From mountain camping trips to sunset horseback rides, summer is full of romantic opportunities and creative marriage proposals. While many choose to pop the question during the holidays, summertime provides the perfect backdrop for a more unique and original proposal, especially in the heart of southwest Colorado. In this article, we provide you with the inspiration you need for the perfect proposal. At Pine River Pawn, we have more than just engagement rings; we have the props and the equipment you need to make your proposal stand out from the rest!
If you and your significant other love the great outdoors, then what better way to propose than on a camping trip? Find the perfect spot, maybe near the place the two of you went camping or hiking for the first time, pitch the tent, and get the campfire going. When the stars come out, reminisce around the fire about all of the adventures that you have gone on together, and how you have even grander adventures planned for the future; then propose.
Pine River Pawn is your one-stop shop for both an engagement ring and any camping gear you might need to make this proposal complete. To take your proposal to the next level, pick up a guitar and serenade your significant other around the campfire before or during the proposal.
Catch of the Day
Do the two of you love being on or around the water? Then pick up a canoe and some fishing gear from Pine River Pawn and head out to one of the beautiful and scenic lakes in the area such as Vallecito Lake. Nothing is more relaxing or romantic than sitting on the lake with the one you love. Take a break at one of the little islands in the middle of the lake, or pull onto a secluded lakeside beach to pop the question. Set up a picnic with a champagne toast to celebrate. Bonus points if you cook up the trout you caught prior to the proposal.
Fall Bonus: Hunting Trip
If you are willing to wait until the fall to pop the question, hunting season makes for a unique time of the year to propose. Pine River Pawn can set you up with the right gun or bow for the type of hunting you do. Whether it’s your significant other’s first time hunting or they’re better with a gun or bow than you are, sharing such an intimate experience together can strengthen the bond that the two of you share. Plus, hunting might include one or a few of the three activities already listed.
Not only does Pine River Pawn have everything you need to create the perfect proposal, but also buying these items through a pawn shop will save you a lot of money in the beginning. Saving money on the proposal will allow you to spend more on other wedding-related costs down the road, which can grow costly.
