5 Best Marriage Proposal Ideas During COVID-19

Occasions, celebrations, and events in our lives are looking a lot different lately. Even though we are all #stayinghome, we cannot allow engagements and marriage proposals to get canceled along with the rest of 2020. There are plenty of unique ways to make sure you and your sweetheart to still have that special moment! Check out all our favorite marriage proposal ideas during COVID-19 times below:

Rent a Local Airbnb and Celebrate with a Few Friends

Airbnb is enforcing protocols such as gap days between bookings and extra cleaning and sanitation procedures. Rent a nice place to celebrate and have a dinner party or rooftop gathering of a few of our favorite people. Remember to stay safe and follow all the house rules.

Order From Your Favorite Restaurant for an Intimate Dinner at Home

5-star dining doesn’t have to happen at the fanciest restaurant in town. Many high-end eateries are allowing special menus for taking out, even some with multiple courses. Ask your local spot what they offer and surprise your loved one with a beautiful dinner setup at home on your patio or in your dining room. Incorporate some games together like Jenga or Table Topics for a fun date night!

Picnic At The Park

Many parks are open (as long as you distance yourself from other groups), making it a great marriage proposal idea during COVID-19. Pack a picnic, or order a meal from your favorite local spot, and enjoy a nice date out in the open air in the sunshine.
