Fall in Love with Fall Proposals

Summer is over, a chill is in the air, and the changing leaves are bursting forth with fall colors. As you snuggle up with your beloved in the crisp autumn air, drawing warmth from a shared mug of spiced cider, you may feel compelled to weave the beauty of the harvest season into your unique proposal story. There are plenty of reasons why autumn just might be the perfect time to pop the question. After all, there are so many fall traditions that make the perfect backdrop for the photos to follow!

Use a prop: Halloween candy, a pumpkin, her favorite pumpkin-spice treat — fall has boundless options for adorable ways to present, show off or photograph the ring! Also, consider using the prop itself to ask your question. For example, how absolutely enthralled would she be to come home to a lit pumpkin carved with “Marry Me” and the forever captivating ring of her dreams perched on the stem?

Pick a memorable setting: A gorgeous walk through the changing leaves makes a magically romantic setting for a proposal. Prep for photos by asking a friend or family member to follow behind with a camera to snap delightfully candid photos!

Get festive: If your soon-to-be fiancée loves a specific fall holiday more than any other time of year, plan the perfect proposal around the event she loves. Perhaps you pull her aside at Thanksgiving, while in costume at a Halloween party, or at a favorite fall event, such as a hayride or haunted trail!

Fall is also the perfect setting for engagement and save-the-date photos, so consider proposing early enough in the season to plan for the exciting events to follow!
