Planning Your Trip
Check out these tips in planning that perfect proposal.
1. Set a budget.
One essential thing to consider in planning a perfect proposal is your budget and how much you are willing to spend. From booking flights and hotels, renting a car, and setting up that dinner, many things will depend on your budget. Once you have set your budget, you can decide on those things and plan your trip properly.
2. List what you want to do.
Before popping out that question, plan out activities that will lead to your proposal. Once you know what activities to do, you can plan out the schedule of your trip. Planning your activities will also help you figure out where to stay.
3. Book that trip.
After planning and choosing all the stuff above, it’s time to book that trip. Book your preferred flights and favorite hotel online, or opt for a vacation package that includes accommodation, transportation, and things to do.

Indeed, the City of Love is one of the most romantic and perfect places to propose. It does not come as a surprise with all the romantic vibes Paris gives to couples.

On top of that, Paris also offers tons of exquisite hotels such as Le Bristol Paris or the Four Seasons Hotel George V if you want an intimate proposal.
How romantic would it be to have your proposal aboard a gondola while being serenaded and drifting through the waters of this floating city?

The Best Places to Propose – Beach Destination
One of Hawaii’s eight islands will serve as romantic background for your proposal. With all its spectacular natural landscape, you can plan out some exciting activities like visiting Mauna Kea’s summit or having fun under the sun at Waikiki Beach.

Grand Canyon, Arizona
If adventure is what you seek, the Grand Canyon seems like the perfect spot for a proposal.
