Places to Propose in Austin, TX

As we mentioned above, we are a part of so many proposals, it seems like every week! Below are the most popular places to propose in Austin, TX. We’ll also include other ideas for proposal places around the greater Austin area, as well.

Zilker Park

The number one spot where we get asked to provide our marquee letters is in Zilker Park. Zilker Park is Austin’s favorite park! So many things happen at Zilker Park, like ACL, The Trail of Lights, the Kite Festival, and many other things. Austinites have a lot of great memories tied to Zilker Park, so it’s easy to see why this is a favorite proposal spot.

Keep in mind, there isn’t always available power, so if you want to rent lighted “marry me” letters, you may need to also get a generator. Don’t worry, we can include one with our rental if needed.

Mount Bonnell

Another favorite local spot is Mount Bonnell. Mount Bonnell is literally the highest point in Austin, at 781 feet! It has a beautiful view that every Austinite loves! There are 102 stairs to climb to get to the top, so keep that in mind if you’re proposing and want to set up anything at the top. You’ll definitely have to prepare in advance to get everything set up for the proposal.

Regardless of the small climb, the view and engagement photos are sure to be amazing!

360 Bridge

The 360 bridge is another iconic Austin spot. ABDJs’ owners, Jason & Diana, actually took their own engagement photos there! The view of the Colorado River is quite amazing. Be aware that this is a heavily visited spot at sunrise and sunset, so you’ll need to plan in advance.

The Oasis

The Oasis is an iconic Austin restaurant/bar. The view of Lake Travis is simply stunning. They pride themselves as being the best place in Austin to watch the sunset. We’ve been to the Oasis many times for events and as customers, and the sunsets are pretty amazing. Your proposal photos will look amazing!

The Boardwalk on Ladybird Lake

Last, but certainly not least, we have the Austin Boardwalk. The boardwalk is fairly new, in comparison to the other places. It was completed in 2014. It’s basically a path along the edge of Ladybird Lake. This place is sure to be a great proposal spot in Austin, TX.

We’re working on creating the perfect proposal package that makes it as easy as possible for you to propose. You’ll just book us and we’ll take care of the details! We hope this blog has been helpful. As always, feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions, or need more info about our proposal packages!
