How To Propose On Vacation #1- Pick A Romantic Destination
If you and your sweetie are planning to drive to Indianapolis to see the Indy 500, no matter how big of a race fan she is do not propose to her there. When she recounts the story to her friends one or two of them are sure to say, he proposed where?
Instead pick a destination that is all about love and romance. This article, “Most Romantic Valentine’s Getaway Destinations” has a variety of romantic destination ideas that are great any time of year. Another great way to pick a destination is to ask your girlfriend if there is anywhere she has always dreamed of going.
How To Propose On Vacation #2- Research Your Destination
When visiting a place for the first time it can be hard to determine which location in a city can be the most romantic place to propose. Google your destination and see if there are any articles about romantic restaurants, parks etc that would make good proposal locations.
Another great way to plan a perfect proposal on vacation is to call the city’s chamber of commerce or visitor’s bureau. Usually women work at these offices and will have plenty of ideas and suggestions for proposing on vacation in their city. These are the people who know things such as, how on Thursday nights the park has horse drawn carriage rides.
How To Propose On Vacation #3- Hide The Engagement Ring Well
Hiding the ring can be one of the most difficult parts of planning to propose on vacation. Putting an expensive engagement ring in your checked baggage can be costly, but your sweetie may see the ring in your carry on luggage. So be sure to hide the ring in a place your girlfriend won’t be tempted to look. When going through the airport scanner try to distract her from looking at the things going through the x-ray.
How To Propose On Vacation #4- Pick The Right Time To Propose
Many men feel nervous when waiting to propose on vacation so they end up proposing as soon as they get to their vacation destination. Don’t do this, instead wait a day or two and make sure your girlfriend is relaxed and enjoying herself. You also want to make sure you don’t propose to late in your vacation either, because your fiancé will want to show off her ring and engaged status to the world.
