Proposal Tips

  1. North Carolina is a popular vacation spot for relaxation and romance. Whether you want to propose high in the mountains or at the beach with your toes in the sand, keep the weather in mind! Check the forecast, try to avoid rain, and have a back-up plan for any crazy weather changes.
  2. Almost every location in NC will look amazing in photos. It's such a beautiful state, and the background will perfectly reflect the sweet moment when she says yes. Just make sure you have a great photographer there to catch everything in pictures! Book ahead, plan the perfect lighting, and you'll always have gorgeous pictures to remember that big day.
  3. With such a beautiful proposal location, you and your future spouse should look your best, too! One of the cutest ways to plan your outfits for the proposal is by surprising her with a special new date outfit. You can either buy the outfit yourself and gift it before your date, or send her shopping with friends and your credit card!
  1. Choose the date for your proposal on a day that will be most meaningful. If you have a holiday anniversary, special traditions, or any noteworthy dates, that’s when you should plan to get down on one knee. There’s no such thing as too much romance!
  2. If you're visiting North Carolina on a special vacation, she may be suspicious of your plans. Try to keep the surprise by making excuses, going in a group, or planning your trip around another holiday or anniversary. That way, it will seem like the trip itself is the only surprise.
  3. Always do your best to include your loved ones in the proposal! For locals, 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.
