Okay, let’s admit it: almost every person in the world has dreamt of proposing to their most special person. Think about it: after a long relationship and courtship, you’re finally certain that this person is the one you want to spend the rest of your life with. So, you go canvassing for engagement rings before settling for the one you feel suits them the best, you plan your proposal and opt to do it in the privacy of your home. Finally, the chosen day comes, you drop down on one knee and finally pop the question to your partner and they say “yes”. The notion is quite romantic, isn’t it? 

But believe it or not, there is a way you can make your proposal even more romantic and intimate. While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with proposing to your beloved at home, some may feel that doing so can be a bit plain and as such, they turn to different places to propose to their partner in order to ensure that the day will be as lovely and memorable for their beloved as it is for them.

In this post, Vella Diamonds, the jewellery store to turn to when you’re purchasing engagement rings or wedding bands, lists the five best places to go to for an uber romantic proposal.

  1. Cliffs of Moher, Ireland – The Cliffs of Moher is an incredibly popular attraction in the southeastern part of Ireland and is often characterized by 8km of towering coastline cliffs that jut out from the sea. If you intend to get down on one knee and ask your partner to marry you in this particular Irish location, locals recommend that you do so early in the morning to ensure maximum peace and privacy. Plus at that time of day, there’s a high chance that the sun is beginning to rise so if you want your proposal to have a sunrise backdrop for epic photo opportunities, then an early morning proposal at the Cliffs of Moher is definitely the route to opt for.
  1. Juliet’s Balcony, Verona, Italy – Surprisingly enough, plenty of people dream of having a love like Romeo and Juliet and equally surprising, there’s actually a place in Verona, Italy that’s known as Casa di Giulietta, or Juliet’s House. Bought and dubbed as such by the City of Verona more than a hundred years ago, the house’s association to the tragic character has brought droves of couples to Verona to swear their eternal love and fidelity to one another. And of course, the house comes equipped with a balcony known as Juliet’s Balcony. While the star-crossed lovers may not have had their happy ending, you and your beloved can certainly work your way towards your own happily ever after by pulling out your engagement rings and proposing to them on the balcony. By doing so, you’ll no doubt have a proposal that you and your partner can look back on in the future with smiles on your respective faces.
  1. Central Park Bow Bridge, New York, USA – When people think of proposing in New York, the first thing that pops in their mind is the Empire State Building. And this is pretty understandable; it is a well-known landmark, after all. Not to mention it provides a perfect backdrop of New York City. But unfortunately, it IS a well-known landmark, meaning that it’ll be full of selfie-taking tourists that can make a proposal more difficult and nerve wracking than it already is.

As nice as the view of the New York skyline is, if you’re looking to propose in this city, forget about the Empire State. Instead, head to the middle of Central Park with your engagement rings and find the Bow Bridge. Not only does it overlook the park’s lake, but it’s also home to a myriad of wildlife, making it the most picturesque place in New York to pop the question to your lover.

  1. Lake of Love, Bruges, Belgium – On the other hand, if you want to give your partner a fairytale proposal, consider heading to the Lake of Love in Bruges, Belgium. An enchanting spot surrounded by greenery and beautiful houses, this lake is home to a legend of two star-crossed lovers who are even more tragic than Romeo and Juliet. However, it’s also because of this legend that the lake and its accompanying bridge became a popular engagement spot for couples. This is due to the urban legend that states if one were to kiss their partner there, their love would last forever. Definitely a good luck charm that you’ll want in your arsenal when you propose to your beloved and tie the knot in the near future.
  1. Neuschwanstein Castle, Bavaria, Germany – Okay, the Lake of Love is good for a fairytale-esque proposal, yes, but if you’re looking to go all out with making your partner feel like royalty when you pop the question, nothing beats Bavaria’s Neuschwanstein Castle as a proposal location. Look at it; it’s an actual castle! Surrounded by dense forests and hiking trails, proposing to your partner anywhere in the castle’s vicinity will undoubtedly make them feel like the proposal was plucked from a storybook. That’s definitely one for the memories!
