Making the decision to get married is not an easy one. It takes time, consideration, and deep thought to figure out if you want to marry that special someone in your life. This is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make, so it needs to be the right one. And once you’ve made that decision, it’s time to think about the proposal.
Picking out the perfect engagement ring and proposing in an ideal location will not only make her say yes, but it will be a moment neither of you will forget. Whether your budget is big or small, let your imagination go as you think of the most romantic place in the world to propose to the one you love. Here are five ideas to get you started and hopefully inspire the perfect engagement proposal.
1. Paris, France
Paris, France is one of the most romantic destinations on earth. Everything about the city is romantic, from the Eiffel Tower, to the bridges along the Seine, nearly any spot in Paris will be ideal to propose in. One of my favorites is on the hill in Montmartre, a spot that overlooks the entire city. At night, with all the lights, it is truly magical.
2. Hawaiian Islands
Hawaii is an ideal location for your romantic proposal. The warmth, ambient noises, and calm cool ocean breeze will all add
to a romantic atmosphere on one of the stunning islands. Taking a stroll along the sand just as the sun sets and you get down on one knee is truly an unforgettable moment. Whether it’s on Maui’s south shore, Kauai’s remote north shore beaches, or a gorgeous mountain outlook in Oahu, the proposal will be special. There are plenty of other amazing Hawaiian locales including restaurants along the water, waterfall hikes, and a special sunrise proposal over breakfast.
3. New York City, New York
New York, New York. The city that never sleeps. This can be quite an advantage when planning your proposal. The sheer number of famous areas in this 4 mile by 11 mile island is incredible, so there is truly no shortage of places to propose. Some timeless favorites are the boat ride in Central Park, the top of the Empire State Building, or any of New York’s amazing and unique restaurants.
4. Rome, Italy
When most people think of romance, they think of Italy. The language, the food, everything is filled with love and romance everywhere you look in Italy, and especially in Rome. The historical sites are breathtaking, and the food is just incredible. Taking a romantic stroll through the city past the Trevi Fountain and the Coliseum, finishing with a delectable Italian dinner will stir every romantic feeling in your body. Rome is an amazing place to make some of your own history by proposing in the midst of such splendor and antiquity.
5. London Eye – London, England
While London isn’t terribly well known as a romantic city, the London Eye is definitely one of the most romantic spots in town. And this is no ordinary Ferris wheel. It offers unparalleled views of the city and even an option to bring some sparkling Pimms on your priority boarding if booked in advance for the special occasion. London offers some other great proposal locations, but this one is by far the best and most beautiful.
