Be A Kiasu Singaporean And Plan Your Proposal With Items Under $20

Wedding proposals are not to be taken lightly. It’s the ONE opportunity you get to sweep her off her feet and knock her socks off before she says “yes” to a lifetime with you. Make it a memorable day or night by making sure you get all the decorations in order, right to the very last rose petal you place on the floor. While you’re saving up on the wedding ring she’s been eyeing (hinting) for, we’re here to help you save on your proposal decor. We are no wedding planners, but we do have a certain expertise in getting the best things at the lowest price (*cough* 59 things you can get for under $15 for your next party *cough*). Guys, here’s your checklist of 25 things under $20 you absolutely need to get to nail your dream wedding proposal!

1. Rose Petal

To start off, get Rose Petals ($1.20) because you’ll definitely need them to line the path to the place you’re planning to pop the actual question. Strewn the remaining on the bed because nothing is as romantic as a bed full of rose petals.
