I heard that my friend and fellow Vingler, @Allischaaff was at a wedding last weekend. I haven't seen pictures yet, but I heard it was gorgeous. The venue was a mansion, no less! So, until I see these stunning pictures, as she kept gushing over, I thought I'd share a card on the best places to propose in Paris! @Allischaaff lived in France for a bit, so I am curious to know what OTHER fantastic places there are in Paris that I missed from my list!
Have you been to Paris? Do you know of a cool Parisian location to say "Yes"? Let me know in the comments! I am not including the Eiffel Tower in this list because it's predictable. Proposing there is 'what you're supposed to do." Well, let's see if you can propose a little better than that!
JARDIN DU PALAIS ROYAL
Magnolia trees blooming in the Spring and English roses in the Summer...what could be more idyllic than a proposal in a secret garden at a royal palace?!
PLACE DU TROCADÉRO
If you're going for epic and romantic, all at once, you're going to need to set your alarm! Get up EARLY to capture one of the most heart-stopping moments ever! Between the view and the proposal, it's going to be hard to top this ever again!
PONT ALEXANDRE III
Looking for luxe? Head to one of the most elaborately designed bridges in Paris. Proposing at sunset in this spot will cast golden shadows with views that refuse to disappoint.
SQUARE JEAN XXIII
Steps from the Notre Dame Cathedral, Square Jean XXII is old-world charm to the nth degree. If your timing is PERFECT, you can catch the cherry blossoms in Spring. But you'll have to be extra precise in your timing to avoid the crowds during that time.
SHAKESPEARE & COMPANY BOOKSHOP
Got an itch to write your own romantic comedy? This independent bookshop on Paris’s Left Bank (where writers such as Hemingway and his friends once gathered) is numero uno for one of the most thoughtful and inspired places to pop the question!
FONTAINE MEDICIS, JARDIN DU LUXEMBOURG
Resplendent with gardens, orchards, fountains, statuary, and more, this exceedingly French locale is most ideal for any season as there's always something in bloom. It's also not nearly as crowded as other French destinations.
PARC DE SCEAUX
Located just outside of Paris, Parc de Sceaux is not to be missed! With some of the most dramatic and tiered expanse and gardens, this place is a jaw-dropper! The only thing better than this place would be the proposal!
What other places did I leave out of this list that would have been perfect for proposing? Leave your comments below!
