As warm summer nights turn to crisp autumn days, time just seems to slow down. Gone is the hustle and bustle of summer and we began to look forward to the calm of fall. With perfect weather, families gathering, and the holidays just beginning, its no wonder this season is ideal for popping the big question.
Here are a few of our favorite fall proposal ideas. Not ready to propose just yet? Most of these are awesome date ideas as well!
A pumpkin patch is not only a must have day date for fall, it also provides a picturesque backdrop for an unexpected proposal. While you all are hunting for the perfect pumpkins, drop to one knee and let her know you've already found the perfect partner!
Pro Tip: Plan ahead, have pumpkins made with 'Will you marry me?' on them. You can carve it into several pumpkins or add it to one with vinyl.
Whether it is preparing a meal for two on a Tuesday or prepping for Thanksgiving a trip to the farmers market, in fall, is the first place to start. You buy local, get a great bang for your buck, and have a fun day date in the process. If you are looking for something unexpected this will definitely be it. Find a vendor with fresh pares and make a joke about one of them being the perfect pare just like the two of you. Corny we know, but hey you're at a farmers market, corny fits right in.
Pro Tip: Have a chef on sight to prepare a meal for two using the ingredients you gathered on your date.
Thanksgiving is fall holiday royalty and the perfect time for a proposal. Most families already spend time before the meal stating what they are thankful for. When it's your turn tell your partner how thankful you are for them, finish by popping the question in front of the whole family and spend this season with your bellies and hearts full.
Pro Tip: Place the ring on a dollop of whipped cream on a piece of pie and let her have dessert first!
Nothing is better on fall nights than cuddling up next to the one you love in front of a fire. Whether that's a bonfire on the beach or a nice roaring fire at home, it set the ideal mood for a romantic fall proposal.
Pro Tip: S'mores, enough said.
The Great Outdoors
With the not too hot, not too cold weather that fall provides, every day is a great day to \be outdoors. Therefore locations that may be too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter are ideal proposal locations in fall. Think parks, rooftops, forests, etc.
Pro Tip: Don't take her to any old outdoor locale, this is a proposal after all. Make sure it is memorable for example The Grand Canyon or Central Park. If that's not an option make it memorable in other ways like setting up a private picnic for two at your favorite local park.
