You’re more than ready for it but your sweaty palms and turning stomach would just not cooperate. Proposing to the woman of your dreams like the way she deserves it may be a little tricky (Okay, maybe more than just a ‘little’), but we’re here to help you through it. We cannot hold a teleprompter for you in case you forget your lines, but we can surely suggest you some mesmerizing locations in the country to pop to question.
1. Hot Air Balloon Proposal in Lonavla
We all romanticize Hot Air Balloons. Movies like Casanova have set our romance expectations a little above in the skies. Taking your lady for a hot-air balloon ride over Lonavla hill station in Maharashtra, you can feel the flare of the legendary Lothario to set you both in the mood as you literally fly above all with your sweetheart. The plus point is that since the lady is stuck with you in your romantic ride for some time, there’s no evading the question.
2. In the open arms of the Himalayas
If you both are sworn adrenaline junkies then here’s something for you. Adventures sure get our hearts pumping and being with someone we love throughout is a total delight! The crisp air of the Himalayas and the aura of the snow clad mountains are far from the usual and utterly perfect to drop the M-bomb.
3. The Beachy Paradise Proposal
There’s something about the aura of Goa that has a whole new level of romantic appeal. The hippie vibes that the ambiance of Goa showers upon makes one let loose and live in the moment. The endearing beaches and the contrarily crazy nightlife strike a perfect balance of yin and yang. Let the aura be your advantage, rent a yacht if you wish to and enjoy the saccharine isolation. When the horizon changes its color to that of the roses, watch your lovely lady flush pink as you pop the question. Although its Goa not France but La Vie En Rose would be a perfect background track, isn’t it?
4. Kohima Camp, Nagaland
If surf and sand is not your perfect proposal scene, how about a wondrous encounter with nature’s lush greens? Kohima Camp in Nagaland comes fully decked to make your dreams come true. It’s not just an ordinary one just like your lady. It is furnished with luxury tents, a butler service and they also provide private moonlight dinners. Take your hint when the sky turns drearier and ask for her hand to turn your love into the bond of holy matrimony.
5. The Celestial Proposal at Thar
It’s hard to say no as you and your lady bask in the light of the stars and the unworldly Thar Desert envelopes you both in its charm and enigma. Unlike the smoggy city skylines, at Thar, the stars are visible in abundance like a bottled up galaxy. You’ll be a lot more courageous when the desert dunes and the magnificence of the stars witness your marriage proposal as they wrap you and your lover into becoming tranquility.
6. Grand Proposal at Rambagh Palace, Jaipur
If you desire to propose to the queen of your heart just like a real one, then one can never go wrong with Rambagh Palace in Jaipur. Regal suites situated in the midst of architectural flamboyance would add the right amount of grandiosity to your proposal. You can tour the palace grounds in a horse-drawn carriage like the Victorian times or opt for a vintage car as you watch your lover cheer with joy.
7. In the middle of Dal Lake
Bollywood actors break into a song over here for all the right reasons. Kashmir has earned the sobriquet of the jewel of India but this beauty is the jewel of Kashmir. The setting is ethereal and completely basked in romance. Take her for a Shikara ride and surprise her with a ring amidst the clear waters and furry clouds, you too can break into a song if you desire and the hysterical ‘yes’ would be quite a story for your grandkids.
8. The Scuba Diving Proposal in Andaman
If your girlfriend has the love for extraordinary experiences and the offbeat then she would totally love a proposal while scuba diving in the cerulean waters of Andaman. While you both discover the often unexplored kingdom that lies underwater amongst the multihued fishes and comely corals, express your desire by showing her a ring. You cannot ruin it by stammering and stuttering as you can only speak in signs and signals underwater. Win-Win!
9. Proposal in front of the greatest symbol of love –The Taj Mahal
The Taj Mahal breathes out the air of romance into Agra. If she’s a Bollywood Buff then she’ll totally be digging it. The majestic Taj Mahal proposal can never ever go out of fashion or even cliché. As you and your ladylove take a stroll to explore the marbled serenity in all its might, kneel down to ask her the question of a lifetime. You cannot build something as mighty as the Taj for her, but the greatest symbol of love to ever exist can surely set the tone for your proposal.
10. A proposal at Aman-I-Khas, Ranthambore National Park, Rajasthan
This is the same place where Katy Perry and Russell Brand tied the knot. This sumptuous wonder is a plush property that could be the first step for you both to start a new life together. Its canopied tents, lavish outdoor pool and custom made packages can make your proposal a perfect one. Pop a champagne bottle and perform the classic ‘ring in the champagne glass’ proposal if you think she’d like it and watch her swoon in front of your very eyes. One cannot simply say ‘no’ to such a regal setting.
