Most people have a love and affinity for water – whether its swimming, or simply walking along the beach while the waves crash against the shore. While most of us would be happy staying above the water, there are those who find peace and beauty below it. If you and your partner love being underwater – via scuba or snorkeling – then an underwater proposal might be for you.
An underwater proposal requires a great deal of forethought and planning to pull of successfully. Safety has to be the number one priority. Ideally, the proposal should take place in a controlled environment such as an aquarium or pool that is closed to dangerous wildlife and free of other hazards. Having other people nearby who can jump in at a moment’s notice is also a good idea.
Once you’ve taken the proper safety measures, you have to decide how to propose when you can’t speak to your partner. Having signage made that is easily visible is one of the best ways. It can be placed beneath the water beforehand so that the proposal is a complete surprise. Another option would be to spell out the words with seashells or rocks and then swim with your sweetie over to the spot that its set up. Make sure there is enough lighting so what you’ve prepared can be seen with ease.
Of course, sometimes things don’t have to be spelled out. Simply pulling out the ring while making thoughtful and loving gestures can showcase your intent. If you decide to go with this option, make sure the ring is secure so that you don’t drop or lose it.
