Ah, summer…sunny days, scorching temperatures, and weddings galore…I love it all! With summertime being the season for marriages and romance, you might be thinking even more about proposing to that special someone in your life. But how? Your engagement is a memory that you and your loved one will cherish forever, so make it extra special by choosing one of these 10 Kansas locations.
1.) Botanica Wichita
The flowers are in full bloom (much like your love), so why not pop the question at this colorful location?
2.) Bed & Breakfast
Kansas is home to numerous B&Bs, offering cozy accommodations, delicious meals, and romance galore (if you do propose at a B&B, make sure to inquire about a "romance" package with champagne, strawberries, and chocolate).
3.) Jazz Club (Uncle Bo's Blues Bar, Topeka)
Sipping martinis in an intimate setting whilst being serenading by the soothing sounds of a saxophone? Perfection! *Side Note: Make sure to go on a night without any special events/musicians, or the bars will be packed.*
4.) Konza Prairie
There is no better place to begin your new life together than the tranquil Flint Hills.
Kansas is a gorgeous state, so no matter where you decide to picnic, it is going to be beautiful (just don't forget to pack the bug spray.. or the ring)!
6.) Inside a beautiful cathedral
I once read a story about a man who proposed to his girlfriend in front of their whole congregation after mass -- how sweet is that?! On that note, I have been to a lot of places in my life and must say that Kansas has the most beautiful churches of any state. If you are religious, this is definitely an option to consider (Pictured is the Cathedral of the Plains in Victoria, which I am partial to because that's where my husband and I were married).
7.) Keeper of the Plains at dusk
Those lights = Pure romance.
8.) Floating above the world
When you become engaged, you'll feel as though you're on top of the world -- so why not actually pop the question while floating on top of the world in a hot air balloon?
I know I say it a lot, BUT Kansas really does have the clearest, most beautiful skies that are ideal for stargazing. Grab your honey, pile your truck high with pillows and blankets, uncork a bottle of wine, and let the proposal magic happen!
10.) Kansas winery (Holy Field Vineyard, Basehor)
Speaking of uncorking a bottle of wine, have you ever visited one of our outstanding local wineries? If you have, you know how intimate and romantic they are. If you haven't, what are you waiting for?!
