Skydive Proposal: An Extraordinary Way to Pop The Big Question
A skydive proposal is one of the most exciting and unique ideas for a wedding proposal. It’s a perfect mix of adrenaline and adventure to enhance the excitement of proposing. After all, a life of adventure should start with the biggest one! It’s a fantastic and fun twist to one of the most time-honored romantic traditions.
At Skydive Monterey Bay we’re super stoked to help love birds link up for a lifetime of thrills. If you’ve never skydived before you’re likely wondering how a skydive proposal would work, what exactly is possible, and what opportunities you have to personalize the big moment. These are important considerations for planning. So, we’re going to relive a recent proposal at Skydive Monterey Bay.
How A Skydive Proposal Goes Down
Skydive proposals typically happen on the ground after the skydive. For a variety of safety, communication, and logistical challenges (you wouldn’t want to be holding an expensive ring falling through the air at 120 mph), proposals can’t happen during freefall or parachute flight. On the ride to jump altitude is an option, but typically, post jump is the best time to make your move. Your partner will be peaking with feel-good bliss neurochemicals, and extremely caught up in the excitement, and therefore, will be least expecting it then.
The first step is to let us know your intentions and plans. We can help, or offer suggestions on props, banners, messages painted into the ground, and/or help with “yes” celebratory packages.
On this proposal, it seemed like a normal first jump tandem skydive. They both got geared up and excitedly went up on the airplane. The plan was for the finance to land first, prepare the ring, and get down on one knee while she landed next to them moments later.
To add some visual artistry, we spray-painted “Claire, will you become a Pearson?” (that’s his last name for those following along) in the landing area. Even when painted quite large, it’s usually only readable just a few moments before landing. So it was just the right amount of time for Claire to really process what she read before the “down on one knee” proposal.
