Searching for a grand backdrop to pop the question to your partner? We’ve come up with a 5 Instagram worthy engagement locations to help you narrow your search without getting too specific so you can find something near wherever you are.
There might be several reasons why you would want to find somewhere special to propose, so you can have that special spot to come back to later on for an anniversary or honeymoon; to help make the moment even more memorable or just simply to make it the best it can possibly be, even if no one else knows it happened there.
The seductive feeling of being alone on a warm beach with white sand, the ocean lapping at your feet while you walk along the shore. It’s certainly a desirable place to be regardless of why you’re there. Because most beaches worth visiting will have people on them, we recommend taking the time to seek out the right place, and time. If you’re away on vacation and plan to pop the question, scout out a few places before you decide to find the best spot and time of day. For photos, sunrise and sunset will offer a warm soft light, just make sure to not miss that light if you arrive later in the evening.
Fancy a bit of European charm for your proposal? To achieve this you may actually need to travel to Europe. Or if you live in Canada or want to visit, Montreal can offer some Instagram worthy European architecture.
West Coast Forest
If the outdoors is your thing, maybe a hike to a bluff overlooking a valley or a casual camping trip is the time and place. A proposal is a deeply intimate thing so it should reflect both of your tastes and preferences and if that means the muffled silence of the forest – then make it happen.
A Spot With A View
Fancy a unique view for your proposal? Consider vacations when you think about this one, where will your travels take you and what great architecture or structures can you climb to pop the question. Try not to be too cliche and do it on top of the Eifel Tower, unless that’s really and truly your thing and make sure it’s okay to take photos and so the things you need to do there. Timing will be important on this one too, you’ll want to be at a spot like this when the lighting is just right and ideally when it’s not pouring rain or windy.
Don’t like boxes? Step outside them and find someplace crazy and exciting. You’ll be surprised the unique things you can find down an alley in a big city, or the cosy corners you’ll uncover wandering the streets of a tiny village in France. Get creative and don’t be afraid to break the rules and have fun.
