25 Romantic Places To Ask Someone To Marry You

“Will you marry me”. Probably one of the scariest phrases ever uttered by an individual. It’s a combination of words that carry with it the potential of a complete and devastating rejection, or the blissful agreement of an enduring union. So much goes into this phrase: buying a ring, getting parents agreement, arranging flash choreography (if you’re into big productions); but probably one of the most important details to this potentially magical moment is location. Not only does well planned and romantic environments help set the mood for a positive outcome, but it also makes this nerve wracking moment a little bit more bearable (and arguably more memorable). If you think about it, what does every lover wants his or her proposal to be? Romantic (which will hopefully result in a “Yes”)! Few things can help make this moment more romantic than location. So, from a glowing beach in the Maldives to a spectacular flower garden in the Netherlands, we bring you 25 Romantic Places To Ask Someone To Marry You.
