So this is it. You’ve decided to pop the question to your other half, and while you’re excited by the idea of spending the rest of your life with them, you’re probably overwhelmed with choices and ideas for how to propose. We get it, it’s a big moment in your life, and you want to do it right.
Wherever you are in South East Queensland, whether it be Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast or the Gold Coast, we’ve done all the hunting around for you. That’s right, we’ve searched high and low to find the best proposal packages – making the whole proposal planning process a whole lot easier for you, while also pretty much guaranteeing an outstanding and treasured moment you will both remember and cherish forever.
There’s nothing more thrilling and exiting than a private helicopter flight over stunning scenery. It’s an opulent and incredibly fun experience to have with your loved one, and when it comes to proposals, we’ve come across two helicopter companies in Brisbane and The Gold Coast that have specialised packages for proposals in mind.
V2 helicopters in Brisbane offers 3 proposal packages to suit various budgets. Every package includes a flight over Brisbane city and each package increases in price depending on how many extras you would like to include such as glasses of champagne, a photographer to capture the moment or a personalised message such as ‘will you marry me’ written in the sand as you fly over.
Gold Coast Hele Tours also offers this romantic sand writing addition across a stunning Gold Coast beach, plus your helicopter trip will give you views right across the coastline. While V2 helicopters have incredibly romantic and comprehensive packages for proposals, if you just can’t beat the views of the coastline, Gold Coast Hele Tours is a wonderful choice too.
A hot air balloon ride is an incredibly popular and romantic activity for couples, making it a dreamy choice for any proposal – particularly if neither of you have ever been in one before. It will be a new and exciting experience for both of you. Plus, you can’t beat the scenic views.
Our top hot air balloon pick for proposals is from ‘Hot Air Balloon’. They have a full proposal experience package on offer where not only will you receive a spectacular 60 minute balloon flight, but you’ll also get a private transfer, gourmet breakfast at Oreilly’s Vineyard with a complimentary glass of champagne on arrival, along with a romantic portrait photograph.
Bribie Island has the most romantic private cruise option you could think of – gondola rides. These ornate and beautiful boats are stunning and make for the perfect secluded setting for your proposal. Bribie Isand Gondola has a number of options to choose from which includes a 1 or a 1.5 hour cruise, drinks and your choice of food to eat together while out on the water.
If a gondola isn’t really your thing and the Sunshine Coast is in your sights, Noosa Dreamboats offers a truly unique and romantic way to propose. This private cruise on a beautifully handcrafted, timber boat will take you out to the stunning Lake Cooroibah. The entire cruise takes 90 minutes with three proposal packages available to choose from. Each package includes a fresh picnic, complimentary digital photos along with romantic extras such as French champagne on ice and decorations depending on the package you choose.
Just a bit of seclusion in a picturesque spot with some delicious food is more than enough to make for a proposal that will be remembered and cherished forever. Hence why romantic picnic proposals are so popular. But rather than trying to lay out the picnic yourself, find someone who can arrange it for you. Not only will your cosy picnic spot look amazing, but the food will be to die for too.
We’ve found two perfect picnic picks for you to choose from. The exotic proposal package from Exotic soirees Luxury Marquee Hire has thought of it all to create an incredibly luxurious setup for your proposal. This package really has that ‘wow’ factor with a stylish setup that includes a majestic marquee paired with designer rugs, cushions, table and décor along with a bluetooth speaker for playing those romantic tunes. You will also get a giant grazing board fit for a king and queen with gourmet meats, cheeses, fruit, chocolate and more. If this isn’t quite the right fit for you, they tailor-make packages too. Plus they will work with you to pick the perfect picnic spot set up in either Brisbane or the Gold Coast.
If you prefer the Sunshine Coast for your romantic picnic proposal, Noosa Picnics specialises in romantic picnics, and they have everything you need to create a tailored picnic setup for your proposal. You get the choice of a range of picnic settings, picnic hampers and drinks along with extras including floral arrangements, musicians, photography and videography to make the day even more opulent and memorable.
What could be more romantic than getting away from the world for a few nights and escaping to a cosy mountain cottage? Along with being a beautiful way to propose, this proposal idea also allows you to spend quality time together in a picturesque location where you can slow down, relax and unwind.
We’ve found two quaint cottages that are perfectly prepared for your proposal plans.
Hunchy Hideaway has a specific romance and proposal getaway package you can book. which includes everything you could ever want for a perfect proposal. It includes a Maleny cheese platter, home-made scones, rose petal heart, breakfast provisions for two mornings, 1 hour massage for the couple, a three-course dinner at a local Montville restaurant, a gourmet barbeque platter as well as roses and chocolates. Plus, this cosy cottage is also within walking distance to a secret and secluded waterfall, making for the ideal spot to pop the question.
The Falls in Montville is another wonderful choice. You will need to get in touch with them to create a romantic custom proposal set up for you in one of their secluded cottages. You could include fresh rose arrangements and champagne in an ice bucket, or you could even book in other romantic extras too including a 1 hour relaxation massage, gourmet breakfast and even bubble bath to pair with your beautiful double spa.
