Planning A Surprise Engagement in The Bahamas

Three Steps To Pull Off A Surprise Engagement

With emotions running high and adrenaline pumping wildly, its sometimes hard to wrap your brain around the technical side of achieving a successful surprise engagement. With a little planning ahead and execution, you can rest easy knowing that your special day will be a success. Here are three steps to a successful marriage proposal.


You can't very well propose without one, so this would quite naturally be one of, if not the most important element of your surprise engagement. Choosing the perfect ring is not at all rocket science - its all about choosing a personalized style suited to your unique relationship. The elements and style of the ring should be symbolic of your relationship with your significant other. There are so many beautiful and unique options available today, its understandable that you may become overwhelmed with the vast selection. The best thing to do in this case is to make a note of everything that you want in a ring and verbalize your request to your jeweler. This way, you will get everything you want, already made and ready to purchase, if available. However, if nothing that the jewelry stores have in stock "speak to you", then you may want to consider having your surprise engagement ring custom made. Designers like Kay Jewelers and Jared are highly sought after jewelers that provides amazing quality pieces that your fiancé-to-be will go crazy over.


Special events like surprise engagements call for equally special venues. Whether you are travelling to The Bahamas or within your home town, setting the atmosphere for a magical moment is important in creating the right effect. Unfortunately, in the Covid-19 environment that we are in, there are bans and restrictions to consider. Once you have chosen a location, there are a few things to take into consideration.

  1. If you plan on having your family and friends present, be certain that there are no restrictions on the amount of people allowed at a gathering. Call and book ahead as far as possible and ensure that all of your guest can be comfortably accommodated.
  2. If outdoors, its wise to consider weather and temperature for the time of year. Summer months are very unpredictable as far as rain and thunderstorms are concerned so make sure you have a plan B option just incase the weather suddenly changes.
  3. It is important to check with your hotel or resort if you're travelling, to see what their policy is on guests sourcing outside vendors such as photographers, videographers, picnic setups and so on. Nothing will ruin the moment faster than being shut down by security.


If you are travelling outside of your city and do not have prior experience with a photographer, it is always best to read reviews and ask as many questions as possible. Most photographers have a specific style of shooting and editing and will not take kindly to you asking them to change their style for you. If you don't like the style of shooting in their galleries, then by all means move on. Your surprise engagement photographer should listen to you and help you plan your engagement session, providing you with the best options and proposal ideas best suited to your venue and your budget. The time of day is also vital as some photographers style is editorial and mostly use natural light.

Its likely that a surprise engagement photographer will offer different package pricing ranges. An honest photographer will not advise on a package that you do not need and will provide you the best package and pricing to cover only what you need. There are many photographers that do great work. Be prepared to shop around until you find the surprise engagement photographer perfect for you. Once you settle on one book right away as availability goes quickly with the seasons.
