Doing something “like a pro” usually entails that you’ve done a hundred times. We don’t want you to be a pro at proposing because of that reason, so we’re going to give you some tips instead. You can propose in a helicopter like a pro even if it’s your first time popping the question (but no judgment here). Let’s get into it.
Propose in a Helicopter Like a Pro
There are a couple of things to note here. First, it’s all in the details. Even if you have the most laid-back, no-frills partner, consider the small details. This will tie everything together. For example, do you have a song that takes you back to your first date? What about a favorite band you’ve followed around cross-country? Make a little playlist, download it to your phone, and let that be the soundtrack to your evening.
Another thing of note, take some Dramamine if you feel like either of you two might feel a little woozy up there. If it’s your first time in a helicopter, you never know how your body will react.
Have your speech memorized? And maybe don’t do it over the headsets in flight because the sound quality isn’t always perfect due to radio communications. Wait until you land. The last thing you want is for your words to get lost in the wind or to hear, “Huh” every five seconds. You can also have a “marry me” sign waiting on the landing spot which consists of large, eye-catching illuminated letters.
Lastly, don’t forget the champagne or dinner reservations. Celebrate at a nice spot (or wherever your little hearts desire). Then, you’ll be able to cheers and go back to the same spot every year afterward!
