Is there a more romantic place to pop the question than in the city of Paris? For years, the French capital has attracted couples the world over looking to explore the stunning architecture and world-renowned landmarks. But when taking a knee in front of the Eiffel Tower just won’t cut it, consider one of our four adventurous ideas to give your proposal that je ne sais quoi.
Hot air balloon
Hold onto your hats and take flight in a hot air balloon. What better way to commit your futures to one another than by popping the question whilst enjoying an aerial view across the ‘City of Love’? Ballon de Paris Generali takes you to an altitude of 150m for a truly memorable experience.
It is worth noting that flights are totally weather dependent, so be sure to contact the site in advance of turning up to ensure you aren’t disappointed. This attraction can also get quite busy, so if you’re looking for a more intimate proposal, consider an alternative birds-eye view of the city.
Paris by helicopter
If proposing by the banks of the Seine is too clichéd for your liking, why not propose high above them? Taking a helicopter ride above the city is a sure-fire way to get your partner’s heart racing well before you’ve presented your hand-picked diamond ring and can make for a more private affair.
There are lots of companies who will offer an aerial tour of the city by helicopter, so make sure to do your research before your holiday. Once your feet are back on more stable ground, celebrate with a glass of champagne at one of the city’s most romantic bars.
For an adrenaline-fueled experience, you can head just outside the city’s border to Sherwood Parc. There are plenty of tree-top activities to explore across the park making it the perfect attraction for more daring couples. Finish your day at the park’s main attraction – a 260-metre zip-line through the trees. Ensure you are first to go on the zip-line, then wait at the bottom on one knee as your partner makes the stomach-turning descent.
For someone with a penchant for all things Disney, what better place to make a declaration of your love than at Disneyland Paris? There are plenty of magical spots within the park to choose from to ask the all-important question. Consider heading to an area dedicated to their favourite childhood story, or in front of the Sleeping Beauty Castle where, at the end of the day, fireworks, lights and songs will provide the perfect backdrop for your big moment.
Using information found via Instagram hashtags by Hitched, Disneyland Paris was deemed the most popular place to propose the world over, with 1 in 500 proposals taking place at the theme park. So whilst you won’t be the first person to reveal the ring in the popular attraction, it could make for the proposal your partner has always dreamed of.
Whatever your romantic proposal of choice is, we hope he or she says the magic word, ‘Yes!’
