Believe it or not, where, and how you get engaged could give you some insight into what your future as a married couple would hold. Do you want to get engaged somewhere romantic, exciting or memorable that sets the tone for your new lives together?
Vancouver is a city full of beautiful beaches, romantic restaurants and breathtaking mountain tops so why not try one of these special spots to ask your special someone for their hand in marriage.
Queen Elizabeth Park – Cambie/29th Avenue
Why not treat yourselves to a meal at Season’s in the Park followed by a romantic walk through the gardens and pop the question while overlooking downtown Vancouver and the North Shore Mountains.
MacMillan Observatory – Vanier Park
What could be more romantic than gazing up at the stars through powerful telescopes together? The Observatory is open Friday and Saturday nights as long as it is clear outside.
Sandy Cove Beach – West Vancouver
This is a small and secluded beach below Marine drive. It’s great if you want to grab a blanket, picnic and a bottle of cheap wine and enjoy the sunset. Gazing into each other’s eyes is optional.
Vancouver Art Gallery – 750 Hornby Street
If you both love art than why not visit the latest exhibit at the Vancouver Art Gallery and propose in front of your favourite piece? There are also over 10,000 pieces of permanent art as well as a place to sit and enjoy a pre or post question cocktail.
Cypress Mountain – West Vancouver
About halfway up the mountain is a lookout that provides one of the best views of Vancouver and the Burrard Inlet you will ever see. Stop and take in the view while you build up your courage to pose the question.
Want to make it even more unique? Try thinking of a place that holds significance to both of you for this life changing question. It makes for a colourful story to tell for years to come and gives you a place to come back to on your anniversaries.
