Best Places to Propose in Chicago

Whether you’re planning a snowy trip to the Windy City or a summer vacay to go see the World Champ baseball team, Chicago is a gorgeous town with lots of romantic places to propose. Here are a couple popular (and not so popular) ideas:

    1. Sears Tower
      Not scared of heights? Perfect! With gorgeous views, the Sears Tower can’t be beat. Take her up to the 108th floor and get down on one knee. It’ll be a jaw-dropping proposal for sure!
    2. Art of Institute of Chicago
      The feelings that art puts among all of us. Have them block off a room for you to set up in and have your significant other walk in on you and all this gorgeous artwork. The Art Institute would be a romantic, yet unusual, place that no one will expect. (Image Credit Click Here)
      Where to Propose in Chicago
    1. The Bean
      I’m sure you’ve heard of this incredible landmark, but why not make it even more special? This gorgeous piece of artwork is historical to the city and is smack dab in the middle of everything.
    2. North Avenue Beach
      Talk about a stunning skyline view! Plus, the water backdrop couldn’t be dreamer. It’s seriously perfect for a proposal! (Image Credit Click Here)
      Where to Propose in Chicago
    1. Top of the Ferris Wheel
      Everyone has a thriller in them and what better way to wow your SO than to propose at the top of a Ferris Wheel overlooking the city of Chicago? What better way to pull out a ring than to surprise her on this gorgeous ride? Navy Pier has everything and more so take advantage after it with a small party or dinner with friends and family.
    2. Cubs Game
      So you and your significant other are big sports fan? You’ve always wanted to go to a Cubs game and see Wrigley Field. Why not surprise her with a proposal before the game? That’ll be a homerun!
    3. Millennium Park Fountain
      This is probably my favorite hence why I’ve said it for the last. Chicago is known for their gorgeous views and scenery, from The Bean to the Fountain, there’s a gorgeous spot in every inch of this park. The fountain has to be my favorite spot because just look at it. Try to even pull off a nighttime proposal with candles lighting up to the fountain. So many ideas. (Image Credit Click Here)

Wedding Proposal Video – Chicago Fashion Blogger Gets Engaged

Back in May 2013, we were asked to create a marriage proposal for an Inside Edition segment (see blog post here)! Obviously you can’t turn something like that down, talk about a fantastic opportunity! Then Dave came to us with the perfect scenario. His girlfriend is a fashion blogger in Chicago and loves creating new style trends through her blog, Style Sidebar. So we took outfits from her blog and created adjectives that both describe the outfit and Tiffany! Then we created a rouse to get her to Cuneo Mansion and Gardens (a local fashion show), and gave all her friends and family tickets to the show! When Tiffany showed up she noticed that each guest was someone special to her, and then she saw the incredible models (also friends and family) strut their stuff with her outfits on. What a wonderful surprise for her!

Last week, Dave sent us a very delightful surprise of his own – a professional video of the proposal! Obviously we have the footage from Inside Edition, but this is from their wedding videographer! Seriously, I love this proposal video… you can feel every emotion and exciting moment from that special day. And even though it’s almost two years later, this video is new to us so we are sharing with you! Enjoy :)

Holiday Proposals: Best Locations To Propose

The U.S. has so many romantic and endearing locations but we narrowed it down to the top 5 locations to propose during the holiday season!

 

5. Charleston, South Carolina

Shop and dine during the holiday festivities downtown or try wine tasting at a historic plantation (look right out of The Notebook!) because no matter where you go, Charleston beautifully decorates it’s town for the holiday season! You have multiple spots to capture the beauty, delicious food, and the charm of the south for your unforgettable engagement!

4. Breckenridge, Colorado

I’m dreaming of a White Christmas! For those of you that want an active and outdoor proposal you have the ski slopes and Race of The Santa in downtown Breckenridge. If you are looking for something a little more intimate try a private sleigh ride for a cozy proposal. There are multiple ski towns that do the Christmas season;here are a few other “snowy little towns” worth visiting: Park City, UT, Apsen, CO, and Telluride, CO.

3. Key West, Florida

Need a break from the chilly weather? Does your ideal holiday vacation consists of snowman made out of sand and sun tanning? Then Key West is calling your name. Enjoy private dining on the beach with the iconic sunset as your backdrop and you have yourself a romantic proposal!

2. Chicago, Illinois

Magnificent Mile draped in millions of holiday lights, Navy Pier’s indoor ice rink, or the German and craft inspired Christkindmarket there is an option for every type of couple and their interests!

Chicago Proposal Ice Skating

 

1. New York City, New York

You can’t beat the magical spirit of NYC during the holidays. Whether it’s ice skating at Rockefeller, a visit to Serendipity for frozen hot chocolate, or a kiss in times square during New Years this city has plenty of infamous spots as well as hidden gems for the perfect holiday proposal.
