Do you feel that you’re ready to pop the question to your partner? If yes, that’s great! Now, the next order of business is making the proposal extra special.
Location is one of the critical factors that can make the proposal more special. You can do it in the restaurant where you had your first date, or you could go all out and do it on top of a skyscraper in London, or in a historic castle in Germany.
We’ve compiled the four most romantic destinations in the world to propose. These destinations aren’t the typical cliches where you and your partner can make an everlasting memory.
Bow Bridge, Central Park, New York City
Forget the usual proposal spot in New York City, which is the Empire State Building. Instead, head over to the middle of Central Park, where you can find the picturesque Bow Bridge. This cast-iron bridge has been featured on a lot in a lot of movies and TV shows and provides a spectacular view of the Manhattan skyline towering over the entire park. The bridge quickly becomes the most romantic spot in Central Park, especially at sunset.
The Shard, London
There are so many ideal places to propose in London, so picking the right spot can be daunting. So why not do it at the highest point in London? There are six fine-dining restaurants in the building’s 31st-52nd floors, which serve excellent food you and your partner will enjoy. If you want to go all the way to the top, you can book tickets to visit The Shard’s observatory deck, which is 72 stories below ground. However, before you do this, make sure your partner isn’t scared of heights first.
Orange Garden, Aventine Hill, Rome
What comes to your mind when you hear “Rome”? It could be the majestic Coliseum, the iconic Trevi Fountain, or the historical Spanish Steps. However, trying to propose in these packed tourist destinations is just asking for trouble. To escape the majority of the crowds, try heading to The Giardino (‘Orange Garden’ in English) located on Aventine Hill. This garden offers a more serene and intimate atmosphere where couples can just sit back and enjoy a bottle of Italian wine.
Neuschwanstein Castle, Bavaria
If you want the proposal to feel like a fairy tale, why not do it in a castle? Or, in this case, a massive castle? Bavaria’s Neuschwanstein Castle is a Romanesque Revival palace built in the 19th century located in the village of Hohenschwangau in Bavaria, Germany. The castle is one of the most popular locations along Germany’s Romantic Road. Luckily for you, there are German proposal planners offering marriage proposal services in the castle, to save you time.
After you’ve picked a location, that’s awesome. But the work doesn’t stop there. The next orders of business are booking plane tickets, purchasing a lab-grown diamond ring, hiring a photographer, and arranging all the other elements to the proposal.
From areas that will make you feel right at home to far-flung majestic castles, these proposal spots are guaranteed to get you that sweet yes.
