Summer, summer, summertime - time to sit back and unwind. 🌞It’s also the best time to propose to the love of your life! With the longest days of the year, it is the perfect season for beautiful memories to be made. The cool summer nights, the beautiful sunrises, and flowers are in full bloom; but finding the right way to ask on budget can me a difficult task. You want something special and enchanted, but renting a private plane is out of the question. Here are our top five memorable proposal ideas that won't break the bank:
Take a short trip downtown. In a majority of cities, there are downtown spots that are the perfect setting for a proposal. Whether by a duck pond, shaded walking path, or even the courthouse fountain, the scenery found in the downtown area of cities can transform into the most romantic places that your significant other will remember evermore. The best part is that these locations are free, have easy parking, and great place to take pictures when they say, “I Do!”
Why not a stroll down memory lane? Did you meet in high school, a fast food restaurant, or walking your dogs? Reenacting where you met is a terrific way to take your relationship to full circle. You are starting a new life where you started! This will even make it more of a surprise and they will not expect it.

Is your partner more of a production type of person? No worries. Ask her job, family and friends for help. It may be harder to keep a secret, but they would love to be involved with witnessing the shock on his or her face when you pop the question. That is free help! Set up an imaginary appointment, or someone needs help fixing something in the garage, then SURPRISE! Look at our unique wedding and engagement ring line for that special touch when you are down on one knee.
Wait until a holiday or party and use the fact that a large majority of your loved ones will be there! There are summer holidays happening and before you know it will be winter holidays. This way the people you love are there to witness and be as excited, and you didn't have to pay for the decoration or the food.
Pro Tip: Make sure that this is okay with the party host first!! 👍🏽
Just ask! While a big production is great, a moment between you and your love is all you need. Speak from the heart, look into their eyes, and ask the question! You will love seeing their excitement and screams when they call everyone with the news.
How ever you pop the question, keep in mind that it is the thought that counts. Your partner will love you for the lovely gesture, no matter how grandeur it is or isn't. The moment you make your sweetheart your forever one and only will be absolute bliss. So, let us be the first to say, ‘Good Luck’ and ‘Congratulations’ for your special day. 💍
