Going back to the scene of your first date or dining at her favourite restaurant are apt proposal ideas, but what if you want to take things up a notch on the scale of romantic gestures?
Once the question has been ‘popped’ neither of your lives will ever be the same again and associating this event with a romantic setting is definitely worth the effort. So, in the event that you find yourself really stuck for ideas and money is no object then here are our top five ideal places to propose.
Grand Canal, Venice
Take an hour-long gondola ride through the canals of Venice and make your move as you pass through its majestic renaissance facades. For that extra touch, conceal a bottle of wine with a couple glasses. Once the ring is on her finger and all’s gone well, cue the gondolier to finish off with a solo rendition of ‘That’s Amore’.
Be sure to incorporate a visit to Piazza San Marco for some al fresco dining as you take in your breath-takingly beautiful surroundings together.
Eiffel Tower, Paris
Paris is considered one of the worlds’ most romantic cities and, if your girlfriend believes this to be true, she will be blown away by a proposal atop the Eiffel Tower. Take a romantic walk down the Champs-Élysées afterwards and stop to celebrate with a glass of champagne.
Restaurants, cafes and bars are all open till much later in the evening, so you and your fiancé can enjoy a great evening together and savour every last minute of your special day.Trevi Fountain, Rome
Try for a ‘yes’ at Rome’s Trevi Fountain and you will feel as if the dramatic Roman construction was built for this very purpose. Get there in the early evening when the whole monument is beautifully lit up or arrive early in the morning to avoid the throngs of tourists.
There is no shortage of things to see in historic Rome but be sure to conclude your evening by indulging in some authentic Italian cuisine, as you reflect on your days’ triumph.
Niagara Falls, Ontario
There is something truly magical about the natural wonders of the world that makes them the perfect setting for a proposal...and Niagara is the ultimate. Check the schedule and pick a day when you can catch the spectacular illumination and fireworks display. It’s the ideal way to celebrate if she says ‘yes’.
The surrounding area is full of great places for dining and entertainment, including the well-known Casino Niagara. If you’re planning to make a romantic weekend of it, the picturesque town of Niagara-on-the-Lake is a must.
Las Vegas, Nevada
What makes Vegas the perfect place to propose is that it is simply the perfect place to celebrate any occasion. Replicas of the world’s most romantic destinations are available to you on one strip and offer specific services to ensure that your big moment goes smoothly. Opt for a Parisian proposal package or choose between many more options including garden and gondola proposals.
Another huge benefit of proposing in Vegas is the unrivalled line up of shows, restaurants, bars and casinos that await your arrival for the celebrations to begin!
Remember if you treat her well, she will be more understanding when you decide to return to Vegas for your stag do.
