The leaves are beginning to change colors, jack-o’-lanterns are being placed on people’s doorsteps, and you finally get to wear that sweater-and-boots combo you’ve been staring at since June. That’s right: Fall is here! Along with the change of the seasons and the thousands of pumpkin spice lattes, autumn brings along a sweet nostalgia and romance that sets the perfect backdrop for a proposal. Here are some of our favorite out-of-the-box fall proposal ideas.
1. S’more romance
A quiet night next to a roaring fire is the ultimate in fall experiences. But before you set your marshmallows ablaze, sticking a gorgeous ring in one and surprising your partner with a proposal is the sweetest way to end the night.
2. Pumpkin play
Carve your proposal into a pumpkin (or two) for a ghoulish way to let them know you want to spend the rest of your life with them. Setting the scene with lots of warm candlelight will ensure a seamless proposal.
3. Lost in love
A popular attraction throughout the autumn months is heading out to explore a corn maze with your sweetheart. For a surprise they’re certain to never forget, get down on one knee and ask for their hand in marriage before making your way out of the maze to celebrate.
4. Wine and dine
Fall is the peak season for many wineries, offering a fantastic opportunity to whisk your partner away for a private wine tasting — you can learn about the grapes, explore the gorgeous setting, and, finally, pop the question with a glass in their hand.
5. Engagement kickoff
For sports lovers, the change of seasons means one thing and one thing only: football season! If your honey is a diehard sports fiend, then proposing at a stadium or even a sports-related event is a fun way to begin your engagement.
6. Sweet simplicity
Doughnuts, apples, cider and more — some of our favorite indulgences are available come fall. So why not keep it simple and propose to your sweetie with the help of a delicious dessert? You can hide the ring in their favorite food or get down on one knee while they’re enjoying a treat. Either way, they’re sure to love this sweet proposal.
