At Huntington Fine Jewelers, we believe nothing is more exciting than a marriage proposal. It marks the beginning of a new chapter. There’s something serendipitous about getting engaged in the autumn when the holidays are approaching and the leaves are changing shades. With so much inspiration out there, how do you plan a fall proposal that’s original and romantic? Check out these proposal tips from our team of experts.
The Magic of Fall
There are so many unique proposal ideas out there and with social media available to capture and share each moment, the pressure is on to create an experience that will impress. What matters most is that you speak from the heart and try to plan your proposal around something your bride-to-be will love. Whether she enjoys hiking and the great outdoors or is a romantic when it comes to fall leaves and pumpkin cookies, these autumn proposals are sure to be memorable and magical.
With rows of sweet smelling trees, gallons of fresh apple cider, and the crisp autumn breeze, an apple orchard can set a delightful scene for a proposal. Venture out to your local orchard as a couple or go with family and friends, so there’s someone around to document your special moment. Try finding unique ways to incorporate the apple picking activities with your proposal by presenting the ring around an apple stem or surprising her while she poses in front of the beautiful scenery.
Who doesn’t enjoy carving jack-o-lanterns around Halloween? Those with a taste for the macabre may appreciate a seasonally appropriate proposal featuring a day of finding the perfect gourd at the pumpkin patch, followed by a lighthearted carving competition. For bonus points, carve a special message into your pumpkin and spin it around so your love can see it at the last second. Besides a written message, you can also carve a heart in the pumpkin and place the open ring box inside. The options are endless to get creative with your design!
Cool fall nights offer a great opportunity for camping trips at your local state park. Whether you go as a couple or with some close friends, there are few things more fun than enjoying some drinks and laughing around a roaring campfire. Propose to your love on a nature hike near the campsite, while alone in your shared tent, or by the fire pit while wrapped in a cozy blanket.
Holiday Photo Shoot
Many families enjoy getting photos taken for the holidays. If you want to surprise your sweetie with a special proposal they’ll never forget, consider setting up a professional photoshoot. Tell your love the photos are for a holiday card or as a fun way to celebrate the coming seasons. Once you pop the question, you can reveal that it’s actually a surprise engagement shoot! Feel free to bring some special friends or family members along to watch and get in on the fun.
