Planning a Surprise Proposal – we can help!


a man sitting on a boatSailing is a romantic and beautiful setting for a proposal, and it can be a lot of fun to plan a surprise proposal for your partner. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Choose the right location. You’ll want to choose a location that is both beautiful and private. A secluded cove or a quiet anchorage are perfect options.
  • Get help from friends or family. If you have friends or family who are also sailors, they can be a great help in planning and executing your proposal. They can help you set up the scene, take photos, and keep your partner’s surprise.
  • Decorate the boat. You can add flowers, candles, or other decorations to make the boat look festive and romantic.
  • Plan a special meal. You can cook a meal on board or bring food from shore. If you’re cooking on board, make sure to have everything you need, including a grill, cooking utensils, and food.
  • Write a speech. If you’re planning to give a speech, make sure to practice it ahead of time so that you can deliver it smoothly.
  • Get down on one knee. This is the moment you’ve been waiting for! Get down on one knee and ask your partner to marry you.
  • Be prepared for anything. Things don’t always go according to plan, so be prepared for anything. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, you can always reschedule your proposal. And if your partner says no, don’t take it personally. Just remember that you put a lot of thought and effort into planning a special moment, and that’s something to be proud of.

I hope these ideas help you plan a surprise proposal that your partner will never forget.
