You don’t have to travel the world over to find a romantic spot to create a setting for the ultimate marriage proposal. Wyoming’s natural beauty easily lends itself to this type of scenario. Here are some great places and ideas for when you finally get the nerve to pop that life-changing question.
1. Hot Air Balloon Ride In Grand Teton
Love is in the air, literally! Nothing could be more epic than being proposed to in a hot air balloon while floating over the breathtakingly beautiful Teton landscape. The gentle breezes carry you along and give you a bird's eye view of a landscape that few people have the opportunity to enjoy from this unique perspective.
2. Inspiration Point
Inspiration Point, in the Grand Teton National Park, provides an awesome view with dramatic landscapes of natural beauty. After you have popped the question at Inspiration Point, top the night off with a five-star dining experience in a beautiful setting at Jenny Lake Lodge Dining Room.
3. Jackson Hole Aerial Tram
What better time for a rendezvous? Why not ride the Aerial Tram up to the top of Rendezvous Mountain and have a nice romantic dinner at Couloir Restaurant located in the lodge at the summit of Bridger Gondola? You can enjoy excellent cuisine while taking in the breathtaking view with your soon-to-be fiancé.
4. Saratoga Resort & Spa
Another great place to pop the question is at the Saratoga Resort & Spa in one of their intimate tepee covered pools. Or, you can also relax in a larger stone-enclosed pool/hot spring. After soaking in the hot springs, you can enjoy fireside cocktails in the hotel, a full-service spa, and a micro-brewery.
5. Brush Creek Ranch
Brush Creek Ranch provides an all around romantic experience. This is a luxury dude ranch in Saratoga that offers luxurious accommodations and adventures. Why not propose while trail riding? You may even find yourself riding off into the sunset.
6. Sunset at Yellowstone Lake
Yellowstone Lake has some beautiful sunsets. Champagne won't be the only thing popping here. Take some chilled champagne, watch the sunset, and pop that question!
7. Albany Lodge
You could pop the question at one of Albany Lodge's secluded mountain cabins in Laramie. The lodge offers great views of the Snowy Mountain Range. While you're there, be sure to take your bride or groom-to-be snowmobiling, hunting, fishing, or on the adventurous ATV trails. The secluded mountain cabins make this a very romantic option.
8. Historic Elk Mountain Hotel
How about a romantic picnic in an awesome setting? Enjoy the ultimate Wyoming picnic at The Historic Elk Mountain Hotel located in no other than Elk Mountain. They provide a basket of white wine, smoked salmon, cheeses, bread, samosas, potato salad, mixed salad, fresh fruits, and apple pie for that ultimate romantic picnic.
9. Table Mountain Vineyards
A lot of couples are getting engaged at wineries these days. Table Mountain Vineyards, in Torrington, creates custom wine labels. Who wouldn't be impressed getting a bottle of wine with a 'Will You Marry Me" label?
Make your engagement a memorable experience by mixing a little creativity in with Wyoming’s stunning landscape.
