Intro Deck: 

Celebrity proposals aren’t always over the top, but when they are, it’s internet-breaking. Here’s how the A-list got down on one knee

Celebrity marriage proposals can go one of two ways. Famous declarations of love either go totally over the top (Kim Kardashian, not everyone rents a stadium and an orchestra for their proposal, you know...) or keep things casual and understated to change the pace. Some stars even get the chance to pop the question twice, just like Nick Cannon when he proposed to Mariah Carey over and around the Empire State Building.

Whichever way they choose to do it, you know that they’re going to want to tell everyone about it. As well as flashing those stunning rocks in the ubiquitous Instagram engagement selfie, there’s probably a Twitter explanation coming on just how their other half popped the question, as well as segment in their reality TV show. Oh wait, that might just be Kim…

But the one thing that stays the same? We want to know everything. We’re talking when, where, who, how and maybe even why – is there a conveniently timed baby on the way? And we definitely want to see that ring- you can take a look at the most stunning A-list sparklers in our celebrity engagement ring round up, which features more carats than a rabbit’s snack bar.

Kimye set the bar high with Kanye’s elaborate set-up, and Seal’s proposal to super Heidi Klum might have even topped that – an igloo, built just for you?! How could you say no… At the other end of the spectrum, there’s Will and Jada Pinkett Smith’s engagement (seriously, these two are fast becoming our favourite celebrity couple around), and Seth Rogen’s proposal gone slighty wrong… Even George Clooney couldn’t escape an embarrassing slip-up. With or without a mistake in the proposal, celebrity weddings are always stunning, as well as the famous bridesmaids.   

So whether you’re engaged or not, and whatever your bridal style, take some engagement inspo from these celebrity proposals – you never know, your significant other could be pulling a Tom Cruise sooner than you think…
