Planning to Propose? Tips to Plan The Perfect Wedding Proposal in Melbourne

So you have been planning to settle down with the love of your life, but you are unsure how to ask the question. Well, you have come to the right place! We have many options on what to do when proposing marriage to her and specialise in romantic Yarra River proposals (and we bet they will work for anyone). 

If you are overwhelmed by your marriage proposal but want to avoid making the usual mistakes, here are some fabulous ideas to help you create a unique and memorable proposal. We have listed below some great proposal options in Melbourne.

Read through our tips below to find out exactly what you need to know before popping the question:

1. Choose a place like the Yarra River with exceptional city views to provide the perfect backdrop and romantic proposal.

2. Surprise her with a beautiful engagement ring. You can buy an inexpensive one or go all out and spend thousands. She’ll love either option. But no matter what kind of ring she chooses, make sure it’s something you’re passionate about. That way, she’ll feel connected to you forever. You may also consider getting a custom engraving done on the band. Not only does it show off your unique personality, but it also means you’ll never forget this special day together.

3. Hire an expert photographer to capture the extraordinary proposal moments. Suppose you hire an expert photographer to take pictures at your proposal site. In that case, they can capture beautiful images of your proposal scene without worrying about anything but capturing the moment for you. You don’t need to spend hours trying to find the best lighting conditions or worrying about battery life or other things that may cause you to miss out on the perfect photo.

4. Find the perfect music. If you need to check if your partner’s music taste matches yours, play some songs for her. You could ask what kind of songs she likes best so that you know which ones are appropriate. Then, when you propose, play one of those songs. It will elevate your proposal from “okay” to “amazing.”  Our boats have bluetooth stereo’s to easily connect your favourite music.

5. When it comes to proposals, you can plan anything, but your words will make your proposal unique. 

6. A private cruise down the Yarra River is exceptional for couples. It’s enjoyable when you’ve got a bit of time to relax together before the big day!
