Already have the ring? These might be the perfect places for a honeymoon.
NEW YORK, NEW YORK
So romantic they named it twice. It’s exciting, it’s fast paced and it presents a truly spectacular backdrop to that most important question. What better place to have your head in the clouds, almost, than atop the Empire State Building? The photos of this proposal will be treasured forever.
Want something a little more grounded? Look no further than the divinely beautiful Central Park – even jaded New Yorkers are swept away in this green haven in the middle of their city. Don’t want grass stains on your trouser knees? There are a myriad of deliciously decadent restaurants overlooking the park that are perfect proposal locations. But make sure you book months in advance – lovers from all over the world have made these places insanely popular for romantic dinners.
WE SAY ‘OUI’
When we say romance, you say… Paris! A city that is the epitome of amor. Picture yourself with your sparkling diamond on your finger with the lights of the Eiffel Tower twinkling behind you. Or sitting pretty enjoying a classic French picnic of cheeses, breads and red wine in one of the many lovely parks dotted around this awe-inspiring capital. The love of your life, the city of your dreams, swoon.
HOME GROWN LOVE
We Australians simply adore our beaches, and being proposed to on one is a dream many of us harbour. Let’s not make it any old beach though, let’s make it on the whitest sand beach in the world according to the Guinness Book of Records. Hyams Beach is a hop, skip and jump south of Sydney and promises to make this a proposal location you won’t forget. And we can’t forget the proposal you can see from space – proposals on and under the sea on the Great Barrier Reef are out of this world.
SPICE UP YOUR LOVE
Mexico is so hot right now, and rightly so. The Mayan Ruins in Tulum, overlooking the breathtaking Caribbean Sea, are a proposal or holiday destination that has to be seen to be believed. Straight after you say “yes” dive into the warm waters of the Caribbean and just see how your ring glitters. If getting close to nature is your thing, then steer yourselves inland with the steamy jungle behind you, why not pop the question whilst visiting the Cobá archaeological site with its pyramid-shaped temples.
WILD THING, YOU MAKE MY HEART SING
Get yourselves over to Yosemite National Park for a proposal that will take your breath away in more ways than one. Thundering waterfalls, majestic mountains or meandering rivers – this location has them all. Glamp overnight in one of the 13 beautifully appointed campsites or for the more energetic amongst you, hike to a stunning rocky outcrop and let the magic happen.
VENICE – THE TRUE CITY OF LOVE
For die hard romantics, there is only one destination to ask the most important question of all. Venice. Corridors and secret stone passages, countless bridges over endless water or being slowly guided in a gondola through the canals of this absolutely stunning city, the locations are endless for the perfect proposal spot. Trying to decide where to actually pop the question is a tough one. Rest assured, romantic places are around every corner.
