Destination Proposal Ideas

We’ve all heard of destination weddings, but what about destination proposals? Picture it: Just you and the one you love in a far-away place, on what will soon be the most memorable trip of your lives. Nothing could be more romantic than a fairytale proposal vacation!

Now, the best part of planning a destination proposal is the endless list of possible locations. Does your S.O. 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:

Proposal Tips

  1. First and foremost, care for the ring while travelling. If you’re flying, take it on carry-on, just in case your luggage is lost.
  2. Make it unique! Destination proposals are always amazing, but think outside the tourist box when it comes to location. Icebergs, hidden caves, and mountaintops make for a truly once-in-a-lifetime marriage proposal.
  3. Most destination proposals are not exactly close to home, so you should time the proposal close to the beginning of your trip. This way, the rest of the trip serves as an unforgettable proposal celebration!
  1. Depending on location, language barriers may make it hard to arrange for a professional photographer after you arrive. Look up services and book online, and set a schedule with the photographer before the trip begins.
  2. If the destination is to be a surprise, make sure she brings the proper clothing. Even if you don’t want to tell her the location, give her an estimate of the weather and activities to dress for. (Hint: A special date night!)
  3. Consider including your families and/or friends on the trip! If that isn’t possible, or if you would prefer privacy, make sure to propose in a location with cellphone service or Wi-Fi so that loved ones can still feel included.
