A note to any of our male readers thinking about popping the question in New York City: The Rink at Rockefeller Center will open for the season on October 12th and they'll be launching their "Engagement on Ice" program.
One of the most famous and romantic settings in New York, you can take your girl for a spin around the ice, then drop to one knee at center rink for a round of applause from the crowd. The program, which costs $200 from October 10th - November 10th and January 4th - April 2010, and $250 from November 11th - January 3rd, includes front-of-the-line access, two skating passes, rentals, private time on the ice for the proposal, your choice of song played during the proposal, the option to drop off flowers that can be skated out and presented, a champagne toast at the Rock Center Cafe, and a rink-side dinner package at the Rock Center Cafe or The Sea Grill. Reservations are required, so call 212-332-7655 or visit therinkatrockcenter.com. —Lauren Matthews, editor, Brides New York
