Some of the best and most expensive proposals in the world happened between celebrities. You can only feel jealous reading their proposal story. After going through this list, you would also hope that someone would come to your life that can surpass what these celebrities have done. Of course, they are wealthy enough to afford such a luxurious proposal. Sadly, for some of them, the expensive proposal was not enough to keep the fire burning. In short, money just can’t buy love.
Nevertheless, it is still worth looking back the times when these celebrities have popped the question to their partner.
10. Jordan Bratman’s hotel room proposal to Christina Aguilera
While on a vacation in California, music executive, Jordan Bratman, popped the question to his then-girlfriend pop superstar Christina Aguilera. Inside their luxurious hotel room, Bratman asked only rose petals and gift boxes to be scattered all over the floor. Each of the boxes had poems inside. The last box that Christina opened contained a 5-carat ring. After finding it, he was down on her knees asking her to marry him. Despite the cost of the ring, the two eventually parted ways. After over years of being together, they decided to end their marriage. They had a son together. Christina is now engaged to Matt Rutler, his former set assistant.
9. Pink proposed to Carey Hart
This is such a unique proposal in a sense that it was the girl who proposed to the guy. Of course, it involved Pink. She always does all the wacky stuff from the way she dresses up to her concert performances. Thus, it should come as no surprise when in the middle of a motocross challenge, she proposed to her then boyfriend, Carey Hart. She held up a sign that said, “Will you marry me? I’m serious.” This took place in the middle of the race and he was entering the 3rd lap. Of course, he pulled over and said yes. This might not be expensive in a traditional sense, but you can only imagine what Hart had to sacrifice to have been interrupted in the middle of the game. It was worth the sacrifice though.
8. Bill Rancic’s helicopter proposal to Giuliana Rancic
Entrepreneur Bill Rancic is a huge fan of aviation. This is why he decided to propose to his girlfriend, celebrity host Giuliana DePandi. He took her on a helicopter ride just above Chicago. First, she had a limo taking her to a helipad. Rancic was waiting for her at the helipad with a box of pizza and a bottle of champagne. They flew all the way above Chicago where they could see holiday lights lit up and he popped up the question. This couple has gone through a lot together through the years since their marriage.
7. Nick Cannon proposed twice to Mariah
Of course, Mimi deserves only the best. For a music icon like Mariah, you just can’t settle for anything less. This is exactly what host Nick Canon did. On the rooftop of her Manhattan apartment, Cannon got down on one knee asking her hand while presenting her with a 17-carat diamond ring. It was hidden inside a ring pop candy. If this was not enough, he took Mariah on a private helicopter ride where he proposed again. Sadly, the expensive proposals were not enough to keep their marriage. The two has since split, but they share beautiful twins out of their marriage. They are also very nice to each other. Mariah said that the two share a beautiful relationship now especially for the sake of the kids.
6. Kanye West’s grand proposal to reality star, Kim Kardashian
When two of the biggest stars on earth are planning to tie the knot, simplicity is definitely never the key. Kanye and Kim are larger than life personalities. Therefore, it should come as no surprise when Kanye had to take Kim at the AT&T Park for a night where he proposed to her while the Chicago symphony was playing. The jumbo-tron on the stadium also revealed the words, “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!” After saying yes, her family and friends came over for their congratulations. According to reports, this proposal was worth $8 million.
5. Seal did a super proposal to supermodel
Although Seal and Heidi Klum are no longer married now, it is still worth noting how Seal proposed to the supermodel. He took Heidi in a helicopter ride heading to a 14,000-feet glacier. It was where he arranged a customized igloo. Inside it, there were rose petals, dozens of candles and lots of food and champagne. You can only imagine the amount that went into this proposal and the effort behind those who prepared for it. Nevertheless, it was not enough to keep the fire of love burning.
4. Tom Cruise’s Eiffel Tower proposal
After 11 years of marriage to Nicole Kidman, the couple finally ended in a divorce. Since then, Cruise was reported to have dated quite a few women. When he met Katie Holmes though, it took only 2 months before he decided that she was the girl he wanted to spend the rest of his life with (Note that he had 2 broken marriages prior to Holmes). He asked the question on top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. They also shared a meal inside the top-notch restaurant inside the tower, the Le Jules Verne. Of course, Cruise couldn’t help it and told the media about their engagement just the morning after. Sadly, on his third marriage, Cruise was still unsuccessful.
3. Prince William’s Safari proposal
This list will never be complete without a royal proposal. You might be surprised though that of all the proposals on this list, this is perhaps the simplest and least dramatic. Although the whole world had their eyes on the royal couple when they were married, the proposal was more private. It happened in October 2010 when they secretly sneaked into Kenya. They were in the country’s Wildlife Conservancy when the prince popped the question. They were inside the Rutundu Cabin of Mount Kenya where they were surrounded by wild animals moving freely. It was later revealed that the proposal was not planned. It just happened as they were feeling the moment. Kate also loved that he chose the perfect place as she is passionate about animal conservation.
2. Dean McDermott’s proposal couldn’t be any more romantic
Although their marriage has been rocked with cheating scandals, the biggest was actually great. The part where Dean McDermott proposed to Tori Spelling might have been pulled out of the pages of a fairy tale novel that you just want it to happen to you too. They were just 3 months together when he decided to pop the question. He took her to a horse-drawn carriage where it traveled for half a mile. The path was lit with Christmas lights. The end was a table that was surrounded by Christmas trees. It was where he popped the question and gave the diamond and sapphire ring.
1. Jay-Z’s $5 million dollar engagement ring
To close this list, we have the proposal between the most beloved music royalties. Of course, as Beyonce’s song says, if you like it, you should put a ring on it. So did Jay-Z. He proposed to Beyonce, but not just with an ordinary ring. It was said that he handed her a stunning diamond-encrusted band worth $5 million. The red carpet mock proposal also made things even more dramatic when Beyonce dropped her ring once on the carpet. Since then, the couple had a child, and recently, it was announced that they were having twins. It just couldn’t get any better for the two.
Well, we can only hope that one day, this kind of proposal will also happen to us. For these celebrity couples, regardless of the success of their marriage, they at least had a memorable proposal to cherish. This is something no one can take away from them. If you are planning to propose to someone, you might also take note from these stars, but only if you can afford what they can.
