Proposing on a pier is a popular option that many people consider. Nothing can be better with the sights and scents of the water, the beautiful view, and the fresh air. If you’ve decided that proposing on a pier is definitely the right choice for your partner, then these tips for proposing on a pier is for you!
Timing is Everything
- Try to avoid times when a large crowd of people will be on the pier
- If you want to propose in the morning, make sure that there aren’t a bunch of fishermen on the pier
- Visit the location a few times around the time of day that you want to propose so you know what to expect and pick out the perfect spot
- Because a pier is outdoors, you need to be aware of things like seasonal migrations of birds, when mosquitoes may be attracted to the area, and the like
- Preparation is key for any proposal, and proposing on a pier is no exception.
Check the Weather
- Make sure you know what the weather conditions will be like ahead of time, and plan for them
- If you’re proposing at night when it’s cold, make sure that your partner has on extra warm clothes etc.
- If there’s a chance for rain, ensure that you have an umbrella handy (one that will fit over you and your partner)
- If you plan to be outside for a long period of time, make sure that you have sunscreen so that no one gets burned
Secure your Ring
- One of the biggest proposal disasters is losing the engagement ring
- When you propose over water, losing the ring is much easier
- Use a ring box that holds the ring securely, like the slim modern ring boxes from www.ingstash.com
- Tie the ring to the ring box if necessary with a bit of ribbon as an extra precaution
