Sunset is known as a romantic time of the day, and for good reason. But did you know we also really love Maui morning proposals?
Here are five reasons why you should considering popping the question early on in the day:
5. Less people on the beach
Sunset is a popular time to be on the beach. While there are definitely some beaches that tend to be less busy, timing can also help keep crowds down. If you envision a beach proposal and want the moment to be as private as possible, sunrise or early morning is going to be your best bet.
4. Gorgeous lighting
Sunrise colors can be just as amazing as sunset.
Those pastel hues found at the break of dawn are dreamy.
Morning lighting results in intense blues in the sky and ocean that give off that idyllic Hawaii vibe.
Some locations crave ample light to look their best.
3. You can throw off her suspicions
If you think she might be expecting a proposal on your Maui vacation, planning an unexpected morning proposal is a fantastic way to surprise her. We can plan something that will fit seamlessly into already existing plans. For example, if you’re going on the Road to Hana, suggest getting an early start to make the most of your time and stopping to “eat breakfast on the beach” before the long stretch of driving. She’ll never suspect a thing!
2. You’ll be able to keep the romance going all day long
Getting down on your knee in the morning allows you to relax the rest of the day. It also gives you the chance to make your first day as an engaged couple super epic and memorable. Imagine celebrating your proposal with a horseback ride, helicopter tour, couples massage, or sunset sail AND being able to be in the moment because you won’t be nervous anymore.
Many of the best restaurants on Maui have gorgeous sunset views and to get prime seating, you have to make your reservation for when they open for dinner service. If you choose a sunset or morning proposal, your evening will be free to snag the best dinner seats. Make sure to tell the restaurant you’ll be celebrating your engagement!
1. Beautiful symbolism for the start of your future together
There’s something so magical about the beginning of a new day, all the possibilities and excitement over what the day is going to bring. Seems like such a fitting time to kickoff the next chapter of your lives as a future married couple!
“Egyptians believe in the power of the sunrise. They believe each morning begins not just a new day, but a new world.”
