So you’ve got the girl of your dreams, the girl you want to spend the rest of your life with… so now it’s time to get down on one knee and pop the question! But where, how, when? This is a moment you will both remember for the rest of your lives so you need to get it right! You’ll undoubtedly agree the love of your life is worth so much more than a simple proposal, yes? So here are some of the world’s most romantic places to propose.
1. The Scene of Your First Date
Ok, so you may not be whisking her off to an exotic location but it’s the thought that counts. If you recreate your first date whether you ate out at a posh restaurant or went go-karting, take her back there and propose. It may be simple… but quite frankly really romantic.
2. On a Gondola Ride in Venice
This may be cliché but it works. Picture the two of you in that beautifully romantic setting, floating down the river together in a Gondola. Pack a picnic of strawberries and champagne and of course the ring – how could she say no?
3. A Magical Night in Prague
Prague with its olde-worlde buildings and quaint setting could be the ideal place for you to propose. Wait until dark; go for a meal somewhere cosy and intimate before leading your lover to the 13th Century Charles Bridge. This offers breath-taking views of the city’s little tiles roofs and mysterious statues that line the bridge.
4. The River Seine in Paris
Paris the city of passion and love! Take her to the Pont Neuf Bridge overlooking the River Seine – this is perhaps the most romantic place in the city. It’s a favourite for film makers looking to shoot a romantic scene and when you stand there hand in hand it won’t be hard to see why.
5. A Horse Driven Carriage in New York City
Whilst a horse drawn carriage ride through Central Park may seem a little old and overdone she definitely won’t think so. The fact that you have gone to all that time and effort to give her the perfect, most romantic proposal will be all it takes for her to utter the word ‘yes’!
6. Las Vegas
Las Vegas – the cultural capital of the world. It’s one of those places you must visit before you die so why not make a holiday of it and pop the question while you’re there? Yes it’s full of casinos but they’re incredibly flashy – your girl will feel like a modern day princess and with all those wedding chapels you could get married right there and then!
7. A Fairy Tale Proposal in Bavaria
Neuschwanstein Castle belonging to the late King Ludwig II is set high in the mountains of Bavaria, Germany. Make your special someone feel like ancient royalty with a horse and carriage to take you up the mountain path to the magical castle. Offering a stunning backdrop it’s the perfect place for a Prince to propose to his Princess.
8. The Top of Bath Abbey Tower
9. Boat Trip in Barbados
If you both share a passion for the sea then why not take her on a catamaran, spend the day floating off the shores of Barbados, doing a spot of scuba-diving and even swimming with the famous turtles. Imagine proposing to your loved one whilst floating over that beautifully blue sea, Strawberry Daiquiri in hand!
10. On Top of a Cornish Mountain
Cornwall has some of the most quaint little villages and seaside towns in the UK and has some excellent mountain and cliff edges too. Why not pack up a picnic full of her favourite treats, a bottle of bubbly and head down to Land’s End, climb to a cliff edge looking over the sea and watch the sunset. Now that’s romantic!
