Ideas for a Proposal Trip

Welcome back to the Travel Like a Star blog! Here on our blog, the Starlight2Travel team highlights informational and inspirational travel tips. Today, we're taking a more-romantic approach to today's post.

It's the time of year where wedding season is nearing an end, and engagement season typically is starting. The most popular time of year to get married, especially here in Northeastern Ohio, is in the fall. Similarly, the most popular time to get engaged is in the fall or around the winter holidays! Engagement season lasts through Valentine's Day which is the next most popular season to get engaged.

If you're thinking of getting engaged, instead of planning your proposal around the holidays, why not take your surprise to the next level with a romantic trip for two?

Here at Starlight2Travel, we love LOVE. Romance travel is one of our specialties! We have always dreamt of planning a surprise engagement trip. The trip could either be a vacation that turns into an engagement, or the trip could be a surprise overall too! The choice is, of course, up to the person popping the question!

In hopes of making this a dream come true for us (and you), we are sharing our top seven ideas for a proposal trip in this blog post. Before we do, as a quick reminder, if you're planning on proposing, let us help you plan a trip and a surprise of a lifetime! It's our honor to make your extraordinary ideas possible!


Idea One: Make the Whole Trip a Surprise

Even the most calculated-calendar person has always dreamt of being surprised with plane tickets that leave within the next 24-hours. Why not start off your surprise with an even bigger surprise -- leaving the country!

Idea Two: Surprises upon check-in

Some guests who are celebrating special moments get surprise gifts upon check-in. These gifts could be beverages or spirits, or chocolate covered fruits! It makes seeing your room for the first that even more impressive!

Idea Three: Private Photography Session

Scheduling a photographer for the proposal or as a special touch to announce the proposal is a great addition to an engagement trip. Usually when a couple gets engaged, they share the news with the world with a professionally taken engagement photo! Capturing the moment while in destination makes for the best memories and photos!

Idea Four: Romantic, Private Dinner

Usually when a couple is going to get engaged, they first have dinner in a fancy atmosphere. Then after dinner, the proposer asks at the dinner table or on a walk on the beach after! S2T can help coordinate the perfect private dinner for two with the help of our friends in your destination of choice.

Idea Five: Beachside or Poolside Engagements

If you're thinking of a daytime proposal, consider proposing while at the beach or pool! There is great opportunity to have a certain song playing (by request during a pool or beach party, or privately if you bring a speaker!)

Idea Six: Adventuresome Proposals

Plan a special activity hiking the rainforest or a mountain. Take off on a trip for two to a romantic cenote. Set out to see a nearby city and find a special spot. Your proposal could be centered around doing something the two of you love in a place you've never been.

Idea Seven: Romantic Spa Trips

After you've asked your important question, winding down from the excitement can be tough. The best way to relax in your destination is spending some time at the spa. Have a special couples massage planned for the day after. Or schedule seperate massages and meet back at the thermapool totally relaxed. It's the perfect "last touch" to an engagement trip.


We love the opportunity to make any trip extraordinary. When it comes to adding the romantic touch, we know just how to help! If we can help you plan the surprise proposal trip of your dreams, let's get in touch! Starlight2Travel, also, loves to plan honeymoons and destination weddings too! But, we'll save that information for another blog post!

Until next time... toodles!
