The decision to marry someone is one of life’s monumental steps. The asking of the question is also equally important. It is a moment that both of you will cherish for the rest of your lives. To make this memorable moment even more impactful, the where and the when and the how also need to be considered. We cannot help you with the when and the how, but we can certainly help you with the where. Here are some amazing, romantic destinations around the globe where you can go on bended knee in style.
Venice is undoubtedly a romantic destination. With gently lapping waters of the canals, cosy rides in gondolas, hidden bridges and cobblestoned alleys, Venice is a no-brainer. Be it the piazza San Marco, Rialto Bridge, Doge’s Palace or the island of San Giorgio, each nook of this city oozes love and provides the perfect backdrop for asking the big question
GoFro Tip: Plan for a quiet and idyllic lunch in Torcello at Locanda Cipriani restaurant. Celebrate your love with an Itallian lunch on the terrace, sitting under a shaded pergola.
The sheer beauty of this small island in Greece emanates romance, no matter where you go. The most popular town of Santorini is Oia, which is well known for its panoramic view of the volcano, gorgeous buildings, and most of all, the sunset. There can be no better time to ask your special someone for their hand in marriage than before a gorgeous sunset. You can also choose Akrotiri, which is near the southern tip of the island, or the Red Beach, with its unforgettable red sand and red cliff.
GoFro Tip: Plan your stay at the Mystique Hotel with its white-washed, cave-style suites and secluded terraces that offer amazing views.
Though not a unique choice, the City of Love holds its charm over couples even today. The Pont Neuf, the oldest standing bridge on the Seine river, has been a spot favourite for many. Pop the question at dusk when the city conspires to add the most sensational golden hue to your romantic surroundings. The Eiffel tower is undoubtedly another fascinating option. A stroll down Canal St-Martin, or Luxembourg Gardens are also great options.
GoFro Tip: Make your moment even special by taking a little row-boat to the Temple Romantique, or the Temple of Love, on a small island in the middle of Bois de Vincennes park.
Napa Valley in California offers picturesque rolling hills and clear skies amidst grapevines and private estate grounds to set the mood for the perfect proposal. Make private tasting reservations at a vineyard of your choice and sweep her off her feet. Choose between a range of wineries to ask the big question at. Peju Province Winery gives you a French countryside atmosphere, while Domaine Chandon offers a more traditional and casual setup. If you are looking at something more royal, perhaps Chateau Montelena is the way to go.
GoFro Tip: We recommend going for a romantic dinner at the Travigne restaurant. Sit under a tree decorated with charming fairy lights as you enjoy a sumptuous meal with, of course, a glass of wine.
Choose from around 200 islands, including the capital city of Male, and propose to her on a sandbank. With soft, white sand around you and clear waters fading into blue, Maldives promises to enhance the most memorable moment of your life. Or maybe you would prefer to reserve an underwater restaurant at Conrad Maldives to surround yourself with aquatic life when you propose. You could also choose between a sunset cruise, a submarine ride, or just take a walk along the glow-in-the-dark bioluminescent beach.
GoFro Tip: Unwind a little by opting for a couple’s massage on the beach. All that planning would’ve certainly taken some energy out of you, and a massage by the turquoise waters is the perfect solution.
The love of your life deserves to know how special they are to you, and these destinations serve as the perfect catalyst to your proposal story. Since the proposal will probably be a surprise, you must be very careful while planning the entire getaway. From coordinating your dates to booking the ideal place, you must pay attention to detail.
