"Oh, The Places You'll Go"
#1: The "Outdoorsy" Couple
Are you and your lover always seeking adventure? Fascinated with nature? Sports fanatics? Consider popping the question overlooking the city of Nassau during a water jet-pack experience by Jetlink Adventures. While flying thousands of feet in the air over a massive body of water, pull out the ring and ask your significant other to be yours eternally as Jetlink's media team capture the memorable moment. If you're into more of a mellow vibe, consider popping the question during The Flamingo Show at the Adastra Gardens Zoo and Conservation Centre. While the flamingos are standing up on one leg, you can be getting down to propose - your significant other won't know what's coming!
#2: The Creatives
If you and your partner are considered the 'artsy-fartsy' creative type, think about popping the question at the opening of an exhibition at the National Art Galley of The Bahamas or in an art class at The Current: Baha Mar's Art Studio. Or better yet, how about proposing to the love of your life at a music festival held at the Antonius Roberts' Studio and Gallery Hillside House or the newly opened Fiona Amphitheatre? If you're a musician, you can probably write a song asking your bae for their hand in marriage and sing your proposal. The possibilities are infinite!
#3: The Spiritual Duo
Profess your love to your significant other during a meditative chanting session at the Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat. Have the instructor and class chant the soothing words of "Will you marry me?" in your lover's ear - make it a session they'll never forget. You can even pop the question during a nature walk through the tropical lush landscape of the Cloisters Gardens.
#4: The Power Players
On the come up? Making power moves like The Obamas? Go all out to declare your love with a proposal on the rooftop of the newly opened SLS Baha Mar. What better way to pop the question than overlooking the skyline of the nation's capital? Slip the ring in a glass of your lover's favorite white wine and watch their reaction upon discovery. Simple yet classy!
#5: The History Buffs
Consider taking your love to a new level... how about 206 feet above sea level? Celebrate you and your boo overlooking Cat Island from the Mount Alvernia Hermitage. It'd be a surprise to surely remember!
#6: The Ballers
If money's not an issue for you and your S.O., plan a weekend-getaway trip to STAR Island Bahamas, a private beach resort located on Cabbage Cay off the Northern point of Eleuthera. Arrange your travel through Cacique International, the country's premier destination management company. Get lost exploring this eco-friendly paradise and when the time is right, pop the question when they least expect it.
#7: The Foodies
We can't forget the foodies! If you and your lover love to wine and dine, arrange a lunch picnic with a surprise proposal at the end. Restaurants like Luca Fusion and Louis and Steens Coffeehouse coordinate luncheons for special occasions... and needless to say, this is a special occasion.
Whether you're proposing in the backyard of your home or on the rooftop of a fancy restaurant, if your significant other feels important in that moment, that's all that matters. Allow us to help you make that day truly magical with our Catalogue of event essentials that'll sweep your bae off his/her feet.
