For many, Labor Day weekend signals the end of summer. However, because it is a three day weekend for most people, it is a popular time to get engaged during a romantic getaway. If you are planning to propose this Labor Day weekend, keep these helpful tips in mind!
Don’t Wait Too Long
While you may be planning a Labor Day proposal, that doesn’t mean you have to wait until Labor Day to propose. Depending on the travel arrangements for your weekend, you probably want to ask her either Friday night or Saturday. If you’re arriving at a hotel or campsite late Friday night, then find the right moment to present her with a custom designed engagement ring on Saturday. Waiting to ask once you have already decided to pop the question just provides more chances for something to go wrong. By asking earlier in the weekend, you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy the romantic getaway.
Plan For A Quiet Moment
One of the most important things to do when planning a proposal is to pick a quiet moment for popping the question. Be sure to plan a romantic weekend getaway that provides these perfect opportunities. Whether its standing on the hotel balcony, a quiet walk through a vineyard, or sitting by a campfire, there are plenty of great times to ask for her hand in marriage. One of the things to consider is whether or not you want to propose indoors or outside. This will help you plan ahead for weather, as well as come up with a second option in case the moment isn’t right.
Be Sure To Pack The Ring!
It may seem like the most basic of advice, but be sure to bring the engagement ring with you on your vacation. Since the proposal will be a surprise, forgetting the ring is possible. Pack the ring in a safe spot that is also hidden. A good place to store the ring box before asking is with your accessories, such as your watch. This will prevent her from stumbling across the ring while searching for some toothpaste or an oversized T shirt to sleep in.
