Here are five fantastic ideas for asking your soon-to-be fiance to spend the rest of their life with you. Proposal ideas so good, your partner won’t be able to say no.

Coronado Island Pier

If you’ve ever spent time lazing away on Coronado Island, you know how magical the day seems. But if you’re planning a surprise engagement, you’re sure to make the day go down in history. Take the ferry from downtown San Diego to the Coronado Island Ferry Landing. Halfway there pop the big question. By the time you land, she’s got the custom-made diamond ring on her finger.

Once on shore, the photo opportunities with San Diego in the background are priceless. Once you officially tie the knot, you can return in complete wedding attire for the perfect wedding photo. Don’t forget to celebrate with champagne at the historic Hotel del Coronado. The only thing competing with your princess cut diamond is your winning smile.

La Jolla Cove

When you’ve taken in a sunset at La Jolla Coves, not much can compare. Okay, maybe being asked to spend the rest of your life with the person you love.

First, stop at La Jolla Scoops for a double-dip of her favorite ice cream. When she’s not looking, slip in the perfect diamond engagement ring into the folds of chocolate. As she licks to the center, walk towards the La Jolla coves as sunset hits. The breathtaking views and sweetness of the ice cream culminate in an impeccable proposal.

Asking the love of your life to say, “I do,” has never been easier with La Jolla Coves in the background.

Balboa Park

Any San Diegan will tell you there’s much to love about Balboa Park. With its colorful history and magical nooks, you’re bound to find the right place to get down on one knee. Most couples would agree that  El Prado, in the center by the fountain, is ideal.

Before flashing the emerald cut engagement ring, take in a play at the Old Globe. Shakespeare adds class and style to any proposal idea and location. To be or not to be my bride is definitely the question.

San Diego Zoo

The San Diego Zoo is the perfect place to ask your fiance to marry you. Popping the question in a habitat fit for any creature adds a touch of playfulness to any engagement.

The San Diego Zoo has many choices for the official “will you marry me?” including the new Africa Rocks Exhibit and strolling down Treetops Way. If you want to soar to new heights, ask the big question high up on the SkyFari Aerial Tram. During the holiday season, take a photo with Santa in Santa’s Workshop during the Jungle Bells Celebration. At night the zoo comes alive with lights, music, and festivities.

Between the custom-made marquise cut engagement ring and uniqueness of the environment, she’ll be reveling in the proposal for years to come.

Sunset Sailboat Cruise

When you take a “cruise” down memory lane, you’ll remember the sunset sailboat cruise in San Diego. There’s nothing more magical than popping the question as the colors stretch in either direction. If you time it during whale watching season, you may catch a glimpse of the annual gray whale migration.

Bring along some ready champagne to celebrate once she slips the handcrafted jewelry on her finger. Sip the effervescent bubbles and revel in the glinting magic of a perfect wedding proposal.

While all of these San Diego proposal ideas and locations make perfect choices for popping the big question, the first step is to find the ideal engagement ring. Contact Davie & Sons for help in selecting or designing the right wedding ring to match the unique proposal— we have just what you desire.
