January, 2019

Congrats! Planning to propose is an amazing and exciting life-changing time, but it can bring with it a lot of pressure, and leave you downright overwhelmed.

From getting on bended knee on a tropical beach to orchestrating an elaborate event of it, marriage proposal ideas come in all shapes and sizes, which can make the task of making yours special and unique seem daunting.

With engagement season already chugging along, we’ve rounded up a few proposal trends that are expected to be all the rage this year and are sure to get your creative juices flowing to plan the perfect proposal – your way.

Pop the Big Question in an Exotic Destination

A low-key proposal at home is perfectly fine, but, you’re looking to add a little oomph to your big day, why not take it up a notch and whisk your soon-to-be-fiancé off to an exotic Caribbean destination, like Ocho Rios, Cancun, or even Los Cabos. 

Why not make it even more tropical on an island destination? Imagine your romantic request surrounded by turquoise waters, while perched on the pretty pier of Cozumel Palace.

Involve the family in the marriage proposal 

Asking the parent’s permission for their child’s hand in marriage is still a surefire way to kick off a proposal the right way, and now one proposal trend takes including family a step further.

Whether it’s at a family get together or holiday dinner or having family members actually take part in the proposal, involving all of your favorite people in your special moment is one of the most popular ways to pop the big question. Not to mention, its sure to score big points with your future in-laws!

A marriage proposal with Flash Mob?

With the rise of YouTube and social media, The Flash Mob Proposal has been popping up (literally) all over the last few years. Full of energy and emotion, a flash mob might be the perfect choice if you’re trying to plan a creative and unforgettable proposal.

One word of advice though, if either you or your partner hates attention, then this is probably not the right proposal. After all, the last thing you want is for your future spouse to feel uncomfortable during their special moment.

Marriage proposal, much more than a moment!

The moment you get down on one knee and open that ring box is sure to be one that your future spouse won’t forget. So, imagine if the proposal was an entire day filled with romance and anticipation.

"Guys are starting to realize that the process of proposing shouldn't be just about getting down on one knee, but they should make an entire day of it," wedding expert James Ambler says to The Knot.

During your couples stay at the all-inclusive Palace Resorts, it’s easy to schedule a day of love with everything from deep tissue massages for two to an intimate dinner at your pick of five-star restaurants.

After a day full of romance, a sunset catamaran tour leaving from Moon Palace Jamaica makes for the perfect moment to ask the long-awaited question.

Proposal for a marriage at sunset, difficult to overcome

When on a trip to Cozumel, Isla Mujeres or Ocho Rios, there’s probably no better background for the perfect proposal than overlooking idyllic sparkling waters as the sun sets into breath-taking hues right before your very eyes.

From writing “Will you marry me”? in the sand to beach scavenger hunts, a sunset proposal can’t go wrong. And it’s not all about Caribbean sunsets, either–picture gently taking the hands of your beloved one into your own under the arch of Le Blanc Spa Resort Los Cabos, with the glistening Sea of Cortez as your backdrop.
