Top Ten Destinations to Propose
You’ve met the person you want to spend the rest of your life with and it’s time to seal the deal. Here at Jigsaw Travel we have been privileged to not only arrange overseas weddings but also surprise trips which can change your life from a single mingle to wedded bliss.
To make your proposal to be memorable below are a few suggestions across the Globe.
Heart Reef, Australia
Sure it’s a bit of a journey but where else other than the Great Barrier Reef in Australia will you find a perfectly shape reef in the form of a heart. Only 17m in diameter it can only be seen from the air therefore a private aerial tour is essential.
Onboard a Gondola in Venice
Riding through the canals of Venice on a gondola ride is quite possibly one of the most romantic experiences there is. Why not make it even more memorable by dropping down on one knee. Planning ahead will keep you from spending too much money on your Gondola, local companies can arrange a serenade dinner followed by a sunset stroll.
Versailles Palace Paris
On top of the Eiffel Tower is a bit more run of the mill these days so if you still love the romance of Paris, few places on earth evoke the luxury of the Versailles Palace. Travel by chauffer driven car, enjoy a tour of the Castle before dropping to one knee in the beautiful gardens.
Cinderella’s castle at Disney could appeal to those looking for the fairytale or to be a little less typical and for some comedy, you could sit behind your future fiancée and open the ring box as you’re going down Splash Mountain.
Juliet’s Balcony, Verona, Italy
O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo? The site of the greatest love story ever told has to be the perfect proposal spot as the site of the greatest love story ever told.
Empire State Building, New York
Although considered to be a bit cliché, the observation deck on the 86th floor of the Empire State Building remains a favourite classic. To do it without the crowds head up around midnight, the last elevator goes up at 1:15am allowing you to enjoy the dazzling lights of the Big Apple with a degree of privacy.
Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado
For hikers and outdoor lovers of all types, Rocky Mountain National Park is home to numerous magnificent peaks that soar over 12,000 feet. Thrill-seeking couples may want to head to “The Diamond,” the sheer and prominent east face of Longs Peak that was named for the shape of the cliff – you don’t have to climb all the way to the summit, just walk up the Longs Peak trailhead and when you get to a place with a good view of “The Diamond,” you can get down on own knee and present your own gem.
Isle of Skye, Scotland
Perhaps I am little biased however if you want to pop the question in the most beautiful country in the world the Isle of Skye offers a fantasy-like landscape that appears as if it must have been painted right into the sky. Filled with some of the most dramatic mountain and coastal scenery you’ll ever set your eyes on, the enchanting Fairy Pools, a series of flowing pools that cascade down the River Brittle with crystalline, azure waters, may be one of the best spots.
Bora-Bora, French Polynesia
Intoxicating Bora Bora is the island of romance, its dramatic scenery, privacy and amenities makes it one of the most desirable locations for couples in love. Stay in an overwater bungalow and if you want to go all out when it’s time for the big proposal you can arrange a sailing just for two around Mount Otemanu.
Hermitage Bay, Antigua
Guaranteed to transform even the frostiest ice-maiden or polar man into a hopeless romantic, Hermitage Bay in Antigua is the ultimate lovers’ hideaway. Completely secluded, overlooking the ocean and with stunning views of Montserrat and Nevis, it’s hard to imagine a more idyllic spot. If you don’t get a ‘yes’ here, the sad truth is you probably won’t get it anywhere!
I hope this is given all you romantics out there some food for thought. Feel free to share your proposal moment in the comments below or share your ideal romantic destination.
