The best places to propose

Your proposal is a moment you and your partner will both remember forever. You know just what to say, so all there is left is to pick the perfect spot to do so. Your engagement story will likely be talked about, so it’s a good idea to put a little thought into the location. Here are some of the best places to propose to your partner. 

(1) Where you had your first date 

There’s a beautiful symmetry to proposing where you had your first date: it reminds you of the journey you’ve taken since the beginning of your relationship and how far you’ve come. Go back where it all began.

(2) Where you first met

This is a favorite when it comes to proposing. Asking someone to be your husband or wife at the place where both your worlds merged is extremely romantic. Similar to the first date, this shows how far you’ve come together. You may use details from that exact day to remind both of you how special it was, whether you met in a classroom, at work or at a party.

(3) At her ideal wedding spot

Some people have had wedding plans since they were little and already know everything they want for their big day. You can ask your future wife or husband to marry you right where they’re going to say “I do” so they get some experience saying yes.

(4) At a family get-together

There’s something special about being able to celebrate your engagement with your loved ones. If your partner is close with your family, you might want to consider asking them at a family gathering and include all her loved ones. You can even make up a story about the day being a disaster, only for your partner to find out it was your plan to propose all along. Proposing in this way lets everyone participate and acknowledge how important family is going to be in your lives.

(5) Holland Park’s Kyoto Garden

Holland park is situated in west London and offers a unique Japanese-style landscape with multi-colored foliage and plants that’s ideal for romantic proposals. This romantic hideaway is perfect for a spring proposal because of the pink blossoms that grow then.

(6) Paris 

It’s no secret that Paris is one of the most romantic cities to pop the big question. It’s not just about the Eiffel Tower and the many romantic bridges, although they do enhance the ideal proposal scene. Paris is home to some of the world’s most classy hotels, so an in-room proposal will be very memorable too.
