The engagement of TJ Thyne and Leah Park sounds like it came from a movie! While the couple was vacationing in Cologne, Germany, they were walking the grounds of the castle they were staying when the Bones star popped the question to his model girlfriend, confirms People. Thyne shared photos of the Hollywood-worthy moment, including him down on one knee, and then kissing his new bride-to-be in a candlelit heart in front of the gorgeous castle. As if that wasn’t beautiful enough, they posed in front of a horse-drawn carriage, which Park later shared on Instagram with the caption, “A fairytale engagement.”

What are some ways to make your marriage proposal unique?

Cupid’s Advice:

So not everyone has the luxury to get down on one knee in front of a beautiful castle and then be taken away in a horse-drawn carriage, but there are other ways to make your engagement as special and unique as your love.

1. Skip the expected: While a fancy dinner followed by a velvet box and diamond ring is nice, it’s definitely been done a million times over. So if you’re wanting to make your proposal totally unique, cancel those dinner reservations.

2. Personalize it: There’s no better way to make your proposal unique than personalizing it to the tastes of your partner. Is there a show or activity they love? Why not incorporate a proposal with their hobby? It will not only surprise them, but it will make your engagement all the more special because you combined it with something that’s already special to their heart.

3. Take it out of town: So we can’t all fly off the Germany, but why not include your proposal in a weekend getaway? This makes the proposal exciting since it’s taking place somewhere new and/or outside your regular realm. It also gives you both a chance to celebrate the engagement for a day or so. Who wants to get engaged and then return to work the next day?
