To get the yellow-brick-road started, we’ve put together our top five Kansas City Proposal ideas. And you can also check out more here.

1. Bed & Breakfast

If you’re coming from a large city, one of the unique things Kansas City has to offer is an escape from the noise and constant motion. There’s a varied amount of B&B’s throughout the city, offering a cozy and romantic atmosphere, delicious meals, southern hospitality and more often than not, special romance packages. Take a break from the daily busy routine and live a little, by living less and relaxing.  And with us there to take care of the planning and capture all the moments, the only thing on your mind will be your new fiancée.

2. Star Gazing

No, this doesn’t just happen in movies, but it will make your proposal movie-like. Kansas City might not be your typical big city, but that’s what makes this proposal idea perfect. A starry night sky filled with millions of luminous stars is a real thing. (New Yorkers are now mind-blown.) Whether you deck out the back of your truck or set up a romantic picnic, the Kansas City sky glows beautifully at night. Add on a musician to serenade the moment (included in our packages) and you’ll be transported into a 90’s rom com.

3. The City of Fountains

Kansas City doesn’t just have beautiful fountains, it’s known as “The City of Fountains”. From the delightfully ornate Seville Light Fountain to the Sea Horse Fountain at City Hall, it’s famous for them, second to Rome. Bet you’ve never thought to hear Rome and Kansas City used in the same sentence. Well, you’ve been listening to the wrong people. This is a great way to immerse yourself in good old Kansas City culture and have an architecturally stunning backdrop for your surprise proposal.

4. Nature Proposal

It might lack the noise and pollution of a metropolitan city, but what Kansas City does have is Mother Nature. There’s plenty of beautiful parks and gardens for an intimate stroll or a picnic, and don’t forget the champagne! This can be done during the day or at night, but keep in mind, daytime will offer better light for photography. Some local popular options are Konza Prairie and Botanica Wichita, which offer endless greenery.

5. Relaxation with a Side of Thrill

So you want the whole relaxed and cozy getaway Kansas City offers, but to include a little bit of thrill within your proposal? How about a helicopter ride over the city? It would sure beat Dorothy’s methods of traveling. Timberview Helicopters offer great rates on a downtown tour of the city. This will flare up the getaway and your homey Bed & Breakfast will be there after to nestle up in (with your new fiancée). Just be sure your partner isn’t afraid of heights, as that might distract from the proposal.

Don’t get us wrong, the barbecue and jazz are great, but Kansas City has much more to offer for your upcoming proposal. And just remember, it’s all in the details, and that’s what we’re here to take care of. Instead of finding a proposal planner and a photographer, why not pick both with Paparazzi Proposals? After all, we are the best at what we do. Just ask these guys!
