How to Plan the Perfect Marriage Proposal

Many people dream of asking their partners to marry them in front of all their friends and family. But what if you could do more than that? What if you could create the most romantic marriage proposal ever, in front of all your friends and family, set against the stunning backdrop of Barcelona? If you’re thinking about planning such an event yourself, this article will show you everything you need to know about planning the perfect marriage proposal.

Pre-Proposal Planning

Whether you’re nervous or excited, there are a few things you should do ahead of time. First, make sure you can book your desired location and timeslot; in Barcelona, you’ll want to be creative as Montjuic and other spots in Barcelona can get quite busy during sunset.

Proposal Day

Whether you’re getting down on one knee or going all out with a lavish, elaborate proposal, picking a date and location is a big part of any successful marriage proposal. When it comes to planning your perfect proposal day, Barcelona is sure to have plenty of romantic backdrops (and tasty tapas). If you really want to take your soon-to-be fiancée’s breath away, book an appointment at Montjuic Castle.


Post-proposal, you’ll need photos for your (hopefully) new fiancée. Montjuic is a stunning place for a romantic photoshoot, especially with all of its monuments and architecture. Although it can be quite busy here in season, there are usually some quieter spots you can use – just check in advance what times and days will be most attractive for photo shoots at different sites. Here are four ideas for where to take photos at Montjuic
