What do you have planned for Valentine's Day this year? A nice dinner at a fancy restaurant? A romantic evening at home? Maybe you're planning to pop the question or even head to the altar. If marriage is in the cards, you might want to check out some of these nerdy proposals and marriage moments for inspiration. And if you're single, watch anyway. If these nerds can find true love, so can you. 

Super Mario marriage proposal

Watch this guy go the extra mile when proposing to his girlfriend (a fanatical Super Mario Bros. fan) after covering the walls of his living room with hundreds of 8 1/2"  x 11" sheets of standard printer paper. He even set up a projector to display fireworks. Mario finally got his princess, but his new father-in-law keeps dressing up as Bowser and driving by the house at all hours of the night. Plus, he found a banana peel behind the rear tire of his car at work. — YouTube

Engage!

When Captain Jean-Luc Picard says to "engage," you had better well do it. Watch as this nerdy couple gets the ultimate marriage blessing. And remember, even if you can't get Patrick Stewart to help you out with your proposal, you can still do this. — YouTube via FashionablyGeek

Marriage with memes

Tim utilized a number of popular Internet memes to propose to his girlfriend Audrey outside of a restaurant, then set the video shot by Crazy Monkey Studio to the song "A Thousand Years" by Christina Perri. The result is adorkable to say the least. Maybe they should name their first kid "Success." — Vimeo via CubicleBot

The Dragonborn dance

YouTuber Malukah's cover of Skyrim's "The Dragonborn Comes"is actually a really beautiful song, which is why it worked pretty well for these newlyweds during their first dance. The venue looks nice as well — hard to believe this is taking place in Riften.— YouTube via Nerd Approved

Particle accelerator proposal

You know a proposal is going to be nerdy when it starts out with a ruse about "a rare crystalline deposit in RHIC’s beamline at the STAR detector." That was the story Kendra's boss used to get her down to the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at the Brookhaven National Laboratory where her boyfriend, Dave, was waiting to propose to her amidst the section of the machine that examines the energy present moments after the Big Bang. — Dave Mosher

Bruce Campbell wedding

Captain Picard aside, there is no greater honor for a nerdy couple than to be married by the icon that is Bruce Campbell. The dream came true for attendees at ZomBCon in Seattle a couple of years back. Bruce Campbell and Ted Rami presided over a mass vow renewal ceremony for a horde of deadites — and he even got the words right. — Geekscape

Pokemon proposal

Marq proposed to his girlfriend at the New York Comic Con last year with the help of a flash mob. He also dressed as Ash holding a Pokeball ring box. In the end, it seems that Marq didn't need to catch 'em all. There was only one that really mattered. — YouTube

Comic book proposal

David and Jennifer both love comic books, so when it came time to pop the question, he decided to make an elaborate graphic novel based on their relationship that concluded with the proposal. Then he threw a party with a bunch of friends and presented Jen with the book. Thankfully, she didn't complain about the reboot of their origin story and simply accepted her fate. —  YouTube via Nerd Approved

Portal 2 engagement

Gary Hudston might be the man to beat in terms of nerdy proposals. He hired three professional designers and Ellen McClain, the actual voice of GLaDOS in the Portal series, to propose to his gamer girlfriend. She said "yes", but it's unclear whether or not her answer was based on love or the fear of what GLaDOS might do if she turned him down. — YouTube
