The most beautiful places for a marriage proposal
By Kate Sheppard
When it comes to when, where and how to propose, many choose to propose on vacation to make the trip even more special and memorable. This can be a great way to take some beautiful photos of the moment, which can then be sent as postcards to all friends to announce the engagement.
But where are the most beautiful places to propose if you want to get engaged? Should it be a traditionally romantic place like Paris or Rome, or maybe a place that says something about you as a couple, or a destination that has special meaning to both of you? Or maybe you want to have the vacation of a lifetime, and the ring is the icing on that cake? Here are some ideas for that very important moment.
Engagement in Europe
If you don’t want to travel too far, but still want to have an unforgettable vacation, European cities are the ideal place to get down on one knee. Paris is the city of love and the perfect place to propose if you like it cheesy and romantic. If you don’t mind the fact that a lot of people have already done this, you absolutely must come to Paris, as it is the second most popular place in the world for a marriage proposal.
If you want a more original destination for your marriage proposal, but still steeped in romantic history, Italy might be the country for you. Whether you want to propose in one of Rome’s historic ruins, amidst the art of Florence, or in the vineyards of Tuscany, you’ll be hard pressed to find a place in Italy that you won’t love.
If you want to slow life down a bit, England’s “Lake District” offers stunning scenery with secluded areas for a private marriage proposal where it’s just the two of you for miles. Take a boat ride or a hike if you’re feeling adventurous, then settle down for a romantic picnic in the hills or by the water. But don’t forget to pack the champagne!
Snuggle up in the Caribbean.
If you want bright sunshine, sandy beaches and crystal clear waters for the proposal, then the Caribbean is the right place for a beautiful marriage proposal. This is also one of the most romantic places for a marriage proposal. But don’t panic, if you don’t have a particular island in mind, you can explore different regions on a Caribbean cruise and choose the island you like the most.
The cruise ship staff will also be happy to help you organize the marriage proposal either on land or on board the ship itself, making the trip an unforgettable experience. The gorgeous surroundings will make any photo look even more beautiful and all your friends and relatives will be thrilled. And the ring will sparkle like the sea in the sunshine, so be sure to show it off!
Marriage proposal in winter wonderland
You prefer the cold weather? Snow and ice are more your thing? A trip to Norway or Iceland with a hotel stay in an ice hotel and the chance to see the Northern Lights gives you the perfect opportunity to get up close and personal with your partner.
and experience perhaps one of the most fantastic natural phenomena. What could be more romantic than a marriage proposal under the glittering skies of the Northern Lights?
Take it a step further and make a fun and festive marriage proposal by visiting Lapland. Dress warmly, embark on a husky sleigh ride and top it off with a marriage proposal.
New York as a cinematic backdrop
The ultimate place for a marriage proposal is Central Park. Do as the tourists do and propose on a carriage ride in Central Park or climb to the top of the Empire State Building for the complete romantic-comedy experience. There are so many famous landmarks in New York that you’ll be spoiled for choice.
Times Square is the ideal spot for New Year’s Eve, or escape the hustle and bustle with a marriage proposal on the Brooklyn Bridge and the sights of New York ahead of you as far as the eye can see.
Go on a Safari in Africa
If you’re an animal lover, you can let your wild side run wild with a safari trip. The African steppes offer a variety of wildlife that can make the event extra special, making for an unforgettable setting. With lions, tigers, elephants or giraffes in the background, a marriage proposal is sure to be special, whether you’re driving through the country in a jeep or enjoying dinner in a tree hotel in the middle of the forest.
You could even rent a hot air balloon to take you over the Serengeti in Kenya, or propose in the shadow of the awe-inspiring beauty of Victoria Falls on the Zambezi River.
Wherever you choose to propose, it’s sure to be magical and memorable for you (assuming he or she says yes!), but proposing abroad is always a very popular choice. Whether you like it kitschy and traditional or something more outlandish, there’s a destination for every couple. Be sure to send a postcard to your loved ones so everyone knows!
