You will always remember the proposal. You, your partner, and your family will be reciting the tale of when you popped the question for generations. Ideally, that tale will be romantic, inspiring, and wonderfully sentimental. Summer is one of the best times to propose, as the warm weather permits almost all outdoor adventures. The blossoming flowers and lively landscape evokes life, beginnings, and magic. Here are a few ideas from our team at Albert’s Diamond Jeweler to go about your summertime engagement.
Propose at a Picnic
Picnics are a classic proposal idea. Fine cheese, salty crackers, and a juicy – possibly fermented – beverage make for a delightful culinary assemblage. When combined with a beautiful view of the Indiana Dunes, Lake Michigan, or Hoosier Prairie, you’ve got yourself a gorgeous opportunity to propose.
You could hike together and have a picnic at the end of the long journey, letting this once-in-a-lifetime moment surprise them at the pinnacle of the trip. This is an especially great option if your soon-to-be fiance is an experienced hiker.
The Hunt for the Engagement Ring
An unusual route is through a scavenger hunt. You can leave romantic clues with each stop at a place special to your relationship. It could be the place you first met, where you had your first date, or a reference to an inside joke. Get your friends and family involved for an especially personal adventure.
While some prefer riddles, others may opt for more straightforward hints. Not everyone likes scavenger hunts, so make sure they are the type of person who likes games. Don’t make it too complicated either. It would be pretty unfortunate if they never figured out where the trail leads.
A nautical engagement is a classic. Charter a boat for a special day, just you and your partner. Out there on the enchanting Lake Michigan, kneel below a stunning sunset sky and express your love for them. The rush of the water and shimmer of the light makes this truly romantic and beautiful.
You may also want to pack a surprise bottle of champagne to pop after the big question.
Spark Up Love in a Balloon
A trip in a hot air balloon is always intimate, owing to the basket’s small size and the unbelievable view. Summer is the ideal season to do so, as it won’t get too cold while you’re up there. Indiana is home to plenty of companies eager to take you and your partner up into the skies. There, with the earth below and sky above, you can offer the promise of eternal love and commitment.
If you are taken with this idea, make sure to book early. A hot air balloon adventure is beloved by many, and there are only so many time slots available. This should go without saying, but make sure your partner is not afraid of heights before scheduling this to be the moment you propose.
