Getting engaged is one of the most memorable moments of your life and for many partners who are planning to propose, choosing a romantic or exotic location can often make the moment much more memorable and turn a holiday into one of a lifetime.
Whether you are planning to return to a place that means a lot to you as a couple, or are seeking out a brand new adventure, planning a proposal is very exciting but can be quite overwhelming at times. If you are planning to propose on holiday or in a popular engagement location, then you want to make sure that not only the day you propose is special, but the rest of your time together, too.
One of the biggest moments of your life deserves a special place to celebrate, but it doesn’t need to be elaborate. There are some popular engagement locations that aren’t the typical cliche locations. Here are 3 of the most popular engagement locations around the world where you can propose.
Bow Bridge, Central Park – New York
New York is a really popular location to pop the question, mostly due to the abundance of stunning locations around the city. This means that whilst it is popular, it can also take away the magic of your proposal if you spot another couple getting engaged in the same spot.
Central Park is a popular spot in New York to get engaged, but if you’re looking for a romantic little spot in amongst the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple, then head to Bow Bridge. Overlooking The Lake, Bow Bridge is often full of wildlife and surrounded by big, drooping trees and people boating in The Lake, so is a beautiful place to propose. If you want to celebrate afterwards, then head to the Tavern On The Green for lunch, one of the most iconic restaurants in New York.
Early Morning Paris, France
Paris is a typical engagement location for many couples and is perhaps the most popular engagement location in the world, but if you want to make your proposal truly special, then head out early in the morning instead, before the Parisian world opens for the day.
With a beautiful sunrise glow, you’ll see Paris in a completely different light and, with many places empty, you can take your pick of spots for popping the question. By proposing early in the morning, you then have the rest of the day to celebrate, perhaps heading to somewhere special like Angelina for breakfast, or to Bisou for a few celebratory glasses of champagne.
Hot Air Balloons in Cappadocia, Turkey
If you’re looking for a beautiful, scenic place to propose, then it can’t get more stunning than the rock spires of Cappadocia in Turkey. Here, homes and churches are carved into caves and there are mountains in the distance. What makes Cappadocia special is not only the rugged mountain landscape, but the hot air balloons.
These balloons fly through the terrain around 250 days a year, so you can propose with a very unique backdrop and then perhaps see if you can take a hot air balloon ride to celebrate afterwards. This is one of the most picturesque locations for an engagement, so if you are looking to get some fantastic photographic memories, this should be one of your top choices.
So, there are 3 of the most popular proposal locations across the world, with choices for those looking for the spectacular to the romantic. Now that you have your location sorted, you just need to choose the ring you’re going to propose with! Vintage engagement rings are popular choices for location based proposals as they are very beautiful and can make the proposal all the more special.
