Brides often consider their engagement stories to be memories that they will cherish for the rest of their lives. After all, an engagement signals the beginning of a new chapter—one that leads to their happy ever after. These days, grooms are coming up with more creative ways to propose. Some men have documented how they popped the question while up in the air skydiving, or 30 feet underwater while scuba diving. The traditional dinner date proposal is still widely popular, but men are now encouraged to inject twists and surprises to make their story new and exciting.


A current trend in engagements is the destination proposal. There’s nothing more romantic than whisking off your loved one to somewhere special—whether it be a foreign city or a picturesque island. It’s like setting the perfect mood before you pop the question. Then, during a special private moment, you can drop down on one knee and ask her to spend the rest of her life with you.


Destination proposals are meaningful, poignant, and touching—but they do entail a lot of planning. It’s not easy to arrange details when you’re in a foreign place so you can capture the perfect moment. Here are four pointers to help you organize the ideal “will you marry me?” moment while on holiday:


1. Above all else, guard the ring

The ring is the most crucial part of any proposal. Even if you’ve decorated the most elaborate hotel room or the most romantic dinner by the beach, there may not be a proposal without a ring. You’ve spent a lot of time and money searching for the perfect token of your love, so protect it at all costs.


When in a new place, you might be caught up with your itinerary. When you consider the language barrier, confusion, and many other factors, it becomes clear why so many tourists lose their belongings while traveling. Therefore, it’s crucial to keep the engagement ring in a safe box. Keep it out of harm’s way and out of your girlfriend’s sight. It’s also a good idea to have an insurance policy to give you peace of mind in case of the worst-case scenario.


2. Think outside the box

Proposing in a remote, exotic place gives you the perfect opportunity to be creative. For your partner, every experience is thrilling, new, and exciting. You dropping on one knee will cap off the trip and make it an adventure she’ll never forget. Therefore, while planning for your holiday, begin thinking of unique proposal ideas. Take advantage of your scenery, the natural ambiance, and the local things that are distinct at your destination.


3. Be ready with Plan B

You may have prepared the most beautiful and intimate dinner on a raft out in the middle of the ocean. However, never assume that everything will go according to plan. The weather may turn on you or you may find that the raft isn’t available. Many things can ruin your preparations. Take everything in stride, and unpack your Plan B. At the end of the day, it will still be a good story to tell!


4. Ask help from your hotel

Premiere hotels and beach resorts are used to witnessing romantic proposals. They’re trained to help, too. When you make your reservations, tell them the purpose of your trip and ask for insider tips on how you can facilitate your plan. The hotel staff are mostly locals in the area, so they know where to source out unique props or items you’ll need for your perfect moment.


With the right amount of preparation, you can pull off the most memorable proposal for your special someone. It’ll be a trip she’ll treasure forever and the perfect way to start your journey as husband and wife.
