Summer is almost upon us and if you’re anything like Michele and I, you can’t wait for it to arrive. The weather, the activities, and the excitement of the summer are all so fun. Summer is also one of the best times to propose. For those that are thinking about how to propose in the summer, today we’ll be giving you some proposal ideas to give you a good starting point.

At the Beach

The beach in the summer is one of the best places to propose. Sure you can write your proposal on the sand, but try to tie the rest of your proposal in with your relationship. Some ways of doing this are having a romantic picnic on the beach setup with framed pictures of you two and your partner’s favorite snacks.

Outdoor Terrace or Patio

This is an awesome place to propose. Many cities have venues with terraces and patios that are very romantic and would be great on warm summer nights. The best way to personalize this is to actually rent the space out and have touches that are personal to you two.

Tropical Destination

During the summer, many people take vacation and the destinations tend to have the best weather for couples to have fun. Because of this you can have a destination proposal. Take a vacation to tropical places like Hawaii, Costa Rica, or the Caribbean and arrange with your hotel to have a proposal setup as you arrive.


Summertime is also a great time to go to a winery. Going wine tasting on a gorgeous day is a great way to spend time with your loved one, especially as the lead-in to a proposal. Wineries also tend to be gorgeous locations and their grounds have many options to have a private proposal with a great view of wine hills.

At a Park

Similar to the beach, you can a very sentimental proposal at a nice park. You can also have one while doing a fun activity like biking to the park, hiking around it, or flying a kite. Make sure that you arrange it so that it seems spontaneous to have a perfect surprise.
