The memories will last a lifetime, it’s no wonder people feel the pressure when proposing. Agonizing about how to do it, where to do it, when to do it … and keeping it all under wraps!
We will let you in on a secret: the key to picking the perfect plan is making reflective of your partner and what you both enjoy. It’s special, because it celebrates what makes your relationship special!
Do you immediately envisioning a proposal that is as outgoing and adventurous as it is romantic and memorable? Let us help you find the perfect ring, and the perfect proposal plan to match! Here are a few of our favourite proposal ideas perfect for the outdoors-loving couple.
On a hike
It’s the perfect, low maintenance proposal that gets you right into nature! Take a long hike up a mountain, or to a beautiful spot with the perfect view and pop the question. Plan ahead and consider who else might be using the trails when you’re there. If you’re going to a popular spot, do it during a week day when it will be less busy.
On a ski-lift
Are you the couple that’s always hitting the slopes? A ski-lift proposal will need a little planning, but will definitely be worth it! Stage romantic messages waiting for you as you ascend the mountain, or set up a beautiful display waiting for you at the top. If you’re worried you won’t be able to manage it on your own consider recruiting your friends, or even the resort staff, to help. A nice extra: A romantic descent down the hill together after!
On the race track
A perfect choice for the fast-moving, speed-loving couple! Challenge your partner to a race at your local race track (and maybe even consider letting them win). Then end the race with a surprised proposal, just be sure to do it on a solo ride, or when you’re safely off the track.
During an aerial trapeze routine
Are you the flexible, up for anything couple? Book a session at your local aerial instruction school and learn a few new skills and work on your trust and team work before popping the question. Bonus points if you can muster the coordination to pull it off mid-air!
On a snorkeling or scuba diving adventure
An underwater proposal is sure to be memorable! Depending on where you live and your certification level, plan a snorkeling or diving adventure. Pick a local spot that’s known for its natural beauty or sunken treasures and get exploring. Just be sure to keep the ring safe!
While falling from the sky
Are you the couple that really loves to get your adrenaline pumping? Propose while skydiving! You can arrange for a surprise proposal to be waiting for you when you land, have something visible as you descend, or even propose just as you’re about to jump. It’s the perfect activity to mask those pre-proposal jitters.
During a Laser Tag or Paintball proposal
Are you the couple that’s not afraid of a little friendly competition? Take to the course and battle it out before proposing. You’ll likely be surrounded by others, so consider if your partner would be okay with a little attention before attempting this one!
On vacation in a secluded spot
Looking for a quiet and romantic proposal that’s still a memorable one? Book a weekend away in a cozy cabin or tiny treehouse surrounded by nature. It’s the perfect year-round option that’s equally romantic in June as it is in January.
