5 Best Places to Propose In Whistler
Posted: Monday, January 06, 2014
Thinking of proposing in Whistler? It's a great idea with celebrities such as Seal and Heidi Klum using Whistler as a spectacular backdrop to this most important moment. Here are a few suggestions for ways to use the best of what Whistler gives us to make this moment perfect for both of you.
This idea originally came to us from a British online magazine. But we felt it was perfect for Whistler. We feel this could work in a Whistler hotel room because your backdrop outside is (usually) a beautiful starry night. Take glow-in-the-dark stars and write your proposal on the ceiling of the hotel room. After a perfect night out, your beloved will turn out the lights...and see your proposal. (Source)
Seal used this idea for his proposal in Whistler to Heidi Klum, and so did George Bush's daughter...the idea is simple. Take a hike with your beloved and propose on top of the world. In winter, of course, you can use chair lifts to get to the mountain top. If you are an early morning person, tying your proposal to sunrise could give that moment an extra burst of meaning and beauty. (Source)
Make Something Special
The idea here is to think about creating something that is uniquely you and incorporating that into the proposal. This idea is inspired by The Whistler Arts Council and the amazing courses offered throughout the year, as well as the incredible local artistic talent here. We suggest what could be more "Yes" inspiring than taking an art class together, and creating a proposal out of the art you make. Or, if you don't want to create yourself, having a piece of art made just for the occasion by a local artist.
Up In the Sky
Part of the magic of Whistler is the expansive skyline, so majestic and breathtaking. Hire a helicopter ride and ask your beloved the question while up in the air. Helicopter tours run year-round, and start at around $123 for a 12 minute ride.
Out In the Woods
Try this, if both of you enjoy the outdoors: A snowshoe walk in the woods to a secluded spot, where you can propose over a picnic lunch. Bringing all the supplies and making sure the weather is good enough are a big part of making this work, but what a great, romantic idea. This idea is inspired by a lovely real-life proposal chronicled at Wedding-bee.com.
