Are you thinking of popping the question to that special someone soon? Congratulations for being able to find the one! The next step, of course, is to plan that perfect proposal to ensure a sweet “yes”.
Remember, this may be the only shot you get to pop the question. Advance planning is definitely a must for that perfect proposal – or as close to it as you can get, anyway. You’ve probably thought of a few places to ask, but have you considered a destination proposal?
Think about it – you and your love, away from all the stress of “real life” and enjoying each other’s company. Stunning backdrops that will make for photos to cherish. A place you’ll both remember fondly for the years to come. It’s no wonder that destination proposals are on the rise.
Another reason why you should plan a destination proposal? The sky’s literally the limit. Your experience is easily customizable based on your interests and preferences. Think of your soon-to-be fiancée – what does she like to do? Does she love the great outdoors? Is there a place she’s always wanted to visit?
If you’re a little stuck on ideas for your perfect destination proposal, here are some suggestions that you may just want to consider!
When most people think of a destination wedding, it usually involves hot weather and a sandy beach. You don’t have to wait for the “I Do”s to enjoy the beach. Why not plan your proposal there, too? Worried that the beach may be too crowded? There will always be a perfect spot with little to no people.
Plan it so that it’s just you, the love of your life, the salty ocean breeze, and the sound of waves crashing on the shore. Perhaps you’d like to wait for sunset. Your proposal will be the perfect accompaniment to the perfect backdrop.
Are you both kids at heart, and love to reminisce about the good old days of childhood? A destination proposal at an amusement park may just do the trick. You’ll have a sense of excitement in the air, plus a sense of wonder that comes from wide-eyed children seeing their fantasies coming to life.
The magic doesn’t have to end when the park closes. What better way to further cement the amusement park’s tagline of “the happiest place on earth” than by popping the question right then and there?
Some people are drawn to the water and its beauty. If your special someone is one of those people, then you may want to have your destination proposal underwater. Remember that even with a destination proposal, you don’t have to plan everything alone. Employees of airlines, hotels, and even attractions will be happy to help you out.
Maybe you both like scuba diving. Here’s a video from Icelandair that may get you inspired – talk about a unique proposal location.
Do you both love the great outdoors? Why not plan a proposal while out and exploring? Take a leisurely stroll together in your chosen destination, and propose with trees and greenery as your witness. You could even time it for autumn, to get those lovely fall colors in your photos.
If you’re both adventurous, why not propose after a hike? Maybe after you’ve summited a mountain would be a lovely surprise. It would take away all the tiredness, too. Make your special someone feel, both literally and figuratively, on top of the world with your destination proposal!
Has your soon-to-be fiancée to be ever dreamt of visiting The City of Lights? How about the charm of hilly San Francisco? Maybe she’s always wanted to take pictures of Tokyo’s skyline. A destination proposal is a great way to hit two birds with one stone. Not only will she get to explore her dream vacation spot, you’ll make another dream come true by popping the question!
You may be a little worried about the coordination required to pull off a successful destination proposal. It does require more effort, and a healthy dose of determination to pull off. You’ll need to do advance research, and make sure to hide evidence from your fiancée-to-be.
Not going to lie, a destination proposal isn’t going to be a walk in the park – figuratively, at least – but don’t worry, the love of your life is more than worth the extra effort. Just imagine the joy on her face when she realizes what’s happening.
