We are super busy planning some amazing proposals for Valentine’s Day. Without a doubt, planning a proposal on Valentines can be extremely difficult as it is of course, the most romantic day of the year. You want to make sure that it is a surprise, but that it’s not done in a cheesy way. Here, we share some proposal tips with you to make this year’s Valentine’s Day, the best one ever.
Does she want a Valentine’s Day Proposal?
If you have told your girlfriend that you are doing something on Valentine’s Day, then she is probably thinking that you are going to propose. Proposing on Valentines can be a girl’s worse nightmare, and she will be on edge the whole day. So, before you propose this Febraury 14th- you HAVE to make sure that she would be happy with a VDay proposal.

Check Valentines Plan/Packages with Vendors
Probably the most popular proposal idea in Dubai is proposing on the beach over dinner. Whilst we have planned some amazing and beautiful private beach dinners, some hotels want to maximise Valentine’s Day by putting other tables on the beach. If you want a completely private setting then you need to check with the hotel how many other diners will be around you. The last thing that you want to hear is a proposal at the next cabana before you pop the question. Remember as well, since Valentine’s Day is one of the most popular days to propose, you really can’t afford to leave any bookings to the last minute, as bookings will fill up fast, and usually at a slightly higher cost – so this isn’t the day for last minute planning.
Surprise her with an early proposal
Here’s a little tip for an ‘early proposal.’ Say you have made dinner reservations, and when she gets home from work she finds that the house is filled with flowers. Have a musician there to sing her favourite song as you get down on one knee and propose.
Remember though, some women like to be fully prepped for a proposal, with their hair and makeup done and a beautiful outfit. If you are planning a proposal like this, then make sure she would be happy for a proposal in her work attire just after she walks through the door.
Don’t be Predictable
If you are having dinner, then she will probably be expecting you to pop the question during desert, so try to avoid anything cheesy like a ring in the cake. Instead, after dinner head home where the house will be filled with candles and flowers that spell out ‘Marry Me’.
Remember what your Girlfriend likes
This is a mistake that we see men make time and time again, and we try our very best to steer them in the right direction. It is very easy to think about a proposal that you want, but sorry- it’s not about you for that day. Make sure you give her the proposal of her dreams, and one that she will want to tell all of her friends and family for years to come. If she is a private person, then don’t stand on the table in a busy restaurant and declare your love. Instead, hire a private rooftop terrace and propose under the stars.

Always get Photographs
Believe me- the moment is over so quickly so you want something that you can look at to remember the important milestone. One of the biggest regrets we hear is where a proposer didn’t want to hire a photographer. You will want to share the moment with friends and family, but you have to pick your photographer wisely!!! You want someone that can capture the moment you are on one knee and will not bombard you with the flash or spoil the surprise if they are seen before you propose. We have a number of amazing, trusted photographers that we use and who are the BEST in the city.
Hire a coordinator
Hiring a proposal coordinator will ensure that everything runs smoothly. If there are any issues on the day, from a vendor running late to the table setting not having enough rose petals on it, these will be sorted without you even knowing about them. We will deal with all the stress, so that you can just relax and enjoy the day.
Good luck with your Valentines proposal, and if you need any further help then we would love to hear from you.
