Choosing to propose abroad does tend to ensure that you and your partner are going to have a really epic proposal story. It makes sure that it is truly an amazing and memorable experience. If you are considering proposing, then the location is going to be incredibly important. Obviously, there is a lot that goes into planning a proposal anyway, from finding the perfect ring to working out what you want to say. Here is why you should consider proposing abroad and some of the best places to do it.

The Scenery

Firstly, the scenery abroad is simply likely to be better. Proposing is a huge milestone in a person’s life, and the emotions are likely to already be heightened anyway; imagine the backdrop of proposing in another country. It just adds more to the moment. A beach, a stunning waterfall or the view at the top of a mountain is going to make the moment truly unforgettable.

The Weather

The weather in Britain is notoriously unreliable and unpredictable. In that sense, proposing outside in this country is often risky. Your plans could be derailed at any moment. On the other hand, the weather abroad tends to be a lot more consistent. Clear skies make for a perfect proposal regardless of the climate, although, of course, this will be something that you need to consider when planning whether or not you would prefer sunnier or colder climes.

The Photo/Story

In today’s digital age, the engagement photo is everything, and the story is also important. Choosing to propose abroad ensures that you will have a stunning ‘we’re engaged’ photo and a great story to share too. The photo’s backdrop will be stunning, and thanks to the relaxing nature of holidays, you are also likely to look better too because you will be happier, more well-rested, and you might even have a tan to boot.

Suggestions to Consider

Obviously, the choice of destination will depend entirely on who you both are as a couple and what you look for in a holiday. That being said, there are a few popular options that you might want to consider. Firstly, Egypt is a great place to propose. It is a great holiday destination as a whole, but proposing with the Pyramids or the Nile as a backdrop is bound to be truly magical. There are a number of destinations for you to consider depending on what else you want the holiday to have, but Cairo does tend to be one of the favourites. You could organise a private dinner at one of the high-end hotels or eateries, which has a truly breathtaking view but ensures that your moment remains private.

New York City is truly one of the most famous cities in the entire world, and for a good reason, it is the ultimate city break. There are a lot of options here, NYC is often seen as a once-in-a-lifetime trip, and there is a lot to do and see, so planning the itinerary carefully is absolutely vital to ensure that you hit everything that you want to. In terms of proposing, you could opt for a carriage ride in Central Park or a public declaration in Times Square; the views at the top of the Empire State Building provide an amazing backdrop or even the Rainbow Room at the Rockefeller Center. Maybe your partner has a favourite film or TV series which is set in NYC. You could always take a tour and choose to propose at any one of those locations.

Finally, you could also choose to propose during a trip to Brazil. The natural world is truly without rival when it comes to finding the perfect proposal spot. Brazil is inundated with natural beauty; there are so many amazing places to choose from. Cruising down the Amazon River is an option, as is a hike to the top of Sugarloaf mountain or even exploring the UNESCO World Heritage Site and proposing at the Iguaçu Falls. While these might seem ideal for adventure-loving couples, it might put off a lot of people who prefer a more relaxing holiday. Brazil also has beaches and cultural elements to explore.

Any one of these locations would provide the perfect backdrop for your proposal. Obviously, you will need to keep in mind your partner’s preferences as well as your own. Working with a travel agency can help when it comes to building the best itinerary for your holiday, which builds to a memorable proposal and a truly unforgettable holiday overall. Remember, while important, the location is secondary to the proposal itself, so remember to think about what you want to say and how you want to express yourself to your partner. The words really do matter.
