Wedding Proposal Ideas

Love is always in the air here at Elkins Resort on Priest Lake. If you’re thinking of popping the big question, impress your significant other with these 5 fun and unique wedding proposal ideas.

Scavenger hunt

Come up with a few places that are meaningful to your relationship and send your partner to visit them, it’s even more fun if they include a few friends or family members. Add in a salon appointment or a massage to help make the day relaxing, after all, you’re making them run around all day long! Along the way, have cards describing what each stop means and clues to the next stop. At the end of the scavenger hunt, propose with the friends and family that were involved in the planning to celebrate this joyous occasion together!

Photoshoot marriage proposal

What better way to capture one of the biggest moments in your life than by arranging a photoshoot marriage proposal? Hire a professional photographer for a photoshoot and pop the question while on location. The photographer can capture the special moment right then and there. Plus, these photos make great wedding announcements!

Proposing on a hike

For the couple who loves to spend time outdoors, proposing on a hike is another unique wedding proposal idea. Pick a destination that means something to both of you or pick a new hike that has a spectacular endpoint, like a waterfall, top of a mountain peak, or a lake. Just don’t forget to bring your phone or camera to capture the special moment.
For example, there are many hiking trails at Priest Lake that make for a beautiful backdrop to any marriage proposal or Priest Lake wedding.

Create a lifetime movie

With movie making skills accessible to almost anyone who has a smartphone, creating a video montage to play before you propose is one of our favorite wedding proposal ideas. Take some time and record yourself visiting places you both enjoy as a couple. Maybe it’s the bar you met at or walking at your favorite park or the first place you said I love you. Show the movie in front of friends and family members at a dinner or an event, on your home TV right before your favorite show, or get even more creative and show it at your local theater!

Destination proposal
