Popping the “will you marry me?” question is probably the most nerve-wracking moment in your life. After all, unless you can see into the future, you do not know where this question will lead. Will it be a good life for the both of you? Will you be happy together? There are so many factors to consider that when you do pop the question, all those factors fly out from your mind as you await the answer.
If you’re lucky enough to be loved by the person you are proposing to, then you’ll hear the sweetest yes. But before that, you also have to worry about where you are going to pop that question. In Sydney, there are far too many places that can be the perfect spot for a proposal that it became hard to pick just one.
First, you need to ask yourself if you want to propose in a place that’s memorable to both of you. Is that too cliché? The café where you met? The Church that you attend every Sunday? What is this specific place that reminds you of this person every time you think of it? If that is not the place where you want to pop the question, lucky you because there are so many other places in Sydney that are the perfect backdrop for the “will you be my wife/husband/partner?” question.
You do know by now that Australia is lined with a wonderful golden coastline, right? So, in case you want to wow the person you are proposing to, why not book a private beach? You can hire a luxury boat and bring a picnic basket complete with antipasto and sparkling wine or champagne. You can hire someone to set up the beach with chairs, tables, flowers, balloons, and twinkling lights. It’s the most romantic way to propose in Sydney.
Do you know that you can climb the Harbour Bridge in private? Plenty of celebrities have done that. There’s someone to guide you, of course. You can ask for help from the guide on which area is the best for a proposal. Of course, ask the guide to take videos and photos, too. You’ll completely surprise your better half when you pop the question as you climb the bridge. Put yourself in his/her shoes. Wouldn’t you be surprised if someone asks you a life-changing question while climbing a bridge?
There’s a secluded garden overlooking Palm Beach. You can get married there, or rent it for a proposal. The garden overlooks the entire beach, so it’s safe to say that it’s one of the most stunning spots to pop the question. It’s a local gem so it’s easy to find. A simple Google search will lead you to The Bible Garden, which you’d wish to be deserted once you decide to propose there.
Stunning villas, nature, and a personal chef… what more can you ask for? That’s the treatment you and your future spouse will get when you decide to propose in a hotel at the Blue Mountains. Most of the hotels here are surrounded by nature, of course. You can book a short trek to the mountains if that’s a thing that you both love. Either way, with such stunning views from your hotel window, you won’t even have to leave your hotel room.
It’s hard to see Bondi Beach without tourists but if you’re lucky enough to only have a few people surrounding you, then take the chance and ask the question. Bondi Beach at sunrise is amazing. It’s also the perfect time to propose since only a handful of people will be there to see you. And if you do get cold feet, you can just treat it as a casual date and head over to a diner after walking on the beach.
This little spot is not as packed as other areas in the harbour, so it’s a safe bet for a proposal. The best thing about Observatory Hill is how quiet it can be at the right time. The view enough will clear your head. It’s going to make you look back at this time in your life and remember how clear-headed you were for wanting to marry the person next to you. For celebratory drinks, you can stop at one of the Rocks pubs.
There’s no shortage of perfect sports for a proposal. In fact, most of the time, it doesn’t really matter where you ask the question. It can be while you’re watching Netflix on the couch. It can be while you’re preparing dinner in the kitchen. But if you want to make a bit of an effort, the spots in Sydney mentioned above are the perfect places for a proposal.
