Creating the perfect proposal

Let’s be honest- how many of you have been dreaming about your fairytale engagement? You know, the one where your special someone follows those “7 commandments of proposing”. I actually got engaged recently and my fiancé did an AMAZING job planning the proposal. It even worked out that about 6 of the 7 “commandments” were followed ? (my nails weren’t painted because that would have been a giveaway since they’re never painted). He planned a spontaneous trip for me to visit him in Colorado, which included a hike (I kept trying to change the location of the hike- oops!!) in Estes Park at Kruger Rock. About an hour and a half later we finally made it to the top of Kruger Rock, surrounded by the breathtaking scenary, and he completely surprised me by proposing. Not only that, but he had the best secret photographer in the world, my aunt!!! Needless to say I was very surprised. One of the photos below is where she was hiding the entire time waiting for us!

The best part about the whole proposal experience is that it was completely about Ben and I and the things we like to do! As soon as we hiked down we got ice cream and calzones for lunch, drove the Ridgeview pass, took a nap, and ate cheese and crackers for dinner. Lucky for him, we had connections in Colorado so the planning was a little bit easier. But if you’re the one proposing this can be overwhelming!! Where do you even start with the planning with all these steps?! CARE Travel would LOVE to help you plan this once in a lifetime moment, as we specialize in romantic escapes. Here are some of the things we can customize just for you….. Engagement PackagesWhen you think of engagements I’m sure champagne, roses, photos, candlelight dinners, and other romantic gestures pop into your mind!
