    Being myself a marriage proposal planner in Paris, I would say that proposing at the top of the Eiffel Tower is the biggest mistake possible for a Paris proposal! Overcrowded, windy, souvenir vendors everywhere, and tourists with screaming children. Don’t forget that when you visit the Eiffel Tower… you don’t see the Eiffel Tower! That seems obvious, but that’s a very important point.

    Anyway, Paris is really one of the most romantic city, romance is everywhere there. If you want to propose with the Eiffel Tower, I would suggest to use the tower as a perfect backdrop for the proposal, especially when the tower is sparkling. For example, you can propose in Cinderella’s carriage, while the carriage arrives, by night, at Eiffel Tower, just when the tower begins to sparkle. You can also propose during a dinner-cruise, with 1000 red roses falling from the sky while you enjoy some champagne! But many other creative ideas are available there…

    I really love those spots, but I have to say, Keukenhof is not in Amsterdam, it’s not even in the same provence. Being from The Netherlands myself, the Keukenhof is actually in Lisse, near The Hague.

    If you are going to propose in Paris check out a few more ideas than at the top of the Eiffel Tower. If you are lucky enough to get tickets it takes forever to get up to the top. Not that romantic really. Keep the Tower in the background.
