It is one of those big life decisions, proposing to your partner. In every culture world-wide the partnership of Marriages, Unions, Blessings and Civil Partnerships comes along-side *gasps* – a proposal! 🙂
There are many marvellous places to propose to your significant other and obviously the place where you plan to propose (or even want to be proposed to) goes hand-in-hand with you and your partner’s ideals and aspirations. These places can be the most glamorous, cultured, idyllic and magical places where you can surprise and delight your partner however, it has to be said that sometimes the most romantic gestures happen right in your back yard (so to speak), on the sofa, in your favourite restaurant and quite literally anywhere imaginable to be fair! 😉 There really is no wrong place to propose!
For those that are looking for a bit of inspiration, I’m here to help out! I’ve scoured ‘tinternet’ (and places I know of personally and via friends) for the best places in the world where you can take your relationship to next level and start on a new adventure with your partner and best friend!
1.) Grand Tetons, USA: If you and your partner love the outdoors, why not head to the Grand Tetons. A spectacular place to witness the truly awesome nature that is present in the US. Imagine sipping a Prosecco picnic with a snow capped mountain view. A perfect place to propose!
2.) St Paul’s Cathedral Whispering Gallery, London: Perched high in St Paul’s Cathedral, the Whispering Gallery is one of the most romantic places to propose. One of the key architectural designs of the Whispering Gallery is that is can carry the slightest whisper (up to a whopping 100 feet). How romantic would it be to have your partner at the other end of the dome hearing you softly whisper “Will You Marry Me?”.
3.) The Bridge of Sighs, Venice: How about taking your partner on a Gondola tour across one of the most romantic cities in the world, after a long relaxing journey across the picturesque canals, you reach The Bridge of Sighs and pop the question here! Local legend says that lovers that show their affection under the bridge will be granted eternal love – what more could you ever asks for!
4.) Statue of Liberty, New York: Now, this might not seem magical – but I assure you it is (and can be). Proposing and being proposed to is a very personal experience and I have always thought it should happen in your favourite places. Most people know about New York being an awesome place to propose, but most might not think of Lady Liberty! Don’t let other peoples perception/judgement cloud your idea. Your partner loves you for YOU and will no doubt completely get the reasons behind choosing such a venue! 🙂
5.) Castell Coch (Red Castle), Wales: If you are looking for a truly magical castle to make your proposal, head to Castell Coch. Deep in the heart of South Wales – this castle looks and is a fairytale castle. Small and intimate it can provide you with a magical place to pop that special question.
6.) The National Orchid Garden, Singapore: For a picture perfect, idyllic moment, why not head to The National Orchard Garden in Singapore – a paradise filled with thousands of worldly orchids, from the downright beautiful to some of the rarest in the world.
7.) Maya Bay, Phi Phi Islands, Thailand: For the ultimate in paradise, charter a private speedboat to Maya Bay in Thailand. Take a bottle of champagne and propose right on “The Beach”. This is the perfect place for anyone hoping to impress their significant other!
8.) The Blue Lagoon, Iceland: After a relaxing soak in the Geothermal pools, why not surprise your partner with a ring – brought to his/her attention from under the silica that lines the base of the pools. Just remember not to lose the ring!!! 🙂
