Promise eternal love on the Pont des Arts
To create the wow effect right away, let's start with a great classic: the Pont des Arts. Okay, your sweetheart will not be the first to receive promises of eternal love in front of this famous railing, but the view of the Seine and the monuments of Paris are incredible. All the love flowing through for years on this bridge is bound to bring good luck. Equally romantic is any other spot spanning the river, in particular, the Pont Alexandre III and the Pont Neuf, or, for a more intimate setting, the Canal Saint-Martin.

Feel the passion at the Musée de la Vie Romantique
History is full of love, from its complications to happily ever after. If you are the passionate kind, head to the Musée de la Vie Romantique in the 9th arrondissement of Paris to see the torment of 19th-century artists who did not do things by half when declaring their love. Ponder the dramatic travails afterwards in the lovely hotel garden and sip a love potion.
Offer bunches of seasonal flowers
Forget about roses in winter and flow with the seasons. In February, offer your lover hellebores (which even grow in the snow) or a big bunch of mimosas, which perfumes and brighten the greyest days. Besides the poetry of winter blooms, choosing local, in-season blossoms is ecologically good. And luckily, all sorts of bouquets are available from a myriad of Parisian florists!
Reach new heights opposite the Eiffel Tower
Hit the heights (exactly 140 meters/459 feet) and treat yourself and your love to one of the most beautiful sights of Paris at Windo SkyBar, in the Hyatt Regency Porte Maillot hotel. Etch this moment with your partner forever in your memory: it’s what dreams are truly made of. The Eiffel Tower in sight, a sparkling Paris, the "pop" of the champagne cork, the lightness of the bubbles...it's hardly possible to mess up a wedding proposal.
