Wedding proposals are no longer a private affair. When once the closest of family members had to wait to hear by word of mouth the juiciest details of how the guy (or girl!) got down on one knee and popped the question, we now have YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram to capture the moment for us and broadcast that big moment across the Internet.

The simple has now become the mundane, and people have been rising to the challenge lately to create the most original, offbeat, and truly awe-inspiring moments to make the most of popping the big question. They’re rallying their friends, family, and even strangers to help make the day the most memorable of their significant other’s lives.

We’ve seen everything from singing waiters to a proposal performance in the middle of Home Depot to a custom-made storybook — OK, that one isn’t a video, but it’s still super impressive — but we have a feeling that lovers all over won’t stop there. There has to be a bigger, better proposal performance coming down the pipeline, and when it hits the World Wide Web, you can be sure we’ll post it right here just for you!

Check below for some of the best wedding proposals that have graced our computer screens and let us know in the comments if we’ve missed any good ones.
