This creative gentleman in Roanoke, Virginia, won a contest from a newspaper and got to splash his proposal all over the front page of the Roanoke Times. His girlfriend said yes, but the first persons to hear her were the clerks at a local DeliMart where she bought a newspaper (after getting a call from a co-worker who tipped her off).

Placing a wedding proposal in a newspaper is fun, relatively creative, and a very good attention-getter. Just make sure your girlfriend actually reads the paper. 😉
