While a marriage proposal was once an intimate moment between a couple in love, these days it's taken a more grandiose turn and added music, choreography, casts of characters — not to mention millions of viewers at home. Here we take a look at some of the most-viewed wedding proposals that have become viral sensations.
The Lip Dub Down The Street
When we say lip dub, we're nut just talking singing into your hairbrush in the mirror. A few ambitious gentlemen have gone all out to propose to their loves with full-on choreography, participation from friends and family members, and even moving vehicles.
It takes a lot of coordination, but when it works it works — and garners millions of views. Case in point: Isaac's proposal, above, set to the tune of Bruno Mars' "Marry You."

The Flash Mob in the Park
It's all about the thrill of the dance -- and of course, the love part too -- in a well-choreographed flash mob proposal. This one involves a full marching band in addition to some stellar dance moves to Michael Jackson's "The Way You Make Me Feel." With a surprise proposal like this, we're wondering what the actual wedding entertainment would be like.
Up On Stage
Being proposed to on a date at a restaurant may not be something new, but how about onstage at a concert? A few lucky fans of acts like Train, Kylie Minogue, and Mariah Carey have had the opportunity to propose in front of tons of fans, who cheered when they got their 'yes.'
Meanwhile, Matt Sill of Atlanta turned your average trip to the movie theatre into a viral video event, when he created a movie-trailer marriage proposal that took over the big screen of his local theatre. Take a look above.
Home Depot (of all places)
Dustin arrived at the Home Depot in Salt Lake City thinking he was there to help his roommate pick out some lighting for a party. When he was taken to the lumber aisle, what he found waiting for him was a mob of friends and family as his marriage proposal unfolded to the song, "Somebody Loves You" by Betty Who.
Proposal AND Wedding
If you're surprising someone with a wedding, you'd better be sure they're game. In June, 2013, Ryan Leak proposed to his girlfriend. Her dream was to get engaged and married on the same day, and so later on that night he had planned her surprise dream wedding.
Hey, we don't all aspire to be online superstars, right? There's nothing wrong with a good ol' fashioned proposal on a romantic getaway, or even an average Thursday night. As long as you put some thought into it, who could object? (Though, truth be told, even some of these private moments can be shared online and gain millions of views).
