Popping the Question in Las Vegas: The Best Proposal Ideas
Has Cupid struck you with his arrow? Valentine’s Day always has been and always will be a popular time for proposals. However, proposing on Valentine’s Day can be difficult because it’s a precarious balance. On one hand, it’s the most romantic day of the year and there’s no better way to celebrate your love than with a proposal. On the other hand, Valentine’s Day has a reputation for being a little cliche or cheesy if it isn’t done right. If you’re planning on giving your partner something even sweeter than chocolates this Valentine’s Day, we’ve got eight Las Vegas proposal ideas to help sweep them off their feet!
Find the proposal that perfectly matches your loved one below:
For the Adventurer:
- Sunrise Hot Air Balloon Ride: Rise and shine! A sunrise hot air balloon ride (priced from $199) is perfect for early birds! This package includes a one hour ride, champagne breakfast with light hors d’oeuvres, and unobstructed views of the Strip, Red Rock Canyon, and surrounding mountains. No doubt, this Vegas proposal idea will leave you both on cloud nine.
- The Top of the World Restaurant: Take your relationship to new heights, literally. 844 feet in the air to be exact! While there are an abundance of fine dining restaurants with extraordinary views of the strip, The Top of the World at Stratosphere Tower is a step above the rest. Voted “The Most Romantic Restaurant in Las Vegas”, this hot spot features an unparalleled, rotating 360 degree view. Combined with the impressive international menu developed by “Chopped” chef Rick Giffen, dinner at The Top of the World is sure to be an evening to remember. The introductory Romance Proposal Package starts at $185 (plus tax and gratuity).
For the Die-Hard Vegas Fan:
- Bellagio Fountains: It’s a rarity to find anything that is free on the Strip, but the Bellagio Fountains are both free and beautiful! Considering that, it’s no wonder why they are one of the biggest and most popular attractions in Vegas, especially when it comes to Las Vegas proposal ideas. But beware, getting a prime viewing spot at night may be difficult. Planning a proposal at this spot is also sure to come with countless spectators. If you’re adamant for a Las Vegas proposal that allows you to feel the mist of the fountains on your face, you should time with the Bellagio Fountain showtimes. Crowds often gather before the start of a show, which is every half hour during the day (3 to 8PM) and every 15 minutes at night (8PM to midnight). If you’re hoping for a Bellagio Fountain proposal without the crowds, consider splurging for a Bellagio room with a fountain view.
For the Nature Lover:
- Bellagio Conservatory Gardens: If your loved one prefers something more serene and tranquil, get down on one knee at the stunning Bellagio Conservatory Gardens, an ever-changing 14,000-square-foot floral playground. This is a perfect spot if your significant other loves to walk around and see the colorful sights of Las Vegas. Start by suggesting a stroll through the famed hotels to see the stunning architecture and design of Las Vegas, then end your walk at the Bellagio Gardens and pop the question! We suggest going early in the morning or late at night if you want to avoid crowds.
- Red Rock Canyon: If the Strip doesn’t strike your fancy for a Las Vegas proposal, go off the grid at Red Rock Canyon. Bike ride proposals are a popular choice, especially when paired with a picnic lunch. We recommend starting at sunrise and bringing lots of water, especially during the warm season. Avid mountain bikers love the Cottonwood Valley Mountain Bike Loop while road cyclists are wowed by the paved loop at the Red Rock Conservation Area. If a bike ride isn’t up your alley, hike to a romantic viewpoint to get down on one knee. If you’re not sure where to go, McGhie’s private guided hiking and bike tours can help you plan out your route. Call ahead and a guide can suggest the best spot for a romantic desert proposal. If the scenery hasn’t already, a Red Rock Canyon proposal is sure to leave her breathless!
For the Foodie:
- Bartolotta Ristorante di Mare at Wynn: If the way to your love’s heart is through their stomach, then consider the Wynn’s Bartolotta Ristorante di Mare. Award-winning Chef Paul Bartolotta knows Italian-Mediterranean fine dining. While the main dining floor is beautiful, call or place an online reservation for an intimate outdoor cabana table. Inspired by coastal dining in Italy, it’s safe to say that Bartolotta Ristorante di Mare and romance go hand in hand. Keep in mind, dinner hours are from 5:30 PM until 10:00 PM, so make your plans far in advance.
For the Traveler:
- The Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas: Nothing screams romance more than Valentine’s Day in Paris. And if you can’t bring her to the actual city of love, The Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas might be the next best thing. While it’s only half the height of the real Eiffel Tower in France, the Las Vegas version of this famed landmark doesn’t disappoint when searching for the best proposal locations in the city. One option is to suggest lunch at Mon Ami Gabi before taking a glass elevator ride up to the proposal spot. Another option is to pop the question first before dining at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant which offers a variety of packages and enhancements.
For the Introvert:
- A Suite Proposal: Consider sending your partner out on a Las Vegas scavenger hunt or on a shopping trip to get them out of the hotel room. When they return, make sure the mood is set – lights down low with a mix of your significant other’s favorite love songs playing softly in the background. Make a trail of flameless candles or rose petals that leads to you, a ring, and a bottle of champagne. That way you can pop the bubbly after popping the question!
The most important thing to keep in mind when you are proposing is that, in the end, it’s simply about the two of you. How and when your proposal happens should be a direct reflection of your loved one’s preferences and your history together. Let Tahiti Village help you brainstorm romantic ideas and allow this Valentine’s Day to be the start of a new chapter in your fairytale.
