The 10 Most Popular Places To Propose, According To Instagram

Can you guess what landmark took the No. 1 spot?

Picking the perfect place to pop the question is no simple feat. From the Metropolitan Museum of Art, to a virtual reality experience center, to the stage of a ballet performance, we've seen people choose all kinds of unique locations to ask their significant other to spend forever with them. 

But there's also something to be said for classic locations. Asking someone to marry you can be a big, nerve-racking step. So, picking an iconic location with a landmark as your backdrop can be an excellent choice. 


The team over at the wedding planning website were interested in finding out the 10 most popular landmarks in the world to propose. They analyzed 10,000 hashtags on Instagram, such as #bridetobe and #engaged, to find out the answer.

"You might have expected to see the likes of Big Ben, The Empire State Building and The Coca-Cola London Eye in the top 10 list, but it was Disney parks that stole the show and came out as some of the most popular places to propose at around the world."
