For all the Colorado natives, transplants, or anyone just stopping in for a visit, Colorado is a mountainous, wilderness wonderland perfect for a magic marriage proposal. With its majestic landscapes, abundance of wildlife, and thrilling outdoor activities, Colorado is plentiful in beauty and fun. We at Abby Sparks Jewelry can’t think of a better place to propose to the love of your life. Whether you’re in state or on vacation, you can make your Colorado proposal perfect with these 6 steps!

1. Brainstorm Proposal Ideas

You know exactly WHO you want to spend the rest of your life with but you don’t know exactly HOW you’re going to seal the deal. You’ve made the decision to propose in Colorado which is a great start, but how will you blow their mind with your thoughtfulness and great planning? Here’s a tip; get inspiration from things your significant other loves to do. Maybe your person loves hiking. A nature inspired proposal on a secluded trail could be just the thing. Consider popping the question during a unique experience you’re sharing together for the first time. Ask them to be your ride-or-die as you ride a dog sled through a frosted forest or plan a dreamy picnic in a valley beneath towering mountains. A romantic mountain getaway is never a bad way to make the love of your life your forever love. Colorado is the land of amazing engagement proposal ideas where the sky’s the limit and there is never a lack of unparalleled experiences to be had. Still stuck on ways to propose? Take a page from our client Mike’s book. With the Colorado landscape stretched out beneath them, Mike proposed to Clara on a ski lift above the the mountain tops with a 14k yellow gold and sapphire custom engagement ring named and made just for her.

2. Choose a Dreamy Location

There’s no shortage of dreamy backdrops in Colorado, the problem is having to choose only one in the abundance. The state of Colorado has a vast number of parks, mountain peaks, and terrains to choose from. Proposing during the fall or winter? A snowy hike, ski town vacation, or autumn colors in the Rocky Mountain National Forest would be the perfect setting to pop the question. Thinking of a summer or spring proposal? There’s not much else more majestic than saying yes under a towering waterfall, getting snuggly in a hot spring nestled in the mountains, or a sandy proposal in the awe-inspiring Great Sand Dunes National Park. Our client Taylor definitely knows how to choose his proposal location. One of the most beautiful places in Colorado, Taylor asked Carolyn to be his wife while they were nordic skiing at Devil’s Thumb with a unique yellow gold and diamond custom engagement ring made exclusively for her. Talk about engagement goals!

Imagine this. You’re with your favorite person. You’re down on one knee. You’re opening a box with the ring of their dreams and…you blank out! Don’t be caught looking like a gaping fish. Plan your engagement speech ahead of time! There is no shame in practicing in front of the mirror or writing down what to say when you’re proposing. Planning your speech ahead of time is great because you can collect your thoughts, include everything you love about your person, and you’ll be far less nervous knowing you’re not going to have to think on your feet or stumble over your words. Not only will your fiancée-to-be be surprised at your engagement and head-over-heels over their sparkly new engagement ring, they’ll probably cry with love and joy at your well thought out and touching speech. You know Laura isn’t just beaming at her one-of-a-kind, 14k yellow gold and lab-grown moissanite custom engagement ring. She’s overjoyed at her man’s proposal and probably feels like the luckiest woman in the word to be getting married to our client, Bobby.

If you don’t have pictures, did it really happen? OF COURSE. But maybe not. YES, it did but your significant other will be happy to know that their momentous moment was captured on camera. You’re proposing in drop-dead gorgeous Colorado. Not taking advantage of the beautiful scenery for a proposal photo that will have your social media following in tears is almost a crime. Stunning and perfectly timed engagement photos take some planning, but they are essential for ensuring that your Colorado proposal is absolutely perfect. Enlist the help of your family and friends or hire a photographer to hide in the bushes to capture your special moment. Our client Matt made sure to have multiple cameras in reliable hands ready on shore while he took his now fiancée, Kelly, onto the lake to pop the question with a 14k rose gold, colorless, pink, and yellow diamond custom engagement ring designed just for her with Matt’s help.

If you or your love is lucky enough to have family and friends close by, there is nothing better than to be proposed to with the people you care about bearing witness. Not only do you get your marriage proposal caught on multiple cameras, you also get to celebrate right away with your biggest fans. Don’t tell them about it over social media or by phone call. Get them involved to create a truly special and memorable experience. Our client John has the right idea. What initially was a ski trip planned to celebrate his birthday turned into a marriage proposal to his girlfriend, Jessica, with their closest friends and family to cheer them on. As if the Colorado backdrop wasn’t perfect enough, John gets extra brownie points by proposing with a Colorado inspired diamond engagement ring featuring intricate mountain peaks in the rose gold setting.
