A Halloween-Inspired Meal

These Halloween marriage proposal ideas are meant to inspire you. 

I hope you are getting excited about your approaching proposal. 

If you need more romantic ideas for planning a Halloween proposal, consider cooking dinner for two by a cozy fireplace. 

Nothing is more romantic than a cozy fireplace during fall to stay warm.

Throw in a romantic Halloween dinner, and I know she will say yes! 

If you have a fireplace at home, I suggest you use it to your advantage. 

Decorate the mantle and make sure it is perfect for that Halloween proposal you have been planning. 

My favourite Halloween mantle decor ideas are Glam Halloween Mantel from TomKat Studios, Boo Window Pane Halloween Mantel from House By Hoff and the Simple Halloween Mantel from Yellow Cape Cod. 

You can also grab these cute printable Halloween banners & art from Eighteen 25 to help decorate your mantle easily. 

Cook up a delicious Halloween dinner for two.

You can reminisce about your love life and tell her why you think she’s special. 

Keep it light and fun while you work up to the big question. 

Telling scary stories is excellent if you are into scary proposal ideas. 

After you are done with the meal, grab some Halloween-inspired dessert treats and pop that question. 

If you want to be fancier, take her to a restaurant with a fireplace and surprise him or her with a romantic proposal after dinner. 

Proposing during Halloween is fun and spooky. Cooking a homemade meal and proposing during dessert is always fun. Check out these amazing proposal ideas perfect for Halloween!

9. Thriller-themed flash mob

I love all the Halloween dance proposal ideas I saw on YouTube.

If you get a chance, check them out with a quick search using the “Halloween dance proposals” keyword.

My favourite romantic Halloween proposal ideas involved the flash mob aspect of it. 

A flash mob is a bit pricy and can range anywhere from $950 to $3000, depending on your location. 

But they are such a cute idea. 

Whether you plan a dancing flash mob, a singing flash mob, or something completely new, I am sure your significant other will love it.

A flash mob is a fantastic idea, allowing you to be creative with your proposal. 

For example, you can plan a Thriller-themed flash mob for a Halloween-themed wedding proposal. 

Towards the end of the song, switch it to romantic music for the proposal part.

If you need help planning a flash mob, look up booking a flash mob, a site dedicated to those wanting to prepare a cute proposal using flash mobs.  

This flash-mob wedding proposal had me in tears.
