Where to Propose in Los Angeles

Los Angeles is a big area, so we decided to make this a three part blog! You may know some of these locations, you may not. Here are a couple of ideas of where to propose in the Downtown Los Angeles area:

    • Perch
      I went here for my 22nd birthday and let me tell you, views for days. This is one of the most gorgeous rooftop restaurants in the area. You can see all of downtown and is gorgeous at the perfect sunset time. (Image Credit)

    • Los Angeles Arboretum
      This spot is perfect for the nature and adventure loving couple. With over 127 acres of beautiful rolling hills and places to hang out, you could “WOW!” her with a gorgeous set up.
    • Griffith Observatory
      The picture will give you an idea of why I picked this stunning location because how could I not? Sitting on the top of LA Hills and looking over the city, the Griffith Observatory can’t be beat. (Image Credit)

    • Hollywood Sign
      For the couple that loves adventure and has never done this, she’ll never think twice. The Hollywood sign is a statement of California and has been for years. If you are California natives or even just visiting, this location would never be a giveaway. It’s just something you always wanted to do… or do again. (Image Credit)

    • Airplane Ride over Downtown
      Always wanted to win a girl’s heart while doing something extraordinary? This is one of them. With so many tourists in the area, there are so many places that do airplane rides and for reasonable prices too.
    • Disneyland
      This for all you kids at heart out there. Now who wouldn’t want to be proposed to in front of Cinderella’s castle? This may seem silly for some, but for other’s it’s a dream come true, literally! I’ve always had a soft spot for Disneyland even as an adult. There’s something about it that just makes your heart happy, just like your new fiancé. (Image Credit)

Places to Propose in San Antonio

Military City USA has a lot more than just that. San Antonio is full of history, and romance, believe it or not. With gorgeous weather and even better people, San Antonio is a wonderful place. As a San Antonio resident, I’ve heard about some cliché, and not so cliché, places to propose in this city. Here’s what I came up with:

    1. The Alamo
      This location is a given. It has been historical to The Alamo since like forever?! The Alamo is not only historical, but it is also a stunning piece of architecture. Located right in the middle of downtown, this won’t be a give away location at all.
    2. The Riverwalk
      This is the first thing I think of when I think of San Antonio?! Most people don’t know, but the Riverwalk is actually 240 miles long!!! Imagine the countless places that you can propose. One special place is Marriage Island. With a gorgeous oak tree and two benches, countless of people have gotten done on one knee in this very spot. (Image Credit)

    1. Texas Hill Country
      Now this is a very broad place, but so many gorgeous spots. Whether it’s a vineyard or an old historic town like Boerne, the Texas Hill Country can’t be beat. (Image Credit)

    1. Tower of Americas
      Most people have no idea what this is, but if you know what the Seattle space needle is, you’ll have a good idea. With an amazing restaurant at the top and incredible views, the Tower of Americas is the perfect place for your girl to say “YES!”
    2. Spurs Game
      Big sports fans?! Well then, c’mon on. Every Spurs fan I’m sure would just LOVE this idea. The Spurs have a very interesting fan following, so this location is definitely for them.
    3. The Pearl District
      As a Pearl District resident, this may be my favorite. The Pearl District is a newer area right outside of Downtown. With amazing restaurants and unreal architecture, this is a great location to sweep your girl off her feet. (Image Credit)
      Engagement Planner in San Antonio
    1. Museum ( The Witte Museum or San Antonio Museum of Art)
      For all my museum lovers, we have a couple of different ones in the SATX area. My preference would be the two listed above because The Witte just opened a gorgeous new part that includes a dinosaur exhibit and the SAMA is just unreal beautiful for many different reasons. (Image Credit)

7 Places to Propose Across the Globe

The only thing better than traveling with your significant other is to start the trip as ‘significant others’ and end the trip as ‘fiancés’! When it comes to international travel, you have an endless number of places to pop the question, but a few are a head above the rest. Listed below are seven of the most gorgeous places on the face of the earth that double as the most gorgeous places to propose!
best place in the world to propose

  1. Nā Pali Coast, Kauai, Hawaii | jacilynmblog.com

While traveling to Hawaii isn’t exactly traveling abroad, it is still a top destination for weddings and proposals alike! Take your pick from jungles, waterfalls, beaches or resorts; Hawaii has all of that to offer and more. For instance, The Nā Pali Coast State Park is a 6,175 acres Hawaiian state park located in the center of the north west side of Kauai, the oldest inhabited Hawaiian island.

2. Kawachi Fuji Garden, Kitakyushu, Japan

If you are planning a trip to Japan, make sure you make the Kawachi Fuji Garden top ten on your list of places to visit. This gorgeous garden features a pastel-colored tunnel straight out of a fairy tale. Take a walk through one of the two tunnels lined with Wisteria flowers and allow the wonder of it all inspire you to drop down on one knee.

3. Juliet’s Balcony, Verona, Italy

Romeo and Juliet’s love story didn’t end all that well, (spoiler) but it started beautifully at Juliet’s balcony. Is your loved one a Shakespeare fan or a fan of literature in general? This spot, located in Verona, Italy, can give your proposal an element of classic romance that will be remembered fondly. (Just like all of those Shakespearian sonnets you had to memorize in high school.)

4. The Mulia, Bali, Indonesia

The Mulia is slightly different from the rest of the locations on this list because it is a resort tucked away in Bali. For those who prefer lounging and relaxing to hiking and touring, the luxury Mulia provides a stunning backdrop for a fancy proposal. You can take your pick from the four restaurants and five bars, the signature Oasis beachfront pools or the cabanas with poolside treatment.

best place in the world to propose

5. Isle of Skye, Scotland

The Isle of Skye is the northernmost island in the inner Hebrides of Scotland and is home to the most dramatic mountain scenery in the country. Referred to in many novels, poems and songs alike, Isle of Skye provides a picturesque view and other-worldly feel to your storybook proposal.

6. The Mayan Ruins, Tulum, Mexico

If your plan is to tour Mexico, Tulum is probably already high on your list. If your significant other is a history buff, they will undoubtedly want to check out the Mayan Ruins, a stunning reminder of the powerful civilization that once ruled Central America. The temples remain standing after a millennium, but feeling the history and magic of this spot may make you drop to one knee.

best place in the world to propose

7. Cliffs of Moher, County Clare, Ireland

The Cliffs of Moher are Ireland’s most visited attraction, and it is clear to see why! Stretching for five miles along the Atlantic Ocean, with sight of the Aran Islands and Galway Bay on a clear day, there is no better spot in all of Ireland to propose. Steal away from the crowds, take in the view, and ask the question you’ve been dying to since you boarded the plane!

Any and all of these places serve as a perfect setting for a proposal, so long as you don’t forget this one rule: make sure there is someone around to capture the moment so you can share it with all of your loved ones back home! Safe travels!

At Home Date Idea: Let’s Be Kids Again

Most of the time, you realize that it’s been forever since you and your loved one went on a date together. Your schedules are crazy, you just want to relax, or the budget doesn’t allow for it. So that’s where this great blog post comes in. We are starting a new series of At Home Date Ideas and I can’t wait to share the first one with you.

For my first idea I wanted to let out our inner kid behavior, so I’m positive it’ll be a fun one. Start with Mickey Mouse pancakes in bed! Now who wouldn’t want that? Some sausage, orange juice, and maybe spice it up with some Champagne.

simple cheap date idea at home

Head downstairs and I test you to leave all electronic devices upstairs! Still in your pajamas, gather all the blankets possible. I’m sure you know what’s coming next. FORT TIME! This is so fun and I still enjoy doing it with my significant other. Build a fort in the living room and close all the blinds. So cute and romantic!

By this time, y’all are in the mood for some serious down time. Then pop in a DVD of your childhood favorite movie. Maybe Sleeping Beauty, The Incredibles, or Monsters Inc. (my personal favorite.) Make some buttery popcorn into a big bowl and bring it into your fort. This time together will be restful and recharging; something I’m sure the both of you need.

After the movie, head outside for a brisk walk. Head to the nearest park or down to the river, where y’all can chat and hang out outside. If it’s too cold/hot, do a mini in home workout that has both of you laughing. I’m sure your abs will be hurting more from that. Maybe see who can hold a plank longer?

After that, I’m sure its time to rinse off. So put some bubbles in a nice warm bath and relax. You both need it. Enjoy this time together without any interruptions. Both of you get caught up in everyday life that has you not spending enough time with each other. I hope that you enjoy this post and stayed tuned for the next In Home Date Idea!
