Part of what makes or breaks a marriage proposal is the place you choose. Houston may not be the first place you think of for romance, but if you know where to look, you'll find the magic. The following are some places to propose if you want to make the moment special.
Gerald D. Hines Waterwall Park
The Gerald D. Hines Waterwall Park is one place that could take your breath away. Just visit and take it all in. That beautiful waterfall in the middle of the park is the perfect place to pull out a pear shaped engagement ring and pop the question. Reach out to park officials about briefly cordoning off the area or go with the flow and wait for the right moment. However, don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good; if there are people around to witness the special moment, so what?
The Houston Arboretum is another beautiful place to consider. When you visit, you'll think you walked into a magical forest. It's filled with ponds, bridges, boardwalks, meadows, and many wildflowers. It's the perfect place to pop the question and have a date with your beloved. You can visit the sanctuary before you bring your partner. This will help you find that perfect place to propose.
McGovern Centennial Gardens
McGovern Centennial Gardens is a 15-acre public garden in Houston filled with so much beauty. There are many places to have a picnic with your partner. If you want to see something special, walk towards the top of the 30-foot garden mount. People who've visited the garden say this mount is the highlight of the garden. As you walk up this mount, you'll see beautiful foliage, and by the time you get to the top, you'll see how beautiful the garden looks. The top of that mount might be the best place to propose, or you can explore the garden until you find your special place.
The Japanese Garden is in Hermann Park. This park is about 5 acres, which may be smaller than other locations mentioned here, but it's still pretty big. The design is spectacular. It helps transport you to another place even though you're still in Houston. Part of the goal of the design is to highlight the landscape, and it does that. If you're thinking of getting a photographer for the big moment, you'll fall in love with the backdrop. You're going to see waterfalls, bridges, dogwoods, and stone paths. People who go there to propose like to do so under the cherry blossom trees or outside the teahouse.
Kemah Boardwalk is a whimsical place to propose. You can pop the question at the double-decker carousel, or you can do so while you're riding the Ferris wheel with your beloved. There are a million and one ways to pop the question in this theme park, and it's one of the most beautiful locations in Houston. You'll also have a whole audience there cheering you on and helping you celebrate. You'll give your future spouse something to remember as well as other people who might be there seeing you. Try to stay calm. Popping the question in front of so many people can be nerve-racking, but it's also pretty exciting.
Hopefully, you find the perfect place to propose at one of these locations. Try to be true to yourself; the site you choose has to feel right to you, so keep looking until you find it.
