How To Propose

Proposing in Georgia is a kind of art. It affects not only the story you will tell the people for the rest of your life but also to the relationship with your future mother-in-law, father-in-law etc. Different considerations need to be made depending on whether or not your partner is from Georgia. If you are simply looking for a unique, memorable place to pop the question, feel free to scroll down. But if you are with a Georgian woman, you should understand how traditional her family is and that generally doing things as Georgians would is the best way you can make a positive impression on friends and relatives, helping to ensure a happy union between your families.

If a girl knows your intentions, there are two ways you can go about it. You can first make the proposal between yourselves then visit the future spouse’s family and make it official with her family. Or simply have everyone over for a Supra and ask your beloved with all her friends and family with you. In any case, a family gathering is a must. Engagement Supras usually include parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Sometimes several best friends are invited over.
However, if she doesn’t know your intentions, it can be scary to risk proposing when you are not sure whether your future spouse will want to be proposed at a specific time, or at all. In this case, you’d probably prefer to propose in a quiet and romantic place where there are no extra eyes watching.

Where to propose

Tbilisi Old Town

Georgia is a fantastically beautiful country and with a gorgeous nature. You can find many breathtaking mountaintops, river valleys, beaches, and coasts. A perfect place to propose in Tbilisi would be Mtatsminda. There is a beautiful view on the city you can see from the Ferris Wheel or you can choose the open lounge at The Funicular Restaurant from where the moon is always close, enhancing the romance and wine of the popular high-end eatery. If you want to propose after wandering around the city, you could go to the old city and enjoy the romance of the narrow streets. Another option is the quiet sunset at the Lisi Lake. The snowy lake in winter will give you the extra courage to execute your crazy, beautiful idea of proposal.

Some of the best locations outside Tbilisi include:

  • You can add fireworks to your proposal to make a girl “wow”;
  • Prepare for heavy drinking if you propose at your future spouse’s house. Fathers are always way more excited than anyone else about the event.
  • Get a photographer. Prices can be as low as 50 USD for a professional photographer. But you could also ask a friend to capture some memorable moments for you.

And if you do not speak Georgian, you will capture your father-in-law-to-be’s heart if you tell him “Me Tkveni Shvili Mikvars” (I love your daughter). You will definitely get the positive answer.
