Proposal Planner in Paris: your questions answered (FAQ)
You’re ready to pop the 4-word question and smartly decide to propose in Paris. Still, you’re not exactly sure how to pull off the perfect destination proposal from thousands of miles away. Or, perhaps you already have a few initial marriage proposal ideas but need a local helping hand to flush out the details and make your dream a reality.
Investing in an experienced marriage proposal planner in Paris will save you loads of time while ensuring the best possible experience for you and your partner. It should be reassuring that the heavy lifting will be done for you. All you need to do is show up and celebrate with your significant other.
It depends. Most proposal planners offer multiple packages based on popular service requests. One person may schedule a simple consultation, while others prefer full-service planning and “day-of” execution.
Expect to pay at least 750 euros or up to 15% of your budget for a top-notch proposal planner in Paris.
- Custom-made luxury proposals;
- Classic and proven proposal packages; and
- Marriage proposal idea and concept development.
Popular requests for proposal-related services include photography, video, floral design, suite surprise embellishment, musicians (violin, harpist, saxophone, or guitar), private dining for two, Champagne table with personalized macarons, vintage or luxury car …
As Paris’s premier proposal and wedding planner, we are local experts with unparalleled vendor connections and know-how. That means we can often pull off fabulous marriage proposals even on short notice. If you can imagine it, we can typically make it happen!
Ultimately, it depends on the scope of your wedding proposal in Paris. Some minimalists could theoretically get away with “just” hiring a photographer; that would run approximately 300 euros. We would, at a minimum, recommend adding a beautiful bouquet of long-stemmed red roses and chilled Champagne, which is relatively affordable.
But when you want to go beyond basic to create something beautiful where every detail feels personalized, you’ll have to invest accordingly.
Privatizing a hotel rooftop, adding sumptuous floral designs, a red carpet, master musicians, fireworks, and coordinating talented vendors comes at a cost.
And here’s where hiring an experienced proposal planner in Paris may be a fantastic idea. A seasoned planner will source everything you need at the best value possible. She’ll save you loads of time and potentially costly mistakes while carefully managing the proposal budget.
Our Parisian proposal idea and concept generation service starts at only 250 euros. This service is ideal for DIY folks or when you intend to get engaged abroad (but still want to tap into the Kiss Me in Paris experience).
Perhaps you already love one of the tried and true Paris proposal ideas, which start as low as 1,200 euros for the Marry Me Letters set-up.
Or maybe, you don’t want to waste hours on Instagram trying to figure out unique ideas and manage different vendors in a foreign country and across time zones. You want a marriage proposal concept created just for you. Everything should be taken care of … so all you need to do is show up and enjoy. Our custom proposal clients typically spend at least 5,000 euros.
Why hire Kiss Me in Paris as your proposal planner?
We developed a reputation for planning ridiculously glamorous, memorable, and creative surprise proposals. Kiss Me in Paris is known far and wide to obsess about details, so you don’t need to.
Our designs and proposal ideas are widely copied but never really duplicated. The reason? Well, it’s presumably a combination of factors; still, we’d like to think the explanation is simple: because we genuinely care about our clients’ experience.
The most memorable engagements consider your partner and the love story you share. Instead of simply dropping to your knee to pop the question, it’s about effort, chivalry, and creating a fun-filled day with multiple beautiful experiences. We simply love creating unique proposal concepts that are fun and within character for our couples.
We can help with anything from simple to extraordinary and anything in between. Our job is to listen, inspire, organize, and execute. All you need to do is show up and celebrate this profoundly life-changing moment with your sweetheart.

The most memorable Parisian proposals have a few things in common. They are about effort, chivalry, romance, creativity, and beautiful vulnerability.
It’s no longer about a singular moment (i.e., dropping to your knee to pop the question). Instead, consider creating a fun-filled day with many mini-experiences that collectively result in a dream engagement your partner will cherish forever.
In the 4 videos below—planned by marriage proposal planner, Chantelle-Marie—you’ll get to see the following:
- A private hotel rooftop engagement with an unbelievable concept;

Marriage proposals in Paris: people also ask (FAQ)
Paris is custom-made for lovers. Cruise along the Seine River at night, steal a kiss under the sparkling Eiffel Tower, stroll the verdant Tuileries Garden, and get lost in the winding cobblestone streets of Montmartre.
We may be a tad biased, but Paris is the best place we know to get engaged. Expect fantastic indoor and outdoor proposal locations, Michelin-star restaurants, uber-chic Palace hotels, and experienced English-speaking vendors.
Suppose it’s just about getting engaged in Paris. In that case, you only need a date, location, diamond ring, and perhaps a local photographer to document the moment for you.
However, since you’re reading this page, chances are you’re thinking of creating something utterly special for your loved one. You want to surprise your partner with a fun-filled day with many beautiful mini-experiences that crescendo into an unforgettable marriage proposal.
In that case, it’s about chivalry, effort, and forethought as you personalize a unique Paris proposal concept that delights your sweetie’s five senses and is personally meaningful.
You may want to consider a palace hotel rooftop, Seine River yacht, French chateau, or another private spot where you control every element. It is also a fantastic idea to embellish the actual proposal setting with sumptuous flowers, candles, personal details, fireworks fountains, and much more. Add a master musician to play your soulmate’s favorite song.
Of course, you’ll want to capture this extraordinary moment with professional Paris photography and video. There is much more you can do, but you get the point.
The way we understand cliche is that it’s something that has lost its appeal due to overuse. The truth is that Paris is and will always be special. No other place on the planet even comes close.
Sure, the City of Love is not for everyone and does not even pretend to be. Still, thanks to its iconic locations to propose, uber-romantic hotels and restaurants, and experienced English-speaking vendors, it’s hard to conceive of a better choice.
According to The Knot, 33% of marriage proposals take place on a planned vacation getaway.
We continue to see a steady rise in Parisian proposals and feel well-positioned to comment on the current trends.
- Most requests are for outdoor proposals—whether in public or private spots.
- Proposal settings with Eiffel Tower views are clearly ultra-popular. Still, we’re seeing increased demand for unique locations that ‘say’ Paris, such as quiet gardens, distinctive bridges, Seine River yachts, and fabulous French castles, …
- Personalized and creative proposals ideas, such as scavenger hunts that keep your partner guessing, are hot. The cookie cutter approach is out.
- People spend more money on their engagements, including renting luxury venues, private dining for two, master musicians, sumptuous flowers, a vintage Rolls-Royce, …
There are no rules that say you cannot propose on the capital’s most treasured landmark: the Eiffel Tower.
However, it’s undoubtedly not recommended since many curious bystanders will surround you. Getting engaged on a wrought-iron tower in plain public view does not even sound romantic. There’s no real chance for personalization (unless you are Tom Cruise, perhaps), so forget about impressive photos.
The entire idea of an Eiffel Tower proposal is to actually see the iconic 324 meters-tall Iron Lady in your pictures, right?
We suggest exploring the monument with your fiancée after she says “yes” and capturing some fun selfies 108 stories off the ground.
Paris is blessed with the most beautiful and romantic publicly accessible places to propose:
- luscious parks (Luxembourg Gardens, Tuileries Garden, and Parc Monceau);
- gorgeous squares (Place des Vosges, Place Dauphine);
- iconic locations around the Eiffel Tower (Trocadero, Champs de Mars, and Avenue de Camoëns)
- distinctive bridges (Bir-Hakim, Pont des Arts, and Alexander III); and
- off-the-beaten-path spots (Wall of Love, Montmartre, Shakespeare Library, …).
Alternatively, invest in a private proposal location, such as a commercial or residential rooftop, palace hotel terrace, historic salon, private yacht, or drop-dead gorgeous French chateau.
This is a loaded question. It depends on your proposal budget, the complexity of your concept and design, the number of moving parts and Parisian vendors, and a host of other factors. We recommend you schedule a short complimentary consultation to see where you stand and whether investing in a Paris proposal planner makes sense.
Presumably, the intent of this question is similar to, “where do you propose in Paris in cold weather?”
It’s possible to propose year-round in the same public Parisian locations. Sure, it can get nippy and occasionally freezing during the cool season, which spans from mid-November through early March.
Then again, cold temperatures may keep unwanted crowds at bay and are not a massive obstacle to pulling off a memorable marriage proposal. Heavy rainfall, however, is a challenge—notably for musicians with string instruments and visual artists (photographers and filmmakers).
Private Parisian hotel rooftops and terraces are not necessarily open year-round. Nonetheless, when you book a suite with a private balcony, it is typically straightforward to request a patio heater. Plus, since you are defacto privatizing the space, you have better timeline flexibility to wait out brief rain showers.
In summary, when it’s cold outside, or it rains, private locations offer greater flexibility than their public counterparts. Our favorite hotels for Paris proposals include the Peninsula Paris, Shangri-La, Marignan, and the Four Seasons Gorge V.
We accept all major credit cards, PayPal, Venmo and bank transfer. When you elect to pay the balance of package in cash, it is due on the day of your proposal.
Booking with us is fast, simple, and secure.
There are no hard rules and it depends on your personality, style, and budget. With that said, people often think a marriage proposal must be over the top to be memorable. We find that it needs to be well-thought-out, display chivalry and effort, and consider your partner first.
For example, does your sweetheart like the outdoors and is passionate about all things French? Then how about a dreamy picnic—complete with baguette, cheese, and chilled Champagne—in a finely manicured Parisian garden?
Suppose you find it challenging to come up with creative proposal ideas. In that case, we have almost limitless concepts just waiting for you.
But first, we must understand your love story. Only then can we present ideas that feel natural and make you and your families proud.
We understand that life can sometimes get in the way … Paris is a busy city, and you’re on vacation.
That said, there can be many moving parts to a proposal, and arriving late could affect multiple elements. Not being on time is almost not an option when you intend to propose in a public spot. Also, remember that vendors may already have other commitments after your scheduled proposal.
So, try to be on time, and let us know as soon as possible if you are experiencing any delay.
It’s sometimes just impossible to keep your appointment despite the best intentions.
We’ve seen it all, from airport disruptions and canceled flights to visa issues, strikes, health, broken relationships, job conflicts, and many other challenges.
That said, much of the effort is rendered well ahead of the proposal when it comes to proposal planning. Detailed plans are made, venues are secured, and vendors are booked. Therefore your initial retainer is strictly non-refundable.
We are happy to work with you to find an alternative date. Just note that rescheduling will depend on the availability of places and people.
We know Paris, and we know proposals! We have been collaborating on Paris proposals since 2013 as photographers, videographers, and planners.
What makes us stand out is our overall approach to bringing your proposal to life…
- We focus on creating personalized marriage proposals. For a proposal to be most memorable, it must be thoughtful. It has to include a piece of you, a piece of your partner, and a piece of your love story.
- We create an experience. The proposal doesn’t start when you get down on one knee and ends with Yes. Rather, it’s a tease, a dance,… little surprises that build on each other, taking you to the big moment but still continuing after. What happens before your proposal and afterward is just as important as the proposal to keep the romantic energy elevated. We want your partner to say, “This was the best day/evening of my life.”
- We create a beautiful setting focused on delighting the senses. We pay meticulous attention to detail. For us, the presentation has to be deliciously luxurious. Perfection! It is one of the most important days of your life, after all.
- We are your partner in every way. You have access to all the knowledge and experience we have accumulated over the years. This means you have an expert on the ground who is trustworthy and reliable and who you can turn to with any questions. Priceless.
It depends on the proposal’s scope, the number of vendors, and other factors. The more elaborate and the more moving parts, the sooner you should start planning.
Also, consider the time of the year. The best places and people book out quickly during the peak season (spring, summer, and Christmas through New Year).
We recommend hiring your Paris proposal planner as soon as possible. Still, it should be music to your ears that we have the Rolodex and experience to pull off awe-inspiring engagements on short notice.
Hmmm… let’s check in with a former girlfriend … now, “fiancée.”
“Unimaginable is the word I would use to summarize my proposal in Paris. Every detail was so well thought-out and personalized. Yet, the grandeur was not lost in any way. I felt like royalty and am so excited to marry this incredible man. Yes, unimaginable, because I could not have conceived or even asked for a more romantic and thoughtful proposal. Kiss Me in Paris made it possible for me to say “yes” in the beautiful city of Paris to the love of my life in the most memorable way. I will forever be grateful to Kiss Me in Paris for creating this memorable experience.”
Your partner will be just over the moon that you took the time to get the professional help you needed to plan an incredible proposal.
In Paris, anything can happen. The weather tends to be unpredictable. Hey, you cannot trust the forecast. In other words, do not worry about unreliable predictions unless they’ve been updated within 6-8 hours from the scheduled starting time of your proposal.
We keep an eye on weather conditions for you. We analyze the situation and recommend going ahead with the proposal or rescheduling for an earlier or later time.
If we absolutely need to reschedule, we will communicate with all the vendors in real-time. That is another benefit of working with an influential and well-connected Paris proposal planner.

Our 9-step process to acing your Paris engagement
One of the first decisions you'll make is where to propose. It helps to differentiate between private and publicly accessible proposal locations. How about a beautiful French chateau, idyllic park, exclusive rooftop with an Eiffel Tower view, or a quintessential Parisian ballroom?
How do you plan on popping the question? Chances are, your partner expects a marriage proposal that's unique, creative, and personal. She will also likely want to be surprised. Your choices are endless: propose over a romantic dinner, conceive a fun scavenger hunt to keep her guessing, create a proposal movie to display in a private cinema, flash mob,... Really personal proposals are priceless!Nov 09, 2017
When you plan a trip to one of the most romantic cities known to humankind, your partner may suspect something. Throw her off with a believable decoy story. Even if she knows the proposal is coming sometime during your trip to Europe, the moment itself must remain a surprise.
Today, adding a few rose petals and candles to your proposal setting will rarely elicit the WOW Factor. Instead, it's about innovative concepts, like Marry Me letters, Parisian picnics, proposing in a Chanel or Tiffany store, winter wonderland, and Bollywood,...
Clearly, you'll want a photographer and videographer to capture the moment. But there's more: consider a violinist in period French costume, a saxophonist, perhaps a quartet in all-white. How about a magician, a beret-wearing mime, dancers, or street artists? It takes a village ... right? We can help put together the perfect English-speaking vendor team for you.
Professionally capturing the proposal moment is obligatory. Suppose photos or videos are less critical for you. Even then, they may mean a lot to your partner and family. And then go one giant leap further: we recommend adding a fabulous couple photoshoot for the next day. Chances are you will anyway need to get engagement-style photos down the line. Why not do so while the emotions are at an all-time high, in a magnificent city, and with a photographer (videographer) you know and trust?
Know the do's and don't of the perfect marriage proposal. Look your partner in the eyes, know which knee to propose on, and which hand and finger to put the ring on. Speaking of which ... Don't forget the ring! You can find loads of additional Paris proposal tips here.
There's no wrong time of the day to pop a delicious, chilled Champagne in Paris. It's your first toast as fiancés, and a masterful Champagne pop makes for fantastic save-the-date photos! We can organize pretty much any Champagne for you. Just ask and we will add fabulous crystal flutes and macarons.
A marriage proposal should never feel like a one-and-done transaction. Instead, think of your engagement as a series of mini-experiences. Have something special planned for after your partner says "yes," to keep the uniquely precious emotions high. A lovely Seine River cruise, a romantic dinner with a private butler, a helicopter ride over Paris, a lovely picnic, and surprise decoration of your hotel suite.
