How to plan a surprise proposal in Cayman


So, you’re ready to propose? Have you got the ring? It’s time to think about your perfect proposal.

Asking someone to marry you, and even saying those four little words “WILL YOU MARRY ME?” is a big deal. So here is a little guide to a Sea Vows Cayman version of what we think would create the perfect moment.

Do you have a location that’s sentimental to you? If you’re a resident in Cayman, you are bound to have a favourite beach or restaurant that means a lot to you as a couple. If the plan is to fly into Cayman to propose, then we have you covered too!

Surprise Proposal in Cayman on the Beach?

If there’s one place unique, it’s Seven Mile beach! The expanse of white soft sand and clear tropical waters, whether it be sunrise or sunset, you can always find a secluded spot to ask that special question.

Surprise Proposal in Cayman on a Boat?

If you’re feeling adventurous, why not take your other half to Stingray City? With its shallow waist deep clear waters and surrounded by wildlife, it would be a proposal to remember!

Alternatively, kayak out to Bioluminescence Bay and propose under the stars, it certainly would be a night to remember!

Surprise Proposal in Cayman on Land?

If a hotel or restaurant is more your style, you’re not short of options! The Seafire resort and spa’s intimate tropical gardens, beach side cabanas and modern interiors and would be a spectacular back drop to any proposal.

One of our favourite restaurants for an intimate dinner proposal is The Grand Old House. With its intimate dining, white tablecloths, 5 star service and delicious cuisine, what better place to drop one knee and ask the love of your life to have and to hold you forever more.

Once that important location is selected, it’s time to decide the format. Are you planning a lavish affair with friends and family there to witness the big question? Or just the two of you? You will be able to make any specific arrangements with your venue or hire one of our recommended coordinators, such as Celebrations here in Cayman.

What you don’t want to forget under any circumstances, is a professional photographer! Not only can they assist with location scouting, but they also usually have a recommended list of vendors (just like us!) that can help with set up. And of course, they are very good at staying hidden while they document the romance of your proposal! (One tip to remember, tell your partner that you’re going out [afterwards] so they are photo ready!)

Do you have a special song to play after the “YES!” has been shouted to the sky? Do you need signage? Our vendor Studio Sixteen can help with that!

Seavows Cayman can provide you with vendors to help set up the proposal of dreams, all you have to do is ask the BIG question!
