Perfect Places for Proposals*

Choosing the perfect engagement ring for your beautiful bride-to-be is the first stage of the process.

You searched the malls for the perfect jewellers and spent hours browsing through catalogs. You pondered over countless designs, contemplating Tacori rings, and other such designers. Finally, you settled on an engagement ring you’re sure your bride-to-be will love.

Now you have to present the ring and ask that all-important question…  ‘Will you marry me?’

Picking the perfect place to propose will send many grooms into a tailspin. Don’t panic! This list of romantic places will please even the most pernickety of brides.

Niagara Falls

One of the most stunning vistas in the world, Niagara Falls is a classic choice for grooms-to-be. Set against the thunderous flow of water, the iconic Horseshoe Falls creates the perfect backdrop. The atmosphere is electric, as nature unleashes its powerful cascade in the most beautiful way. Breathtakingly gorgeous, this destination certainly has the wow factor! As the spray creates a mist around its visitors, the scene is set for the most important question you’ll ever ask. 

Empire State Building

New York’s iconic building is a prime spot for a marriage proposal. Featured in many romantic movies, the Empire State Building is synonymous with love. Make your proposal An Affair to Remember and capture the era of bygone grandeur in a way Cary Grant would be proud of.

Take the elevator and climb to the top. As the wind blows, show your bride-to-be the sights and sides from miles around. Avoid visiting during the busiest tourist season and find the ideal spot for popping the question.

Venetian Gondola


Consider a proposal in the stunning Italian canal setting of Venice. Steeped in culture and character, Venice is a one-of-a-kind place. This makes it perfect for asking that once in a lifetime question. Venice is filled with beautiful places for getting down on one knee. Romantic restaurants, hotels, and attractions are the perfect backdrop. But create even more romance with a proposal aboard a Venetian gondola. As the gentle waters of the canal ebb and flow, your bride will say ‘yes’ to a floating proposal!

Jacobite Steam Train

There is nothing quite like a vintage steam train for capturing the glory age of romance. The stunning scenery of the Scottish Highlands will take your breath away as you enjoy a gentle journey by rail. From Fort William to Mallaig, the passage is a beautiful tour of Scotland’s unspoilt countryside. As the gentle pull of the steam train chugs along the track, gaze at your loved one over a glass of champagne. Famous for featuring in the Harry Potter films, stop at Glenfinnan Viaduct as it sweeps its impressive curve.


Vermont’s snowy mountain resort is a wild wonderland for lovers of the great outdoors. Visit in the fall when the leaves are a rich cacophony of reds, oranges, and yellows. Seek out the vintage covered bridges that provide the perfect spot for getting down on bended knee. Or take a walk in the open countryside and find a romantic hideaway to propose in private.

Asking your girlfriend to marry you is one of the most important questions you’ll ever ask. So make sure your pick the perfect place she’ll remember forever.
