Destination proposals are a surefire way to make your proposal special and memorable. Additionally, if you and your partner are already vacationing someplace special, it means that there will be loads of photo opportunities. Those physical memories will become even more cherish-able if you propose on your trip! If you want to learn how to plan a destination proposal to make your special day even more special, keep reading.

Choose the perfect time

The first step in planning the perfect proposal of any kind is to make sure you are absolutely ready to get engaged to this person. While divorce is rather common, most would agree that it is unpleasant to go through and should be avoided if possible. For that reason, it is important that you adequately reflect and make sure that now is the right time for you to get engaged, and that your partner is the right person for you to get engaged to. Additionally, you should choose a time to get engaged that is convenient and stress-free for both you and your partner. Nobody wants to get engaged while they are stressed about personal or family issues, a heavy workload, or are experiencing illness.

Opt for a scenic location

The scenery surrounding your proposal should be top of mind when you are planning your destination proposal. Make sure you opt for a picture-worthy locale since you are going to want to take lots of photos of you and your new fiancé or fiancée. You should always book your beautiful location in advance. Research the best island vacation lodging or most picturesque cabin stays in the area you choose. Then, it is important that you communicate with whichever venue you will be physically proposing in. The venue may have special deals or celebration packages for newly engaged couples, so you should always ask before you propose.

Get the perfect engagement ring

No engagement is complete without the perfect engagement ring. Many couples opt to shop together for an engagement ring beforehand so that the person proposing knows just what they like. You always want to make sure that the ring you get for your future spouse is special and unique, just like them. For that reason, you may want to consider investing in a custom engagement ring. Look into custom engagement rings in Brisbane to see what is out there and what is customizable before you make the jump and purchase a ring. In some cases, you can mix and match cuts of stones with different bands, and even add engraving. Working with a jeweler you trust will give you the best results for your engagement ring.

Invest in the little details

Little details like rose petals on the bed of your lodging, candles, or other activities planned before and after the proposal can make your engagement day even more special. Make sure you invest in these little things and consider purchasing an additional memento for the both of you to keep and remember the beautiful day you had together.

Get engaged!

This should go without saying, but the final step to cinch the deal in your destination proposal is to nail the ask. While it may seem overly traditional, many future spouses will appreciate the gesture of getting down on one knee when you ask them to marry you. Stay confident, try not to speed through your speech, and take a deep breath. Then, enjoy the rest of your life with the person you love.

Destinations proposals are fun, intimate, and unique. Be sure to keep the tips above in mind and you’re sure to have a memorable proposal.
