Some proposals take a bit more time and planning than others. If you dream of proposing to your partner on the high seas (or any body of water) there are some extra steps that you should take to ensure smooth sailing.
Prior to taking your partner out on any type of watercraft, you should know whether they may get seasick. Motion sickness occurs when a problem develops in the inner ear and can be highly unpleasant. Plan ahead and take Bonine, Antivert or Dramamine with you. If you or your partner has a history of motion sickness, take the medication ahead of time. Just be careful of any potential side-effects such as drowsiness that may occur.
If you or your partner is unable to swim, make sure that you have life jackets on or within easy reach, just in case. In a moment of excitement it may be easy to lose your balance and fall overboard. Safety first.
Speaking of excitement – a wedding proposal is a very special time and people generally have strong reactions to the big moment. This is fantastic, except that you may be holding a valuable ring in your hand and it would be extremely easy to drop it into the water if you aren’t careful. Make sure that the ring is secure – put it into one of our specially designed slender ring box for safekeeping via www.ringstash.com so that nothing disastrous happens.
Other considerations include having sunscreen with you if you’re going to be out for several hours in direct sunlight, and having plenty of water on-board. Choose foods that won’t spoil outdoors, and keep everything refrigerated until you’re ready to eat.
