The Ritz-Carlton, Washington, D.C. Invites Guests to say “Yes” to Forever with $65,000 Engagement Package.

The master bedroom in The Ritz-Carlton Suite offers a romantic oasis after a day of exploration in the nation's capital.

The Summer of Love package [focuses] on all of the details for the couple - no matter how small or large - to create a once-in-a-lifetime, extraordinary experience that will create priceless memories for years to come.

The days when booking a fine dining restaurant and tossing an engagement ring into a glass of Champagne are gone. With viral videos and Pinterest taking over the wedding scene, over-the-top fairy tale proposals have become the norm. This has made planning a proposal a seriously daunting task. Thankfully, The Ritz-Carlton, Washington, D.C. has created an engagement package to take the guesswork out of creating that over-the-top experience with the launch of its ultra-luxe Summer of Love package.

Priced at $65,000, the two night package is valid May 29 to September 4, 2015 and includes all of the ingredients for a “monumental” engagement. Highlights from the package include accommodations in the hotel’s recently-renovated Ritz-Carlton Suite, a 24-hour dedicated butler, a private seven-course dinner on the suite’s romantically-decorated outdoor terrace and a surprise engagement party the following day for up to 50 guests.

“Marriage proposals can be one of the most joyous, yet simultaneously nerve-wracking experiences in a person’s life,” said George Munz, general manager at The Ritz-Carlton, Washington, D.C. “Our Summer of Love package relieves some of that pressure by focusing on all of the details for the couple – no matter how small or large – to create a once-in-a-lifetime, extraordinary experience that will create priceless memories for years to come. If you ask me, that’s a picture perfect start to happily ever after.”
