Romantic Proposal Ideas In South Africa

What is a Romantic Proposal?

A marriage proposal is a custom or ritual, common in Western cultures, in which one member of a couple asks the other for their hand in marriage.

If accepted, it marks the initiation of engagement, a mutual promise of later marriage. Not all engagements begin with a proposal of marriage.

Romantic Proposal Ideas In South Africa

1. Couples Spa Day Proposal Ideas

This idea is very simple and easy to do for any couple or gentleman who’s a bit nervous about proposing. You can book a lovely couples massage with your loved one, where you both will be lying on a bed on either side of each other. 

2. Under The Sea

The aquarium is one of the most popular ideas in Cape Town, whereby you take your partner to the aquarium and go underwater to go and propose or if you’re on holiday, it’s nice to go snorkelling in a beautiful clear blue sea and then pop the question while you’re snorkelling.

One thing that we would suggest is to always ensure that you have a costume jewellery ring or perhaps a similar ring to the one you are going to propose because you don’t wanna lose your ring under the water.

3. Surprise Vacation Proposal Ideas

You can talk to the airline or the hostess beforehand and ask them to make that special announcement for you, while you would go down on your knee and pop the question.

“One of my friends, which I know of, her fiance proposed on the aeroplane, so he used the announcement on the aeroplane, he got one of the air hostesses to announce it and he proposed on the plane while they were on their route to one of their holidays.

4. Hotel Or Resort

Another option would be to wait until you arrive at your destination. Organise with the hotel to have your room beautifully decorated with flowers or balloons.

You can even do a movie under the stars or a cooking class if preferred. If you’re going to a tropical destination like Mauritius, we love the Lux Resort, they ensure interactive romantic proposals. 

5. The Billboard

This is not something for everyone and if you’re not a public person we wouldn’t advise this. If you have the option in your city or state where you have a billboard available, inquire! You might find that they’d be so excited to be a part of your proposal that they’d happily give you a really good rate to do it.
