When you’re ready to pop the question, it means you’re ready to spend the rest of your incredibly precious life with one other person. You’ll want this moment to be special and unforgettable. That doesn’t mean choosing the right spot to make it happen is an easy task, though. With an entire world filled with a plethora of options, you might be asking yourself where the right setting is for the most romantic international proposal.
If you want to create an ambiance that will be remembered forever, check out these five international destinations for the perfect marriage proposal.
Ah, the city of love! When people think of romance, they think of Paris, and for good reason. Paris is listed as the most popular proposal location because of its romantic feel. From the art to the architecture, the city exudes a dreamy sense of romance that captivates visitors as they galavant through stunning, winding streets.
While you might be thinking of asking your partner for their hand in marriage at the Eiffel Tower, there are so many other beautiful places that you may not have considered. The Pont Neuf, which means “New Bridge,” is actually the oldest standing bridge in Paris that takes you across the Seine River. Or perhaps you could get on bended knee at the Jardin des Plantes where the flowers have been in bloom since 1635.
For being an incredibly small island, Iceland is home to over 10,000 different waterfalls. And what tells a story of romanticism more than a gorgeous waterfall? Whisk your loved one away and take a hike towards the unreal image of Kirkjufellsfoss near Mount Kirkjufell or pack a picnic at Seljalandsfoss along the southern coast of Iceland.
Wherever you decide to ask the question, the picture-perfect display will be so good, you will absolutely want to come back and have your waterfall wedding at the very same spot.
Since the word “romance” originates from Rome, it’s no wonder why this country wouldn’t make the top of the romantic marriage proposal list. From the gorgeous streets of Milan to the tiny roads of Assisi, there isn’t one nook throughout Italy that you wouldn’t find romantic to ask your big question.
If you’re feeling like taking the extra journey, head down to Sicily to place yourself on an island along the Mediterranean coast. But if Sicily isn’t right for you, there are several other islands you may want to consider, too.
The Mediterranean Sea is filled with gorgeous islands you never thought you would have the chance to experience. That is, until now! The Greek islands of Corfu, Naxos, or Mykonos, all are undeniably some of the most romantic places to visit while you build up the courage to propose. Of course, the most romantic of them all is Santorini.
Known for its ocean hikes along with the city of all-white buildings with blue accents, you’ll paint your picture-perfect proposal with orange and pink sunsets. There are tons of private villas you can rent that create an intimate setting where you can swim in your own luxury pool and spend the evening drinking wine with a home cooked meal.
When you’re ready, take a long walk towards the cliffside as you wait for that perfect moment where you pop the question.
If you’re looking for an experience you’ll never forget, think about taking a grand adventure to South America. You wouldn’t necessarily think of Peru as being one of the most romantic places to propose, but you would be surprised to find all this country has to offer.
Peru has everything you could possibly want in a destination proposal such as gorgeous snow capped mountain views, beaches with breathtaking sunsets, or old ruins overlooking some of the deepest, widest canyons around the world.
The thing that makes this so romantic is the uniqueness of this particular destination. While the previous countries are all romantic, there is little out there about people’s experiences proposing in the jungle around monkeys and sloths.
It’s one of the most amazing international destinations for a wedding proposal out there.
