How To Pop The Question On Vacation 

It makes sense that many people prefer to pop the question to their significant other while on vacation. It’s intimate, you get to spend time together, and you get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. You’ll need to plan ahead if you want your proposal to go off without a hitch and be remembered for all the right reasons, however.

Getting married is too big of a commitment to make on a whim, and the more preparation you can put into your proposal, the better. To ensure that your holiday proposal is accepted, read on for some helpful hints.

Pack The Ring Well 

You’ll want to make sure your gorgeous Brilliant Earth engagement ring doesn’t get damaged during transit after spending so much time looking for the perfect one. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to ensure it stays safe. 

To begin with, the ring should be placed in your carry-on bag (in other words, not your hold luggage) for safekeeping. So long as you keep an eye on it, it won’t go missing. However, you should pack it carefully so that the surprise isn’t ruined if your bag needs to be examined and the potential bride or groom notices it. Putting the ring box inside still another box or perhaps a pair of socks or similar is one way of doing this. Plus, make sure that your bag contains no liquids or other items that would prompt airport security to open it anyway, and you can carry on without having to open everything up. 

Have A Backup Plan

You’ve already planned your trip, and you know the exact date and time you’ll be proposing. You’ve planned everything out ahead of time. So, if you weren’t able to implement your strategy, what would happen? What would you do if the weather prevented you from going outside or if you planned on visiting a specific tourist spot, but it was closed?

Unless you have a back-up plan, the answer is that you probably wouldn’t be able to do much of anything. If you feel your confidence dwindling because you’re not sure what to do next, it’s tempting to persuade yourself that you’ll give it another go another day and put off the whole idea of proposing altogether, which would be a shame. If you’re serious about proposing, you should have a backup plan ready in case your first one doesn’t work out. Upon further reflection, you might even decide that you like the second option better.

Plan What You’ll Say

It’s a good idea to plan in advance what you’re going to say when you propose. You might want to keep it sweet and simple, or perhaps you’ll have a whole speech prepared. No matter what, have it ready in advance so you don’t stumble over your words and start to get embarrassed. 

Another good tip is not to write it down. If you do that, you run the risk of the words being found in the hotel room or a pocket, and then your surprise will be ruined, and you’ll just have to wing it, which won’t make for such great memories.
