Picture it just you and the one you love in a faraway place, on what will soon be the most memorable trip of your lives. Nothing could be more romantic than a destination holiday proposal. We hear about destination weddings all the time, right? So why not a destination proposal! Now, the best part of planning a destination proposal is the endless list of possible locations. Does your partner have a love of Parisian culture? Propose under the Eiffel Tower! Are you an adventurous couple? Hike to the top of a mountain to get down on one knee! The possibilities are endless, and though destination proposals take quite a bit of planning, we promise the look of surprise on her face will be worth it when she says, “Yes!!” But just in case, here are some tips to make sure your destination proposal goes off without a hitch:
1. First and foremost, care for the ring while travelling. If you are flying take it on carry-on, just in case your luggage gets lost. Take out travel insurance, better to be safe than sorry. If you have any questions about insurance and how to hide the ring our expert will be happy to answer all your questions.
2. Make it unique. With all the time you spent deliberating over the perfect diamond and choosing the design of the engagement ring, make sure the proposal is just as meaningful and special for the both of you. Think outside of the tourist box when it comes to locations- just imagine hiking to a mountaintop for a truly once in a lifetime marriage proposal.
3. Consider including your families and friends on the trip! If that isn’t possible, or if you would prefer privacy, make sure to propose in a location with Wi-Fi so that loved ones can still feel included. In today’s remarkably interconnected world, there is always a way to connect with others across the globe!
