How to propose to a Downton Abbey fanPublished on 28th September '14
Every girl loves a touch of old-fashioned romance and, with Downton Abbey back on our screens, inspiration comes in the form of chivalrous gestures and post-Edwardian relationships. So here are three ideas on how to propose to a Downton fan. Highclere romance: Recreate Lady Mary and Matthew Crawleys romantic moonlit proposal by whisking your significant other off to the home of Downton Highclere Castle in Berkshire. Take a romantic stroll around the grounds, enjoy afternoon tea in the drawing room and, before you leave, take her outside the grand entrance to recreate that special proposal from the silver screen. Dance the night away: Step back in time to the days of Downton Abbey with a lavish banquet and opulent ball. If the period drama is what excites your girlfriend then why not take her back to the pomp and ceremony of the 1920s with a themed party alongside all her friends and family then, following an intimate dance, drop to one knee in the middle of the ballroom and pop the question. Love letters: In a time before texts, emails and Twitter there was only one way to declare your love for someone from a distance a love letter. Theres something intimate and romantic about a hand-written love note which evokes more emotion than changing your relationship status on Facebook. Step back to a simpler time by sending your beloved a series of special love letters, poems and photos in the post before the final note reading: Will you marry me? and accompanying a small giftbox If you're looking for a creative and romantic proposal, or a way to pop the question with a certain theme, then contact The Proposers.
