Under The Sea

The New England Aquarium recently caught our attention as a creative spot for a wedding proposal. In January, an aquarium diver helped out a guy from New Jersey, by holding up the 'will you marry me' sign from inside the Giant Ocean Tank. Following the proposal, the couple enjoyed champagne and chocolate covered strawberries in the Aquarium's private tasting room overlooking the Boston Harbor.

The Game Changer

We know what you're thinking: "Wow, CBS Boston, you're really going with a Jumbotron proposal? That's not very creative at all." But hang on. Hear us out. If a big public spectacle at a sporting event is your thing, why not throw in a little twist. The Bruins offer Zamboni rides (requires a $150 donation to the Boston Bruins Foundation.) Book both Zambonis, hijack the Jumbotron, and maybe see if the organist will play Endless Love for you.
