Sneak peek: Matt James is in for a wild ride on Season 25 of "The Bachelor."

"The Bachelor" is returning soon, and we're taking this opportunity to look back at Bachelor and Bachelorette seasons of years past.

In the show, the chosen Bachelor or Bachelorette has several weeks to weed through a group of men or women to find true love, typically ending in a dream proposal.

Although not every season ends in engagement, many do! From mountain tops to breathtaking beaches, there have been some incredible proposals over the years.

These are our top five Bachelor/Bachelorette proposal dresses. You can see every proposal dress contestants have worn in the photo gallery below.
