Proposals have evolved in recent years to become more of a spectacle. Everyone will want to hear about how you and your fiancé got engaged and chances are that you want a great story to tell them. If you are looking for unique proposal ideas in New Jersey, we’ve got you covered. From secluded romantic spots to stunning overlooks, here are some of the best places for your wedding proposal in New Jersey.
Pier C of Waterfront Park in Jersey City
On the Jersey side of the river across from Manhattan, there are plenty of parks and piers that are perfect for proposing. Of those locations, Pier C is the best of the best. Located near the Hoboken PATH station with amazing skyline views, this spot has the best scenery in New Jersey for popping the big question.
A Dinner Cruise on Spirit of New Jersey
The Spirit of New Jersey dinner cruise is another unique proposal idea. Dine, drink and dance the night away before getting engaged. Leaving from Lincoln Harbor, this dinner cruise dazzles with scenic New York City views right from your dinner table. You can hop on the boat as a couple and leave as fiancés!
The Great Falls
For the adventure seekers in your life, doesn’t a nice hike before the proposal sound ideal? How about a hike to a 77-foot waterfall that will serve as the perfect backdrop for popping the big question? Well, The Great Falls can deliver both. Located 12 miles from New York City in Paterson, The Great Falls is actually one of the tallest waterfalls in the United States. This hidden gem has everything you need for a proposal she’ll never forget.
New Jersey Botanical Garden at Skylands
For those wanting a stunningly picturesque place to propose, the New Jersey Botanical Garden is a great place to propose any time of the year. Whether you visit when the garden is in full bloom or venture through the snow-covered paths, there are scenic spots to propose at almost every turn. Plus, there’s plenty of places for a photographer to hide if you want to capture the big ask on camera.
In the Clouds
If you want a proposal story that your fiancé will happily recount to all of her friends, consider proposing somewhere unique—like up in the clouds! There are two great ways to do this and the first is by taking a hot air balloon ride. Once you’re hovering high in the air you can either get down on one knee or plan ahead and ask the pilot to arrange the message “Will You Marry Me” on the ground for her to see. Another option is a helicopter tour. What’s more romantic than proposing as you cruise the Manhattan skyline, venture up the Hudson or hover near the Statue of Liberty? She’ll probably be so excited thinking the tour is the big gift and won’t even see the proposal coming.
