Proposal Tips

  1. Alabama has a fairly moderate climate, so weather shouldn't cause much trouble in your proposal planning. Just check the forecast as far in advance as possible, and plan your date accordingly. In case of sudden changes, plan for a backup location indoors.
  2. Make sure you capture the perfect memory of your proposal on camera! Whether that's with a professional photographer/videographer, or if you just set up a camera nearby, you'll definitely want pictures to remember the special moment when she says yes.
  3. Dress appropriately for your proposal location and season, but make sure you both look nice for photos. A great way to do this is to surprise them with a new outfit for your special date!
  1. Alabama is full of beautiful outdoor activities and natural tourist attractions, so summer is probably one of the best times to propose here. Try to plan a general idea of your proposal timeframe, but know that it will vary no matter what. Just know what day you want to propose and make sure the timing of your plans are all lined up.
  2. If you want her to really be surprised for the proposal, don't tell her any of your plans until the day of! Make an excuse to keep her schedule free, pack an outfit or two for her, and just say you have a special day planned.
  3. Always do your best to include your loved ones in the proposal! For locals proposing in sweet home Alabama, it can be as simple as proposing in front of all your family and friends or planning a surprise engagement party nearby. If you're proposing on a vacation, you can bring your family and friends along or just include them in your planning process. No matter what, make sure your family and friends hear about your engagement first before posting it all over social media.
