POPPING THE QUESTION: DESTINATION ENGAGEMENTS
We’ve mentioned it time and time again: Sun destinations are without a doubt, perfect for weddings! However, they are not limited to just this kind of romance travel. Popping the question on destination not only sets the perfect tone for a romantic getaway, but it also makes for an unforgettable moment. Here are a few tips to make it smooth and stress-free.
Prepare and Plan: Popping the question requires the same amount of time and care as finding the perfect ring. It’s wise to do most of the planning before arriving to the destination. Many all-inclusive resorts have “Romance Concierge” services perfect for this type of occasion. Not only do they help alleviate any additional stress, but they effortlessly add special touches to your getaway, making the moment incredibly romantic.
Pack Smart: There’s nothing worse than spoiling the big surprise due to getting screened at the airport. On the contrary, it would be a terrible shame to lose the ring in your luggage! To reduce any risk of losing the surprise OR the ring itself, it’s best to secure it safely in its box with your carry-on. Aside from following every other TSA requirement, many clever travelers also keep a small note around the box so that agents can be more discreet, should they go through your carry-on.
Including Friends and Family: Sure, it may be a little difficult to include and coordinate travel for all friends and family. However, it's always great to incorporate them into the moment in some capacity! When picking a location to pop the question, pick a place where you can easily contact your loved ones to announce the news.
Have a Photographer: Popping the question on destination also has the added bonus of acting as a beautiful backdrop, so why not capture it?! Not only will having a photographer on hand ensure that this sentimental moment is immortalized, but it also serves as a good opportunity to do engagement and save-the-date photos as well.
Enjoy the Moment: Getting down on one knee is a little nerve-wracking (to say the least). There’s always pressure to make every detail and moment perfect! With all of these factors aside, there’s no better feeling than knowing that this moment is just the start of your forever together. So sit back and live in the moment!
