10 Fitch Luxurious Romantic Inn


Steal away to Upstate New York and propose at this picturesque Auburn Inn. The Perfect Proposal Package includes a two-night stay in a roomy suite, chocolate-dipped strawberries upon arrival, as well as roses, breakfast in bed, and a romantic dinner.

Southern Charm Engagement

NOLA’s Windsor Court Hotel


It doesn’t take a Southern Belle to appreciate the Southern Charm Proposal Package at NOLA’s Windsor Court Hotel, created in partnership with The Yes Girls. For $3,700 (plus tax), you get a memorable, one night stay in a suite with a proposal-ready balcony overlooking the Mississippi River. The hotel will also set up a private venue for you to propose if you’d prefer. Then, enjoy a five-course congratulatory dinner for two with wine pairings provided by the chef de cuisine and sommelier. But get this: You’ll receive a specialty ring box that has a hidden camera inside to capture the “yes” moment, as well as a photographer to shoot the proposal. We'd say "yes" to that!

What Reviewers Are Saying:
We decided to stay a little away from the crowds yet still close enough to get around the French Quarter. We were greeted right when we arrived. The process went smoothly. We were pleasantly surprised with the spacious room of the suite, and we got a great view over the Mississippi River. The room and the hotel itself is very clean and well-kept. But what makes it even better was the service. This is definitely a 5-star hotel!

Underwater Engagement

Hilton Barbados Resort


As if proposing beachside in Barbados isn't romantic enough, the resort has an even more memorable engagement idea up its sleeve. You can actually employ a Bridal Butler to help you plan an underwater engagement on one of the island’s famous shipwrecks. Then hit the pool, try surf school, or tour the Garrison Historic Area.

What Reviewers Are Saying:
I liked the additional services such as yoga, beach chairs and umbrellas - all for free. The service was wonderful.
