    my Fi proposed with the box – he just had it in his jacket pocket and I didn’t see a thing! If it is a total surprise, you don’t look for things like that. We went to a few places that night so it wasn’t in his pocket the whole time – it was in the car until we got to the final place where he proposed (I thought he was locking the car so I walked ahead – and still did not notice!) My Fiance said the hardest part for him was getting it out of where he hid it (in our bedroom) and into his pocket, and of course I was getting changed etc!

    My guy proposed with the ring in the open box. He’s a police officer, so even though he had the box in his pocket before he proposed that night, I just assumed what I felt when he hugged me prior to him getting down on one knee was his gun! That worked out so well, because he knew I was used to feeling that through his jacket when we hug, so he had the ring box right beside it and I never knew. It was the most wonderful surprise proposal❤️️

    My fiance’ had a ring box, but it was winter and it was in an interior coat pocket. I’ve been a part of other people’s proposals before and what they did was have me hold it. For example, they were on a walk and I came up with my band and started singing to them, and he got down on one knee to give his speech or whatever and I took a ring box and rose from behind my back and gave them to him, which he presented to her. 


    I’ve worked in restaurants as a hostess and had guys come in hours before their date to give me cards/gifts/flowers which I kept hidden and were then presented to her on a silver tray from their server. 


    Don’t worry too much or over think it. When my fiance proposed, he didn’t even get a chance to open the ring box , before I said “omg omg omg omg omg” and hugged him. I didn’t even look at the ring. Then I realized I got a ring out of the whole deal, and I GRABBED IT OUT OF HIS HANDS and was like, “oooohhhh!!!!” and then he awkwardly was like “So…..are you going to answer me??” And I realized I hadn’t even said yes hahaa. In my eyes, it was perfect and very human. So don’t overthink it. However it goes, it will be perfect. 3

    Yes, my guy proposed with the box- a custom fancier one than the generic jewlers, actually. It was a brushed satin texture stainless steel with flowery filigree design. He also got down on one knee- the whole bit, and believe me, I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way! Traditional IS best! That being said, do you think you could bring like a camera case or some kind of unsuspicious bag with you while hiding the ring inside? Your idea sounds lovely. But also please take into account that floating lanterns ARE hard to work with, especially if there’s any amount of breeze or wind whatsoever, they’re really light and can blow around in the water super easy, which means they could end up super far out or else be all at the shoreline. My now-husbands sisters fiancé tried to propose with the floating paper lanterns and they were hugely unsuccessful because of a slight breeze and even just trying to light them and set them in the water was really challenging, one even caught fire! It was funny but really sad at the same time! Just something to consider, good luck!!
