Looking for a creative and memorable way to pop the question to your travel-loving significant other, without it being a cliché?
The world truly is your oyster when it comes to one-of-a-kind, unusual marriage proposals.
Destination proposals have become a bit of an industry, but there’s no better place to look for inspiration than beyond borders for exciting proposals, and to satisfy your travel bug at the same time, says Nicky Potgieter, Flight Centre Travel Group (FCTG) Leisure Marketing Leader.
“If you’re overwhelmed by the variety of romantic destinations and experiences the world offers, try speaking to a travel expert who’ll get to know you, and your future wife or husband to be, to suggest the right option for you. For true romantics, the proposal is as important as the honeymoon so it’s important to make the right choices.”
If you’re in search of some inspiration, Potgieter offered up Flight Centre’s five most exotic and unusual marriage proposals:
1. Wedding bells and worms
Forget starlit skies and opt for New Zealand’s Arachnocampa luminosa instead. As far as unusual marriage proposals go, this particular glow worm species sets the mood as you drift through the darkness of the mysterious Waitomo Caves preparing yourself to reveal your own glowing ring.
Besides enjoying these illuminous critters, New Zealand’s landscape forms a dramatic backdrop for couples to explore together with its untouched lakes, rivers, waterfalls, volcanic mountains, hot springs and massive glaciers.
