Best Kept Secret Proposal Ideas in Ocean City, NJ

Are you looking for the most romantic way to propose to your loved one? Instead of going for the simple and traditional proposal route, plan an epic and romantic beach proposal.

Surprise them with an unforgettable vacation to Ocean City, NJ, rent a beach house, find a romantic spot, and propose.  

Monihan Realty has witnessed several couples getting engaged on the beach in Ocean City, NJ, with their partners letting them in on the plan. They are here to share with you the best secret proposal ideas in Ocean City, NJ.

1.    Spell It Out in the Sand

Instead of saying, “Will you marry me?” why don’t you spell it out in the sand? You are on a beach vacation, so take full advantage of that. You can write down the question in the sand in the wee hours of the morning when your loved one is asleep. Wake them up to go for a stroll, passing through the sand lettering and go down on the knee to propose.

2.    Lantern-Lit Boardwalk

You can line the boardwalk with glowing lanterns around sunset. When your loved one comes out of the beach house, you can say what is in your heart and propose.

3.    Oceanside Dinner

Beach houses come with their own kitchen. You can cook up a delicious meal for your loved one and set a table with chairs near the beach. Send them on a shopping spree and when they returns, have dinner ready. When you feel it is the right time, pop the question.

4.    Serenade Your Loved One

Can you sing? If you can, serenade your loved one. Hire a band to play music as you serenade them with a song. If you can’t sing, that’s okay. Tell the band to play a song as you propose. You can play the same song on your wedding day during your first dance.

5.    Sailboat Adventure

You can take a watercraft out into the ocean. For your loved one, it will be a normal beach activity that will soon become one of the most precious moments of their life. If you cannot drive the boat, you can always hire someone to operate it, but let them know about your plan in advance.

6.    Use Signs

Similar to writing on the sand, but in this one, you are writing, “Will you marry me?” on a handmade sign. If you are a creative person, you can create a handmade sign to place in the sand. You can write any other phrase on the card as well.

7.    Surprise Celebration

You can make your proposal even grand by asking your close family members and friends to join you in Ocean City, NJ. Tell them what you plan to do and ask them to join you at a later date. They can arrange a party on the beach. Having them there will be one surprise with the second surprise you proposing in front of everyone.
