Marriage proposal in Sydney

Hi guys,

Any good suggestions on how to pop the question in Sydney.

I was thinking of chartering a yacht out to the harbor.

What are the places and ideas in sydney which wd be most appropriate.

Buy some champagne and caviar and take her for an evening picnic to Mrs Macquaries Chair at sunset.

You don't want to take the risk that she may get seasick on a yacht 😊

Top of the arch on a bridge climb - though I'd wait to get back on the ground before producing the ring - you would not want it dropped up there

Very nice suggestions by Eva and themoore, I'd say yes!

I'm going suggest the lookout at North Head at dusk.

Another suggestion depending on your budget is to catch a seaplane from Rose Bay to Palm Beach & have lunch at Jonah's. ( very romantic)

Limo to Camp Cove, stand by, pop the question and when she says YES then have the limo take you to the Icebergs at Bondi Beach. Terzini's italian restaurant will round out a great day.(should book first of course)

Or....Pop the question on the verandah at Catalina's restaurant at Rose Bay and then settle in for a lunch.

Both options wont miss!

re the Harbour Bridge Walk and ring..our son proposed to his now wife on the Harbour Bridge and they have a special way of passing the ring so it doesn't drop. If she is not scared of heights this would be memorable esp if its a nice day. But you need to organise it with the Harbour Bridge Walk tour beforehand just google Sydney Harbour Bridge walk also the seaplane & Jonahs sounds great too but both depend on really nice weather to get full appreciation of scenery etc,.

I am just gonna throw a crazy idea...

Bring her to Oceanworld Manly and excuse yourself to the bathroom.

Then you do the Shark dive thingy:


Then you propose from inside the tank while she is waiting for you outside...

Good luck to you!

Just remember if you set the bar high on the wedding proposal it can only get more expensive from there!!! :)

It isn't about the proposal or the ceremony.

it's about living/loving together for a very long time.

Each time you try to one up you set the bar higher...

it isn;t about the most spectacular location..it is about the most genuine
