OUTDOOR PROPOSAL IDEAS

 If you and your partner enjoy spending time outdoors, then treat them to one of these sweet outdoor proposal ideas! 

 

Go for a hike

 

 

Take your partner on a pretty scenic walk or hike in a gorgeous setting! You can opt to spell out “marry me” somewhere along the way or keep it traditional!

 

Have a little picnic

Head out to your favorite park or lake and bring along a special meal with sandwiches, dessert, and champagne. 

 

Hit the sand

Who doesn’t love the beach? It’s such a perfect location for a summer proposal. Make sure you pick a nice, clean spot during a time of day that isn't too hot!

 

UNIQUE PROPOSAL IDEAS

 If you want to go for something a little more unique, these proposal ideas will be talked about for years to come with you and your partner!

 

Spell it out

 

 

You can spell out a proposal anywhere with this idea. You can spell them out on the sand, on a chalkboard, or even have someone spell it out in the sky. Consider the world to be your canvas. 

 

Go to the skies
A private plan, helicopter, or hot air balloon can provide a gorgeous backdrop for a proposal. It’s so romantic!

 

Call in to a radio station
Does your partner have a favorite radio station they love listening to daily? If so, call in to the station and propose on air. You can even dedicate a special song to them! 

 

SIMPLE PROPOSAL IDEAS

Perhaps your partner doesn’t love the idea of something super grand. If that’s the case, respect their wishes by keeping it sweet and simple with these ideas:

 

On vacation
A lot of couples get engaged on vacation, which is a great idea to keep it intimate yet make the moment feel more special! 

 

At home

 

 

Honestly, you really don’t have to make a big to-do out of a proposal. Sometimes the best thing you can do is choose to propose in the same space you share every day where you can feel relaxed, cozy, and happy!

 

Go down memory lane
A sweet proposal idea is to head to the place you first met or had your first date. Bringing your partner back to a spot that means something significant to both of you is a great idea for a summer proposal.
