Thinking of proposing? The world is your oyster! Made up of seven continents and 195 countries, there are plenty of locations if you want to propose overseas. The choice is yours.
Dreaming of getting down on one knee during a tropical getaway on the beach? Or perhaps you envisioned more of a snowy wonderland when you pop the question? No matter what you have in mind, you can turn any holiday abroad into a magical proposal.
Recently, we gave our top tips on proposals overseas, but now, we will share our top 10 proposal destinations worldwide!
Check out our top 10 proposal destinations in the world.
Like a dream, the gorgeous tropical island of Oahu, Hawaii, is a stunning holiday destination offering a wide selection of proposal locations. Home to breathtaking beaches, cliff views and volcanic ridges, the laid-back vibe of Oahu is infectious, making it a splendid destination to ask for your partner’s hand in marriage.
Some ideas include taking advantage of a quieter beach like Kaimana Beach to pop the question whilst watching the sunset. For a more classic approach, go for an intimate dinner overlooking the ocean or immerse yourself in the culture at a luau and finish the night with your proposal.
Medieval meets modern-day world, Dublin, Ireland is an enchanting place to get down on one knee. Rich in history, this beautiful city has plenty of proposal-worthy spots. Whether you’re looking for an ancient, historical or modern spot, you can take your pick.
If it is a scenic background you desire, go for a stroll along the cliff walks overlooking Dublin Bay at Howth Head. For a proposal fit for a princess, head to the manicured gardens of Dublin Castle, where you can imitate a fairy-tale-worthy happy ending.
An iconic travel destination, Santorini, Greece, is a favourite among travellers looking to propose. The gorgeous cliff towns with iconic white and blue domed buildings are a photo opportunity, but nothing beats the sunsets.
For the best photo opportunity, propose in your private oceanfront villa as the sun goes down and a magical mix of pink and orange hues covers the sky above the turquoise sea. Need to calm the nerves? Savour a few glasses of wine at one of the wineries overlooking the sparkling Aegean Sea before getting down on one knee.
Gondola-filled canals and lapping water – Venice, Italy, is one of the most recognisable cities in the world. A romantic city that gives Paris a run for its money, Venice is a cute spot to ask the big question.
Are you looking for a classic proposal? Nothing beats a romantic gondola ride for two around the city of Venice. Time it perfectly as you go under the Bridge of Sighs and share a kiss for what is said to bring eternal happiness. For those who want to be on land, try one of hundreds of bridges around the city, including the Venetian Bridge, or go to the neighbouring island of Burano for an enchanting canal backdrop to use for your big moment.
Looking to turn your Canadian escape into a holiday you’ll never forget? No matter what time of year you visit Banff, Canada, it will be a trip unlike any other. A nature wonderland filled with mountains, ice glaciers and turquoise lakes, it is hard to find a spot that isn’t proposal-worthy!
Head to the hidden treasure that is Lake Louise and propose while admiring the stunning emerald lake. For winter visitors, arrange a more intimate moment with a private sleigh ride. Nothing is more remarkable than witnessing the glaciers and adding a proposal in – it is a sight straight from a storybook!
A bucket-list city, there is no better place to propose than New York City in the United States of America. The city that never sleeps is the backdrop of many series and films, famed for its iconic skyline and landmarks. Plus, it is home to many proposal spots.
Nothing is more iconic than to propose on top of the Empire State Building. With a commanding view that reaches across Manhattan, proposing here will have you feeling like you’re on top of the world. For a quainter proposal, head for a picnic in Central Park. A magical space with plenty of quiet corners, the renowned park has plenty of opportunities.
With varying landscapes, Queenstown, New Zealand, is truly a one-of-a-kind destination that is an excellent opportunity for any proposal. From glaciers to waterfalls, there is no shortage of sights to explore.
Set the mood with a romantic candlelit hot tub experience. Relax and take advantage of the blissful moment, popping the question with the mountains behind you. For those who like adventure, go for a hike and enjoy the views from Skipper’s Lookout. Make this photographic opportunity more memorable by proposing with one of our diamond engagement rings.
Bora Bora is one of the most luxurious stays in French Polynesia and it is a destination people only dream about visiting. Deluxe accommodation, crystal-clear water, majestic beaches and complete tranquillity – this island is the epitome of a tropical holiday. Therefore, it would make an even dreamier proposal location!
For a proposal dreams are made of, take advantage of your overwater bungalow and propose with the crystal blue water lapping behind you. For a more formal setting, book a sunset cruise and propose whilst enjoying the exotic view.
One of the most beautiful spots, the Amalfi Coast, Italy, is another post-card worthy spot to show your partner how much they mean to you. Dramatic cliffs kiss the crystal-clear waters speckled with colour European architecture – a truly magical place for any proposal.
Head out and enjoy the waters on a boat trip to the Isle of Capri, finishing the Italian dream with a proposal over sunset. Boating not your scene? Head to the beach with the spectacular wall of buildings shadowing over you as you get down on one knee to pop the question. A proper pinch-me moment!
The city of love, Paris, France, is the ultimate spot to take your relationship to the next level. Overflowing with gorgeous architecture and a romantic atmosphere, many lovers flock to this city to pledge their commitment to one another in a grand proposal.
Go for the timeless move with a proposal under or on the Eiffel Tower. The famed tower is the scene for many love stories, making it the perfect spot. Looking for something less cheesy? A romantic dinner followed by a walk along the Seine is just as memorable! There are no limitations when looking for proposal-worthy moments in this city.
