The 10 Best Places In Connecticut For An Epic Marriage Proposal
Did you know that 43% of proposals take place between November and January? That means that if you’re planning to pop the question in the near future, your proposal is already on track to be unique! But a truly magical proposal needs the perfect location (and also flowers). These high romance destinations will give you the perfect backdrop for a day of love and celebration.
1. Lighthouse Point Park, New Haven
This lighthouse is beautiful, and the land offers many scenic points. But the carousel venue there is gorgeous and perfect for photos.
2. Bartlett Arboretum & Gardens, Stamford
In Victorian England, being asked to take a turn about the garden was pretty flirtatious. Why not bring back that old school romance? With 90 acres to explore, you can definitely find a quiet spot to make your own.
3. Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford
Whether you opt to be outside or not, you really can't go wrong here. If your significant other digs art, architecture, intimacy, and quiet then this is a sure winner!
4. Interlaken Inn, Lakeville
All the glory of a beach proposal without the crowd or the sand in weird places. Book a room and turn your proposal into an all out weekend trip of pampering and relaxation.
5. Mohegan Park, Norwich
This place really livens up in the spring. When the grass is green and the flowers are blooming you can take a sunset stroll and dance under lamp light.
6. Beardsley Zoo, Bridgeport
Animal lovers will enjoy being proposed to with the exotic creatures nearby, but will also love the views you can catch on the grounds. Plus, future trips with future kids will be that much more special knowing this is where it all began.
7. Wood Acres Farm, Terryville
A popular venue for weddings, this spot is also great for proposals. Book a carriage ride around the grounds and wow your partner with some romantic words.
8. Wharf Restaurant, Madison
The view from this restaurant is stunning and since its attached to a hotel you could make this an extended romantic trip. Proposing at a restaurant also means non traditional proposals are possible. Have the ring in their champagne glass, or have a message written on their dessert.
9. Kent Falls, Kent
Who wouldn't want layered cascades behind them during a proposal? The sound of rushing water will also relieve the pressure of proposing in complete silence.
10. Mohawk Mountain, Cornwall
This is great for nature lovers who enjoy a good hike. Your partner will be so distracted by the thrill of the climb that they won't suspect a thing! The moment will be raw and the photos will be amazing.
