The memory of where and how a marriage proposal takes place is a story that will be retold time and again, so it's worth putting in some effort to select a special setting to make it as memorable as possible, said Wego chief marketing officer Joachim Holte in the travel search website's latest press release on Feb. 11.
If you agree with Holte, you may want to consider planning a proposal overseas. "It's not as difficult as you might think," said Holte. "You'd be surprised at how flexible and helpful a hotel, venue, tourist attraction, even an airport will be, should you approach them with the idea."
If you both love traveling and have both unlimited time and an unlimited budget, these five options, selected by Wego, may give you an idea or two about romantically popping the big question in style.
Heart Reef, Australia
Heart Reef, in the Great Barrier Reef of the Whitsundays in Queensland, Australia, is a stunning composition of coral that has naturally formed into the shape of a heart. It's extremely
popular with local and international travelers and has been the site of many proposals and declarations of love over the years.
If you're planning on making the ultimate romantic gesture, take a small plane or helicopter and let your pilot know your plans and they'll be able to help you with some extra flight time over the famous icon.
Macau Tower, Macau
Forget Las Vegas, head to Asia's gaming and entertainment capital in Macau, just an hour from Hong Kong by ferry, and take a Skywalk around the outside of Macau Tower.
Have the team from AJ Hackett, which runs the walk and bungee jump, to hold up a big "Marry Me" sign from inside as you take in the views from 233 meters above the city.
Aquaria in KLCC, Malaysia
If you love the water, go to Kuala Lumpur's Aquaria at the KLCC. This impressive aquarium offers several proposal packages.
Have a diver hold a "Marry Me" sign from inside the tank among the dazzling fish or dive in and do it yourself while you both take a dive with sharks.
Taj Mahal, India
Built in the name of love, the splendor of the Taj Mahal in Agra, India, epitomizes romance.
But for something a little more dramatic, check into one of the historic palaces, now converted into a luxury hotel. Try the stunning Oberoi Rajvilias in Jaipur or the Taj Lake Palace for a truly elegant and unforgettable proposal filled with atmosphere.
Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Channel the romance of Arabian nights and venture on a desert camel safari from Dubai with Platinum Heritage Tours.
Pop the question by the glimmer of a soft antique lamp while your personal butler serves you a freshly cooked meal, prepared on site.
