City of Love
There’s probably no better place to propose than the City of Love, Paris. The Eiffel Tower is the quintessential location for proposing in France, but the city has many other sites that are just as romantic. Montparnasse Tower is the second tallest building in Paris and offers a 360 view of the city, including the Eiffel Tower, from its observation deck. Another option is in front of the glass pyramid in the courtyard of the Louvre. To celebrate, find a café to enjoy a glass of champagne or fine French wine.
Under the Northern Lights
There are fewer natural occurrences more romantic than the Aurora Borealis, more commonly known as the Northern Lights. There’s an entire niche within the travel industry that caters to those who want to capture the magnificent light show. You can book a night’s stay in a glass-topped igloo to watch the greens, blues, and purples dance through the sky while snuggling your future spouse before popping the question.
Cheer on the Team

Call your favorite sports team to talk about setting up an epic proposal that will be shown on the big screen. You’ll instantly have thousands of fans rooting for your future marriage.

On Top of a Ferris Wheel
You can match the high of proposing to your special someone by being high above everything else when dropping to one knee. The world is full of famous Ferris wheels, which are typical for couples to enjoy together. The London Eye and the Singapore Flyer have larger compartments so you can set up a fancy celebration inside the capsule or invite friends to witness your love.
Love on Top of the World

Nothing to Wine About
Napa Valley and the surrounding areas are perfect for a proposal between two people who appreciate good wine. With several wineries close together, book a limo to make a day out of wine tasting and vineyard tours. Work with the staff at your favorite venue to create the picture-perfect proposal on their property. Cheers to your new engagement by splurging on a special bottle of wine.
