Getting Your Surprise Engagement Right

Flowers and chairs ready for a weddingHere at Ufford Park, we live and breathe weddings – and we’re proud to be able to host hundreds of happy couples here at our hotel and spa resort on days which are custom-made to be their very happiest. Offering functionality and flexibility for all manner of different traditions and last-minute wedding additions, we’ve been home to a number of exceptional and exquisite weddings and receptions alike. Beyond this, of course, the most important part is the engagement – and getting this right as a surprise is always worth the time and effort.

Traditionally it is down to the prospective groom to pop the question – meaning that it is largely their responsibility to be as covert as possible when arranging an engagement ring, ideal surroundings and – of course – getting the timing just right. There may be many couples out there who actively discuss their wedding ahead of time – meaning that a surprise may not always be on the cards when it comes to an engagement, but getting a surprise just right is largely a combination of listening carefully and being very selective.

You’re going to need to think about location, timing and the ring itself most of all. All these elements add up to the perfect engagement surprise, and of course allow for an all the more memorable occasion. You’ll need to listen to your potential bride’s likes and dislikes, and if you’ve been together long enough to want to get married, we’re hoping you already have an idea about what will make a surprise engagement all the more special for them!

The type of ring you opt for and the location you propose in will of course be entirely down to the tastes of both you and your fiancée. You could choose to take your partner out to dinner, or somewhere romantic like a beach or even the Suffolk countryside (which is right on Ufford Park’s doorstep!). You could even do something more outlandish – why not propose on a sailboat, a cable car, a roller coaster or out in the middle of nowhere? You don’t need to follow the pack!

When you’ve popped the question and you’ve really ignited the magic, call us for more information on booking your magical day – we’ll be here to help you both make it a spectacular occasion you’ll never want to forget.
