Your proposal story is one that will be told for years to come so no pressure, but you have to get it perfect. And while Brisbane might not be Paris or Venice, our city is still full of beautiful spots that will be the perfect setting for your happily ever after.

It all started with a first date - and if those pre-proposal nerves are reminding you of the beginning of your relationship, channel it! Return to the scene of the crime and make a reservation at the restaurant or cinema that you went to for your first date.
For something simple, romantic, and easily customisable, try a picnic. WeekendNotes has dozens of suggestions for spots to suit all interests. Once you've chosen your spot, place an order with a picnic purveyor or make your own. Can't choose? Why not let someone else decide everything with a mystery picnic?
If you love them, shout it from the rooftops - or the top of the Story Bridge. Surprise them with a ring while they're enjoying a 360-degree view of Brisbane. Tours run day and night and start at approximately $70 per person.
We might not be able to fly overseas just yet, but if you can't go to Italy, Italy will have to come to you. Try an Italian proposal with Bribie Island Gondolas, a romantic experience providing beautiful views, food, and privacy.
If you're still stuck, you can't go wrong with water and sunset. Kangaroo Point, South Bank, Manly and Redcliffe is a small selection of prime waterfront areas. Take them there in the afternoon and bend the knee in the orange glow of sunset.
Or wait a few more hours for a night-time proposal complete with mood lighting. The fairy-lit figs of South Bank, Botanic Gardens and QUT offer a truly magical backdrop for the most important question of your life.
