How To Propose On Holiday

Struggling with ideas on how to propose to your loved one? Here are some tips if you’re planning to do it on a cottage holiday!

Are you planning to pop the question on your next cottage holiday and currently deciding the best way to do it? It can be tricky to figure out how to plan one of the most important moments of your life, so here are some of the most creative proposal ideas that you could consider

1. Treasure Hunt

lay clues around the cottage, or if you want to go a step further, create a trail to follow while you’re out and about. At the end of the hunt will be the ring followed by your marriage proposal as you’re down on one knee.

2. Candles and Petals

Prepare your cottage’s bedroom to make it look romantic with candles and petals scattered across the floor. Blindfold your significant other before you reveal your hard work and kneel down, proposing on one knee.

3. A Romantic Restaurant

If you decide to go to a nearby restaurant to propose, get the waiting staff in on the surprise before you arrive and arrange for them to bring out the ring in a glass of champagne. If you want to go a step further book the entire restaurant and hire a string quartet to serenade you both.

4. Romantic Walk

if you’re an outdoorsy couple then what could be better than an al fresco proposal during a romantic walk? There are lots of local beauty spots nearby where you could wine and dine before popping the question to your loved one.

5. Hot Air Balloon

Take your partner on a day they’ll never forget with a hot air balloon proposal 2,000 feet up in the sky. As you see the gorgeous view glide past down below, make the most of the moment and get down on one knee. Plus they cannot run away after you ask the question!
