Can you feel it already? LOVE is in the air and wedding season approaches!
Maybe we’re putting the cart before the horse…Before you get to the big day (or even start the planning process) your special person has to say, “YES!”
We know you want to give the girl (or guy) of your dreams the proposal they’ve always dreamed of. Afterall, you only get one chance to nail it!
In our 25+ years in the love business, we’ve learned a thing or two about the most iconic locations in the New Orleans area to get down on bended knee and we’ve come up with a few original ideas of our own. We want your night to be absolutely perfect so, we’re passing our them onto you.
When & Where to Ask the Most Important Question of your Life
There’s no question that our fun-loving city is FULL of romantic spots to pop the question so we’ve done our best to gather the most iconic, local spots for you to consider. Is your partner a “center of attention” type or are they more interested in intimacy? We’ve got ideas for both!
#1. Magnolia Bridge (aka Cabrini Bridge)- Bayou St. John at Sunset
While this beautifully lush bayou has witnessed several proposals in it’s day, it still remains a relatively intimate place to share with your special someone. Grab an artistically prepared lunch or dinner at Ralph’s on the Park before whisking her away to catch the sunset on Magnolia Bridge and top the entire day off with that one word you’re dying to hear.
Want to keep the excitement and energy going after the big ask? Book one of our luxury vehicles to pick you up and chauffeur you around to all of your favorite sites throughout the city while you sip champagne to celebrate. Or allow us to whisk you away to your favorite restaurant/bar where all of your friends and family are waiting to congratulate and celebrate with you!
#2. St. Charles Street in a New Orleans Trolley in the Evening Hours
Have you ever noticed how public or crowded places can feel more intimate than a small gathering? When surrounded by strangers, all of your focus is on each other and the world tends to disappear.
Here’s our idea: Take your proposal to the next level and book one of our classic New Orleans Trolleys! Invite her friends and family to pack the entire car (our Trolleys accommodate up to 30 people!) before you both hop in the front then, pop the question! When she says yes, all of your loved ones will be there to cheer, applaud, and celebrate the future with you both!
#3. Lake Pontchartrain at Sunset or Stargazing at Night
Whether your person is a sunset lover or a stargazer, the view doesn’t get much better than the banks of Lake Pontchartrain. Pack a picnic full of your favorite or a particularly memorable meal you’ve shared together to set the mood but don’t forget to include champagne, candles, a telescope (or download a stargazing app) and the real star of the evening, the ring!
Ask your favorite person to take a walk along the shore then, the rest is up to you! To upgrade the entire experience, book a getaway car like our stylish Rolls Royce to transport you home or to another destination of your choice to continue the celebration.
#4. Jackson Square in front of St. Louis Cathedral around 3pm on a Saturday
This idea is undeniably a proposal fit for the “all eyes on me” future bride as the busiest time of week in Jackson Square is at 3pm on Saturdays. If your partner ever questioned your willingness or ability to publicly display your love, that concern will immediately disappear when you announce to hundreds of onlookers that you can’t wait another second to spend the rest of your life with them!
Pro tip: Skip the hassle of parking during this busy time and upgrade from the casual (and possibly smelly) Uber when you book one of our Limousines or the Rolls Royce! You can share a cocktail, or two, on your way to and from the big moment without a single worry that you’re compromising the future you’re building with your favorite person.
#5. Steamboat Natchez for a Sunset Cruise
Dinner, drinks, live music, and dancing on the water at sunset; what more could you possibly ask for?! Planning that special moment can be incredibly stressful and difficult (especially if you’re not the planner in your relationship). When you opt for a sunset cruise on the Steamboat Natchez, all the hard work is done for you leaving you to focus on the most important question you’ll ever ask the love of your life.
Want to make this experience even more magical? Book one of our limousines or luxury vehicles for the to and from parts! You’ll be able to have a few cocktails on the way there to get some nerves out and on the way back you’ll have a sophisticated DD to ensure your safety while you toast champagne with your future bride.
