Planning a romantic getaway to propose

The Setting

Choosing a setting to propose can be a daunting task, so it’s not surprising that many people opt for a romantic getaway to pop the question. Getting away from the pressures and interruptions of everyday life allows you to plan every aspect of your special moment. If you’re planning to get engaged on a date with special meaning to you both - like an anniversary or occasion like Valentine's Day - then choosing the right location can really set the scene for the perfect proposal.

The Timing

Depending on how you envision proposing, you might also want to consider the time of year for your getaway. Maybe you’re dreaming of getting down on one knee while outside on a sunny spring day or while cosying up inside in front of an open fire. Remember to plan something that reflects the kind of couple you are and try to integrate some personal aspects of your relationship into the moment.

The Ring

Another big decision is, of course, the ring. Hopefully, your partner will have dropped some subtle hints on their preferred style. If you're still not sure, try asking a trusted friend or family member for advice or use a token ring for the proposal so you can then choose the actual one together. For more handy tips on choosing the perfect engagement ring we’ve shared ROX Diamonds & Thrills Proposal Checklist below. Look for advice on the whole ring choosing and buying process - ensuring you’ll be fully prepared when the time arrives.

The Ideal Destination

If you’re considering the beautiful Cotswolds as the destination for your proposal, then the Manor at Weston is ideally situated. Our luxury rooms, Double AA Rosette status dining and extensive gardens will also add that extra touch of grandeur for this once in a lifetime event.
