Deciding to propose to your sweetheart is a huge decision. If you’re ready to pull out that engagement ring and plan the perfect proposal, there’s a lot to think about when it comes to logistics in 2021 in the middle of a global pandemic. Whether you’ll ask your partner to marry you at the Eiffel tower, in the City of Love, with a crowd watching, or in that perfect place at the end of a hike, it’s a good idea to start working out the details of your special moment ahead of time. By planning ahead, you’ll have a better chance of making that magic moment something you’ll both treasure for the rest of your lives. For things to consider and top proposal destinations in 2021, read on.
Proposing on a Caribbean Beach
For some people, traveling to a destination for a proposal is the only way to go. By asking your partner to marry you in a beautiful place like Saint Lucia, it’ll be nearly impossible to forget that perfect proposal. If you’re intent on making your proposal one that’s impossible to forget, start with some research on the Caribbean islands. Serenity at Coconut Bay, for example, is an all-inclusive experience on a lush island in Saint Lucia. A top reason to pick this stunning destination in 2021 is that Serenity at Coconut Bay received its pandemic-safe certification from the Government of Saint Lucia. The resort has strict protocols in place to keep guests safe and help ensure that Saint Lucia retains its place on the CDC’s list of destinations with no health notices.
A Mountaintop Proposal
For those who’d love to travel to the Caribbean but are concerned about getting there safely during the pandemic, other destination proposals could be a little closer to home. A sunset proposal on a nearby mountain with a picnic or near a waterfall could be a great way to incorporate the element of surprise into your marriage proposal. You could even seal your perfect moment with honeymoon tickets to a luxury destination like Saint Lucia for when you feel safer about travel. That is, you could have the best of both worlds with a proposal your sweetheart will remember and a honeymoon later in the perfect spot.
Perfect Road Trip Proposals
Travel restrictions and recommendations have made destination proposals trickier than they have been in the past. This doesn’t mean you can’t still propose to your sweetheart in Central Park with a crowd of people cheering you on if you know that’s what your partner would want. For many couples, the pandemic has meant a new love for the idea of road tripping. Traveling in self-contained vehicles like converted vans and RVs, many couples have begun taking their proposals on the road.
If you’re considering a destination proposal but restrictions in 2021 are making it difficult, consider your options when it comes to traveling in a vehicle you own. There’s no reason you can’t come up with a list of places you and your soon-to-be fiancé have always wanted to go and hop in your own vehicle to explore the open road.
The reality is that marriage is a great adventure. Like your destination proposal in the middle of a pandemic, there will be twists and turns along the way. Whether you can make it to the paradise that is Saint Lucia safely or need to put it on hold until your honeymoon, you can still make some great memories along the way. Start by considering the best place to create that special memory for your partner and do what you can to stay open-minded about the road ahead. Whether you wind up at Amalfi coast, in New York, or in London, the best part of the memories you make now will be in knowing you took the time out to plan the perfect proposal ahead. Doing so will mean a memory that’s impossible to forget no matter where it happens. Congratulations on your upcoming proposal!
