Proposal Planning 101: How to take your proposal to the next level.
You’ve found the partner of your dreams and it’s time to pop the question, but how can you give your proposal that extra-special oomph? Location, location, location. When Michael began planning his proposal to his girlfriend Sweta, he had one thing at the top of his mind: an epic location. Michael’s sights were set on Capri, a romantic Italian island destination just a stone’s throw from the equally stunning Amalfi Coast. Read on for Michael and Sweta’s proposal story.
HOW THEY MET
“My fiancée and I met on a dating app. We talked for a few weeks before meeting in person. When I finally met her in person, I felt like we had known each other forever. The rest is history. Our love grows day by day and we are so excited to get married!”
“I wanted to plan a memorable proposal. Since meeting my fiancée, Italy has always been my dream proposal destination. It’s such a romantic place with sunsets like nowhere else in the world. Our Capri proposal could not have gone better thanks to our proposal photographer! It’s a place that forever has a special place in our hearts!”
THE BIG DAY
“I told my fiancée that we were going out for a fancy dinner. We got all dressed up and went for a walk to the proposal location. Once we got there, she was blown away. Our dinner was on a balcony terrace at Hotel Caesar Augustus overlooking the water. We walked to the balcony where I saw our proposal photographer Andrea, but my fiancée was still oblivious to what was happening. She just wanted to take some photos by the balcony. We took a selfie together, but when my fiancée turned around, I was down on one knee. I don’t really remember much of what I said, even though I had planned a speech for her, but she laughed and teared up at the same time throughout the entire proposal! After the proposal, we enjoyed the incredible sunset over dinner to finish off the best night of my life. We couldn’t have imagined a more perfect night!” — Michael
