There are a million and one different ways to pop the question, but lately, a new trend has reached new heights. The once infamous ‘mile-high club’ is now passé and a more exclusive membership is one with those who choose to pop the question mid-air. Aerial proposals have become all the rage and it’s obvious why.
First of all, the surprise factor is essential for a successful proposal, and presenting a sparkling diamond engagement ring mid-flight has got to take the cake in that department. You can choose to involve the flight attendants and have them announce something over the loudspeaker or keep it private and write it on her beverage napkin. Since people usually expect to be proposed to when they arrive at their destination, as opposed to on the way to it, she’ll be floored, along with the rest of the passengers!
Also, when you’re on an airplane, you’re essentially in limbo, floating in the air between two places. In daily life, if you’re neither here nor there, you’re likely to feel confused and unsure. But if you know you want to be with your partner and spend forever with her, then it doesn’t matter where you are, as long as you’re together. What better time and place to profess your undying love than while you’re soaring above the clouds between home and away?
From jewelry to perfume, inflight jewelry retailers are a thing now, and a mid-air proposal is an out-of-the-box idea and special proposal.
