As a mega-fan of romantic movies and love stories, I’ve always loved writing about the most romantic places and destinations. For me, even before I got engaged, NYC was always top of the list. Then, when my boyfriend popped the question there, it cemented it’s place at the top of my ‘loved-up locations list’.
For me, there’s nowhere more romantic than New York. NYC has always been my favourite place – the whole city feels like a movie set and it feels like anything can happen at any moment. That mindset, is romantic in itself. The feeling of never ending possibilities.
When my other half proposed in NYC, that’s exactly what it felt like, a movie. It actually took me a minute to reply to him, because I was so overwhelmed by how perfect the moment was. I know a proposal would’ve been amazing anywhere – but NYC is the city where all my favourite love stories happened, so it was the perfect place for my love story to happen too
Anyway, it turns I’m not the only one who is dreamy-eyed for NYC. A recent data round up from Instagram by Ingle and Rhode shows that NYC is the most ‘instagrammable proposal destination’ in the world. I’m not surprised, I lived it and loved it, and I can confirm – it totally deserves the number one spot.
But where else is on the list?
Well, here’s the rest of the round-up…
1.New York,United States
2.Los Angeles, United States
8.San Diego,United States
12.San Francisco,United States
13.Las Vegas,United States
17.Dubai,United Arab Emirates
There are some really surprising entries on the list –
I love that Honolulu managed to get into the top 20 (maybe there are some seriously romantic LOST fans out there!?) and I love that un-conventional city Las Vegas has made it into the top 20 too. I love Las Vegas, and I’ve always found it to be a surprisingly romantic destination, so it’s nice to know my feelings are shared by others too.
Of course, it’s no surprise to see cities like Dubai and London on the list, I’ve lived in both of these cities and I know just how beautiful and romantic they can be.
If you had to pick a city on the list to get engaged, which would you choose?
We got engaged in Sydney and it was perfect 🙂
Well I was married once before and it was not that picture perfect romantic engagement that everybody dreams of. If I did it all again and picked from one of these places I would be really happy with Miami. I have spent some time there over the past couple of years and think it is absolutely beautiful there on the beach so I would pick that one. I am from Chicago and I personally would not pick to have it done here if I had all of these different options but under certain circumstances I could see why some people might find it exciting.
I love this list! London is one of my favorite cities of all time so I’d probably choose that if I had the option! I was proposed to in Berlin though, which is by far not the most romantic city ever, but it is also where I met my husband so it was special in its own way. Great list though! Dubai would probably also be totally awesome!
You got engaged in NYC? That’s awesome. Mine wasn’t on the iist — Charleston, SC — but it was pretty amazing. Out of the list, I think San Francisco might be my fave.
