Enchanting Fall Proposal Ideas

August 15th, 2022

The changing leaves, cooler temperatures, and family-oriented holidays all help to make fall one of the most beloved seasons. If your partner is a particular fan of fall, then it's a perfect time to plan a romantic and meaningful proposal. Capitalize on what makes this season unique and the opportunities it presents. Our team here at Long Jewelers has compiled a list of some of our favorite fall proposal ideas we have heard over the years. Add a personalized spin to show your partner how much time and effort you put into making them feel special.

A Walk in the Park

If your partner is outdoorsy, they will not suspect a thing when you ask to take them for a walk through the park. The warm colors of the fall leaves and crisp breeze will make for a magical setting.

Lead them to a surprise picnic you have set up with all their favorite treats, and maybe some photos of the two of you and significant memorabilia from your relationship. They will be thrilled at the scenery and the work you put into making this moment special.


“Friendsgiving” has become a popular trend among millennials wherein a group of friends will get together for Thanksgiving dinner. This is a perfect opportunity for a proposal, especially if your partner is particularly close with their group of friends.

Once the meal is finished and the table is set, take the opportunity to make a toast before everyone digs in, and you pop the big question.

Halloween Costume Photos

For those with a partner who has a particular affinity for Halloween, costumes, and all things spooky, an October 31st proposal is a spectacular idea. Dress up as one of your partner’s favorite characters or something romantic like prince charming.

When the two of you are posing for photos of costumes together, surprise them by getting down on one knee! You will have unique photos of your proposal that will be special to you both for a lifetime.

Pumpkin Carving

A classic autumn pastime, pumpkin carving offers a unique opportunity to pop the question. Tell your partner you want to wait to reveal your creations to each other once they are finished.

While you are carving, start a conversation about your relationship, feelings, and readiness for a serious commitment. Then, turn your pumpkin around to reveal a “Will you marry me’” message. Sneak the ring box inside your pumpkin for an added bit of surprise.
