I, personally, love the idea of a proposal happening in Rome. It seems like such a romantic city. Best of luck to you!

I say London.

Then Rome can be a relaxed (belated) engagement celebration.

London around the holidays is such a magical place. Plus, it is already a special place for the two of you, so why not make it more special.

Which Gordon Ramsay restaurant are you going to? I took my Darling Husband to Petrus for his birthday and it was phenomenal.

I’ve never been to either so I have no actual advice, but are you sure you want to marry her? You can always ask me.. in either Rome or London with the Tiffany engagement ring. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Kidding! Best of luck!

Rome  sounds really romantic, but as a girl waiting for a ring myself, I’d rather get a propsal sooner since Rome doesnt hold any particular sentimental value

Darling Husband and I travelled from Vancouver-Sydney-Auckland wtith a few nights in each city; he’d planned to propose in Sydney on my birthday, but got nervous that either I would find the ring, or he’d lose the ring, so he proposed our first morning in Vancouver.  You don’t have to have a sentimental attachment to the place where you propose; you’ll create your own.  I’d say propose before your flight to London or upon landing, and unless your girl has already stated otherwise, I’d avoid proposing in the middle of a restaurant.  It’s really awkward to be the center of attention like that, especially a place that gets as big a crowd as any of the Ramsay restaurants; something a little more private may be more special in the long run.

Hmm..I think London at Xmas time would be cute (& sooner!!). I’d say go for it in London! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Then you can celebrate in Rome.

@jd188912:  I say London, mainly because you often go there…and she will least expect it. Then you two can enjoy Rome as a newly engaged couple

i agree with the others who say london is sooner and lovely in the winter.  why keep her waiting longer when Rome doesn’t have that sentimental factor?  

best wishes!

I think it is a lovely idea but I just want to give you a word of warning, London on NYE is absolutly mental. It is a struggle to get anywhere as public transport is so busy and millions of people are pushing to get to the fireworks. It will be hard to find a quiet spot to even get down on one knee without having people rushing past you (I can just imagine someone ending up on their backside whilst on one knee because some drunk Londoner has accidently knocked them over). 

However if you do want to propose on NYE it could still be completely romantic as there are so many beautiful squares and green spots in London. You could maybe walk her back after the fireworks to wherever you’re staying and find one en route (or google it beforehand). Most people do travel by public transport so above ground should be much calmer. You could also do it during the day instead and have the meal and fireworks as further celebration.

If you need some tips on good spots in London please feel welcome to ask! {#emotions_dlg.smile}

Ohh just saw you said you normally go to London for NY to celebrate. In which case ignore my comment because you will already know what it is like Smile
