Finding love for a lifetime is one of the most joyous things that can happen to someone. If you’ve been with your significant other for a while now, you’re probably thinking of taking it to the next level—marriage. But before that, you need to propose.
Planning a romantic proposal for your significant other is exciting! But you’re also on your own and have no input from your partner.
As far as grand gestures go, though, nothing is as romantic as proposing to your partner on a yacht. Picture the sunset, the calm blue waters, and you popping the question and presenting them with a ring!
Here’s a guide to planning the most perfect proposal on a yacht:
Booking a yacht
When planning to propose, most couples prefer being alone. It’s an intimate moment, and being in a private setting allows them to truly express themselves without any onlookers interrupting.
Book a romantic yacht charter for two ahead of time. Don’t pick a date during a period of high demand for yacht rentals. This way, you can ensure the most intimate proposal experience. Depending on your budget, you can opt for a luxury charter or a no-frills experience.
Make it a romantic day for your partner. Lounge on the Sunbeds, sip some champagne, decorate the yacht with her favorite flowers. Inform the yacht rental company ahead of time about the additions you want and the kind of cuisine you want to enjoy.
The day of the yacht booking, have all the flowers delivered to the yacht. You could get some friends to decorate the yacht or ask the rental company to. Get her favorite flowers placed in the dining, lounging, and cabin areas.
Book a special lunch/dinner for two set up under the blue sky or under the stars for the two of you.
An important part of your proposal is the ring. Make sure you spend a good amount of time looking for rings. You probably know what kind of jewelry she likes; this includes the setting, stone, shape, etc.
Engagement rings can be expensive, so it’s a good idea to save up months in advance. Some jewelers custom-make their pieces too, so you need to give them time when getting a ring made.
Proposals need to be a surprise. To make your plan work smoothly, you need to make sure your partner is unsuspecting of your plan. When revealing your plans for the yacht holiday, make it sound like a casual and fun thing that you’re doing.
You could also book some water adventure activities and say they’re the reason behind this yacht experience. Wave runners and snorkeling can be arranged by yacht rental companies.
