Wild Proposals at the Maryland Zoo

Popping the question is exciting, but can also feel overwhelming. Let us help you create an experience that no one could say “no” to.

Curated Proposal Experience: $550

Experience includes:

  • Proposal coordinator and initial consultation
    • Can take place over the phone or in person. We recommend each client visit our campus prior to the date of their proposal.
  • Zoo general admission for up to six guests
  • 30- minute animal ambassador visit, featuring a keeper chat. See our catalog of incredible animal ambassadors.
  • Complementary champagne to celebrate!
  • Personalized engagement gift to commemorate your special day

ADD-ONS (to be coordinated by Zoo staff)

  • Charcuterie board – $100
  • Bouquet of flowers – $50

Things to consider:

  • All proposals must be booked at least thirty (30) days prior to your desired proposal date.
  • Animal care is paramount in all that we do, therefore we never guarantee a specific animal’s availability. We ask that clients give us their top three choices of ambassadors, identifying their preference.
  • If choosing an African penguin ambassador for your special day, please note that availability is Tuesday – Friday at 11:30am.
