Proposal ideas in Miami can be a lot of fun. Of course, you will be nervous, and you should be, rightly so. You are pledging your forever love and commitment to the person of your dreams. And surely you are hoping that your love will feel the same about you and want to spend the rest of their life loving you. Big deal, right? Hell yeah, that’s a big deal, and it shouldn’t be taken lightly, either.

When I proposed to my wife, I traveled from California to Jamaica with the ring in my pocket, constantly worrying about her finding out about it. Why didn’t I put the ring in my luggage? I didn’t want it to get lost or stolen. I figured keeping it on me was the best way to ensure that it would make it to Jamaica with me. Do you know those stories of people losing their luggage at airports? I didn’t want that to happen to me. I’m sorry, I digress!

Long story short. I proposed to my wife on Christmas morning while she was still in bed. to say that I was nervous is an understatement! I don’t remember getting any sleep the night before my proposal. Nevertheless, I held it together, and I pulled it off. It was private and romantic. Just me and her! It was exceptional.

Miami is called the Magic City because it is truly magical. There are loads of romantic places for you to propose to your honey. This post will share some ideas for a romantic proposal here in the Magic City!

Proposal Ideas in Miami Restaurants

Many people know Miami for its wild and ruckus nightlife. But Miami is also foodie heaven. If you and your honey are foodies, then you may want to consider a proposal over a fabulous meal with a bottle of sparkles to top it off. There are tons of excellent restaurants here in Miami, and here are a few of my favorites:

Area 31

For a romantic proposal idea in Miami with a serious wow factor and an unforgettable experience, I recommend Area 31. Area 31 is on the sixteenth floor of Miami’s Kimpton EPIC Hotel. And boy, let me tell you… If you want to impress your love, a meal at this restaurant will surely do it, from the breathtaking panoramic view of the Biscayne Bay and Miami River to world-class sustainable cuisine. A private proposal dinner at Area 31 will be a captivating experience that sets the stage for what’s to come after the engagement.

Drunken Dragon

Ok! This restaurant is off the chain. It is a Korean barbecue restaurant with a do-it-yourself style of tableside grilling combined with contemporary Asian tapas. Drunken Dragon is located on the west side of South Beach in a little strip mall without any identifying name or logo.

When my wife and I first went there and pulled into the strip mall, we thought the restaurant had gone out of business. There was no indication that the restaurant existed at this location (they now have a big sign outside on the building). I had to get out of my car, walk up to the building, and physically look for the restaurant. Luckily, I found an unmarked entrance that led to the restaurant. 

Once my wife and I entered the Drunken Dragon, OMG! I promise you. You will not find anything like this restaurant anywhere here in Miami. 

The Drunken Dragon restaurant is perfect for a more laid-back and romantic proposal. Their do-it-yourself tables and eclectic Asian menu makes for a more personal experience. A proposal at the Drunken Dragon will be unique and unforgettable.

UPDATE (02/23) – Due to recent storms, this restaurant is temporarily closed for major repairs. They will be reopening in Spring 2023!

I took my wife here on a special occasion, and we were blown away by the service and the cuisine. We thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it and were sent on our way with our bellies full to the brim. For the life of me, I can’t remember whether they were Asian or South American-inspired. I blame it on a couple of cocktails and a bottle of wine :)! Nevertheless, what I remember most about this restaurant is that they have a unique way of serving their guest. We selected the chef’s special, and boy, were we in for a treat. 

When we selected the chef’s special, we had no idea what was included in the chef’s special. They just kept bringing us exciting and succulent dishes. It was like a ten-course meal. Needless to say, my wife and I left the restaurant feeling like stuffed pigs, plus our doggie bags. Good thing we didn’t have to walk too far to get home.

I highly recommend this restaurant for a romantic proposal because it is unique. It is located in the heart of Miami’s Art District, Wynwood, and the service and food are beyond amazing. 

Come to think of it now, yea, they are Asian-inspired – Ha-ha! They have an extensive bar with lots of Asian whiskies and sake. You name it, and they got it.

Pop The Big Question Above Miami Skyline With a Bottle of Champagne!

Are you and your sweetheart the adventurous type? Why not take to the skies for a romantic proposal? A proposal idea flying high in the sky is not for the faint of heart. Before you decide on an aerial proposal, make sure that this is something that your honey is going to enjoy. Because once you take flight, your only other option is not to propose. And you don’t want to do that.

Now, when it comes to romantic Arial flights over Miami, there are so many options to choose from. You may want to go with a big company that provides Arial tours all over the US, or you may prefer to go with a local company. 

You can book anywhere from a 30-minute private tour up to an hour. Whichever way you decide to go, just make sure you do your due diligence. Miami is so dang gorgeous. I am confident your Arial proposal will be one to remember forever.

Romantic Proposal on Miami Waters

What a more romantic way to ask your love for their hands in marriage than on Miami waters? Let me tell you, I fell in love with this magical place about six years ago. And since I moved here from California, the city seems to be getting lovelier every day. 

I recently did my first paddleboarding in Biscayne Bay and the inland waterways of South Beach. It was just a lovely experience. The views from the water were priceless. It will take your breath away! 

The good news is that you don’t have to propose on a paddleboard to enjoy and experience the epic scenery. Oh no! And I definitely wouldn’t recommend it anyway! Unless you are both pro paddleboarders. With that said, your option for a romantic proposal on the water in Miami is endless.

You could rent a small private boat or charter a yacht. Still, you could consider renting a couple of jet skis. Regardless of how you decide to go about it, I promise you will create an everlasting experience. One that your honey will not forget anytime soon. Trust me! 

There can be nothing more romantic and beautiful than the Miami skyline in the background as you get down on one knee and pop the question.

For a romantic proposal aboard a luxury yacht, talk to the lovely folks over at Biscayne Lady Yacht Charters

Prefer something smaller than a yacht? No problem, Miami have you covered here too. You can rent a boat for an entire day. This gives you ample time to find the perfect backdrop and pop the question. Not feeling the skipper vibe? That’s ok too! You can charter a boat for a private tour. Then you and your honey can just sit back and take it all in. Just don’t forget the reason you are on the boat!
