Why you should propose in a hot air balloon (and how)


You’ve found that special someone you want to spend the rest of your life with. How will you propose? Being in love can feel like you’re floating, but getting engaged can be nerve racking!

WHY you should propose in a hot air balloon:

It’s an EPIC Engagement Story!

Everyone has heard about hot air ballooning, but how many people do you know who have actually experienced it, let alone been engaged in one! When you propose in a hot air balloon, you have an amazing story to tell, and each flight is unique! Where you take off, where you land, and what you see along the way is different for every flight…so your story will be only yours! Plus, the Rohr Balloons pilots and crew are fun, engaging, and caring people who will help make your engagement extraordinary.

It’s Romantic!

The view at 2,000 feet above the Earth, the exhilaration of floating peacefully in the sky, and the beautiful majesty of the entire hot air ballooning experience creates a romantic atmosphere that is perfect for popping the question. Even more, because of the times of the day hot air balloons fly, you get to experience a sunrise or sunset with the one you love. With just the two of you and the pilot (unless you want to share your experience with other passengers), you feel “on top of the world” and it is a very special moment for the two of you.

HOW you should propose in a hot air balloon:

Your Rohr Balloons pilot will work with you to create a surprising and memorable journey. Here are a few ideas you can do to add that extra oomph to your hot air balloon proposal!

“Will You Marry Me” Banner

Rohr Balloons provides a red and white banner with “Will You Marry Me” written on it for all engagement flights. The crew will lay at the banner at a pre-determined time and place to surprise your loved one.

“She Said Yes” Banner

Go the extra mile and have your future-fiance’s family or friends create a banner to take with you, and hang over the balloon letting others know that she accepted your proposal!

Involve Family and Friends

Have family or friends hold the “Will You Mary Me” Banner as you fly by!
