Rent out a boat on Lake Michigan
Plan a nice evening out on the lake. You can rent a boat for a reasonable price at Knock Out Charters, have your very own DD and photographer, drink Champagne, eat chocolate-covered strawberries, and ask the love of your life if she will be yours forever.
Wine and dine at a super-fancy restaurant
Show your soon-to-be fiancé that you’ve got great taste. In both looks and food. Treat your lady to one of Chicago’s finest restaurants (Alinea, Next Restaurant, Everest, North Pond, Sixteen, Grace). After the meal, pop the Big Q. And then Champagne bottles.
