Hours & Directions
With the amazing weather, breath-taking sunsets, and beautiful mountain vistas, summer in Colorado is the ideal time to pop the question. There are thousands of wonderful spots that are just begging for a romantic walk and a picnic dinner, perfect for pulling out a sparkling engagement ring and surprising your sweetheart!
Your engagement is one of the biggest things that will ever happen in your life, so you understandably want it to be perfect. You have to think about everything from the location and timing to the ring and what you’ll wear. So, if you’re feeling a little overwhelmed about how to have a flawless engagement this summer, here are a few tips for you!
Engagement rings are arguably one of the most important investments, and can reflect your personal style. Choosing a ring can be tricky, since you need to stay within budget, but you want something that she will absolutely love to wear and show off to her friends. Start looking around early, ask (subtly or not-so) about her preferences, and identify a few designers or styles she’ll like before making a purchase.
Does your significant other love the outdoors or the city? Candlelit dinners or camping trips? Find a location that is unique to you, whether it’s a special place that you’ve been before, or somewhere exciting and new. The ambiance is important to create the mood, so scope it out beforehand.
Sometimes, it’s extra fun to bring your friends and family in on the secret. Consider hiring a photographer to capture the engagement, or recruit a buddy to prep the engagement spot ahead of time. If you need help holding engagement rings, decorating, chauffeuring, or planning, don’t forget to rely on your social network!
Your relationship is unlike any other, so why would you go with a general proposal? That’s right- you wouldn’t! It’s the little things that count, and tell her that you’re paying attention, so go all out with the small romantic gestures. Write a proposal speech with your shared jokes or memories, include touches from your home or travels together, and really insert your own unique style!
Instead of waiting until the very end of a special night to propose, consider popping the question earlier in the evening. That way, you won’t be nervous all night long, and she will have the chance to tell her family and show off her ring right away!
