Celebrating Summer Love: Your Ultimate Proposal Guide

July 15th, 2021

A proposal is a moment that will be remembered forever. The breathless instant when your life comes into clear focus. 


Take advantage of the season’s balmy warm nights by proposing on a rooftop with magnificent views. Not only does this location make for an impressive photo op, but you can take this opportunity to utilize your birds-eye-view. Consider a large letter sign spelling out “Marry Me” or if budget allows, an even grander gesture would be to completely transform an empty rooftop into a twinkling, enchanted evening. To make things more intimate, start the evening with a candlelit dinner for two before popping the question.

If you can see her falling in love with a rooftop proposal with city views, consider a glamorous engagement ring mixed with modern design elements. In collaboration with Hayley Paige, this rose gold wrap engagement ring by Hearts on Fire is a brilliant choice.


For those looking to get down on one knee and make a speech dedicated to love, this one's for you. Spend the day at your favorite park with a romantic picnic. Carefully curate a meal of her favorite food and drinks to enjoy a calm and intimate outdoor experience before popping the question.

If she appreciates small romantic moments like sunset strolls and picnics in the park, she’ll enjoy an engagement ring that blends romance and old-world charm. This three stone vintage-inspired ring from Verragio’s Renaissance collection is one she’ll fall in love with for years to come.


If you’re an adventurous duo, dropping down to one knee during a nature hike will create a breathtaking backdrop. Decide on a spot you both frequently enjoy. Whether it be viewing the sunset mountainside or hiking your way to a cascading waterfall, like the one at Hayden Run Falls, you can’t go wrong with beautiful sweeping views and nature on your side.

For the woman who loves keeping active and frequents the great outdoors, a smooth piece like this solitaire engagement ring from TACORI is a striking option. The sleek effortless ring will remain snug and secure during all the adventures that await.


A proposal featuring waterfront views is one for the big screen. Perfect for warm weather, choose a beach or lake with spectacular views. If you have a sentimental scene in mind, add a layer of romance by choosing a spot with a special meaning. Maybe it’s where you two had your first kiss, or a memorable summer day spent lounging in the sun falling more and more in love. If you’re feeling venturesome, boat through Lake Milton and as the sun begins to set, pop the question.

If she loves the ocean, she will adore the hypnotic swirling design of Gabriel & Co’s entwined halo engagement ring. Sure to stand out, the elegant twists are a dreamy reflection of your interwoven journey, hand in hand.
