tips for planning

  1. When you begin to plan your proposal, make sure the weather will be nice on the day you plan to pop the question. Check the forecast as far in advance as possible, and plan your date accordingly. In case of sudden changes, plan for a backup location indoors.
  2. Don't forget to capture your special moment in pictures! The beaches in Florida are beautiful, so you’ll want your pictures to reflect that! Book your photographers as far in advance as possible, and discuss your proposal plans to get the cutest proposal pictures ever.
  3. Make sure she's dressed appropriately. If she's mentioned in passing that she wants to be dressed up or have her nails and hair done, then don't propose to her after a lazy beach day or when she's dressed for a casual day out. If you say you're taking her out to dinner but you're really taking her for a walk, try to discourage her from heels or have her bring a backup pair of flats.
  1. A lot of people like to propose around meaningful dates, such as holidays, anniversaries, or birthdays. This is perfect proposal timing, especially if you can include any cute couple traditions you two might have. As far as the time of day, sunsets are always romantic.
  2. Try not to spoil the surprise by telling anyone who might spill the beans. Of course you want to share with family and friends, but gossip can put a damper on your perfectly planned proposal if your lady finds out what you're up to!
  3. Consider bringing your family and closest friends for the proposal! If that’s not possible, just involve them over the phone or Skype. A surprise engagement party with loved ones is a great way to keep your actual proposal intimate while still involving the people you care about.
