Maine Marriage Proposal Ideas

If you’re looking to propose outdoors, this is the place to do it. Maine is known for its nature and national parks. The state houses 65 historical lighthouses that would be the perfect, romantic backdrop for any proposal. Maine even has its own islands. You can explore them on a boat tour or by ferry. The most popular is said to be Peaks Island because it has beautiful architecture and is surrounded by natural beauty. Maine will give you the best of both worlds from magical snowy winters to glistening beach sunrises in the summer (maybe even the other seasons too).

Proposal Tips

  1. When you begin to plan your proposal, make sure the weather will be nice on the day you plan to pop the question. Maine tends to be cold, and it snows a lot in the winter! 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. If you choose to have a snowy proposal in Maine, bundle up and stay warm for your proposal, especially if it’s outdoors. Get your girl a nice new sweater, some boots, and maybe a cute scarf for some extra comfort!
  1. Try to plan a general idea of your proposal timeframe, but know that it will vary no matter what. You may know you want to ask the question within a certain half hour, but the exact moment when you get down on one knee can usually happen naturally.
  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. It's always important to include your loved ones in the proposal. You can have them present for the proposal, hiding in the background, or waiting elsewhere for an engagement party! Just make sure your family and friends are involved in your dream engagement.
