You have been planning to pop the question but you are waiting for the right moment. Perhaps you need to create that moment. Spontaneity is romantic but let’s not make organization a bad thing. It means you want the proposal to be perfect or at least what you and your partner consider perfect. 

If you are from Phoenix or are traveling there with your significant other, this could be the right moment for your proposal to happen. This location has many mesmerizing spots and offers fun activities that create memorable moments for visitors. Take this opportunity and plan thoroughly before making such a huge step in life. Go over the following points and surprise your partner with the best moment together.

Decide On The Date

If you are in Phoenix for your anniversary or the day you first met, then highlight that day with the next big step. It is symbolic and makes your day that more special. However, if you are on a regular holiday, pick a day when it is convenient to have everything ready. Don’t rush and stress over the small things. The date is going to be the best one anyway. An extra tip is not to wait for the last day. Do it in the middle of your vacation so you can also enjoy your time as a freshly engaged couple.

Shop For The Ring

You probably already have the ring because you have been waiting for this trip to make the proposal happen, that was the plan. However, a weekend getaway in Phoenix could be your quick decision that turns out to be the perfect moment to ask for your partner’s hand.

In this case, you have to act fast and find that special ring while you are on your vacation. Don’t worry, you will be able to buy an engagement ring in a jewelry store very easily. Scottsdale boasts of various shops that offer different styles, so you will get your perfect piece. If you can’t make a decision, go with a simple and elegant ring. 

Pick A Location

Choosing the right spot is the frame for the proposal. It depends on whether you want to go with something extravagant or more private. Phoenix will cater to whatever you think of. If you both appreciate street art, take a stroll down the Roosevelt Row Arts District. It boasts art venues and galleries but also food and drink from local bars. The so-called RoRo (Roosevelt Row) is well-known for its murals which are a great spot for a proposal. 

If your partner is the adventurous type, enjoying hiking and nature, you don’t want to miss out on a hiking tour on the West or the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Can you imagine a better view than one of the Great Wonders of the World?

The romantic in you, on the other hand, is looking for a magical sunset to pop the question. You can have that, too. A hot air balloon ride overlooking the Sonoran Desert is the most luxurious way to create that special occasion. 

Capture The Moment

Hire a professional photographer if you have the time. You will thank yourself in 20 years if you have the photographs to prove your wonderful time together in Phoenix. It is once-in-a-lifetime and we know you want to have that experience captured. Get someone local because they know these locations well and have learned how to make the photos the best possible. Before hiring them, explain your plan and what you expect from them so there are no misunderstandings. 


Just breathe and don’t make a big fuss about it. You want it to be perfect but it is already perfect because you have decided to marry your partner. Everything else is just an addition. If something doesn’t go as planned, that is fine. Be realistic with your expectations and just enjoy the moment.
