If you’re a couple who loves movies and popcorn on a Friday night, then a wedding proposal at the movie theater is only fitting. Your partner will never see a proposal coming. You can even rent a private cinema at My Cinema Greenbelt and watch your favorite movie together before you pop the question. You can invite your family and friends, or reserve a movie theater just for the two of you.

No matter what any movie says, Sagada is not just for the brokenhearted. It is definitely for the romantic as well. There are many attractions to visit such as Lumiang Cave, Echo Valley, the hanging coffins, and Bokong Falls. Why not go on a hike? When you reach the Kiltepan Viewpoint at sunrise, get down on one knee and ask her to marry you. With the breathtaking view of the mountains as your backdrop, she will find it impossible to say no.

The beautiful sunset at Manila Bay can serve as backdrop for the proposal you’re planning.

It is quite cinematic to pop the question while fish swim freely in the background. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can even put on a special diving helmet that lets you “walk” underwater and then ask her to marry you. If you love adrenaline, how about a proposal in the midst of a shark encounter? Manila Ocean Park is a unique venue for a one-of-a-kind wedding proposal.

6. Enchanted Kingdom

This is for the fun-loving couple who loves amusement parks. You can take a ride on the Ferris wheel and pop the question. Enchanted Kingdom also boasts an awesome fireworks display at night, so you can also opt to propose amidst a brilliantly lit night sky. Who can say no to that?

7. Batanes

Batanes is known for its rugged seascapes and spectacular landscapes. Head over to the white sand beaches on Sabtang Island and ask for her hand in marriage. You may also want to bike around the stunning island and stop at Basco Lighthouse to propose. The view and the ring are sure to take her breath away.

8. Bella Rocca

Bella Rocca is a stunning resort located in the heart-shaped island of Marinduque. It has white Santorini-inspired architecture, rolling terrains, and crystal clear waters. The resort in itself is luxurious, but the natural beauty of the island is priceless. This is a beautiful one-of-a-kind place for a proposal.

9. Siargao

Siargao is the “surfing capital of the Philippines.” But even if you’re not a surfer, you can enjoy the white beaches, lagoons, caves, and other natural attractions. If you are a surfer, then you already know where you have to go and what you have to do.

10. Baguio

With its cool weather and rows of pine trees, Baguio has an artsy, romantic vibe. There are lots of attractions to explore such as Burnham Park, Camp John Hay, and Session Road. High up in the mountains, you’ll really feel like you’re on top of the world when she says yes.
