It goes without saying that France brings to mind a certain air of romance. Planning to pop the big question? Here are some ideas on where to propose in Paris to conjure up some of your own Paris romance.
Eiffel Tower – This is one of the most popular places to get engaged in Paris. You can ask your love for her hand in marriage at the top of the tower as you take in the beautiful view of Paris. Try a sunset proposal for the perfect setting or why not have a picnic with a glass of champagne as you pop the question in the Champ de Mars with a view of the tower. Or Trocadéro Square that has a delightful and enchanting view of the Eiffel Tower. Sunrise would allow the most privacy and if you decide to enjoy a sunset stroll there are some secluded locations below the square where you can be alone.
Pont des Arts – The pedestrian bridge that crosses the Seine River will give you a beautiful view of the tower. Wait in the evening for the twinkling lights of the tower on the hour or to avoid the crowds take an early morning walk for the sunrise.
