Where to Propose in Paris, the City of Love

Ah, Paris. It’s the city of love where every woman fantasizes finding her long lost soulmate and where every couple finds themselves envisioning a future of euphoric happiness. This destination has won countless hearts, and for those who plan on winning their significant other’s heart permanently, it is the perfect destination to propose. In a city filled with this much love, however, deciding where to propose in Paris can seem daunting. Luckily, we’ve narrowed down the city into one simple list, so you can find the absolute perfect spot to pop the question.

Where to Propose in Paris, the City of Love

Eiffel Tower

While the Eiffel Tower isn’t the most unique spot to propose to your loved one; there is something magically classic about such a timeless destination. With such a monumental attraction, it is hard to resist the beautiful history and love that fills Paris. This is a great place to propose at night, as you can see the entire city filled with twinkling lights.

Lover’s Wall

Love is meant to be shared and treasured, not stored and neglected, which is why Le mur des je t’aime, AKA Lover’s Wall, is such a romantic site to see. The 40-square-meter wall is filled with the words “I love you” in more than 300 languages. If you are looking for a way to tell your other half your true feelings, this is the place to do it. There is no other place in the world where you can tell them how much you care in so many ways.

Jardin du Luxembourg

The Luxembourg Gardens is one of the most beautiful spots in all of Paris. This hidden treasure is filled with fountains, architecturally striking monuments, and eye opening scenery filled with orchards and gardens. Jardin du Luxembourg is commonly known for its breathtaking beauty; but the flowers are nearly impossible to acknowledge with the sight of a proposal with a petunia engagement ring; that blossoms with a gesture more eloquent than the onset of spring.

A rooftop terrace

If your love’s weakness is an amazing view, then look no further than the skyline. Paris has dozens of beautiful rooftop terraces to choose from. One of the most intimate rooftops is Le Perchoir du Marais; a rooftop restaurant and bar that is as cozy and intimate as it is beautiful. Every inch you see from the rooftop looks customized to fit the city perfectly, almost appearing as the perfect compliment to the halo diamond ring you set to place upon your loved one.

Opera Garnier

The only thing more grand than the staircase at one of France’s most famous opera houses is the most romantic of gestures in front of its historic entrance. The magic of Opera Garnier is encompassed in the walls; as thousands of ballets and shows have been performed at the site since the 1800s. If you are looking for a once in a lifetime experience to precede your once in a lifetime moment; this is the place to go.

With the perfect person, the perfect ring, and the perfect setting, the proposal site you choose will dim in comparison to the sight of your soulmate as you get on one knee in the City of Love.

    Surprise proposals in Paris

    Paris is still the destination number one to propose, but as a marriage proposal planner in Paris, I have only one advice: please avoid a “cliche” proposal, don’t be “a tourist” when you pop the question in the city of love. There a really many ideas and many locations to set up a proposal really creative, elegant and memorable. Almost everyone wants to propose at the Eiffel Tower: don’t do that, the Eiffel Tower is far more useful and beautiful when used as a perfect backdrop, especially when the tower is sparkling by night! Another secret suggestion: you can visit the Roseraie de Bagatelle. A park absolutelly magical…
